Freedom of speech is eroding in America and quickly
by Jerri Ann Henry
If you haven’t been paying attention, tune into the dramatic movements to chill free speech on college campuses through “safe spaces” and efforts to silence mass media that resemble authoritarian actions we’d expect to see in China or Russia, but not America. And voices online? They’re under attack too.
It’s no wonder that 1 in 3 Americans say that have less freedom to speak their mind on the Internet today compared to a few years ago.
The Internet has become a useful tool in the sharing of information and ideas that have helped spread freedom, grow democracy, and spark innovation worldwide. This erosion of freedom online cannot be accepted.
