Re: “'Mob' Attacks Middlebury Prof and Controversial Speaker Charles Murray

From the Middlebury website:
"We expect our graduates to be thoughtful and ethical leaders able to meet the challenges of informed citizenship both in their communities and as world citizens. They should be independent thinkers, committed to service, with the courage to follow their convictions and to accept responsibility for their actions. They should be skilled in the use of language, and in the analysis of evidence, in whatever context it may present itself. They should be physically active, mentally disciplined, and motivated to continue learning. Most important, they should be both grounded in an understanding of the Western intellectual tradition that has shaped this College, and educated so as to comprehend and appreciate cultures, ideas, societies, traditions, and values that may be less immediately familiar to them."

Re: “UVM Prof: Bias Response Team Threatens Free Speech on Campus

...."As for Kindsvatter, he's thankful to have tenure. Without it, criticizing his employer so openly might cost him his job, he acknowledged."

Kudos to Dr. Kindsvatter for clear thinking and sufficient conviction to express it. Perhaps it's time to revive the "assigned reading" concept in education. One might start with the author of these terms: goodthink, thoughtcrime and (a personal favorite) "rectify". No reference provided, find the origin on your own and read those words in context.

And remember kids, "If you don't stand for something, you'll fall for anything" -anon.
