  • Alan Dershowitz

This is especially true with regard to the Trump presidency, which did not cause this profound division but has drawn it to the surface, making it the dominant paradigm of political debate. Both sides scream "lock 'em up," criminalizing political difference instead of making substantive criticisms of opposing views. This deeply undemocratic fallacy-that political sins must be investigated and prosecuted as criminal-is an exceedingly dangerous trend. The underlying problem, Alan Dershowitz argues, is that we have weakened our national commitment to civil liberties. The vibrant center is weakening, with traditional...read more
