The Mero Moment: The Open Society and the End of Freedom - June 9, 2016
If there is one redeeming aspect of his character – if any at all – people seem to like that Donald Trump says what’s on his mind. People who like Trump often say that they like how he speaks. People like candor. I, too, often “think out loud,” just say what’s on my mind in the moment. But, unlike Trump, my candor can get me in trouble. Trump, it seems, is made of Teflon for many voters.
But this commentary is not about Donald Trump. It’s about thought and speech and its context in a free society.
