Column: Free inquiry is dead, long live free inquiry

"Rejecting potential truth in the service of an ideology is dangerous. The subjection of reality to a preordained framework can have wide-reaching ramifications for society. Collective ignorance will always be worse than controversial truth in the long run."

Viewpoints: Memes Connect Carolina

Column: UNC needs greater focus on class diversity

My view of the University is rather simple: the University is a place where those students who are the most talented should go after high school to continue their education. Attempts to create lasting social differences through universities can be better achieved by other means.
