More straightforward, unvarnished truth-telling by Professor Decosimo. twitter.com/DavidDecosimo/…
"It should not be too much to ask that they firmly hold the line between ignorance and knowledge, between subjective and objective, between our feelings and the facts."

"... is one in which the fundamental ideals of truth-seeking and academic freedom are not only defended, but actively promoted.....

Fine essay on absurd & dishonest attack on @hoovlet 'While activists insist biological reality of sex binary is wrong-headed & pernicious, the true threat to science and human dignity is idea that in order to support anyone’s rights we must deny reality.' link.springer.com/content/pdf/10…

My opening statement at the Princeton conference on institutional neutrality in non-sectarian colleges and universities, sponsored by the James Madison Program's Initiative on Freedom of Thought, Inquiry, and Expression. mirrorofjustice.blogs.com/mirrorofjustic…
With his flailing, embarrassingly juvenile attacks on Ron DeSantis, Donald Trump sinks deeper and deeper into self-caricature as a schoolyard bully. As to whether DeSantis can BE bullied, Trump should check with the folks at Disney or other Woke corporations.

My remarks to Governor Ron DeSantis and others at the Governor's Mansion in Florida on the purpose of academic institutions and the conditions for their flourishing and the fulfillment of their truth-seeking mission. The Governor's remarks precede mine. youtube.com/watch?v=0pnG2G…
The Initiative on Freedom of Thought, Inquiry, and Expression of the James Madison Program at Princeton will be livestreaming the public sessions of our conference on institutional neutrality and the mission of nonsectarian universities, tomorrow (Friday, November 11th). Tune in! twitter.com/MadisonProgram…
I had hoped that Trump wouldn't run in 2024. I now see that it would be best for the GOP and the nation if he does run, and if (as I believe would happen) DeSantis beats him and goes on to election as President. It would be a repudiation of Trumpian narcissism and Woke ideology.
In the cold light of the morning after, I don't see how either of these points can be denied. The big winner: Ron DeSantis. The big loser: Donald Trump.
Peter Boghossian, whose brilliant work on "ideas laundering" cast a powerful light on strategies for inducing people to accept notions that are in themselves rather obviously dubious, makes some good points about the manipulation of language. twitter.com/peterboghossia…
The U.S. Territory of Guam has elected a Republican as its (non-voting) Delegate to Congress. For more than three decades the Democrats have held that seat.
Profound reflections on human history, the human condition, and human possibilites from Brother @CornelWest. Progressives and conservatives alike, please remove the ideological lenses and lay down the political cudgels for a few minutes to consider and learn from what he says. twitter.com/AnnahitaMahdav…
Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia now won't be able to run for re-election in 2024 as a Democrat and win. Perhaps he doesn't intend to seek re-election. The only alternative is for him to switch parties or declare himself to be an Independent and caucus with the Republicans.
Someone needs to tell Democratic candidates for office, party operatives, and their supporters in the media that claiming that if the Republicans prevail tomorrow this might be the last election we ever have is not only wrong, it's stupid. It doesn't move anyone into their camp.
I see that Tulsi Gabbard, out there campaigning for Republican candidates all over the country, has adopted, as have many Republicans, Rush Limbaugh's trope of referring to "the Democrat Party." (That's a little move of hers that I failed to foresee and predict.)

For people interested in law & political philosophy, I commend Renovatio, the journal of Zaytuna College, our nation's first Muslim liberal arts college. The journal and college draw on the riches of the Jewish, Christian and classical traditions as well as the Islamic tradition. twitter.com/RenovatioOnlin…

I agree with what Professor Barnett says here. Ron DeSantis, if he runs--which I hope he will--will be the most formidable opponent Donald Trump has ever faced. Name-calling and juvenile insults will not work against him. He could beat Trump. twitter.com/RandyEBarnett/…
The best advice then, and the best advice now: "with malice towards none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right as God gives us to see the right."
Mr. Beschloss is an intelligent man who has produced some fine historical studies. How does he come to embarrass and discredit himself with an unhinged rant of this sort? It is what comes of living in an echo chamber--what Saturday Night Live called "The Bubble." Don't do that. twitter.com/CalebHowe/stat…
Greatly looking forward to teaching "Freedom of Speech and Freedom of Inquiry" at Princeton next spring, with thanks to @McCormickProf, @kewhittington, and @MadisonProgram. registrar.princeton.edu/course-offerin…

