Support Free Speech? You Should Be Rooting for Elon!

“Everyone seems to have an opinion on whether an Elon Musk‐​led Twitter is good for free speech, and much of that debate is happening on Twitter. On the surface, this fact goes a long way to prove the point. While many people don’t like to engage with critics of their beliefs, shutting those alternate voices down does not promote free speech. It does the opposite. So, letting the debate flourish is clearly good for free speech. And the continued economic health of Twitter is a big step in protecting the right of Americans to express their thoughts and opinions. In attempting to save Twitter, Musk is engaged in the process that makes America tick.” (11/17/22)
