Our Best Values Include Speech

Bob Cox, in ‘The best test of truth’, makes the case that free speech, one of America’s core values, should be one of our chief cultural exports in an often hostile world. It’s an eloquent essay.

He makes one small error, though, when he says the right to free speech “does not extend to shouting ‘fire’ in a crowded theater…”

It does if the theater is actually on fire.
