FIRE Kicks ASS!! See It and Believe It

If you are unfamiliar with FIRE--the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education--you owe it to yourself to watch this new Fire.org video. FIRE works for the type of idea-filled university environment that typifies the ideal for education.

The ideal university is filled with debate, dissent, and heresy--in the best "Freeman Dyson" sense of the word.

If you are a college student, potential student, potential parent of a student, or a college alumnus, you need to be very, very concerned about current campus administrative attitudes toward free speech rights of students and faculty.

FIRE takes on the fascists of higher education head on. And sooner or later, the fascists are going to back down. Every. Time.

FIRE is not the only organisation to champion the rights of free speech on North American campuses, but it is the vanguard non-partisan organisation that will simply not be deterred.
