EARLY ACCESS: Philip Slayton on free speech in Canada, antisemitism, and what it means to be a Jew

I spoke with Philip Slayton, author of Antisemitism: An Ancient Hatred in the Age of Identity Politics, about free speech in the context of the Gaza/Israel conflict

Philip Slayton is a Canadian lawyer, author, and past president of PEN Canada, a branch of an international non-profit defending free expression. His most recent book is Antisemitism: An Ancient Hatred in the Age of Identity Politics.

I spoke with Philip about free speech in Canada, the root of antisemitism, what it means to be a Jew, whether free speech is being quashed within the Gaza/Israel conflict, and whether or not a line needs to be drawn around "hate speech."
