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.
College administrators should eliminate speech codes and defend free speech in all cases. No hypocrisy. No double standards.
