Speaker Series: Free Speech And Responsibility With Sarah Soriel - Leichhardt Library - Leichhardt - NSW
Discussions of rights to free speech tend to be concerned with three issues: (1) if speakers have the right to say what they want, (2) whether this includes the right to vilify or denigrate others, and (3) if governments can censor some kinds of speech. There is, however, surprisingly little discussion in both public discourse and theoretical debates on free speech about the duties or responsibilities that speakers have in exercising the right to free speech with respect to other speakers. In this talk the suggestion will be made that there are duties that obligate speakers with an explanation of what those duties are.
