The Cover Story, Part 2

Nick Desai and Emily Ghods have written an open letter to Dartmouth, in which they acknowledge that “the cover was a mistake.”

They offer further missives upon the best approach for those of a conservative bent to confront misplaced liberal dogmatism on campus, stating, in part:

The best course for those of a conservative disposition is to employ evidence, learning, logic, and wit to combat what Orwell called “the smelly little orthodoxies now contending for our minds.” Because much about Dartmouth is liberal, this intellectual combat must necessarily seem conservative, though, occasionally, the orthodoxies will not be creatures of leftism, and the arguments we employ must be merely true.
