Freedom of Speech Wins in Wisconsin
Downs, Donald Alexander
Academic Questions, v19 n3 p50-62 Jun 2006
One might derive, from the eradication of a particularly heinous speech code, some encouragement that all is not lost in the culture wars. A core of dedicated scholars, working from within, made it obvious, to all but the most radical left, that imposing social justice by restricting thought and expression was a recipe for tyranny. Donald Alexander Downs recounts the happy discovery by his Committee for Academic Freedom and Rights, as it campaigned for free speech, that traditional liberalism enjoyed broad, if latent, support, even in the progressive academic community of Wisconsin in 1999. (Contains 24 notes.)
