It's Worth Every Minute: In Commencement Address Award Winning British Author Defends Free Speech says “There’s Nothing Virtuous about Being Offended”

Via Billy

Famed British author Ian McEwan stood and gave a stirring and strident speech to the graduating class of 2015 at Dickinson College in Pennsylvania. In his speech he focused on the importance of free speech and passionately called on the graduates to remember to always value and defend this most important of liberties. He is clearly no conservative, but he saves his greatest contempt for the liberals of our day who have worked to silence those who do not fit their politically correct mold… particularly those who have stood against Charlie Hebdo and the prudes on college campuses who seek to silence any dissent.

It’s a brilliant speech and well worth your time – and if you happen to know any of the 41% of Americans willing to end free speech… please share this with them.
