In Snorri Sturlusson’s history of King Harald I of Norway, written in the Middle Ages, he reports that Harald married a queen who had a reputation for practicing witchcraft. When she died, Harald was so distraught that he forbade anyone to move her body. Amazingly, the corpse, just left on the bed for month after month, did not decay. But finally, when they had to do something about the bedding, they turned her over–and she burst wide open, and a multitude of hideous little monsters swarmed out of her body, which instantly decayed.
Hmm… Was Snorri actually writing about America’s college and university system in 2017?
I visited The College Fix today (http://www.thecollegefix.com/), and it was so full of revolting news reports, I didn’t know where to begin. Catholic college, Georgetown, punishes students for promoting Catholic teachings on marriage. Smith College Queer Studies program–yes, you can get a degree in that, and don’t even ask what it costs–seeks to “disrupt normative sex,” only aberrant sex allowed. Another college teaches that “white people slaughtered and maimed their way to the top” and need to be brought down, I guess so other groups can have their turn to slaughter and maim people. And on and on and on, one after another. I just can’t zero in on any one of them. I couldn’t even get up the nerve to count them.
What are our colleges doing to us? If all these millions of students actually come to believe the drivel they’ve been taught, so ripe with hate, fury, and the potential for violence, what kind of hell-hole will America be turned into, in their hands? Think about it: someone’s got to.
Shut them down. Cut off the money and shut them down. Find some other means of higher education. And maybe someday we can build new colleges where decency and sanity prevail.
But first put a stop what what all these schools are doing.
