In a New Republic essay, Assistant Professor of English Aaron Hanlon takes issue with a Wall Street Journal op-ed titled “Why Free Speech Matters on Campus” by Michael Bloomberg and Charles Koch. “If Bloomberg and Koch really want ‘robust dialogue with their fellow citizens,’ they could start by acknowledging that they wield more stifling influence, and on a greater scale, than any provoked student, radical professor, or heavy-handed administrator does,” Hanlon concludes.
