No one can doubt that we should strive for civility. But problems arise when we are told that “uncivil” speech has made a campus “unsafe” — and that university officials should make a campus safe again by punishing uncivil speakers.
To combat these threats to “safety,” campus administrators have morphed into civility police.
On some campuses, “bias response teams” investigate professors’ online comments.
Several universities, including Yale, may soon introduce a smartphone app that lets users anonymously report offensive remarks.
These anonymous reports will allow university bureaucrats — and perhaps even the public — to compile a directory of “subversive” professors in the spirit of dictatorial regimes.
One can easily imagine dueling “watchlists” compiled by liberal and conservative activists with the shared aim of chilling unwanted speech.
