Venezuela’s President Hugo Chavez has created a university to educate millions of pliant state worker bees cut out of the same ideological cloth.
“Unfortunately, the government is using education as a political tool,” commented opposition leader Julio Borges. “The Bolivarian University is just another vehicle, a bridge, to politicize the population.”
Sound familiar? This nation’s campuses are of course filled with entire programs openly propagating similarly collectivist social activism. So thank you, American academe, for setting such an example for developing nations such as Venezuela.
