Home Short Berry on University Censors Short Berry on University Censors By Jeffrey Polet - December 1, 2015 1 Facebook Twitter Email Print http://www.kentucky.com/opinion/op-ed/article47230635.html RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Short Dirt, Manners, and Patrick McManus Short Localism in the New York Times, Wendell Berry on Dairy Farmers, and More Short From 1948, to 1968, to 2018 (and Beyond?) 1 COMMENT I did my grad work at UK, I remember flare-ups over that piece, when I was there. It doesn’t look like the arguments against leaving it alone have gotten any more persuasive than they were when I was a student there. If an historian were going to make a principled argument against the mural, you’d have to invoke Nietzsche’s dictum about useful history requiring a measured dose of forgetting, as well as remembering, but I don’t see any of the critics making principled arguments about anything, just a lot of bandwagon-jumping.
