Why We Should Resist It with Free Speech, Not Censorship

Nadine Strossen

Inalienable Rights

  • Clearly explains the importance of continuing to protect the subcategory of "hate speech"
  • Shows that laws restricting such speech do not effectively reduce the feared harms of "hate speech"
  • Shows that non-censorial countermeasures, including the kind of robust "counterspeech" that has been increasingly vigorous throughout the U.S., is more effective than censorship in advancing the causes of equality and societal harmony
