Can We Make Any Sense Out Of The Publicity Stunt At the University of Oklahoma?
Here's our best understanding of what led to this so-called hunger strike by some publicity-seeking students.
In a continent far away, and about 500 years ago; there was a great achievement beginning. It was called 'renaissance' or 'the enlightenment'.
Little by little, people regained their liberty by throwing off the oppressions of the thought police and speech police.
It was a new era which led to universities being able to study science and philosophy without the retributions of organized religion breathing down their necks.
Today, those institutions of higher learning have become the homes of the new repressions and speech police.
