Let Debate Be Open

Concerning Jeff Duritz’s letter (“Offensive Content”, April 11): I was responsible for bringing Dr. Brook to speak.

The views of the Ayn Rand Institute are explicitly spelled out on its web site,, so the curious can judge for themselves.

As far as racism and “complexes,” I think it is Duritz and his associates who are obsessed with race, and Duritz’s behavior was among the rudest I have seen at MIT. Interestingly enough, I had a similar problem at an event two years ago, with some of the same people involved.

In any case, I look forward to continued debate on this campus.
