USA Yale Law School University Fights to Protect and Preserve ‘Freedom of Speech’
This ‘Cosmic Philosophy’ applies to every Country in the World.
I was tempted because of my disgust with many Universities around the world to title this treatise on ‘Freedom Values’ as… “Why Universities Corrupted by Anti-Freedom of Speech Ideology must be forcibly closed down.”
American and Australian Universities are Equally Guilty of enforcing anti-freedom of speech ideology. And so are many other countries. Consequently, all such Universities are ‘Enemies of the State’ and should be forcibly closed down by ‘Government Federal Laws’ that have the power to override all ‘State Laws Resistance’. Of course, such an objective will never happen and must not occur, it is the wrong thing to do. What should happen and what can happen are two different things. Instead, the constant chastisement of those guilty incompetent Universities must be persistent until they do the right thing and fight to protect the eternal human right to live free of abuse, using freedom of speech.
A Society without ‘Freedom’ is a society that should not exist.
The Fictional Character in the 1960 historical epic great drama film ‘Spartacus’ made the following truthful philosophy statement…
“When a free man dies, he loses the pleasure of life. A slave loses his pain. Death is the only freedom a slave knows. That’s why he’s not afraid of it. That’s why we’ll win. And maybe there’s no peace in this world, for us or for anyone else, I don’t know.”
Thus, around the globe for the last 5,000 years plus of all Civilizations, this truthful philosophy has always existed as a concern.
I do know Albert Einstein (1879-1955) is right when he said, “We shall require a substantially new method of thinking if mankind is to survive.”
Thus, after beginning my Quest for Truth in 1970-71, I identified through dynamic study the solution to defeating ‘The Habit of War’ and all Anti-Freedom Ideologies. I coined the name in 2007 called ‘Philosophical Intelligence’ the most advanced intelligence in the world, which is founded upon the evolution of 1988 ‘Cosmic Philosophy’ that which I named ‘Cosmicism’ in 2007. In 2014, I discovered that I was not the originator of the coined word ‘Cosmicism’ but I took the use of the word ‘Cosmicism’ far further forward as explained in the below separate read link.
I believe it is far more important that we promote and defend great Universities like American Yale Law School than destroy incompetent irresponsible anti-freedom of speech Universities, which via Chastisement simply need upgrade to ‘Freedom Values’.
Only by living good examples can we rise above negligent anti-freedom belief systems that thrive in Australia and USA and other incompetent countries.
We cannot succeed in protection of ‘Freedom Values’ if we cannot identify thriving high-class examples of Universities that openly and truthfully defend the eternal human right to ‘Freedom of Speech’. Problems cannot be solved without ‘Freedom of Speech’. For every Solution ‘Freedom of Speech’ is needed and is essential to the wholesome wellbeing of a good decent society.

Ps. Xi Jinping President of Communist Beijing China laughs at American Stupidity. Xi Jinping is working hard to build a ‘Communist PLA Military Force… Army, Navy, Airforce focused on defeating the United States of America in War. He will succeed if Americans don’t grow up with Patriotic Loyalty and defend 100% the American Constitution and the essential ‘First Amendment’ which gave all Americans the eternal right to ‘Freedom of Speech’.
Such ‘Freedom of Speech’ must include ‘Zero Tolerance’ towards any person that strives to censor and destroy the right of the people, the citizens of a Nation, to talk freely void of Authoritarian oppression.
Free Speech is now on ‘Trial’ by Foolish People Striving to Close It Down.
‘Freedom of Speech’ is constantly facing unjust oppression by wrong thinking.
Take a look at the constant fear that exists amongst the Chinese people including not only those that want to live free in a pro-democracy but also amongst ‘Communist Member’ leaders that are afraid to challenge Xi Jinping. Living in Fear all of our life is not a happy wholesome society.
Only People who stand for ‘Truth and Justice’ Believe in ‘Freedom of Speech’.
Those persons that oppose ‘Freedom of Speech’ do not stand for ‘Truth and Justice’ and for that reason those persons cannot ever be trusted.
