Dave Rubin of The Rubin Report talks to Michael Knowles of The Daily Wire and author of “Speechless” about why we won’t be returning to normal life anytime soon, how he was wrong about conservatives having a better understanding of free speech than the left, and why conservatives and Republicans continue to push a losing strategy in the culture war. In this clip Michael discusses why he wanted to write about political correctness history because he wanted to understand the origins of wokeness and cancel culture. He admits that he went into the project assuming that conservatives and classical liberals had a better understanding of freedom of speech, but he quickly realized it was the radical left who far better understood not only free speech, but the importance of free speech limits. He shares the real history of freedom of speech and why the limitations placed on it actually strengthen it. Michael discusses that conservatives failure has been that their limited government vision of the world can’t compete with the version that liberals put forth. Michael also shares what he thinks of Michael Malice and how anarchism is the other side of the socialism coin.
