On Truth and Justice

In a singular letter published by the Wall Street Journal, Harvey Silverglate, FIRE’s codirector, writes about why we should not despair about the long-term prospects for justice, fairness, and truth in America. His arguments are relevant, indeed, to FIRE’s efforts to shed light on and roll back abuses of power on America’s campuses. He explains the necessity to liberty of combining the rule of law, the sunlight of media exposure, and the appeal to the mind and conscience of a free society.
