After the Berkeley Milo boycott I've had enough. Arguing with liberals on Facebook takes too much time. So I made a video instead.
Papa KalashnikookOutstanding. And scary as hell!
My thoughts exactly.
If the choice is between voting for totalitarian utopian fascists and admitting your degree and subsequent career are utterly useless, many people will sadly choose the former.
Victory is withing grasp comrades!
"Bezmenov stated that he was also instructed not to waste time with idealistic leftists, as these would become disillusioned, bitter, and adversarial when they realized the true nature of Soviet Communism. To his surprise, he discovered that many such were listed for execution once the Soviets achieved control. Instead, Bezmenov was encouraged to recruit the persons in large circulation, established conservative media, rich filmmakers, intellectuals in academic circles, and cynical, ego-centric people who lacked moral principles."
Must have been a pretty clever guy to predict the current state of academia back then...
There's a restoration weekend speech (sadly can't find it anymore) in which a conservative declares that academia is too far gone to ever be "normalised", and that new forms of higher education should be developed outside of the legacy institutions.
I firmly believe that in these digital times this can be achieved. A motivated college student can easily obtain extensive knowledge with a good textbook, 8 hours max of lectures/lab work a week, some digital training systems, a few papers with feedback and a fair exam. Why this should cost tens of thousands of dollars... I do not understand.
Subsidizing degrees that lead to zero job options with tax money ... absurd.
Absurdly, here in continental Europe, campuses are less "politically divided" as compared to the US. I can't really say why.
