‘Thou Shalt Be Civil, Or Else….’

Check out FIRE co-founder Harvey Silverglate’s blog post over at The Free For All about our recent victory over San Francisco State University’s speech code. Harvey concludes:   
Of course, there’s nothing wrong with civility, but, like much that is virtuous, it must be the product of voluntary self-restraint, not orders barked by an intrusive (and unconstitutional) campus feel-good bureaucracy. Magistrate-Judge Brazil said he would issue a written opinion, which we’ll be looking for. Meanwhile, let us each do a good deed and find someone today to whom to be voluntarily civil.
