The rot is well-established in even our so-called ‘elite’ institutions - talk to any recent graduate/student at Cal Tech, MIT, Carnegie Mellon, etc. and listen to their sincere belief in and babble about ‘Sreen’ energy, etc. you get Sesame Street logic wrapped in big words. When an MIT graduate level degreed ME claims the internal combustion engine was one of man’s (this was several years ago) most damaging inventions - you are NOT talking to anyone who understands engineering.

Yes, and this is frighting. I believe what you say and from my understanding MIT doesn't even have a humanities department to speak of. I guess it's too close to Harvard.
I work in Silicon Valley in technology and I've seen the same nonsense from recent college graduates. And the more prestigious the university, the worse it seems to be (read Cal and Stanford). We are on very rocky ground when those who are supposed to be our future leaders have become indoctrinated so easily. It's a consequence of the nonsense that has been pounded into their heads in grammar school, high school, and at the university level. Raw intelligence seems to be no defense against this propaganda.
