LETTER

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, http://aynrand.org, 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.
