FIRE Senior Vice President Robert Shibley’s latest Pajamas Media column discusses the establishment of a "civility" institute at the University of Arizona. Robert takes on recent calls for civility on campus and across the country by reminding us that while civility may be valuable, it cannot be mandated without censoring the very speech the First Amendment was designed to protect.
