The revolutionary power of heresy

Brendon O'Neill, Chief Political Writer of sp¡ked has written a new book called "A Heretic's Manifesto: Essays on the Unsayable". We provide a link to his chapter on "The Revolutionary Power of Heresy" where he says 'Freedom of speech has toppled tyrants and propelled humanity forward. We lose it at our peril'.

It is a long read but a fascinating one that provides arguments that are novel and insightful.

Unlike most other he says that words can hurt, but this is very reason for free speech, not against it. Enjoy!