People who do not believe in ‘Freedom of Speech’ lack sense of honour and integrity.

Yahoo Finance USA posted the important opinion on ‘Free Speech’ story by Dylan Croll on November 20th, 2022, titled, ‘You cannot be an academic or a lawyer and not believe in free speech’. (i)
“Free speech on college campuses has become an increasingly polarizing subject, and Yale University is no exception. While some argue that freedom of expression is a convenient justification for hate-speech, other say their views are being stifled in the name of “wokeness”. (i)
Allan Ivarsson comments… The American word “wokeness” is the synonym of the socialist words ‘Political Correctness’. I have observed over the years not only in USA but also in Australia the polarizing thinking and behaviour of Universities which cowardly reject ‘Freedom of Speech’ which is deemed by ‘Authoritarian Mentality’ Professors in University’s and by many extremist thinking students, all of whom incorrectly believe in ‘Woke’ Political Correctness’ denying others the peaceful right to disagree.
Woke Mentality, i.e., Political Correctness ideas are often wrong and unjust, and it is an evil mind that denies others the right to freedom of speech to challenge such wrong thinking ideas. People have the right to agree to disagree in peace that is an eternal human freedom of speech right.
Universities that deny people the right to ‘Freedom of Speech’ are deceitful Universities and are denying people the right to learn dynamic education which must allow opposition points of view in opinions to be tabled for calm discussion, in a peaceful agree to disagree process.
Authoritarianism is evil and people who use Authoritarian oppression of ideas are evil. Woke/ Political Correctness is like Religious Blasphemy Law, it is an evil enemy of ‘Freedom Values’.
Never trust the recipients of degrees from Politically Correct Woke Mentality Universities, until they have the courage to publicly denounce Woke/ Political Correctness and Blasphemy Law.
Dislike Speech is like Hate Speech, a human ‘Free Speech’ right.
Polarizing process is often Authoritarian thinking and behaviour which divides people into sharply contrasting groups of different beliefs and opinions. Anti-Freedom Ideological Beliefs are enemies of every person that believes in the eternal human right to live free in speech, choice and equality provided such beliefs do not ‘Abuse Freedom Privilege’ by denying others the same ‘Freedom Privilege’ rights.
A classic example of an Authoritarian person who denies others ‘Freedom Values’ is Xi Jinping President of Communist Beijing China.
Universities that deny people ‘Freedom of Speech’ are without honour and integrity.
“But for Heather Gerken, Dean of Yale Law School and one of the United States’ leading experts on constitutional law and election law, free speech is critical to the American educational system.” (i)
“You cannot be an academic or a lawyer and not believe in free speech,” she recently told Yahoo Finance.” (i)
A.I. comments… “Here, Here.”
Allan Ivarsson comments... “sad state of wrong attitude amongst younger Americans…
A.I. comments… “Racial inequality, abortion, and gun control top the list of the most difficult subjects to discuss.” (ii) As a professional writer, I find these subjects plus the question of legalization of ‘Cannabis’ as being the most sensitive difficult subjects to write about because emotion runs high in people’s minds. It is sad to be alone in an emotional world armed with only logic and calm wisdom common-sense.
I revisit extracts (ii) from above insight…
A.I. comments continue… These above logistics serious concerns suggest to me that too many Universities have been infiltrated and taken over by anti-freedom ideology professors that are bullying students to submit to their dictatorship authoritarian tactics.
And there is the serious concern that those students who strive to bully oppress ‘Freedom of Speech’ must also be disciplined.
The survival of ‘Freedom Values’ in USA demands that ‘Freedom Values’ must always be protected and defended and that every person and organisation that strives to abolish ‘Freedom of Speech’ which is a ‘First Amendment Constitutional Eternal Right’, should be publicly criticized.
To save a Country… Universities must be Patriotic and defend the American Constitution of the United States. It is in fact an act of ‘High Treason’ to ban ‘Freedom of Speech’.
