Abstract

Although the choice of free speech issues—campus speech codes, pornography, Holocaust revisionism, and the honor of German soldiers—seem unrelated at first sight, a comparable ongoing controversy is taking place in Germany and the United States in the area of free speech. The underlying question is whether free speech should be limited when the target of offensive speech is a group that has historically been discriminated against.

Keywords: free speech, hate speech, comparative constitutional law
