We have seen the future, and it sucks.

A Return to the Academy

12th April 2017

Daniel Pipes discovers that You Can’t Go Home Again.

I grew up around a university (my father Richard is a professor emeritus) and went on to earn a Ph.D. in medieval history, so I initially expected the campus ever to be central in my life. Then, because it radicalized and I did not, my connection to the academy withered. Now, on occasional returns visits to it, I invariably feel alienated by the left-wingery, the jargon, and the arrogant irrelevance. While glad I escaped its clutches, I worry about the future of American (that word again) higher education. So, yes, Campus Watch has it right.

    Curious how people who worry about the future of America always do so with regard to how things were when they themselves were kids.
    Yet somehow the Future Generation in question always manages to survive long enough to worry about the following generation…

    Which only goes to show that ‘progress’ is mostly in a downward direction — which is what one would expect with ‘progressives’ in charge.
