“If you believe as I do that ideas have consequences, what happens on American college campuses will eventually percolate its way down and through the culture as a whole. And if we lose free speech on college campuses, we will eventually lose free speech in the country.”

C. Bradley Thompson, quoted in Alex Morey, “Faculty Focus: How Three Professors Banded Together to Beat Back a Free Speech Threat at Clemson” (Dec 28, 2015) (HT: Amy Peikoff via The Heidelblog)
