Greg Lukianoff On Cancel Culture, Free Speech & Censorship | The Show

Greg Lukianoff, a First Amendment lawyer and President of the Foundation for Individual Rights and Expression (FIRE), dives headfirst into the pressing issues of free speech and the impact of cancel culture in academia. Lukianoff discusses the troubling trends at prestigious universities, where ideological bias butts up against claims of political neutrality, especially highlighted during recent intense protests over the Israel-Hamas conflict. He presents a compelling, data-backed narrative from his latest book, The Canceling of the American Mind, co-authored with Rikki Schlott, revealing how a culture of censorship is stifling discourse and academic freedom.

Lukianoff is also known for co-authoring The Coddling of the American Mind with Jonathan Haidt.
