The Tyranny of Silence by Flemming Rose

In the brutal aftermath of what happened today in Paris at "Charlie Hebdo," you should all check the great book by Flemming Rose, "The Tyranny of Silence."

The book precisely deals with the cartoon, published by Danish newspaper, "Jyllands-Posten," in 2005 which ignited a global debate on the future of free speech, and what it means to be a citizen in a democracy and in a world increasingly multicultural, multireligious and multiethnic.  Flemming was the cultural editor of the newspaper. The book was published by the Cato Institute in Nov 2014.