“Yale University has had a fraught relationship with free speech in recent years. In Fire’s 2021 free speech rankings, the school ranked 198 out of 203 schools with a “poor” speech climate rating.” (i)
“Yale Law School (Yale Law or YLS) is the law school of Yale University, a private research university in New Haven, Connecticut. It was established in 1824 and has been ranked as the best law school in the United States by U.S. News & World Report every year between 1990 and 2022, when Yale made a decision to voluntarily pull out of the rankings, citing issues they have with the methodology used in the rankings. One of the most selective academic institutions in the world, the 2020–21 acceptance rate was 4%, the lowest of any law school in the United States. Its yield rate of 87% is also consistently the highest of any law school in the United States.” #

“Much of the outrage on college campuses increasingly comes from conservatives who argue that right-wing perspectives face a liberal bias. One right-wing group, Turning Point USA, even keeps a database of professors they think discriminate against conservative students.” (i)
A.I. comments… That is a dangerous idea to keep a Public Database of suspected alleged individuals they think are guilty of discrimination. Such a vague allegation about a list of suspects is wrought with dangerous false knowledge thinking that can create volumes of unjust claims.
Ideas must prove true to be wrong, using true justice process. Every person is innocent until proven guilty. Therefore, the idea must be challenged, not the person. If a person tables volumes of wrong ideology ideas, then the character of the person may be challenged.
But looking at a list of suspects void of accurate associated opinion information stated by those suspected individuals, is not a justice list. It is irresponsible to challenge individual characters as suspects, void of accurate provable facts. I shall revisit this list later, so far all I have seen is a list of suspects void of ideas interface.
“In 2015, a group of students publicly berated a Yale professor for his position on the issue of cultural appropriation and Halloween costumes. Earlier this year, a group of students also shouted down a speaker from Alliance Defending Freedom, a conservative Christian group.” (i)
Student Abuse against ‘Freedom of Information’ and ‘Freedom of Speech’.
A.I. comments… I have a big problem with students who focus on abusing other ideas that they don’t like. The word ‘Student’ means a person who is studying at a university or other place of higher education, or perhaps they are only ‘High School’ students i.e., school pupils, or they are just doing a special course they are interested in which may not be done through a University. It could be a correspondence course.
All of this simply means the student is doing a course of learning to gain a better education and understanding. For that reason, College/University Students are there to learn, they are not there to demand that others, including Professors must obey their anti-freedom of speech demands.
Primary and High School Demonstrations must always be outlawed, and Parents should by law be fined for allowing their children to participate in school demonstrations. It is time Students learned to respect the reason school education systems exist. I support the expulsion of students who refuse to respect and obey school rules.
Likewise, Adult Students attending University are there to learn. They are not there to dictate and abuse by protest ‘Freedom of Speech’ ideas they don’t like.
‘Freedom of Speech’ gives us the right to disagree with other ideas. It does not give us the right to abuse other points of view. A group of students shouting abuse towards others is just a ‘Mob Rule’ of hoodlum mentality, bullying others. Such yelling screaming abusive protesting behaviour is ‘Authoritarian Abuse’ and must not ever be tolerated in any University.
Students involved in college campus protests should be arrested and expelled from the course they are studying. It must be an offence to abuse others in mob rule protests. It must also be an offense to abuse professors who teach ideas in a course. If students don’t like the ideas, it is simple find a different teacher. The change is called ‘Freedom of Choice’ to change.
Universities must have tough highly disciplined rules, of codes of behaviour, backed by Zero Tolerance to Campus Protests.
A University may allow ‘Freedom of Speech’ groups to present at a Seminar their ideas on subject. Or the group may represent ‘Belief System’ Ideas or ‘Think Tank’ meetings on a subject. Protest Meetings that focus on abuse, yelling and screaming should not ever be allowed on Campus.
The audience is not expected to blindly agree but rather to quietly listen and if in disagreement, not abuse or heckle the speaker but rather give them the courtesy and respect they deserve in a ‘Freedom of Speech’ Society.