Prof Decosimo raises an important challenge. Our elite and other university faculties and often student bodies really don't much reflect American identities. Should they? That's a question worth debating. Should they in some respects but not in others? Why these and not those? twitter.com/DavidDecosimo/…
The Democrats didn't need to lose the white working class or small business owners. They don't, or didn't, need to lose the Hispanic working class and small business owners. These aren't people who naturally love Republicans. All they needed to do was not embrace Woke extremism.
If anyone wonders why ordinary Americans are so contemptuous of our bubble-dwelling elites, consider the adolescent behavior of employees of Penguin Random House described here. They are the fundamentalists they accuse their political adversaries of being. wsj.com/articles/pengu…
What was the publicly understood meaning of the word "person" in Section One of the 14th Amendment when it was ratified in 1868? Did it include unborn human beings? Like it or not, the evidence that it did is overwhelming. John Finnis and I prove it here: harvard-jlpp.com/wp-content/upl…
I'm against grade inflation for many reasons. The most fundamental is simply this: Students have an unalienable right to be told the truth about the quality of their work--whether they like it or not. (By the way, that's also why I'm against grading on a curve.)
One month from today--on November 30, 2022--we will announce the winner of the inaugural Rabbi Jonathan Sacks Book Prize. The Prize is administered by Yeshiva University. I had the honor of serving on the selection committee. We read some truly splendid submissions. Stay tuned!
I can claim to have predicted a lot of crazy things that have happened, but I did not foresee that childish ideologues vandalizing and gluing themselves to magnificent paintings and other great works of art would become a thing.
It's crazy to identify with a category like "progressive" or "conservative" and then decide your positions on issues based on that identification. Think about each issue and decide what you believe is true. Don't worry about whether the position is regarded as "left" or "right."
Wishing Paul Pelosi a swift and full recovery from the appalling violent assault he experienced. I know him a little--having nothing whatever to do with politics--and he's a nice guy. No one should experience what happened to him--especially an 82 year old in his home. Dreadful.
We are one month out from the release of "Abraham Lincoln: Redeemer President" by Allen Guelzo, Director of our Initiative on Politics and Statesmanship. The story of Abraham Lincoln’s faith and intellectual life. Pre-order now! bit.ly/3ezOX11

For decades, the Harvard Law Review was the best student-edited legal journal in the country, with the Yale Law Journal and Columbia Law Review not far behind. But stuff happens. Today the most intellectually compelling student-edited journal is @HarvardJLPP--and it's not close.
The Vatican's stance towards the Communist Chinese leadership and abandonment of Cardinal Zen and other faithful Chinese Catholics. @CrazyRadicals observed that the policy is unfathomable. And that's true. I added that the policy is unconscionable.
Imagine how great America would be if we had a healthy party of conservation & a healthy party of reform whose leaders and members respected each other despite political differences, shared a commitment to our core values and basic institutions, and honorably engaged each other.
My friend Steve Schneck, serving on the US Commission on International Religious Freedom, is right to call on the Vatican to change course in dealing with the Communist Chinese regime and begin standing for the freedom of Chinese Catholics and others. ncregister.com/cna/us-religio…
Anyone who has experienced a truly deep friendship knows what a blessing it is. I'm grateful to Veritas Forum and Washington University for this video in which I tell the story of what--and who--brought me together with my beloved brother Cornel West. youtube.com/watch?v=jky-nZ…
As theorists of law from Plato and Aristotle forward know, law is a teacher. Laws and changes in law shape consciousness and thus culture. If law teaches that "marriage" is simply a form of sexual-romantic companionship or domestic partnership, the norm of monogamy will collapse. twitter.com/AviWoolf/statu…

3/ An approach to political morality in which subsidiarity played its proper role would provide a sane, sensible, human dignity-respecting alternative to collectivism in its various forms, on the one side, and extreme or doctrinaire forms of individualism, on the other.
