GMU Law professor David Bernstein maintains that, in a misguided
attempt to eradicate every vestige of "discrimination"
in our society, activists and courts are using antidiscrimination
laws to erode civil liberties such as free speech, the free exercise
of religion, and freedom of association. Civil rights laws today
are being applied in ways that threaten free speech on campus
and in the workplace, the right of local community activists to
speak out against government policies, the rights of private associations
such as the Boy Scouts to determine their membership policies,
and even the rights of individuals to choose their roommates.
David Bernstein explores the social and constitutional ramifications
of this trend in You Can't Say That! "A must-read
for anyone -- left, right, elsewhere -- who seriously cares about
liberty in America." --Eugene Volokh
Professor of law, UCLA, and author of The First Amendment: Problems, Cases and Policy Arguments
