[Bonus Post] ClandesTime 047: Cultural Warfare and Free Speech

Joining Tom Secker for this discussion is Guillermo Jimenez of Traces of Reality and the Demanufacturing Consent show on Boiling Frogs Post, along with regular guest Pearse Redmond of Porkins Policy Review and Porkins Policy Radio. We talked about three recent examples of the crossover of popular culture and politics – the film The Interview, the attack on the Charlie Hedbo magazine in Paris, and American Sniper. We discussed how the popular dialogue around these events has diluted and degraded the notion of freedom of speech, and outline a more careful and refined version of the same idea.
