Harvard's Tradition of Oppressing Controversial Speech

Last month, Harvard's Faculty of Arts and Sciences voted to fire a controversial Indian politician who had been teaching uncontroversial economics courses, due to his publication of his political opinions about how to handle terrorism in India. A few months earlier, the dean of the College had instituted a Freshman Pledge stating that "kindness" was "on a par with intellectual attainment," pressuring students to publicly pledge to official Harvard College values. In 2010, the dean of the law school asserted that as a "social justice" law school, HLS ruled certain ideas automatically out of bounds. What has happened to free speech and freedom of conscience at Harvard?
