    The Fraying of America

    Resource Type: Book
    First Published: 1993
    Propaganda-talk, euphemism, and evasion are so much a part of American usage today that they cross all party lines and ideological divides. The art of not answering the question, of cloaking unpleasant realities in abstraction or sugar, is so perfectly endemic that we expect nothing else.

    First Published: 2008
    While we support freedom of speech and academic freedom, we believe that university administrations have a duty to provide a safe learning environment in which students and faculty are protected by incorrect or harmful ideas. To achieve this safe learning environment, it will be necessary for the university authorities to cleanse the university's libraries of harmful books, to block inappropriate Internet sites, to ban guest lectures who hold improper views, and to identify and prosecute students and faculty who are guilty of thought crimes.
  26. 'Free speech' - as long as it doesn't offend anyone 
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2009
    On the issue of free speech most of the right and much of the left are in agreement, and so too are many liberals, activists, and human rights apparatchiks. They hold essentially the same position on freedom of expression - they are for it -in principle-, but only so long as it isn't used to express views that they find unacceptable or offensive. What they disagree about is merely who gets to decide what ideas are unacceptable, i.e., who gets to censor who.

  28. Free Speech For Me - But Not For Thee
    How the American Left and Right Relentlessly Censor Each Other

    Resource Type: Book
    First Published: 1992
    Hentoff is a passionate believer in free speech who recognizes that if speech is truly to be free, we must protect the expression even of ideas we abhors. He catalogues with equal disapproval the efforts of both the right and the left to censor speech they don't like. While being sympathetic to those who object to allowing bigots, racists, pornographers, atheists, and others of many stripes the right to lay out ideas that one group or another finds repugnant, he makes both an intellectual and an emotional case for allowing everyone to have their say, no matter how much this may offend some. He points out that suppressing speech doesn't get rid of the underlying thought, but merely drives it underground and gives it the benefit of martyrdom.

  30. Free Speech in a Plural Society
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2006
    The argument against free speech is really an argument in defence of particular sectional interests. And that is the best reason for rejecting restraints on speech.

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2015
    UK police now have free rein to create 'dispersal zones' in public places, writes Josie Appleton. This allows them to exclude people for anything from street drinking to looking suspicious, being homeless, protesting, or merely 'congregating'. This represents a serious breach of our Common Law and Magna Carta rights.

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2014
    Since 2011, waves of global uprisings have been erupting as never before. The crisis of representation helped spawn decentralized movements as a manifestation of people’s aspiration to take the reins of their own destinies. For many, the presumption of legitimacy of their governments has been crumbling. What triggered this widespread global crisis? WikiLeaks was a game changer. Their publication of disclosed documents along with established media reaction showed the true face of liberal institutions and the waning effectiveness of the politics of representation.

  43. Hate Speech and Free Speech
    The Wrong Kind of Climate Control

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2011
    Laws against sedition, in whatever guise, are an attack on free speech. Unlike laws against those rare instances of incitement which trigger immediate and actual violence against a present target (as in "get him boys!"), laws against sedition are always couched in vague, open ended terms because the real target is not the alleged "dangers" protected against but some political agenda or ideology that is opposed.
  44. Hate speech in a plural society
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2005
    One of the ironies of living in a more inclusive, more diverse society appears to be that the preservation of diversity requires us to leave increasingly to leave less room for a diversity of views. So, it is becoming increasingly common these days for liberals to proclaim that free speech is necessary in principle – but also to argue that in practice we should give up that right.

  46. Here We Go Again 
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2012
    One thing should be clear. The violence across the Muslim world in response to an American anti-Islamic film has nothing to do with that film. Yes, The Inocence of Muslims is a risibly crude diatribe against Islam, but the violence is being driven less by religious fury than by political calculation. In Libya, Egypt and elsewhere, the crisis is being fostered by hardline Islamists in an attempt to seize the political initiative in a period of transition and turmoil. The film is almost incidental to this process. The real struggle is not between Muslims and non-Muslims, but between different shades of Islamists, between hardline factions and more mainstream ones.
  47. How "Hate Crimes Against Police" Expose the Fatal Flaw Within Hate Crime Statutes
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2015

  53. No platform or no democracy?
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 1996

  54. No Platform Won't Work
    Resource Type: Article

  56. Out Lickspittle Press
    Doorkeepers to the House of Lies

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2010
    Today no one believes that our country’s success depends on an informed public and a free press. America’s success depends on its financial and military hegemony over the world. Any information inconsistent with the indispensable people’s god-given right to dominate the world must be suppressed and the messenger discredited and destroyed.
  57. Out of Bounds
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2012
    Why do we talk so much about hate speech these days? Largely because hate speech has become a way of rebranding extremist ideas to stress their moral content; in other words, of rebranding obnoxious political claims as immoral arguments. Where once we might have challenged such sentiments politically, today we are more likely to seek criminal sanctions to outlaw them.

  61. Progressives shouldn't be begging the police to take more power
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 1984
    The last thing we need is to hand the police even more power to decide what we are allowed to see or read.
  62. Protect the Freedom to Shock
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2001
    Far from being the cornerstone of a diverse, plural society, the refusal to give offence shows respect neither for oneself nor for others. Respect for oneself requires self-belief, a willingness to take a stand, to be unpopular, to refuse to see oneself as a victim easily disturbed by provocative beliefs. Respecting others means not ignoring them but engaging with them by putting them on their mettle and challenging their ideas and arguments. Without heated, entrenched debate a plural society becomes but a hollow shell.
  63. 'Rachel' screening in San Francisco shows a growing movement tired of being censored about Israel
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2009
    A wide spectrum of individuals and organizations attempt to enforce the axiom: there shall be no public criticism of Israel. This platitude ironically goes hand in hand with the view that "Israel is the only democracy in the Middle East." Over the past several decades, self-appointed watch dogs of appropriate Israel discourse have spent hundreds of millions of dollars and poured out enormous doses of vitriol upon any individual or organization that dares to expresses even a drop of sympathy with the plight of Palestinians.

  68. The Rage of the "Righteous"
    On Muslim Outrage at a Danish Cartoon

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2006
    Over and over, in the wake of 9/11, Muslims (and many non-Muslims) have proclaimed that all Muslims must not be judged on the basis of the few that are terrorists. Yes, it was Muslims that flew the airplanes into the World Trade towers, but most Muslims are not like that. That's very true. Each individual should be judged only on the basis of his or her own behaviour. So then why are all Danes being judged on the basis of one Danish cartoon? Why has an embassy been burned? Why have Danish products been taken off shelves?

    Why Both Sides Are Wrong in the Race Debate

    Resource Type: Book
    First Published: 2008
    Malik makes the case that most anti-racists accept the belief, also held by racialists and outright racists, that differences between groups are of great importance. While racialists attribute the differences to biology, anti-racists attribute them to deep-rooted cultural traditions which are typically seen as inherent in the group. Malik argues that these positions are actually quite similar, and makes the case that racism and racial inequality are best combatted by focusing not on our differences but on what unites us. Malik also strongly criticizes the cultural relativism of many anti-racists, and their increasing tendency to reject science as some kind of western imperialist conspiracy to oppress the rest of the world.
