FORA.tv to Broadcast Intelligence Squared US Debate June 26: "Individuals & Organizations Have a Constitutional Right to Unlimited Spending on Their Own Political Speech"

San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) June 26, 2014

WHAT: FORA.tv, the leading online destination for video programs from the worlds best conferences and events, will broadcast the Intelligence Squared U.S. (IQ2US) Oxford-style debate, Individuals and Organizations Have a Constitutional Right to Unlimited Spending on Their Own Political Speech.

Is independent political speech the linchpin of our democracy or its Achilles' heel? For democracy to work, some say, citizens (and corporations, and unions, and media outlets, and other voluntary organizations) must be allowed to express their views on the issues, candidates, and elections of the day. This proposition, they say, is exactly why the First Amendment protects the freedom of speech and of the press. On this view, restrictions on independent political speech undermine and subvert our constitutional structure. But others take a different view: If everyone can spend as much money as they like to express their political views, then some voices will be amplified, magnified and enhanced - while others will be all but drowned out. On this view, it is this inequality of influence that subverts our constitutional structure - and restrictions that level the playing field actually enhance rather than abridge the freedom of speech.

WHEN: Thursday, June 26th at 6:30 pm EDT


WHERE: The debate will be streamed live at intelligencesquaredus.fora.tv. The debate will be interactive with a Twitter feed following the conversation around the event.
