Most want range of view­points

The Daily Herald - - OPINION -

What a good Opin­ion page on Aug. 31. First, I very much ap­pre­ci­ated the “In Our View” editorial “Free speech its own safe space.” May I of­fer a book rec­om­men­da­tion: “Un­learn­ing Lib­erty: Cam­pus Cen­sor­ship and The End of Amer­i­can De­bate,” by Greg Lukianoff, pres­i­dent of Foun­da­tion for In­di­vid­ual Rights in Ed­u­ca­tion.

Sec­ond, I en­joyed Steven Ep­ple’s let­ter, “Our po­lit­i­cal sys­tem works against mod­er­ates” and, like him, will be vot­ing while very un­happy with the slate (and I look for­ward to read­ing the Mann and Orn­stein book).

Fi­nally, re­gard­ing the “Sch­wab/Robin­son Sur­vey” is­sue, count me in as a fan of both colum­nists, as well as of most of the opin­ion writ­ers fea­tured in the Her­ald (Mil­bank, Har­rop, Parker, Krautham­mer … et al.). I’m sure a sur­vey would find that many (most?) read­ers en­joy the range of view­points.
