FREE SPEECH 7: Could limits on speech result in totalitarianism?

Professor Jeremy Waldron, New York University

Is the entirety of the developed world already lost? Jeremy Waldron, University Professor in the School of Law at New York University, doesn't quite agree. Equality and dignity, he tells us, are essential to free speech and hate speech is an "environmental issue.” Waldron is interested in the rule of law, democracy, security, torture, and homelessness. He is the author of The Harm of Hate Speech (2012) and Dignity, Rank, and Rights (2012), among others. One Another’s Equals.
