Free Speech on Campus


This is a pretty extensive review of a book by Donald Alexander Downs called Restoring Free Speech and Liberty on Campus. It seems like something I will pick up eventually. It's amazing to think that through things like speech codes, 80% of universities restrict free speech in ways that the government could not. Private schools aside, why is it that state schools do not have to follow the Constitution? Speech codes and other PC bullshit have turned colleges into islands of fascism. The whole idea of the free marketplace of ideas has just been thrown in the trash.
