Overview Best å holde kjeft?

A Small book about the freedom of speach crisis.

Frank Rossavik is a journalist, writer, editor and commentator in the Norwegian press. In this book he asks the question: Is Freedom of Speech as we know it – one of the foundations of modern democracy – under a pressure that we have yet to see the consequences of?

Rossavik has been following the development in the public debate with a special focus on self-censorship, and how we now have almost rock solid agreements on what you can and cannot say in public. With this book he delivers his points on why we need a more open and free room for debate in the world.

Reviews Best å holde kjeft?

Ingen grunn til å holde kjeft

«Det er ingen grunn til å holde kjeft selv om støynivået er høyt. Tvert imot vil denne boken gjøre det enklere å snakke med mer samlet røst for alle som forstår at også ytringsfriheten er der for en grunn, og at det ikke er å gjøre samfunnet verre.»
