Anyone who has experienced secondary education in America has been at the mercy of the political/social views of their professors. I never minded people disagreeing with me or my views, what continues to irk me is those folks who don't want to discuss viewpoint but want only a total conversion to their point of view. A very liberal, but fair, professor of my once noted that people who zealously hold the belief that they know "THE TRUTH" are incapable of compromise or peace because they have "THE TRUTH" and if you don't agree then you are automatically ignorant, delusional, or intentionally evil. Facts, proofs, alternative opinions and beliefs don't matter because they own "THE TRUTH". This applies to left, right & everywhere in between.
