AS is said, one can be so open-minded that ones brains are in danger of falling out. Really. Mind you, to begin with – under the best of circumstances – some folks do not possess that many marbles to spare. Sheesh.
IN fact, once upon a time, a liberal arts education was designed to enable students to develop core critical thinking skills, in order to aid with their newly emerging adulthood and responsibilities. Tragically, higher education took a decided leftward turn (in the 1960’s) into some very dark, dangerous and hellish places and it never recovered its educational footing, nor its moral foundation.
THE reasons for this are manifest, but suffice to say that the upending of America, its transforming, started in the 1960’s and many of yesteryear’s radicals (domestic terrorists) are ensconced in the highest recesses of academia. Not only that, they are part and parcel of Obama Inc. and this is no exaggeration. Said claim is fully verified at the following book review:
BRINGING DOWN AMERICA is a gripping tale of plots and subplots, each one aimed at “the violent overthrow of the bourgeoisie [and] the establishment of the dictatorship of the proletariat”, as Bill Ayers, Bernadine Dohrn, and Jeff Jones exhorted in their 1974 manifesto, “Prairie Fire: The Politics of Revolutionary Anti-Imperialism.”…..continue reading here…
BUT why does any of this matter? Well, if not for some of the proofs cited within, the fact is that ISIS (and its ISLAMIC terror offshoots) would hardly receive a welcome mat on America’s campuses. No kidding around. But we will get to that in a bit, just hang on.
SO, as more than an academic exercise into the darkest recesses of American/western academia, the requisite warning bells should include:
WARNING BELL ONE:
MOST glaringly, the paradoxes and pitfalls of liberal democracies are such that (im)moral relativism has the west in its deadly vise-grip.
THUS, there is absolutely no demarcation between good vs evil, right vs wrong, up vs down…and on and on. A topsy-turvy (mental) universe cannot fight against that which threatens western civilization. Simple as that.
WARNING BELL TWO:
UNDER the circumstances, is it hyperbole to suggest that U.S. academia is, at the very least, partly responsible for placing a nail in the west’s coffin?
WARNING BELL THREE:
INDEED, the scourge of ISLAMIC barbarism receives its oxygen and fuel by the radicals within American and western (Israel’s too) academia. No doubt.
AS promised, some matters require visual aids as adjunct therapy, and even then they are hard to swallow. Unfathomable. But never mind, it is what it is. Guaranteed, Cornell’s cesspool is hardly a one-off anomaly within America’s campuses. If only.
DEAR readers, before you click on, please make sure to remove any heavy objects nearby, you may just get the urge to swing at the computer screen afterwards, not that that would make a dent, other than in your computer screen! As another suggestion, you may want to have a barf bag nearby. Just sayin’…
