I do think ideological speech codes are bad ideas, but they are in no way illegal
authoritarian is an issue if it's the government that can throw you in jail or take your life. private businesses can't do much except ban you, and as a private institution they can do that without cause if they want to.
don't you think the government should not be allowed to interfere with private decisions?
But those speech codes punish students for sharing a point of view that school disagrees with. Is that not authoritarian.
You do realize the bill of rights only protects you from the government? private institutions can kick you out if they choose to, even without a reason.
it's no different than a code of conduct at a business. it is a professional environment, certain language is not acceptable.
