Free Speech

Persona Non Grata – The Death of Free Speech in the Internet Age By Flanagan, Tom – 2014

The author, a professor who has worked in political campaigns, chose his words poorly for a minute or so. He was misinterpreted, and was branded a front page pariah. This could not have happened so suddenly before Youtube and Twitter. The message is clear: make sure your words are Politically Correct at all times, because you could be recorded at any time.

The book is well written, and gives a window into the back rooms of Canadian politics in the last 20 years.
