“10 Minutes Closer to Freedom”
In this episode of Thoughts from Maharrey Head I talk about the First Amendment, its relation to freedom of speech, and more generally the importance of free expression in a free society.
The recent shutdown of a Donald Trump rally in Chicago has generated a lot of discussion about freedom of speech. I keep hearing people say, “They violated his First Amendment rights.” But the First Amendment doesn’t give anybody any rights.
In this episode of Thoughts from Maharrey Head, I explain the relationship between the First Amendment and freedom of speech. I also discuss the importance of free expression in a free society through the writing of John Stuart Mill.
