Aware that wisdom comes from asking the right questions, not identifying the wrong answers, Professor Allan Bloom blasted American universities in 1987 for exacerbating youthful indiscretion. In his seminal book, The Closing of the American Mind: How Higher Education Has Failed Democracy and Impoverished the Souls of Today's Student, Bloom argued that students were graduating into a complex and conflict-riddled world without the insights that come from the clash of opposing viewpoints.

We cant solve problems, Einstein believed, by applying the same thinking we used when we created them."

OBama have commited more crimes than all the presidents in the last 50 years combined
Our nation is becoming a dystopian society full of extremely stupid people. If you don't believe it than how do some many shallow democrats get elected to high office. Why is Honey Boo Boo or the Kardashians so popular?
These Americans have now clues abut the scandals except when John Stewarts writers sober for 5 minutes to write a joke about one.
