AlterNet has published my second political essay.
This one is about free speech on campus – specifically, seven real threats to free speech that don’t get talked about nearly enough.
I’m currently working on the follow-up article, which will analyze and refute the usual arguments we hear from people like Richard Spencer, Milo Yiannapolous, and the rest of their ilk about why Nazis who want to spew racist, sexist, and often outright fascist venom are the victims of those pesky college students who, shockingly, disagree.
Feel free to send me a message here if you have any thoughts on these arguments you’d like me to consider as I write my article.
And please check out Jennifer Berkshire’s blog and podcast, who is a great resource for anything regarding education policy in the United States.
