Socrates’ fateful hemlock. Henry VIII’s death decree for those who imagined his downfall. The 1836 “gag rule” banning slavery discussions in Congress. Britain’s early ban on films criticizing Hitler or praising Stalin.
On today’s episode of So to Speak: The Free Speech Podcast, we are joined by lawyer and writer Eric Berkowitz to discuss his fascinating new book, “Dangerous Ideas: A Brief History of Censorship in the West, from the Ancients to Fake News.”
“Dangerous Ideas” is a comprehensive and insightful adventure through time to examine censorship’s origins and trends.
Also joining the conversation is FIRE President and CEO Greg Lukianoff.
