 You make the call. Remember when universities and colleges said they were all about new ideas and free speech? The idea of setting up the Academy was to find truth in diversity. Out of many ideas and thoughts are universal truth could be arrived at. Hence the name "University" from the word universal. One is challenged with views they may not agree with in order to hash out truth.


But not at the dominant liberal Democratic universities across America today. Only far left Democrat liberal dog is allowed to be brainwashed into students  these days. And alternative viewpoint is not even allowed to be considered, mentioned, or written about all the campuses across America today.


 Is it time for new management?

As long as board of trustees or others that run these schools remain liberals themselves, it will not change. Just look at UT. Their BOT is getting more liberal and they have allowed events like Sex Week, going with gender-neutral pronounces, and other liberals causes. The governor is a Republican and his family has been huge donors to the school for years. But his hands are somewhat tied.

I think it's comical colleges and universities have always been proponents of free speech and thinking, but are quick to squash conservative speech and thinking these days.

I agree free speech requires allowing even knuckle heads a forum. It also means after they are allowed to speak challenging the content. Every body is allowed an opinion but not their own set of "facts" when the facts are not accurate. Examples evolution, climate change, biological development etc. When challenged they have to be backed up with real facts. It hurts my soul that many in America refuse to accept "fact" when it is in conflict with self interest.
