a gut punch of an article! I think that the progressive complex is seeing the hand writing on the wall and is now working harder to push their brainwashing techniques and leftist ideas into our high schools and even elementary schools. They start with indoctrinating little ones into environmentalist whacko religion and by high school they are teaching moral equivalency and the the USA is a world wide bully and oppressor.

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...
