Intelligence Squared Debate: Are Liberals Stifling Free Speech On Campus

Open and shut case, really.
   Johnson and Mayer gave the negative a better run for its money (rhetorically speaking) than I would have predicted--though largely via irrelevant arguments. I don't think they were intentionally engaging in sophistry, but many of their arguments simply didn't count against the proposition, but merely for some other, nearby one. But they were fighting a steeply up-hill battle. And you're not really going to beat Lukianoff and Powers on this one.

Fortunately, we have Dinesh D'Souza to protect free speech.

Say what you will about D'Souza...*Illiberal Education* was a good book.
