Associate Professor of Political Science at the University of California, San Diego
Not Clearly Pro or Con to the question "Is the ACLU Good for America?"
"I do think a well-functioning democracy must have organizations that are committed to defending the civil liberties of all people, regardless of their status or their crimes. Without equal protection under the law, the law itself gradually becomes meaningless, giving way to abuse of government power or the angry rule of the mob."
Experts Individuals with PhDs and JDs or equivalent advanced degrees in fields relevant to the ACLU. Also top-level government officials (such as foreign leaders, US presidents, Founding Fathers, Supreme Court Justices, members of legislative bodies, cabinet members, military leaders, etc.) with positions relevant to the ACLU.
