And I think you are arguing we need to Make an affirmative case for those Values on college campus it's not just a Defense but an affirmative case for Those values that leads to the obvious Question of how how do you do that well Well you're exactly right we we can't Just be passive and let the culture of The society tell us what we should be Believing we should be introducing our Students to the idea of a an enlightened Self-governance can only happen through Through an informed citizenry and what We do is we introduce these Concepts to Our students because they're not really Hearing them like they should in K Through2 and create an environment where We have this self-governing discourse That happens on campus it's this civil Dialogue where we talk about hard things Together in Community you know I I um we've spent Four hours this morning talking about it It's something I'm passion about the Idea of Free Speech but um and I I think You're making the case not just for a Socratic environment of debate and Freedom but also the you know it's you Get you get these students as you just Said who go through K through 12 who may Not have received the affirmative case For these values and I don't think there Are many universities today where they Will receive that heyy here's what's
