The national security and civil liberties tensions of the World War II mass Japanese American internment (incarceration) link 9/11 and the 2015 Paris-San Bernardino attacks to the era in America darkened by accelerating discrimination against and intimidation of those asserting rights of freedom of religion, association, and speech, and one marked by increasingly volatile protests against racial and religious discrimination. This text discusses the broad civil liberties challenges posed by these past-into-the-future linkages, highlighting pressing questions about the significance of judicial independence for a constitutional democracy committed both to security and to the rule of law.
