We Must Defend America’s Freedom of Speech
Right now, fierce debates are raging across the country over the limits of free speech. This piece from The Federalist cites a cautionary tale from France — related to controversial tweets by the National Front’s Marine Le Pen — to remind us why our unique liberties are so important, and what can happen if we limit the right to free expression to only those who share our views. We must always stand up for liberty. As President Reagan once said, “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction.” I couldn’t agree more.
