Freedom of Speech & Foreign Interference

“We have a critical challenge here. This is one that may be befalling other countries, but we may have it in good order as well. There is a clear tension between some of the issues around freedom of speech and democratic participation, as well as dealing with fundamental issues of national security. If we’re not ahead of this and seen to learn from the activities of other nations, then we will only be waiting until there’s a time in the future where other countries seek to take advantage of our charity, our generosity and our freedom to subvert not just the democratic process but, ultimately, the authority and strength of the state.” Tim Wilson MP
