If You Don't Like Milo


Voltaire once famously said that “I disagree with what you have to say, but I will fight to the death for the right to say it.” Well, technically, he didn't say it. College students these days, as most recent surveys show, seem to have the opposite sentiment: “I disagree with what you have to say, and I will hoot and holler like a wild animal and smear my face with blood until you stop saying it.” Voltaire is rolling in his grave at what modern academia has devolved into. Or at least he would if he had said the quote that he didn't say.
