Excerpt from Hans Maeder Lecture Series: Timothy Garton Ash: « Free Speech in an Age of Trumpery » (https://youtu.be/HJUxPm_9AP4) at The New School for Social Research (http://www.newschool.edu/nssr).
Drawing on his new book Free Speech: Ten Principles For a Connected World (Yale University Press), Timothy Garton Ash reflects on the new challenges to free speech that have arisen even in countries where people enjoy constitutionally guaranteed freedom of expression. The free speech we need for democracy, he argues, requires more than just the negative liberty of freedom from prior constraint by the state.
