Good speech on free speech


The Centre for Independent Studies Big Ideas Forum was held in Sydney on 1 August. Counterpoint was there to record the speakers.


You Can’t Say That: Freedom of Speech & the Invisible Muzzle

The theme for this year’s CIS Big Ideas Forum is political correctness and its insidious march into Western society. Ostensibly a tool of civility and respect, it is often, on closer inspection, a way of silencing unpopular opinion, and is a serious threat to freedom of speech.

Join Dr Thilo Sarrazin, former central banker and author; Dr Janet Albrechtsen, columnist with The Australian; Professor James Allan, bills-of-rights scholar; and Brendan O’Neill, pulls-no-punches journalist and editor of the popular online UK publication spiked for a closer look into the pervasive problem of political correctness.

 

Listen to the Counterpoint recordings:
