Free Speech and the Battle for Western Culture

Yaron Brook

Presented at: ARI Road to a Free Society

Venue: Hilton Costa Mesa –– Costa Mesa CA

Date: Jan 21, 2015

Above all else, the West’s fight for liberty was historically a fight for the free mind against religious and political tyranny. If knowledge and happiness are the goal, the individual must be free to think and speak without threat of violence, imprisonment or death. This idea is at the root of the West’s unprecedented prosperity. And without this right, ARI could not advocate the new ideas and the new philosophy that can revive the West’s greatness. But today the right to free speech is precarious. This right is under vehement attack by our enemies, the latest being the massacre at Charlie Hebdo, and is being increasingly dismissed by the West itself. Yaron Brook explores the reasons why the right to free speech is being attacked and why it is imperative that we properly defend freedom of speech
