I often hear from academics who are scared to death to publicly dissent from the woke totalitarian apparatus at their universities. Daniel B.

Hooray for Professor Klein! Principled and courageous! I know there are many more like him out there, both on the left and the right. Let him be an example to you. Stand up! Live not by lies!
