UnLearning Liberty: Campus Censorship and the End of American Debate
Report by Betty Sakai
It is indeed an honor that someone with such comprehensive knowledge about our First Amendment would take the time from his busy schedule to speak at the Forum. To a welcoming audience, Greg Lukianoff presented an overview of his 2014 book, “Unlearning Liberty, Campus Censorship and the End of American Debate.” Citing case after case where universities and colleges have severely restricted free speech on campus, Lukianoff paused to relieve the seriousness of the discussion with a bit of personal humor. Laughing spontaneously with a type of infectious laughter, he provided insights into his own life growing up in the cultural paradox of an always polite British mother and a Russian father who believed that politeness is a form of deception.
