This week’s podcast is about free speech, currently under sustained assault by the activist left. That seems pretty hyperbolic, and perhaps it is, but only a bit. Through the hour we discuss the most recent events – McCutcheon ruling, Mozilla’s surrender to the activists – and betrayal of their longtime partner, Brandeis University pulling an honorary degree away from Ayaan Ali, and a most recent attack on Dropbox.
How do all the dots get connected? What’s their overall goal? Why the tech sector? Yeah, there’s a theory on that.
We finish the hour with a bit of discussion about the standoff in Nevada between a farmer and the BLM. At this point the only certain conclusion is that the Feds are FAR to involved in our day-to-day lives.
