I just watched the HBO documentary, Shouting Fire: Stories From the Edge of Free Speech. In the film, director Liz Garbus uses her father, First Amendment attorney Martin Garbus, as a lens through which to explore four freedom of speech cases tried over the course of American history. I was riveted by the complexity of the issue as shown through these cases, one of which was Garbus’s decision to defend the right of a group of neo-Nazis to protest.
