  1. Liberalism and Permissible Suppression of Illiberal Ideas.Kristian Skagen Ekeli - 2012 - Inquiry: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Philosophy 55 (2):171-193.
    The purpose of this paper is to consider the following question: To what extent is it permissible for a liberal democratic state to suppress the spread of illiberal ideas (including anti-democratic ideas)?
