I recommend this strong piece by Nick Cohen in Standpoint magazine out of Britain, on the downward spiral of the anti-free-speech movement.
Related: Three of my recent pieces on the state of free speech:
* On the German decision: “Is Republishing Hitler’s Mein Kampf the Correct Decision?“ (Portuguese translation.)
* On politicized Islam: “No Reformation for Islam, Please.“
And from earlier, on the philosophical roots of attacks on free speech in the U.S. and elsewhere:
* “Free Speech and Postmodernism: Why Group Warfare Has Replaced Academic Debate“ (and in Korean translation, German translation, and in Kindle e-book format.)
