Elon Musk: ‘The Bedrock of Democ­ra­cy is Free­dom of Speech’

<div>Elon Musk: 'The Bedrock of Democracy is Freedom of Speech'</div>

Tech mogul Elon Musk unloaded about the impor­tance of free speech and the chal­lenges he has faced deal­ing with the pri­or regime at X, the social media plat­form for­mer­ly known as Twit­ter. 
Dur­ing a live con­ver­sa­tion with Mis­souri Attor­ney Gen­er­al Andrew Bai­ley on March 18, Musk stressed that Amer­i­cans have an unpar­al­leled right to free­dom of speech that must be pro­tect­ed on social media. “No coun­try has the pro­tec­tion of speech that the Unit­ed States does, not even Cana­da,” he said on X Spaces (for­mer­ly Twit­ter Spaces). “So that’s some­thing we should real­ly take pride in and seek to pre­serve. I think that the bedrock of democ­ra­cy is free­dom of speech.”
