‘Why Does Academe Tilt So Far to the Left?’ (2005)

Just another day in the lecture hall

I wonder how much has changed in our colleges since I wrote this article for Chalcedon in 2005. I’m sure some of you can tell me. That’ll be interesting.


I miss my brother-in-law, Dr. Miller, and my friend, Professor McGregor, more than I can say, and I often wonder what they would say about some of the most recent developments on the looniversity landscape.

They weren’t around long enough to be told they had to give their students extra credit for “social justice” activities. They didn’t believe the students were entirely sold on all this Far Left poobah, but were interested mostly in just getting through college with a minimum of turmoil. I wonder about that, too.

    I’d say it’s the same reason why leftists flock to big cities and not to rural areas, because they don’t have to work as hard. And that is especially true of professors on universities. In fact, I’m pretty sure it’s the only job most of them could get. That and they like to work in places where they can exert influence.

    Humanists always tilt to the Left because they follow the lead of their sin nature which has a true north to degradation. They promise heaven but deliver hell.
