Video: Prager U explores the limits of free speech

It’s college season… which also means it’s also open season on the First Amendment among college campus administrators! In that spirit, a video featuring Greg Lukianoff, president of the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education, might prove instructive.

In the 5-minute video, titled “Does Free Speech Offend You?” Lukianoff answers these questions:

— Should offensive speech be banned?
— Where should we, as a society, draw the line where permitted speech is on one side, and forbidden speech is on the other?
— Should we even have that line?
— And should free speech be limited by things like trigger warnings and punishments for microaggressions?