This code of behaviour is essential when listening to Politicians in Parliament, in Societal Speeches. If we don’t agree, with a Politician it is simple, don’t vote for them. This is called Democracy… ‘Freedom of Choice’. Abuse or violence is not acceptable.
Far too many of 21st Century Students are too focused on Protest Abuse using Authoritarian Bully Tactics than simply going to University to upgrade their education.
We do not want ‘Degree Qualified’ people whose lot in life is focused on oppressing others by the use of ‘Protest Abuse’. Such people who reject calm ‘Freedom of Speech’ are enemies of society and must face Zero Tolerance when they strive to harass others. There is no place for Woke Mentality, i.e., ‘Political Correctness’ a Marxist Socialist Dictatorship Authoritarian Tactic that strives to forcibly make others submit to their ideas.
As for ‘Cultural Appropriation’ that is a subject all of its own, I will save that for future visit. This subject does not belong in the field of ‘Generalization’.
I don’t know what the Yale Professor said that caused student protests to overreact. But I do know that ‘Freedom of Speech’ and ‘Freedom of Choice’ is an eternal human right provided such speech and choice does not deny others the same ‘Freedom Privilege’.
As for Halloween, even though I don’t like Halloween, it is a ‘Freedom of Speech’ and ‘Freedom of Choice’ right. The following article written by me, was simply about concerns.
And as for Codes of Behaviour on ‘Freedom of Speech’, I enclose below an essential ‘Cosmic Law’ common-sense code of decency and goodwill, which also correctly rejects all anti-freedom ideologies.
Heather Gerken “In response [correctly] put out a public statement explicitly condemning the student’s [abusive bullying] actions. In another statement released last month, she reiterated the law school’s commitment to free speech. She also outlined several steps the university has taken to promote free speech, including updating the disciplinary code and developing an online resource to make the school’s policies and position on free speech explicitly clear.” (i)
A.I. comments… Notice Dean Gerken’s core statement on the University’s Free Expression Policy. (iii)
“Under the University’s free expression policy, student groups have every right to invite speakers to campus, and others have every right to voice opposition. Our commitment to free speech is clear and unwavering. Because unfettered debate is essential to our mission, we allow people to speak even when their speech is flatly inconsistent with our core values.” (iii)
“The deeper issues embedded in this event are not unique to Yale Law School — they plague our democracy and institutions across the country.” (iii)
Notice her essential comments about disciplinary action. (iii)
With reference to the attached pdf notice below well written ‘Offenses’.
Allan Ivarsson comments… It is good to see one American Yale Law School University defending and protecting the eternal human right to ‘Freedom of Speech’.
Enemies supporting anti-freedom ideologies like ‘Marxist Socialist Communism’ and ‘Sharia Law’ and ‘Blasphemy Law’ are constantly striving to destroy the eternal right of people to live free, as is happening in Iran, Saudi Arabia, North Korea, Putin Russia and Communist Beijing China, under the aggressive leadership of President Xi Jinping.
It is the duty of every caring decent person to oppose all anti-freedom ideology belief systems. There is no place on Earth or in the Universe for anti-freedom ideologies. Zero Tolerance towards such evil ideologies is essential survival common-sense.
Heather Gerken said, “We are dealing with the same questions that are happening on every single campus, across the country. We get a little bit more news about it, because the law school looms pretty large in people’s imagination.” (i)
“Gerken added that she regularly affirms the importance of free speech to the student body. She remarked that the rest of the law faculty supported her efforts.” (i)
A.I. comments… it is Heather Gerken’s persistence that makes the difference to ensure ‘Freedom of Speech’ is always protected.
