Brendan O’Neill, editor of Spiked, discusses the failed ‘Voltaire defense‘ used on behalf of Islamic protesters in a British free speech case, why the Chilcot Inquiry is nothing more than non-punitive talk therapy for the state, the scapegoating of Islamic extremism for the West’s abandonment of Enlightenment ideals and how controversial speech in Britain is silenced by legislation rather than challenged by public debate.
