...worst of the kitsch which was widely produced to satisfy the Nazi cultural system. Literature of other kinds was published only in translation and then in order to demonstrate that in the world outside ‘negative’ Jewish influences were perverting art: thus the American pessimist Theodore Dreiser was much recommended and Somerset Maugham was widely read.

The Nazis regarded the cinema...

...The ACLU–Holmes–Chafee approach insisted that the First Amendment was meant primarily to serve the social good, by assuring a hearing for unpopular political views, not to protect individual liberty. This approach gave short shrift to traditional libertarianism, represented by Theodore Schroeder of the National Free Speech League, for example, which insisted on the individual’s freedom of expression, political, sexual, or otherwise. In a tactically shrewd move, Progressive Era intellectuals offered their socially based argument for free speech in an era not...
