What's allowed in public discourse and what isn't? Is there a logical limit to the parameters of public debate? When is someone being 'canceled' vs. facing the equal & opposite reaction of people who don't want to hear them? What are modern 'thought crimes'?
Liana Kerzner (@redlianak) and Maus Merryjest (@bywordofmaus) discuss these topics, framed by the war of 'open letters' between famous people who support unfettered free speech and famous people who argue for reasonable limits and the false binary between free speech and dignity for the marginalized. Liana and Maus' thought journey takes them through the accomplishments of John Lewis, the rantings of J.K. Rowling, and, perhaps, a middle way that actually encourages open debate!
