006: Freedom of Speech & the Power of Boycotts
Show Notes

Freedom of speech is on the decline in America. Fewer Americans value free speech, while more are calling for government and corporate censorship. In light of this trend, I talk about a 2021 Pew Research poll, the government's new Disinformation Governance Board, and  Twitter. Freedom of speech is central to a free democracy, so we must fight for it in every generation. I also talk about the power of boycotting et al. If we want to see change, we must make our voices heard.
