I had professors (in the mid-1970s) who were open Communists. Arguing with them was always a frustrating experience; they understood the power of rhetoric and ridicule; I did not. I had never heard of Saul Alinsky; they had memorized his Rules. And needless to say, one sacrificed the possibility of achieving high grades merely by virtue of one's willingness to disagree in class.
Our universities are now dominated by radicals, administratively and professorially. After 40 years they remain, closing American minds, one at a time.
Now that so many Universities have become indoctrination centers, we can start challenging college graduation as THE default pathway to career success. One way to do this is by demanding alternate doors of entry to good jobs.I.Q. tests and life experiences used to be standard employer tools until the Left sued and said employers can’t give tests because tests were “unfair” to certain people.
Young adults should not have to feel that their lives are doomed without the holy grail of college indoctrination/graduation. They should not be told that they “need not apply” unless they have been through the brainwashing center.
