    Censor Squads and the Destruction of Open Discourse with Ken Pope

    Censor Squads and the Destruction of Open Discourse with Ken Pope

    Speech First recently released a report looking at bias reporting on college campuses "Free Speech in the Crosshairs" where we found 56% of universities solicit anonymous reports from students on one another for incidents of "bias" or other forms of speech and expression. We found that many universities define "bias" as political affiliations, or simply expressing ideas or opinions that others may find offensive...These insidious policies are found at universities across the country and are laying the groundwork for a world of peer-enforced censorship similar to the likes of what we saw in East Germany. Join Speech First's Cherise Trump and Ken Pope from the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation as they delve into the implications of a society that accepts and implements policies like "Bias Reporting."

But we often forget to use these moments as opportunities to review the history and purpose behind Article III of the US Constitution, the rule of law in America, and the role judicial power plays in our government. Cherise Trump is joined by Adam White, a Senior Fellow at the American Enterprise Institute to discuss the sustainability of our judicial system in America, how this relates to increasing trends of judicial activism over judicial neutrality, and whether politics will ever, or should ever stay out of the courts.
