Against Free Speech

Research output: Book/ReportBook - authored

Abstract

This book examines the right-wing co-option of free speech and liberal collusion, and seeks to skewer the most common arguments made in defence of free speech showing why free speech not only never has been and never will be free, but that it is increasingly being used to legitimise a reactionary racist, sexist and Islamophobic politics that directly counters the very values free speech is deemed to uphold.
