If it's important at UB, non-liberals need not apply
You may not have heard, the University of Baltimore School of Law is sponsoring a panel discussion on homeland security, entitled 'Are We Safer?'
Read the description... Notice that it's the LAW SCHOOL, and not any student group sponsoring this event. Notice that Dean Holmes will be "moderating" the discussion. Why they need a moderator, I haven't a clue, since ALL of the speakers come from the same political/philosophical camp!
As you know, the Federalist Society, the UBFS, and this site are all non-partisan. This, of course, does NOT mean that we are oblivious to politics and the philosophies that motivate political actors. To the contrary, the study of public policy (our main reason for existing) is a study of precisely that.
Therefore, I am, and I hope you are too, furious at the school for using state and federal funds to present a leftist propaganda-fest and calling it a "panel discussion." It's NOT.
I can assure you that no one from the law school or the Dean's office contacted either the UBFS or the other prominent conservative organization at UB. This is shameful.
The reason I'm posting this for you, my dear readers, is because I think that it's our duty to raise the level of discourse on campus. The diversity that counts is that of ideas, because only by the presentation and subsequent competition of ideas will the best policies rise and become refined.
Please stand with me and contact the University to let the powers that be know that you're interested in this important topic, and wonder if they intend to present a panel with more than one perspective, and if so, who will present an alternative viewpoint.
