Harvard President Emeritus and former Treasury Secretary Larry Summers recently sat down with Bill Kristol to discuss political correctness and freedom of thought on college campuses; the boycott, divestment, and sanctions movement during his tenure as Harvard President and now; and whether and how higher education should change. At about 11 minutes into the interview, Mr. Summers cites the Federalist Society's efforts to foster debate on legal issues as a model the left should look to. The video below begins at that point, but we encourage you to watch the whole interview. It's both interesting and enlightening.
