Let’s Help Academia Destroy Itself

It would be nice to see all the colleges re-organize themselves to meet the needs of society and the students, but given their breathtaking success in being expensive brainwashing and zombie-making institutions, if social and economic pressures come to bear on them, they will simply downsize and continue to try to carry on their usual functions. I think a conscious and direct campaign to end their dysfunctional mission would really be needed to cut out the bull.

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...
