Why Free Speech Matters and the Arguments You Can Use to Defend it From Woke Authoritarians

Last week, the Free Speech Union hosted the launch of Jacob Mchangama’s new book Free Speech: A Global History From Socrates to Social Media, in conjunction with the Academy of Ideas. Jacob gave a short lecture, giving the audience a whistle-stop tour of the history of free speech, then Dr. Joanna Williams and I took turns to respond and Claire Fox did her best to moderate. We then had a lively Q&A. The whole thing is available as a podcast here. Well worth a listen.

Stop Press: You can read a summary of Jacob Mchangama’s argument in the March/April issue of Foreign Affairs here.
