In a fascinating discussion that covers an amazing amount of ground, Free Speech Union spokesperson Dane Giraud speaks to Sociologist Mike Grimshaw of the University of Canterbury. Mike discusses the open society that relies on free speech to function versus the retreat into identity groups censorship encourages. The boys talk through tagging and street art as a means of expression for the underclass and why council-sponsored art may be a calculated way to silence these voices. And Mike unpacks the concept of the radical loser - the disenchanted male who is likely to view censorship as a provocation to action. This is surely a packed episode with a banquet hall brimming with food for thought. Enjoy. And don't forget that the Free Speech Union's debut film "Last Words" is about to go on a nationwide cinema tour. Have you got your ticket yet? If not book today!
