In this episode of American Thought Leaders, Harvard law professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz discusses his book, "The Price of Principle: Why Integrity is Worth the Consequences," and argues that “unprincipled” partisanship has taken over America. “How dare they call themselves progressives,” says Dershowitz. “They are regressive. They are reactionaries. They are repressors.” One of the top constitutional lawyers in the country, and a self-described liberal Democrat, Dershowitz has been excoriated by both the right and the left for defending highly unpopular public figures. “People love me when I defend people they like and they hate me when I defend people they don't like,” says Dershowitz. “The more unpopular you are, the more likely I am to want to defend you.” Dershowitz shares his thoughts on COVID-19 mandates and censorship, due process and civil liberties, as well as the rise of antisemitism in America. “You see these protests against Zionism by people who have no idea what Zionism is,” claims Dershowitz. “I've been a Zionist from the time I was born. All it meant is that the Jewish people, like every other people, have a right to a homeland.” Subscribe to the American Thought Leaders newsletter so you never miss an episode. * Click the "Save" button below the video to access it later on "My List."
