Nadine Strossen, “HATE: Why We Should Resist it With Free Speech, Not Censorship”

3 mins read


Nadine Strossen, is an activist, professor, and was the first woman and youngest president of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU). She is also the author of the book “HATE: Why We Should Resist it With Free Speech, Not Censorship,” which explores arguments around “Hate Speech” vs. “Free Speech.”

We discuss the definition of hate speech, and how one quantifies harm caused when hate speech is directed at individuals or groups. We also explore legal arguments around censorship, as well as, non-censorial methods for curbing hateful speech.

Like many of you, I was driven to "do something" after the 2016 election. The "something" I did was to launch the Electorette podcast. My aim with The Electorette was not to analyze every single tweet; nor to rant ad nauseum about just how unhinged the voice behind said tweets are. What I do want to accomplish is further the sense of community and strength experienced during the Women's Marches around the world, provide some solutions for getting out of this mess and to bring brilliant minds (lady minds) together, so that together we can move towards creating the open, welcoming democracy that we know America truly is. #TheFutureIsFemale
