Age of rage vs. free speech: We’ve been here before and here’s what happened

“As the nation heads into the July 4th holiday, we have rarely been more divided as a people. Ironically, we are still debating the core values that define us, particularly the right to free speech. Indeed, ‘debate’ hardly captures the rising anger and animosity from campuses to Congress. That is also nothing new. While I have called this ‘an age of rage,’ it is not our first. The United States was born in rage. Roughly 250 years ago, a group calling itself the Sons of Liberty boarded three ships and dumped almost 100,000 pounds of English tea into the Boston harbor. The ‘Boston Tea Party’is still celebrated as an act of defiance that helped spark the American Revolution.” (06/25/24)
