    Dr. Eric Daniels on "The Looming Crisis over Free Speech"

    In this lecture, Dr. Daniels examines the state of free speech in America and finds that it is under serious threat. From campus speech codes to anti-discrimination and harassment law, from campaign finance to commercial speech, Americans today enjoy less and less freedom in communicating their ideas. Today's colleges and universities have become a hotbed of censorship, producing generations of Americans who have accepted suppression of speech as the norm. Dr. Daniels argues that the emerging crisis is a result of the lack of a proper understanding of individual rights, especially property rights. Only by understanding the proper basis of rights can we act to secure our freedom of speech and to protect the rights that give rise to it.

    Dr. Daniels is a research assistant professor at the Clemson Institute for the Study of Capitalism. He lectures internationally on American history and attended ARI's Objectivist Graduate Center. He recently coauthored U.S. Economic Freedom Index: 2008 Report. He contributes to The Objective Standard and wrote a chapter for Abolition of Antitrust.
