With a new foreword for the paperback edition reflecting Trump's election and the recent uproar surrounding right-leaning speakers on college campuses, this unapologetic conservative duo featured on FOX News, Townhall, The Federalist, and CNN combat the silencing of free speech in America.
They're trying to silence you. But don't let them dictate the End of Discussion.
In the age of Trump, a prejudice against free speech is spreading, fueled by a growing movement that believes ideas must be squelched to "protect" people. The presidential election of 2016 should have been the clearest sign yet to the Left that trying to convince half the country to shut up is not the same as actually convincing them. And yet, in its wake, the impulse to stifle and punish "incorrect" viewpoints, and the "deplorables" who voice them, is alive and well. It's a vicious and ironic cycle, especially in academia, where dissenting speech is deemed dangerous and equated to violence -- while actual violence is justified to bully its proponents. From Berkeley to Middlebury, the mob is on the march.
Free speech isn't always pretty, but it's vital to the American way. We have to make America talk again. End of Discussion arms readers to find their voices and fight back against the death of debate.

"At a time when the people in charge are trying to force you to shut up and obey, free speech has never been more imperiled in America -- and Mary Katharine Ham and Guy Benson's arguments have never been more important. Buy this book, for yourself and those you love. You're going to need the intellectual ammo." – Tucker Carlson “This book needed to be written, needed to be published and needs to be read. Best of all, it's great fun to read." —Brit Hume
“End of Discussion will actually start more conversations than it finishes. Mary Katharine and Guy are two of the bright stars of conservative commentary, and their insight and humor comes together well to showcase the absurdities of manufactured outrage and the benefits of taking a breath before launching an attack. End of Discussion is a smart and charming political page turner that was a delight to read.” —Dana Perino, former White House press secretary and cohost of The Five on Fox News
“Here’s why I can wholeheartedly endorse and recommend this book: Mary Katherine Ham and Guy Benson are really good writers. This book had me laughing out loud on yesterday’s flight.” —Jim Geraghty, contributor to National Review
"A brilliant exposé of the left’s outrageous outrage over everything! Free speech isn’t free. It must be fought for. Get in the fight with this fantastic book by Mary Katherine Ham & Guy Benson!" —Brad Thor #1 New York Times bestselling author of Code of Conduct
"I can't think of any two people more qualified than Guy Benson and MaryKatharine Ham to expose the left's decidedly undemocratic efforts to silence opposing views. With their characteristic wit and humor, they take on the outrage industrial complex on behalf of fun- and freedom-loving Americans everywhere." —S.E. Cupp, author and nationally syndicated columnist
"This book will make you laugh—and cry—at a world where honest debate is all too rare." —Juan Williams, Fox News analyst & author of Muzzled: The Assault on Honest Debate
“Come for the writing and the humor, stay for the point: The ‘outrage industry’ is destroying politics. Benson and Ham have diagnosed a new kind of media cancer, one that is metastasizing and eating away at our ability to survive as a free people, freely debating our future. Yes, that sounds serious for a book with as wonderfully light a touch as this, and one so full of laugh-out-loud moments. But it is true. That’s why you need to read this book.” —Hugh Hewitt
