“Scholarship cannot flourish in an atmosphere of suspicion and distrust. Teachers and students must always remain free to inquire, to study and to evaluate, to gain new maturity and understanding; otherwise, our civilization will stagnate and die.”
- U.S. Supreme Court
“Liberty is meaningless where the right to utter one’s thoughts and opinions has ceased to exist.”
- Frederick Douglass
The bullying, epistemic absurdity of wokeism is being challenged by secular scholars at elite universities. See "The Moral Center Is Fighting Back on Elite College Campuses."
Wokeism gives university students two options; "Join a perpetual shouting match or withdraw to a safe space. The next generation deserves a better choice." (See "Vanderbilt's Bold Stand for 'Neutrality'.")
