published 1 year ago by Carnegie Council for Ethics in International Affairs

The Supreme Court's 1919 decision in "Schenck v. United States" is one of the most important free speech cases in American history.

In this fascinating talk Bollinger and Stone explore how our understanding of the First Amendment has been transformed over time, and how it may change in the future to cope with social media and other challenges.
