For John, BLUF: We are part of the struggle for truth, five days a week. Nothing to see here; just move along.
An InstaPundit Blog post by Law Professor Gail Heriot, 23 November 2018.
Here is the lede plus one:
AREOPAGITICA: On this day in 1644, Areopagitica, John Milton’s famed defense of free expression, was published. He wrote:Yes, truth has a struggle, but the solution is not Government licensing of speech. Down that path lies tyranny..And though all the winds of doctrin[e] were let loose to play upon the earth, so Truth be in the field, we do injuriously by licensing and prohibiting to misdoubt her strength. Let her and falsehood grapple; who ever knew Truth put to the wors[e], in a free and open encounter.
