The Threat of Free Speech in the University

Roger Scruton in the symposium 'Assault on Higher Education: Reports from the Front' at Modern Age.

"I do not think there is very much censorship in our universities, other than that imposed impromptu by the students and acquiesced in by a weak establishment. But it has been true for a long time that there are orthodoxies in a university that cannot easily be transgressed without penalty, and that the penalty is not imposed on scholarly or academic grounds but on grounds that could fairly be described as ideological."
