Surely you can break down and share your microphones with those you disagree with if they are willing to debate you. “A finance professor at the University of Chicago invited Steve Bannon, the notorious former Breitbart chairman and Trump advisor, to debate globalization, immigration, and populism,” Robby Soave writes on the Reason.com blog. “Bannon accepted.”

“But many anti-Bannon students and faculty don’t want the debate to happen—even though the professor, Luigi Zingales, is an Italian immigrant who wants to challenge Bannon’s nationalist worldview. The Trumpian figure’s presence on campus, they claim, could make marginalized students feel unsafe.”
