The Right take on higher education.

Not Good Enough


Regarding the idea that many students have learned to give their leftwing professors what they want, without necessarily believing in their leftwing propaganda, while that may be a necessary tactic for survival in the contemporary university, let’s not take any comfort in it. That is the kind of argument that encouraged the complacency about the academic world that has allowed things to get as bad as they are today. Even if SOME students do see through the leftwing propaganda, and at best it would be only SOME, they are still not getting an education in the positive values of American and Western civilization that they should be getting. That still constitutes a victory for the Left and a defeat for our culture.
