A group of students calling themselves The Movement issued a list of 83 Demands to the Hamilton College administration and trustees.

Many campuses are seeing sets of “Demands” issued by students to administrations, often seeking to suppress speech the students deem offensive and to increase faculty and student affirmative action policies and programs.

It’s not surprising that the Demand movement has come to my alma mater, Hamilton College, in upstate New York.

There was some real angry ugliness at Brown University Tuesday night, as NYC Police Commissioner Ray Kelly was shouted down and his lecture shut down.

On the surface, college dialogue seems to be all about  ’open-mindedness’ and ‘tolerance.’

To create this impression of a tolerant environment, many universities have “speech codes” that penalize politically incorrect speech, sometimes with severe consequences.

For instance,  Florida Atlantic University insists in vague terms that “every...
