Humility and Free Speech on Campus:

FIRE's Greg Lukianoff observes:

[At] the core of the philosophy of free speech is a very beautiful idea: humility. None of us is omniscient and we must at all times recognize that wisdom can arise from unexpected sources.... Professors who remember that their students present a constant opportunity for them to learn and are not merely inductees to be reformed to a "correct" way of thinking better represent the true spirit of both liberty and education. If more professors, students, and administrators approached the views of others with humility and a willingness to learn through the process of debate and discussion we would see far fewer of the types of abuses FIRE fights every day.

Nicely said.

FIRE is also mentioned in today's Mallard Fillmore comic strip, including noting that FIRE's "Guide to Free Speech on Campus" can be obtained free by students. According to the comic strip (that's a phrase I never thought I would write) FIRE's book discusses student's free speech rights, campus speech codes, and how students can fight them.
