    New London — Everything came to a halt on the Connecticut College campus Wednesday afternoon as President Katherine Bergeron canceled all other events and called for a campus-wide forum to address a tenured professor’s Facebook post comparing Gazan Palestinians to “a rabid pit bull chained in a cage, regularly making mass efforts to escape.” "Gaza is in the cage because of its repeated efforts to destroy Israel and Jews," Andrew Pessin, a professor in the college's philosophy department, published to his personal Facebook page in August. Editor's note: This corrects an earlier version of the first sentence. "The blockade is...
  • Communism and human nature (Bolshie Mod sez, Arise ye kittens of the earth!)

    Many argue that communism will never be possible because of "human nature". The essence of this false argument is the belief that a communist society would consist of an all-powerful central government that would tell everybody what to do--and would therefore undermine the creative initiative of individuals and the search for happiness. • This argument is based on two false assumptions: (1) It assumes that a communist society will look like the former Soviet Union, or the current China, North Korea, etc (ie: corrupt police states with a feudal-style ruling class) (2) It assumes that people will only work in...

    At its 20th anniversary dinner, Accuracy in Academia will make its first annual presentation of its Little Churchill awards, named after Ward not Winston, for dubious academic achievement. Just as the colorful Ethnic Studies professor has distinguished himself for calling the victims of the World Trade Center attacks of 9-11-01 Little Eichmanns, thus comparing them to the notorious Nazi from the Second World War, so too have a host of academics distinguished themselves by their ethnic sensitivity in an age of "tolerance." But Ward Churchill's achievements do not end there. He has also produced scholarship that either already appeared elsewhere...
