Most of you are probably too young to remember the stamp act of 1765, but we fought a revolution over it. Interestingly, Indiana University-Kokomo is restricting political speech by taking down clearly temporary signs that advertised a book club my YAL group hosted a few hours ago (books provided by Students for Liberty).
Our book club was assigned to a room that is far from where students normally tread, so I quickly made up signs with arrows to point the way. An art teacher was going to attend, but he said he didn't want to have to search the entire campus to find the place.
After finishing the good discussions we had about Mises, we left, taking down signs as we walked. When I couldn't find any signs I just assumed that a group member had reached them before I could.
Upon arriving home I get this e-mail:
FYI in case you might have missed this when we sent it. I know we sent it over break and sometimes things might get lost of the shuffle. You’ll probably notice that most of your signs have been removed. Anything that’s posted incorrectly and/or not stamped is removed. Thanks.
