Alan Dershowitz Says COVID-19 Concessions Must Be "Temporary"

The Dom Giordano Program
Monday, April 6th
Alan Dershowitz, famed scholar of civil liberties and constitutional law, joins The Dom Giordano Program to discuss the surrender of personal freedoms in a time of crisis. Dershowitz, who has a great new book out titled Guilt By Accusation, explains the pervasive nature of a reduction of rights that began prior to the virus, rearing its ugly head in the #MeToo movement. When the conversation turns to back to the current situation, the surrender of civil liberties when facing potential disaster, Dershowitz makes it clear that any concessions made must only be temporary and the general populace needs to be aware to the potential of personal permanent freedoms being taken away. Dershowitz also gives examples throughout history of instances in which similar permanent rights were removed under the guise of a solution to a temporary problem. (Photo by Drew Angerer/Getty Images)
