    Is Liberty Losing Ground in America?


    David K. Shipler

    Winner of the Pulitzer Prize

    Author, The Rights of the People(Knopf, 2011)


    Susan N. Herman

    President of the American Civil Liberties UnionAuthor, Taking Liberties(Oxford University Press, 2011)

    with comments by

    Paul Rosenzweig

    Visiting Fellow, The Heritage Foundation

    moderated by

    Tim Lynch

    Director, Project on Criminal Justice, Cato Institute

    America is widely known as the land of the free, but is it also true that liberty has been yielding

    ground to government power? Two recent books maintain that civil liberties have dramatically

    eroded here in recent years. ACLU president Susan Herman argues that our constitutional

    system of checks and balances is breaking down because of exaggerated claims of

    presidential power in our war against al Qaeda terrorists. That shift in power has made it

    difficult for the courts to fully examine whether certain policies are constitutional. Pulitzer Prize-

    winning author David Shipler does not dispute the erosion of liberty since the 9/11 attacks, but

    he says the Bill of Rights has also deteriorated because of the war on drugs. His book relates

    numerous stories of searches without warrants, punishments without due process, and other

    unreasonable procedures. In criminal justice as in counterterrorism, Shipler argues, the

    executive branch has grabbed immense power and distorted the process of determining guilt

    or innocence. Join us for a discussion of these legal trends and what can be done to correctthem.

    How Much Ivory Does This Tower

    Chairwoman, House Subcommittee on Higher Education

    It is often asserted that taxpayer support for higher education is dwindling, endangering thenations economic future and forcing higher tuition prices. In reality that is far from the truth.

    Almost any way you slice it the taxpayer burden for Americas ivory tower has been on the rise,

    while the returns on investment have been at best indeterminate and at worst significantly

    negative. Please join us for this important discussion of why the federal role in higher

    education needs to be seriously reexamined.
