There can be no democracy without diversity. This paper examines the resistance of early twentieth-century American government to ideological diversity and the resulting abuses of human rights, economic opportunity, and intellectual freedom. Although the focus of the study is on one man in a particular moment of history, the lessons of his life have global implications for our current understanding of systems of exclusion and the importance of diversity to justice. The political activist John Reed lived in our past, but his experience informs our present, and his convictions about equality, tolerance, and access to basic human rights could enlighten our future.
