“I have been part of five institutions- the Catholic Church, The university of Redlands, the United States Navy, The University of Chicago, and Harvard University. If I were required to rank them to the extent to which free and uninhibited discussion was possible within them, I am very much afraid that the Harvard of 1972 would not rank near the top.  In the last two or three years, the list of subjects that cannot be publicly discussed there in a free and open forum has grown steadily, and now includes the war in Vietnam, public policy towards urban ghettos, the relationship between intelligence and heredity, and the role of American corporations in certain overseas regimes.”
