As we all know: "Freedom isn't Free"...The battle goes on... 'power to the oppressed'--the religious white male patriot.
On Speech Is Free, Sometimes

So there's the situation at UCSB. However, everything must be seen and understood in context. Here is what's going on at Harvard:

Ok. I can accept this notion that there is no free speech on campus. I've learned my lesson. There is only politically correct speech as defined by the University. Lesson learned. Non-affiliates keep this in mind.

"The class of "No technical solution problems" has members. My thesis is that the "population problem," as conventionally conceived, is a member of this class. How it is conventionally conceived needs some comment. It is fair to say that most people who anguish over the population problem are trying to find a way to avoid the evils of overpopulation without relinquishing any of the privileges they now enjoy. They think that farming the seas or developing new strains of wheat will solve the problem--technologically. I try to show here that the solution they seek cannot be found. The population problem cannot be solved in a technical way, any more than can the problem of winning the game of tick-tack-toe".
On What’s on Your Plate?

I ask you what has 'free speech and commentary' led to on this long string of comments?
The Cathars called this the 'endura'....

Food Justice! There's a concept. Clearly there are too many people. How about more wars? Or people with high consciousness could commit suicide, leaving more on the plate for others.
Garrett Hardin, a former professor at UCSB long ago (R.I.P.) talked and wrote about these ideas. His seminal paper was called the 'Tragedy of the Commons'....I hope his work will be a major theme of this conference.
And not too much on cow farts please.

Here is a free speech protest in 2005. As you can see from the picture it is massive, emotional, and triggers bad feelings. Can it be that some free speech content is more acceptable than others at UCSB? I hasten to point out that this is a non-affiliate display well beyond the rule of Regulation 100014 and clearly well-after the time that Reagan laid down the God-like rules for free speech on campus as MRSDOVERSHARP would have us believe...Where were the outraged faculty members like Associate Professor Millar-Young or other concerned faculty on this day. The administration? Am I missing something? Here's a picture of the outrageous display.

Are you actually saying MrsDoverSharpe that the "Associate Dean" made a statement? Yes or No?
Which Associate Dean?
Are you attributing his actual words correctly in your comment?
(You are very INaccurate about what Regulation 100014 says...but I'd be repetitious to point that out...)
But a statement from an Associate Dean about the matter is indeed of interest. Now please confirm if you are being accurate...and can you cite where this statement comes from?

Associate Professor Millar Young's page in the Feminist Studies Department. Check for yourself...http://www.femst.ucsb.edu/people/acad...

aka MrsDoverSharp continues to suck the life out of facts...
Associate Professor Millar-Young's dissertation is "A Taste for Brown Sugar: The History of Black Women in American Pornography."(as cited in Feminist Studies department website)
The Department says on the website, she teaches pornography et al.
So ....can we put this issue to rest, please.
