Today on Critical Thinking in the Real World

On today’s show, we’re talking about personal safety, freedom of speech and commemorating 9/11.

While at first glance it may not seem the connection between those topics is obvious,  they are interrelated.  The First Amendment is an awesome freedom granted in the United States.  It is a privilege which shouldn’t be abused or taken lightly and it is extremely controversial.  Just because we can say something, doesn’t mean we should.  I believe free speech is its best antidote.  If you don’t like what someone else says, you are free to say so in public. 

First, Margaret McSweeeney will join us to discuss her book, Pearl Girls: Encountering Grit, Experiencing Grace and her mission to support a Safe House in Chicago.    Then we’ll discuss the all important and most controversial Freedom of Speech Americans are afforded and tasked with using wisely.  Finally, we’ll talk abou commemorating the anniversary of 9/11.
