Is the Enlightenment over? By Robert Tombs at the Freedom Babbleon

In this brilliant and inspiring 4 minute contribution to the Freedom Babbleon, Robert Tombs helps us understand the great progress in freedom of thought and speech heralded by the Enlightenment. Today’s onslaught on these great values, he suggests, could signal their end unless we defend the freedom to think, speak and write. Especially he explains, when we disapprove of what is said, we must as Voltaire did, defend the right to say it.
