Freedom of Expression

Freedom of speech is one of our most fundamental rights as Americans, guaranteed in the First Amendment and held dear by liberals, conservatives, and libertarians. But this freedom has become fraught in America today. From college campuses to social media to sports fields to Presidential tweets, battles over the right to express ourselves, and how we may or may not do so, are reaching a fever pitch given political polarization, racial tensions, and “identity politics. How should this basic right be interpreted in the context of our times? Are lies and “fake news” protected speech? Does the First Amendment’s speech clause need a 21st-Century upgrade?
