BPC Bulletin: U.S. Writers on the Democratic Left Consider Free Speech
The summer 2021 issue of Dissent — a left-wing journal published in the United States — devotes several pages to arguments about free speech.
Five writers present different perspectives.
“A Modest Exercise in Freedom” by Brian Morton
“Whose Free Speech?” by K-Sue Park
“The Left Needs Free Speech” by Katha Pollitt
“A Struggle, Not a Debate” by Natasha Lennard
“Social Media’s Sad Passions” by Asad Haider
The Book and Periodical Council was formed in 1975 as the Book and Periodical Development Council to provide a venue for members to discuss industry issues, address mutual concerns and undertake projects for the benefit of Canadian writing and publishing.
