More Wisdom from Berkowitz

Peter Berkowitz, writing at RealClearPolitics, has an essay about freedom of expression and the way it is threatened in our culture, especially at our colleges and universities. I have as little use for the censors of the left as for the censors of the right, and Berkowitz is on to something. Of course, a propos of my previous post on Father Zuhlsdorf, let me note that a little negative freedom is a good thing, and only worrisome when it becomes the exclusive understanding of freedom.
