Judge Napolitano, the great constitutional scholar and legal analyst for Fox News, recently gave a dynamite talk to our Mises U students on the real meaning of the 1st Amendment. While many protections in the Bill of Rights have been almost completely eviscerated by a lawless federal government, the Judge finds reasons to be optimistic about the current state of free speech in America. In fact, he suggests that 1st Amendment freedoms actually may be expanding—even as much of the Constitution becomes a dead letter. This is a compelling talk you won't want to miss.
