Martin Column on Free Speech in Columbia Review

In his latest column on the Columbia Journalism Review website, Justin Martin, a UMaine College of Liberal Arts and Sciences Honors preceptor of journalism, wrote about certain countries’ laws that make the denial of genocide a crime, therefore limiting free speech. Martin argues that banning one form of speech for ostensibly noble reasons makes it easier to subsequently ban other forms of speech, evidenced by the fact that countries that banned Holocaust denial in time moved to ban broader denial of crimes against humanity.
