The New (and Old) Attacks on Free Thought: 20th Anniversary of Kindly Inquisitors

"Kindly Inquisitors I really put up there with On Liberty as among my favorite defenses of freedom of speech," says Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE) founder Greg Lukianoff in his introduction of author Jonathan Rauch on the 20th anniversary of the seminal book. "It is concise, it is beautiful and it is a moral defense - not merely a legalistic defense - of why free speech matters."

Rauch spoke with the New York Times' John Tierney about the book's legacy in a lively conversation at New York City's Museum of Sex on October 15, 2013.
