A Searing Indictment of the Modern College Experience

11 Mar

See Chillingworth’s original post for the section he quoted; I didn’t actually read the original RS link.

Enjoyment and Contemplation

I think this is pretty good writing.  The larger piece is about fraternities, but here’s college in one paragraph:

    After the Rolling Stone rape scandal on campus turned out to be crap, now they have found another horrible indictment of white men! Shock! some boys at a college fraternity used a racial slur, and of course the left has launched its bigot-seeking missiles to destroy their lives.

    Modern College is a testing lab for the progressive nightmares.

    “Modern College is a testing lab for the progressive nightmares”

    Yeah. And grad/doctorates are Finishing School for the prog-hogs. College has been pushed relentlessly by the govt/media/advertising/corporate conglom, and no wonder. Since the Eighties most campuses transformed into indoctrination centers for feminism, political correctness, and libertine paganism. All under cover of Having Fun and Getting An Education.

    Heck you don’t even have to herd and coerce like Stalin and Mao. They come seeking their psycho-spiritual Soma . . . indeed eager to pay for a four (or six! or eight!) year brainscrub.

    Perhaps ten percent of modern college students should be enrolled. Likely more around five percent. The rest are just fooling themselves, fooling their weak parents, and draining resources.

    Cheers.

    BTW, I must confess I didn’t read the original RS piece Chillingworth linked; I reposted this for the section he quoted, which you can go see at his post.

    Ray’s analysis is spot on. The universities/colleges of today are nothing but propaganda mills where anyone traditional is weeded out for ‘elite’ society.

    Ray said: “Perhaps ten percent of modern college students should be enrolled. Likely more around five percent. The rest are just fooling themselves, fooling their weak parents, and draining resources.”

    Couldn’t agree more. You could close down a good 80% of these places and still have more than necessary. A lot of it is only what people used to get in secondary school, but they can’t do that anymore because there’s too much money in hoarding knowledge and doling it out piecemeal – that’s if they even did that much anymore.

    We’ll be advising our children that the only reason to go at all is if you absolutely need the piece of paper for a job. It’s unlikely anyone needs a philosophy degree to get a job, unless it’s a self-perpetuating non-job like…college professor!

    That’s basically true. Most universities are an unofficial welfare program for academics who wouldn’t be useful for much else.

    The sciences and engineering are about the only worthwhile things left in Academia.

    Agreed, Lena and Eric.
