Freedom of Expression

Individuals have the right to hold their own ideas and opinions, and to express and receive ideas, opinions, and information. Government should not – itself or in cooperation with private entities – compel, censor, or regulate expression, or any methods of communication, including in cases where the public may deem such expression as offensive or obscene.

Specifically, we support:

  1. Open debate or expression in a "marketplace of ideas".
  2. The ability of private individuals, groups, and companies to prohibit subjectively offensive material on their property, physical or virtual.
  3. The deregulation of television, radio, cable, the internet, blockchain, and all other forms of communication.
  4. The right of suspects, defendants, and convicted criminals to open criminal proceedings and communication with the media.
In addition, we oppose:
  1. The use of political violence and vandalism, including at protests.
  2. Interference or intimidation by government in news media, such as by prosecuting whistleblowers, suing journalists, discrediting the media, or raiding newsrooms.
  3. Speech codes, dress codes, clothing mandates, and other policies that restrict discussion of ideas in public spaces or at public colleges and universities, or limit such expression to "free speech zones" or other designated areas.
  4. Restrictions of the right of adults to make, distribute, possess or view sexually explicit material.
  5. Bans on flag burning and mandates to salute a flag.
  6. Mandates to conceal beliefs or profess any religion.
  7. Requirements that property owners post material or allow others to use their property as a venue for expressing views.
