Indoctrination U

It seems the chickens have come home to roost on college campuses across the country. The president of the University of Missouri was forced to resign because his response to a handful of isolated instances of alleged racism was deemed insufficient. Protestors at Dartmouth College stormed the library, chanting "black lives matter," along with unprintable, racist rants at white students. The school's vice provost apologized to the protestors, telling them "the protest was a wonderful, beautiful thing." The University of California put out a list of "microaggressions" that students and faculty should avoid. Included are the following phrases: "There is only one race, the human race," "America is a melting pot," and "America is the land of opportunity." Columbia University's Multicultural Affairs Advisory Board recommended trigger warnings for students who might be traumatized by reading Ovid's "Metamorphoses." But a feminist blog warned that the term "trigger warning" itself might remind people of guns.

And so it goes.

Columnist Dennis Prager writes that "the universities are imploding by their own doing. They produce aggrieved and angry young Americans whose primary identity is that of victim." George Will describes all this as "the behavior-beyond-satire of what are generously called institutions of higher education. People who are imprecisely called educators have taught, by their negative examples, what intelligence is not."

Read Dennis Prager's column here, and George Will's here.
