No Safe Spaces: Free Speech Under Attack

mentioning Michael McConnellvia Independent Institute
Thursday, November 7, 2019

Once upon a time, universities were the ultimate forum of ideas. Today however, college campuses have become the most intolerant places for diverse and even conventional viewpoints. The First Amendment, intellectual freedom, and the very idea of free speech are under attack with threats, bans, and even violence. A growing number of Americans don’t even believe you have the right to speak your mind if what you have to say might offend someone, somewhere. They advocate for campuses to be “safe spaces” in which open debate and discussions are not allowed. This disturbing movement has now been extending beyond colleges and into the wider world. Will we all be silenced for expressing ideas that may not conform with the politically correct? And what can be done to restore constitutional and civil liberties?

Jack Goldsmith is Shattuck professor of law. As such, he is known for his work on the legal aspects of terrorism, national security, and other fraught topics in international law.

Monday, October 14, 2019

When Ronald Reagan got behind the effort to save the ozone layer, there was much less scientific consensus than there is now on climate change. “I had two private meetings a week with President Reagan,” said George P. Shultz, the former president’s secretary of state. “We talked about it. He became convinced that it was a real big problem.” But not all scientists were convinced, and their uncertainty was holding up action.
