Martin Dyckman: Memory of FSU professor’s enduring lesson on free speech, tolerance

A professor named Lewis M. Killian gave an enduring lesson on what freedom of speech should mean to a college campus. A good idea that someone can remember and keep forever is that nothing is more dangerous to a democracy than the suppression of speech. Without free, speech, there is no freedom.

Key Takeaways:

  • Lewis M Killian was a great mentor and champion of free speech for the author.
  • Suppression of free speech inhibits the creation and growth of new ideas.
  • It is important to allow free speech, even if you don’t agree with the ideas, to allow for debate and growth.

“Nothing is more dangerous to a democracy than the suppression of speech.”
