Huh? Those are my opinions, but that's not the point I was trying to make, which is; if some institution favors one side over the other than we're going to bitch about it rather than compromise and resolve it.

A good many educators take seriously the idea that teaching is a political activity and accordingly feel justified in using their classrooms as platforms for spreading their social, economic, and philosophical beliefs. They want to act as “change agents” who will improve the world.

Most of those educators have been imbued with a leftist cast of mind – hostile to capitalism, private property, and anything that stands in the way of their utopian visions of a just society brought about through government power. Instances like the recent ones at UC Santa Barbara (where a professor physically attacked a student who was peacefully protesting abortion) and Eastern Connecticut (where a writing professor went off on a rant about how evil Republicans are) are pretty common.


Of course, there are non-leftist educators, but most of them are content just to teach their subjects rather than trying to turn students into ideological clones of themselves. I don’t think that education should be hijacked for political objectives of any sort.

Anecdotes about leftist politicization on our college campuses abound, but if you want a meticulous study documenting that, you could read “A Crisis of Competence: The Corrupting Effect of Political Activism in the University of California.” The paper leaves no doubt that inappropriate leftist politics have saturated most of the UC campuses
