Becker responded:

Stunned. I'm not worthy! I'm not worthy! (Think Wayne's World) … Academic freedom is like muscles in that if we don't use it, it begins to decay … Horowitz wants to intimidate people like me who oppose imperialism and neoliberal economic policies into being quiet. If we are quiet, then we have lost our academic freedom. (Marc Becker Homepage).
