There Was Never Free Speech at Berkeley

There Was Never Free Speech at Berkeley: The University of California at Berkeley is back in the news, along with its familiar appellation, “The Home of Free Speech.”

No, it isn’t.

Now, Berkeley may have been the campus on which Mario Savio started the so-called Free Speech Movement. But that does not necessarily correlate with the attainment of free speech — not then, and assuredly not now.
