Professor Emeritus Jim Wilson was quoted in a blog published in The Wall Street Journal entitled “What Law Professors Would Say to Students About Trump’s Win.” The blog is available here. Professor Wilson’s quote, which was also reprinted in Crain’s Cleveland Business, available here, is reproduced directly below:
Our community is very fractured right now. The ruling class seems to have gone overboard when utilizing its fundamental tool of “divide and conquer,” and many members of both factions are filled with self-righteous fury. Somehow, people of good will from both sides (and there are people of good will on both sides) must overcome these understandable emotions to band together to create a more decent society that addresses the serious problems our species face throughout the world. This election may create the space for new coalitions to form. There is always a place for friendship and reciprocity.
