Quote of the day, April 19

College of Charleston Professor Heath Hoffman, on freedom of speech

“I do believe that all ideas and perspectives—even great ideas that marshal unanimous support—need to be scrutinized under the light of day as close examination often reveals flaws,” Hoffmann said. “Allowing ideas—good or bad—to ‘fester in the darkness’ does not allow for dialogue, which my colleagues and I believe is central for positive change and intellectual and cultural growth.”
