Greg Talks College Censorship on Web Series ‘The B.S. of A.’


FIRE President Greg Lukianoff appeared recently on the web series "The B.S. of A." to discuss censorship on college campuses. Greg argues that silencing campus speech teaches today’s students that their highest priority should be to avoid hurting others’ feelings rather than intellectual achievement or engaging with the marketplace of ideas. Greg reminds viewers that if they went to four years of college and never had their ideas challenged, they probably didn’t learn very much.

Harvard’s Tradition of Oppressing Controversial Speech


Last month, Harvard’s Faculty of Arts and Sciences voted to fire a controversial Indian politician who had been teaching uncontroversial economics courses, due to his publication of his political opinions about how to handle terrorism in India. A few months earlier, the dean of the College had instituted a Freshman Pledge stating that "kindness" was "on a par with intellectual attainment," pressuring students to publicly pledge to official Harvard College values. In 2010, the dean of the law school asserted that as a "social justice" law school, HLS ruled certain ideas automatically out of bounds. What has happened to free speech and freedom of conscience at Harvard?
