Essay Question 1

Is limiting or banning fake news a restriction of liberty? Whether or not it is a restriction on liberty, is it justified?

This essay requires you to make two arguments.
To address the first question you must argue how a conical thinker (from our text) would answer this question.
The evidence you must supply are ideas and passages from a primary text.

The second questions requires you to make your own argument, including theoretical or empirical evidence.

 Your essay must conform to the following guidelines:
 - Between 700 – 1000 words (excluding quotes and bibliography)
- APA or MLA format (although cover page is not necessary)
- Makes use of at least three scholarly sources, one of which must come from the textbook*
bibliography (non-scholarly sources are welcome beyond the three scholarly ones)

* The textbook is a key resource for this essay, and so it must be cited in the bibliography. But it
will not count as one of your scholarly sources.
