Episode 32: Radical intolerance in higher education

Michael Schaus

Free to Offend Episode 32 | Guest: Professor William Jacobson, LegalInsurrection.com

Higher education isn’t exactly the bastion of free ideas and critical thinking it once was.

In fact, it is among the most intolerant landscapes in modern America for anyone who doesn’t toe the progressive line on things like “anti-racism.”

Professor William Jacobson of Cornell Law School, founder of LegalInsurrection.com, joined the show to talk about how this culture of intolerance in academia, and ideologies like “Critical Race Theory,” are causing lasting damage.

Communications Director

Michael Schaus is communications director at the Nevada Policy Research Institute and is responsible for managing the organization’s messaging with the public, the media and NPRI’s membership. He is also currently a policy advisor for the Heartland Institute.

Prior to joining NPRI, Michael worked in media as a national columnist, a political humorist and a radio talk show host in Denver, Colorado. Active in both print and radio, he shared his insights and free-market economics perspective with large local and national audiences.

Michael became interested in economic theory earlier in life while employed in the financial sector. As the liaison between a local community bank and the Federal Reserve, he acquired an in-depth understanding of just how manipulative big government can be toward industry and enterprise. It was that experience with big-government intervention that initially led him into public-affairs commentary.
