Thoughts, essays, and writings on Liberty. Written by the heirs of Patrick Henry.

“They (the emperors) frequently abused their power arbitrarily to deprive their subjects of property or of life: their tyranny was extremely onerous to the few, but it did not reach the greater number; .. But it would seem that if despotism were to be established amongst the democratic nations of our days it might assume a different character; it would be more extensive and more mild, it would degrade men without tormenting them.”     Alexis de Tocqueville

The Harvard Fiasco

by Eric

As Stanley Kurtz, at NRO, points out:

So Summers behaved badly. But that just shows how serious the problem of our politically correct campuses is. Students face a daily choice between speaking their mind and harming their own career prospects by alienating the professors who control their grades and recommendations.

The Harvard faculty continues it’s tyranny of the majority. Summers was one of the folks actively working to reverse the politically correct and authoritarian culture of our university campuses. It appears, at least in the short term, that the culture tyrants have won. Intellectual honesty and open discussion of issues will not be tolerated at Harvard. The lesson will not be lost on the students.
