FEAR AND BUTTHURT at UC San Diego. “Though modest on a national scale — it’s a proposal by one student, about one student paper — it’s emblematic of a trend in modern college students. It’s the Magna Carta of Me-Me-Me, the Ninty-Five Reasons You Shouldn’t Be Able to Say That. . . . Why is a petty gesture of attempted censorship notable? It’s notable because it reflects a dangerous trend. Never doubt that the existence of Colin King and his ilk threaten not only the mild annoyance of the UC San Diego campus, but our rights. We rely, as a society, on shared values. Those values include the rule of law and freedom of expression. Never doubt how crucial they are. There will always be a few Colin Kings. But a society made up of them is doomed.”
