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.”

There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions. John Adams
