Some Thoughtful Perspectives On The Turmoil At Yale And Mizzou

As a free speech advocate, I have been following closely the recent student protests at Yale and the University of Missouri. A number of thoughtful writers are  beginning to share their perspectives on the protests.  Today two articles caught my attention and are, IMHO, worth taking time to read:

Conor Friedersdorf, writing at The Atlantic, has this piece on the Yale protests, entitled “The New Intolerance of Student Activism.”

Univ. of Missouri law prof Thom Lambert, writing on his blog, has this piece on the Mizzou controversy.

I’ll add more links to other thoughtful articles as I come across them.

UPDATE (11/12/15):
