Roger Kempa – discussion of financial issues.
21. COMMENTS BY BOARD CHAIRMAN
Freedom of speech is backbone of democracy. Demonstrators got us thinking.
Academic environments thrive on freedom of speech. Authoritarian regimes begin by suppressing speech.
References Breuder saying that there was a conspiracy, as quoted in Daily Herald.
Free political speech is not a conspiracy. It is how we govern. We listen to one another, we may not like each other, but it’s part of our process. Bullies will always try to tell you what you should and should not say. Beat the bullies by using rights of speech and assembly.
