Outbreak of Civilized Debate at UNC!

George Leef

In this week's Clarion Call, my Pope Center colleague Jay Schalin writes about an unexpected development -- an outbreak of civilized debate at the University of North Carolina. Last spring, freedom of speech seemed to be on life-support as leftist demonstrators interrupted and harassed speakers they didn't like and didn't think anyone should hear. This fall, however, things have been completely different. The campus has enjoyed a cornucopia of talks and debates featuring speakers from all over the political and philosophical spectrum. This new openness is a big step in the right direction for UNC.
