Internal Security and Individual Rights Today

By Jacob K. Javits

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Welfare, September 1951

The author, a sitting United States Congressman, argues that the gravest threat facing America comes from efforts by intolerant men to suppress dissent by measures invoked ostensibly to protect the security of the State but actually to destroy individual rights which allow dissent to be expressed. Internal security and individual rights can both be preserved, he maintains.
