Reader comment on item: Profs Who Hate America

Submitted by Maxine Cohen (United States), Nov 12, 2002 at 16:11

Your latest column was disturbing. Our government has never been above reproach. In fact, one of our greatest strengths has been the freedom to disagree with public policy anywhere and everywhere. When did it become politically incorrect to speak out? And isn't discourse especially important now that we are approaching war? And if not at our universites, where? Aren't they the venue for discussion of ideas?

We are about to embark on an aggressive new policy that may have far reaching repercussions. Shouldn't there be dissenting voices? And if not, why not?
