What is free speech? How is it under threat? And why should it be defended at all costs?
In this latest IEA book, Jamie contends that free speech brings fundamental benefits to society, most notably by promoting the growth of knowledge and providing an essential bulwark against tyranny.
But there are new attempts to limit free speech, which Jamie seeks to argue against. With free speech under threat, the book also proposes a way to curtail such constraints. And finally, Jamie also issues a rallying cry: Those who prize free speech must once again come to its defence – as he outlines exactly “Why Free Speech Matters”.
