My godson is in middle of choosing what college to attend in two years. I do not envy his position. Modern colleges have become a cesspool of progressive nonsense. Instead of teaching students how navigate a world with differing ideas, colleges indoctrinate students into an ideology that teaches them the world is riddled with sexism, racism, and a host of other bigotries.
It teaches them that white men rule everything and have unfair, unearned privileges. It teaches them that minority groups and women are constantly held back and treated as inferior. It teaches then to view the world in a purely adversarial manner.
This is what my godson must choose from. It is no wonder he is having a hard time choosing. Considering his interests — music and animals — unless he goes to vet school he will deal with this madness.
The curious part about this situation is that most people never get to see the insanity in its raw form. Sargon of Akkad solves that problem in a recent video:
While I doubt many of the progressives set out to push a biased agenda, it certainly seems to be the result. This ironic racism and sexism actually works against the progressives’ goals. Rather than building alliances it separates people by casting one group as the perpetual villain and everyone else as the perpetual victims.
One group ends up defending itself constantly while the other feels under attack for existing. Both sides wind up viewing each other with suspicion and contempt and whatever real problems that exist never get solved.
The truly sad part is that this is not what college is supposed to be about. It is supposed to be about challenging ideas and learning, not political propaganda. I cannot blame my godson if he chooses not to go to college (but you are going).
