Open debate and discourse is how we determine nothing less than how we order our society.

Open debate and discourse is how we determine nothing less than how we order our society, what is false, what wars we should fight, what polices we should pass, who we should put behind bars for the rest of their lives, and who gets to control our government. This is a deadly serious business, and while protecting children from abuse is a noble goal in many ways, it cannot be allowed to hobble the gravely important exchange of ideas upon which our nation depends. The new emphasis on collegiate "bullying" treats adults like kindergarteners and forgets entirely the seriousness and rightful passions ignited by the issues we face in our democracy every single day.
