“I do not believe that the solution to our problem is simply to elect the right people. The important thing is to establish a political climate of opinion which will make it politically profitable for the wrong people to do the right thing. Unless it is politically profitable for the wrong people to do the right thing, the right people will not do the right thing either, or if they try, they will shortly be out of office.”
― Milton Friedman

“Human beings are born with different capacities. If they are free, they are not equal. And if they are equal, they are not free.”

The Long March

On April 17th I wondered:
Is free speech under assault on college campuses? Well, some people, including President Trump, think not.
Then we have this idiot show up to assure us that to think free speech is in danger on campuses (including those where e you can't be sure using the made up pronoun "zir" is the only way to avoid administrative persecution) is a vast delusional right-wing conspiracy.

The vastness is only limited by the number of people who weren't conscripted for the ‘[L]ong march through the institutions.
