The (All) Unknowing Podcast with Daniel Curtis

Daniel and Peter discuss five reasons freedom of speech is the most critical component of governmental structure and the fundamental rights it should guarantee every citizen without fear of retribution or censorship. Historically, these rights have played a vital role in the fight for civil rights and social change in the United States. However, freedom of speech has limitations, and in recent years these limits have been widely debated. Now is a critical time to stand up and resolve the surmounting issues surrounding freedom of speech before future generations are ill-prepared to deal with the repercussions.

·        Why the concept of a “utopian” society is an unrealistic ideology and a danger to freedom of speech.
