Holy cow, I totally forgot to post my Newswithviews column this morning–completely slipped my mind. But here it is. Better late than never.

Dumber by the Day

I think we really must demand, and get, an answer to the question, “What good are we supposed to get out of all this pure crapola that’s boiling out of our schools, colleges, and universities?” How does this stuff benefit us in any way? What good is an education that makes you dumber?

We’re educating ourselves to death, and it has to stop.

Cut off the funding.

  1. If you can control the lexicon, yo can control the dialogue. That’s what this is all about. Frame everything in definitions which favor your cause and reject every other interpretation. It’s a dangerous precedent.

  2. Christian schools (good ones, that is) teach that our worst problem is our self. The public & private humanistic schools teach Rosseau & Marx’s version of “It’s the environment, stupid” – that we are all victims, and it is by perfecting social institutions life on earth can be an utopia. A line off-center will in time by way, way off – and that is where we find America today, way off course.
