Let’s Help Academia Destroy Itself

It depends on what you consider ignorance. Graduates today are ignorant of true history, moral values, ethics, American idealism and any form of common sense. But, they do know sex ed, faulty science, the force of peer pressure to stamp out ideas other than liberal speak. A true individual personality can surmount all this; but, there are fewer and fewer.

Conservatives should welcome the decline of academia as we know it. I, for one, will celebrate its death by engaging in the same activity that characterized my four years at what some call its pinnacle– drinking a lot of Coors Light.

There is still nostalgia among conservatives, especially older ones who have forgotten what college is really like, for the idea of higher education as a rigorous venue for intellectual growth, an environment of exciting and vibrant ideas shared by wise, caring educators dedicated to the pursuit of truth.

Today, it is nothing of the sort.

For the vast majority...
