“This categorical statement surely would have surprised the Framers of the First Amendment, who believed in freedom of speech but not so much in democracy.  The Framers of our constitutional system thought they were building a ‘republic,’ with limited suffrage and many checks on ‘democracy.”

Alan Dershowitz, claiming that the current impeachment of Donald Trump is an attack on free speech and arguing that freedom of speech is “essential to keeping it a republic, but not necessarily a democracy.”
