Free for All: Defending Liberty in America Today by Wendy Kaminer is the topic of discussion in today’s book forum sponsored by The CATO Institute. You may watch or listen live at noon EDT today. Here’s the promo blurb:
In this new collection of essays Wendy Kaminer takes aim at a wide range of threats to civil liberties. The author of I’m Dysfunctional, You’re Dysfunctional and Sleeping with Extra-Terrestrials, Kaminer looks at privacy, freedom of speech, sexual harassment, separation of church and state, “anti-individualism left and right,” and the ways that civil rights can conflict with civil liberties. Many of the essays criticize what she sees as sacrifices of civil liberties after September 11. “Blind faith in government is nearly as dangerous as terrorism,” she warns.
