Many would consider freedom of expression to be the most basic human right. In truth, the right to life is the principal right because without that, all others are moot. However, when one’s life is not in immediate danger, free speech is a cornerstone of human rights. But is our speech actually free? In a very real sense, it has cost us dearly (in terms of those who’ve lost their lives fighting for the freedoms we enjoy). While we can rightly claim it as a human right, that doesn’t mean that it can’t- and isn’t being violated with increasing regularity. In this episode, Brendan Malone helps us understand why it matters.
