While I respect left-liberal Robert Boyers’ bravery in speaking out about this issue, he really misses the main point: left-liberal ideology is inherently totalitarian. If he really cares about intellectual diversity and free speech, he needs to acknowledge that intellectual diversity and free speech are anathema to his own ideology. In fact, he gives himself away upfront when he calls Charles Murray’s views “poisonous” and Dr. Murray’s The Bell Curve “ugly and notorious”. He’s not really interested in intellectual diversity at all – he just pretends he is. He is part of the problem he describes in the rest of the article.
