The Lake Superior Freethinkers hosted Shane Courtland for a talk at the College of St. Scholastica. Courtland is a Superior native who completed an undergraduate degree at UMD, a PhD at Tulane, and now serves as a leader in the Institute for Humane Studies at George Mason University.
On a recent visit back to his hometown, the Lake Superior Freethinkers astutely tapped Courtland to talk about “the problem of offensive speech, namely whether it is appropriate to silence views that attempt to undermine the dignity of marginalized groups.”
Courtland was eloquent, the conversation was engaged, and the Freekthinkers are to be applauded at their choice.
