My Letter to President Harter on behalf of Hoppe

February 6, 2005

Dear President Carol C. Harter,

Universities are supposed to contribute to the development of character in their young charges. All too often they prefer to breed spineless, spoilt youngsters, forever poised to receive offence and ever eager to deploy Soviet-style procedures to destroy careers and reputations.

The complaining student was offended by Prof. H. Hoppe's comments about the connection between broad group characteristics and life styles and time preference. For his own sake, make the student apologize for his snide tactics and teach him to debate, not defame.

Respectfully, Ilana Mercer
