Free speech and intellectual freedom – some thoughts

Denyse O’Leary – Free speech and intellectual freedom – some thoughts

Recently, commenting on my “Message to Canadian readers: Make intellectual freedom an election issue”, fellow freespeecher Rob Breakenridge wondered why I prefer to talk about the decline of “intellectual freedom” in Canada rather than “free speech.” (I can’t just now find the link, so this link takes you to his show, The World Tonight.)

I am glad he asked. It is for the same reason as I prefer to talk about civil rights rather than human rights.

Good food for thought, unlike the pizza I had last evening.
