Academia has become a training camp for petty tyrants. Universities were supposed to be arenas where the exchange of ideas, some of them taboo, could be pursued without compromise or threat of suppression. We’ve come a long way……down, baby. The majority of college faculty now either eagerly and gleefully relish the thought of silencing dissenting thinkers, or weakly acquiesce to those holding the heretic-whip. And yet these same dictatorial academics have the gall to project their witch-burning psychoses on Trump and his supporters and brand them the real authoritarians.
PS Interestingly (from an HBD-vantage), a survey of schoolchildren in 1971 found eerily similar percentages of support among them for free speech.
The origins of children’s attitudes toward freedom of dissent were investigated using questionnaire data from 1384 children in grades 5 through 9. Political socialization of attitudes toward free speech apparently does occur during late childhood and early adolescence. Most children acquire support for the abstract principle of free speech in slogan form, without learning its concrete implications. Support for free speech in concrete instances is dictated largely by the child’s attitude toward the dissenting out-group in question and only rarely by the general principle of free expression. There are indications that the child’s confidence in his ability to think divergently contributes to tolerance, presumably by reducing the personal threat posed by deviant out-groups.
More proof that shitlibs (who have almost completely overrun academia) are arrested adolescents, (and that Boomers
are were the worst fucking generation ever, in any universe).
