“Everything good we take for granted in a free society depends upon factuality. Without reporters we don’t have factuality.”
By Timothy Snyder (3/10/18)
Without the people who seek facts, we can forget about justice, freedom, and equality. Timothy Snyder is a historian at Yale University, specializing in eastern Europe, totalitarianism, and the Holocaust. His books have received widespread acclaim.
His most recent book, “On Tyranny: Twenty Lessons from the Twentieth Century,” explores the everyday ways a citizen can resist the authoritarianism of today. He is also the author of “Black Earth: The Holocaust as History and Warning” and, forthcoming in April 2018, “The Road to Unfreedom: Russia, Europe, America.”
