    Free Speech Evolution

    In this podcast, Roger Clark and Professor Barry McDonald, First Amendment Constitutional Scholar, explore the development of Free Speech in America, discussing the origin of the First Amendment and the interesting point that the Founders did not necessarily view Free Speech through the same lens as 21st Century Americans. Their fascinating dialogue covers how Free Speech in the United States has evolved over the years, the distinction between private and government regulation of speech, and the modern-day controversies and debates about the scope of Free Speech on social media and the internet. A key point: Whose right of Free Speech is it, anyway? The social media platforms or the individual users? And how do the platforms influence public discourse and influence democracy in an era of polarized politics? How will pending cases currently pending before the United States Supreme Court redefine the rights of Free Speech in the digital age? The interview is a deep dive into the dynamic landscape of Free Speech and the Freedom of Expression in the United States.

    Money & Politics

    Money & Politics

    In an interview for the Fourscore and Seven Project by the New Majority Foundation, Roger Clark speaks with Pepperdine University's Professor Barry McDonald about the impact of money on U.S. politics, particularly following the Supreme Court's Citizens United decision. McDonald challenges the idea, supported by the Supreme Court, that money equates to speech in politics. He argues that money serves more as an amplifier for speech, creating imbalances in political influence due to disparities in financial resources. Criticizing the Citizens United ruling for allowing corporations and unions to significantly influence politics with their treasuries, McDonald suggests public financing of elections as a potential remedy to reduce the dominance of private money. He also discusses broader systemic issues linked to current campaign financing, such as fostering a divisive political culture and entrenching vested interests. McDonald calls for a thorough reassessment of money's role in politics, including possible electoral reforms and constitutional amendments to ensure a fairer balance between free speech and political representation.
