In Context: Dual Tracks of Free Speech

One of the most fundamental God-given rights is the right to speak freely. Throughout history, if God tells us to speak, we have a right to speak, and any government should protect that broad right, even if that speech is about the government itself.

This week, Senate Majority Leader Schumer said, “We don't need to look that far into history to see what happens when we go down the dangerous road of censorship and suppression. When free expression is weakened, the mob is empowered. The groundwork is laid for further discrimination, intimidation, and, God forbid, increased violence.”

If he had been talking about the practice of medicine, and how medical professionals should have the freedom to speak about early treatment of the coronavirus, his comments would have been timely and helpful. No, that speech is being suppressed as misinformation. Track #1.
