Living on the Edge: Free Speech in Edgy Times

Dwight Duncan

Dwight Duncan

This season, the Leadership Forum is examining "The Four Freedoms" as set forth by Franklin D. Roosevelt on January 6, 1941 in a speech before Congress. In Part II of this series, Professor Dwight Duncan will address Freedom of Speech. Is this freedom currently under siege any more than at any other time in American history? What about Freedom of Speech in other countries? Is progress being made or have we slipped back into the restrictions of earlier days?
