A clash between administrators and students at Yale went viral. Why that is unfortunate for all concerned.
Nicholas and Erika Christakis have an undisputed right to free speech. No one has argued that they, as individuals, should not. But students have exercised their own free speech in speaking against the way Master and Associate Master Christakis have treated their office. This incident is not analogous to a professor offering an unpopular view, or a controversial speaker coming to campus.
As far as I can tell, the political correct student activists are attacking “free speech” by using “free speech” and the people fed up with political correctness would like to defend free speech by silencing the students. I’d love for some explanation why saying “I’m offended” is somehow less worthy “free speech” than saying “you’re to easily offended!”
