    Hard to tell if the campus drones were enforcing a dumb “free speech zone” with no other purpose, or if they thought the Constitution was a subversive document and used the zone thing as an excuse.
    I hear various items from the top-tiers such as that social justice should trump free speech, or that due process victimizes women who are supposedly victims of the evil menz.
    But I figured CC were more connected to the rest of the world.
    Rot’s spreading.
