One college bucks trend, embraces free speech and the American Flag
By Stephanie Sanchez | January 3, 2017 | Comments


The place where Barack Obama spent the first two years of his college career was the place where a 9/11 memorial was vandalized mid-September of last year. Occidental College is now responding by implementing programs and events intended to educate students on freedom of speech and the terrorist attacks on 9/11.

The school has released a list of several activities planned by the faculty and administration that will be accomplished during the upcoming spring semester. The events include:

-“A speech and roundtable discussion on the principles of free speech on college campuses, led by Erwin Chemerinsky, dean of the UC Irvine Law School and noted constitutional scholar.”

-“A performance of ‘Defamation,’ a play that will challenge students’ preconceived notions about issues such as race, class and the law by turning the audience into the jury.”

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin
