Persona Non Grata
The Death of Free Speech in the Internet AgeBook - 2014
From a professor and former advisor to Prime Minister Stephen Harper, a passionate and edgy defense of free speech in Canada, and the role the internet plays on the issue. While Flanagan's book is hardly the first on the subject, what make this different is the component of the internet, a tool that is very much a double-edged sword when it comes to freedom of expression - it allows people to have an unfiltered voice to say what they want, and it allows those to use it to be judge, jury, and executioner against those whose opinions they disagree with. This is a controversial book on a controversial topic and it will get a lot of media attention.