“I weigh in repeatedly in the community about its importance, I do it at every single orientation. I do it at the beginning of the year,” Gerken said. “And I’m really grateful that my colleagues are doing it with me because it makes a difference when I can say, ‘I’m speaking on… behalf of every member of my faculty,’ that makes a difference when you’re talking to students.” (i)
A.I. comments… It is good to read about Heather Gerken’s persistence. Because I have done the same thing since 1984 when I began my determined quest to identify a ‘Belief System’ more advanced than anything on Planet Gaia/Earth that will stop the ‘Habit of War’ and protect the peaceful right of every person to live free. I found the solution through an evolutionary process which in 2007 I identified as being ‘Philosophical Intelligence’. Persistence was the reason for my success. In 2013 I created the following published commitment…
In 2018 I began taking my fight for ‘Global Freedom’ to the next level when I created a Website. As I grow older now 73 years in 2022 near 74 years old. I have battled many old age health problems including cancer. But my persistence never gives up on the eternal fight to protect the human right to live free. I owe others in the past who fought for my right to live free, and I am duty bound to pass forward the right of the young to live free in peace.
Thus in 2017, I made the decision to publish a website standing for ‘Freedom Values’ against all anti-freedom ideologies.

Persistence for Good Ideals Wins.
“Gerken has made other efforts to promote diversity of thought at Yale. She pointed to the Rosenkranz Originalism Conference, an event she launched in 2019 that features conservative speakers.” (i)
A.I. comments… I never saw this… so I cannot comment.
“We are deeply committed to actually bringing different voices on campus,” Gerken said. “So, with the help of one of our alums, we started an originalism Conference, which is immensely important that all our students get exposed to that kind of question.” (i)
A.I. comments… I don’t know what ‘Think Tank’ ideas are floating out there amongst different speakers and students, but if it proves to be an important idea, I am sure it will reach us down-the-track. But the good news is that through Yale and Heather Gerken and others ‘Freedom of Speech’ is being kept alive and defended for its eternal right to exist. What ideas that become important hallmarks for societies destiny will evolve. If freedom survives, we shall be better off for this ‘Freedom of Speech’ conference.
Heather Gerken became Dean of Yale Law School in 2017. She received her bachelor’s degree from Princeton University in 1991 and her J.D. from University of Michigan Law School, 1994. (i)
Thus, I end this important treatise for the history books.
Allan Ivarsson PhD P.I. 2022 (now 73 years of age.)
Founder, director, chairman of ‘things to come’ called ‘Cosmicism’. The way of ‘Blue Light Cosmic Philosophy’, the way of ‘Cosmic Libertarianism’ which uses the most advanced intelligence in the Universe called ‘Philosophical Intelligence’.
Ps. There are far too many people in life that think they have the right to dictate by force how other peaceful honourable decent people must live. Authoritarianism is not acceptable behaviour. Every person has the right to live free, in speech, choice and equality provided they do not abuse their ‘Freedom Privilege’ by denying others the same right to live free.
There is no place for any form of ‘Totalitarianism’ in a wholesome good decent society.
The Fight to Protect and Preserve Freedom Values…to be continued.
As I said previously… “Racial inequality, abortion, and gun control top the list of the most difficult subjects to discuss.” (ii) As a professional writer, I find these subjects plus the question of legalization of ‘Cannabis’ as being the most sensitive difficult subjects to write about because emotion runs high in people’s minds. It is sad to be alone in an emotional world armed with only logic and calm wisdom common-sense.
A few hours before I published my current Treatise, I received the above secret question from a WordPress Engineer who read my draft before publication. It is an excellent question that needs answering. Because of the emotional sensitivity of the subject, I shall answer it next year in 2023.
I have never been an enthusiastic meat eater since the 1980’s during my age of 30’s and thereafter. But I do eat meat when necessary. Sadly, ‘Homo Sapien’ DNA does encourage us ‘Mammal Humans’ to eat meat. Far too much cruelty to animals has existed over the last one million years plus since humankind began walking upon Planet Gaia/Earth.
This often-complex consideration of concerns about ‘Homo Sapiens’ eating meat is a controversial subject that needs ‘Freedom of Speech’ to explore and discuss. Certainly, it is a subject which needs more information and discussion.
To be continued in 2023.
People can talk to me on my Chatline, but my rules of communication are strict.
