From TED Radio Hour, 7:06 pm on 12 August 2018

The Right To Speak

Should all speech, even the most offensive, be allowed on college campuses? And is hearing from those we deeply disagree with ... worth it?  Four TED speakers explore the debate over free speech.

Zachary Wood: Why Should We Listen To Views We Find Offensive?
Jeffrey Howard: Should A Culture Dedicated To Free Speech Limit Hate Speech?
Elif Shafak: What Happens When Different Viewpoints Are Silenced?
James Kirchick: Who Benefits From Unrestricted Free Speech?
