Western academia is broken.
If you’ve been following us, then you probably agree that the American, and indeed the Western system of higher education has been broken for quite some time. Rogue feminist Camille Paglia has spoken at great length about the false and deceptive path that colleges have gone down since the 1960s. She explains that, breaking from the largely honest and truly rebellious spirit of freedom which won the day in the 60s more or less drugged itself out of existence. Her peers slowly ruined their minds by abusing LSD, and all of the meaningful intellectuals washed out. This, she says created the power vacuum that a kind of corporate class of academics needed to move in and take administrative positions in colleges.
What we have today on American college campuses is a culture where weakness prevails, where the students fear political violence from their peers, and the teachers fear litigation from their students. Any idea, however canonical, however rooted in science, research, and literature is verboten. Paglia describes the way colleges hastily created women’s studies programs, by recruiting English professors to fill ad hoc positions as women’s studies teachers.
These misplaced English teachers, having no knowledge of biology and a warped obsession with equanimity, teach and believe that there is no such thing as a biological basis for gender- and that gender differences are entirely the arbitrary creation of a society that is bent on enforcing oppressive norms.
A recent survey reveals that 77% of college educated Democrats believe there is no biological basis for sex and gender. Rush Limbaugh has more on this astonishing study.
