It's not the complete basis of your view, of course. But anyone interested can go into the archives and find an exchange between us where I defend the standard Brandenburg v. Ohio view that you need incitement to immanent and serious illegality to warrant proscription, and you defend the view that the mere prospect that the racists or fascists might someday win if we let them talk is enough, given the content of their views and the bad things they'd do. I pointed out that this is the view of Dennis, which is still technically law, and you said that was an aspect of Dennis you agreed with. --jks
