“How Our Universities Have Betrayed Our Core Constitutional Values and What We Can Do About It” was a talk presented by Stuart Taylor , Jr., Princeton University Class on 1070, the Princeton University.
The Princeton University James Madison Program in American Ideals and Institutions sponsored the lecture on campus on Oct. 24. The fact that this lecture occurred is unremarkable as
academically this program has been a bulwark of a small but prominent force supporting conservative views in constitutional law and public affairs. The astonishing fact is at a time when many believe that core constitutional values are being betrayed both on campus and by local governments like Princeton, the only public discourse and related media coverage occurs under the impenetrable umbrella of political correctness gone wild. No contrary viewpoints are aired in the pubic sector, at the school board, presentations in town hall, lectures in our famous Sands library or elsewhere community– wide.
A while ago , I authored a published article titled “ The Rule of Law in our Democratic Republic”. The basic themes are the same as those of Stuart Taylor without the “What we can do about it!” To even
start correcting our course, our community must allow even foster unfettered discourse on the subject of betrayal of “core constitutional values” and “the Rule of Law” in our society.
This is NOT about choosing our next president in perhaps the most divisive election in 100 years(?) . It’s about where we are headed in the next two generations or more. Here and now is the worst place and time to stifle, even prohibit in “safe zones?”, this discussion within our universities and the elite Princeton towns of our country.
