The central reason society has to protect free discourse is because it is the fundamental problem-solving mechanism. A by-product [of free discourse] is the necessity to allow people to say offensive things, stupid things, foolish things. Partly because they’re malevolent at times, but also because it’s very frequently the case that when you initially attempt to formulate an argument, you do a very bad job of it. [This is because] you haven’t formulated the argument yet. You have to be allowed to stumble around like a moron, because it’s the only way you’re going to trip over the truth.
I honestly weep for the universities. Somehow, one man lecturing on very basic and reasonable ideas about free speech warrants this migraine of a protest.
I am all for empathetic approaches and seeking to understand the other side. However, I’ve listened and read and found the other side desperately wanting. I have little sympathy for the mentalities demonstrated in this video. These are grown adults - not children (despite the infant-like behaviour demonstrated here) - who are individually responsible for their own learning and world-views. These are the “future leaders of the free world”. And it is this hostile, smothering approach towards dissenting ideas that is corrupting the intellectual integrity of academia. It’s shameful.
Truly, it takes a unique sort of dumb to believe that drowning out and silencing free debate and discussion is the right thing to do at a UNIVERSITY of all places. Debate the idea yourself. This is the purpose of education. If you’re not willing to have your ideas challenged, please, for goodness sake, drop out.
