Yesterdays story on the Cry Wolf project has exposed a dangerous pretense that has been prevalent, yet well disguised, for some time in our institutions of higher learning. Its an important post. A small committee of professors and academic professionals, normally held in high regard, have blatantly betrayed the trust of the public and quite possibly smeared the reputations of all colleges and universities nationwide. By soliciting paid activists to create research papers that are intentionally designed to silence opposing viewpoints, they have undermined the political system and manipulated the governmental policy making process. And in the meantime, theyve also implicated all of academia in the manufacturing of their propaganda.
It is an abuse of their power, and an abuse of the institutions they represent. It is appalling and repellent. Perhaps even against their employers rules or the industrys ethical code. Consider it an ominous warning this will have a dire impact on our political and economic system in the future, if we remain apathetic in the face of such a rhetorical and intellectual assault.

Refuting progressive ideologues requires common sense, the kind that emerges from a daily struggle with the reality of building a family, a business, and a community. Success comes through a continuing struggle to overcome corruption in business and government.
Corruption in business is not common but when it comes it is dire. Like a bolt from the blue a letter from an attorney threatening credit or suit for a fraudulent bill requires untold hours and dollars to rectify. The toll in emotional wear and tear brings many to their knees.
Government corruption is worse. It comes through the barrel of a gun with the threat of severe punitive financial damages or imprisonment.
In each instance we rely on the guaranteed principle of justice to overcome these threats to our well being. When progressive laws control the judicial system all hope for justice is gone. We are left with the dominance of special interests such as attorneys and other favored constituencies.
Our very lives are at stake in this current struggle. If we fail the principles of freedom, dignity, honesty, justice and our essential commitment to goodness will be erased. We will enter a dark age of misery, hatred and violence like so many faced in the totalitarian regimes of the 20th century.
We must, if we are to survive, take our country back from the demonic forces that seek to dominate us.
