The Firefly Fans Who Teamed Up With Neil Gaiman To Fight For Free Speech

One day, Professor Jim Miller at the University of Wisconsin put the following poster on his classroom door:

What happened next is related in this video from Fire, The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education, and it wouldn’t be doing you any favours to spoil the story in advance. Suffice to say, Neil Gaiman is powerful, Twitter is a wonderful tool for disseminating information and You Can’t Stop The Signal.

I agree that there’s something a bit wrong when Firefly, wonderful as it is, has a stronger and more vocal constituency than basic freedom of speech, something that should be of great importance to more people than any one TV show could ever even dream of. Having said that, it’s brilliant when a shared passion unites people for a meaningful ideal.

Interesting footnote: Joss Whedon was not mentioned by name even one time during that video. Either that or I’ve gone Whedon deaf and can’t hear his name any longer. That would explain why my wife suddenly seems a bit less talkative too.
