Jason Hill, DePaul professor, slams liberal colleges as ‘gravest internal threat to this country’ Professor calls universities the ‘gravest internal threat’ to U.S. Quote: "Jason Hill, who teaches at Chicago’s private DePaul University, blasted universities in a hard-hitting op-ed earlier this month as “propaganda machines” that indoctrinate students to reject Western culture. “The core principles and foundations that keep the United States intact, that provide our citizens with their civic personalities and national identities, are being annihilated,” wrote Hill. “The gravest internal threat to this country is not illegal aliens; it is leftist professors who are waging a war against America and teaching our young people to hate this country.”" And quote: "Moreover, “today’s scholars in humanities and social sciences increasingly declare that modern argumentation is a white, Western form of domination and linguistic imperialism that silences racial and ethnic minorities and devalues their ‘lived experiences,’” Hill said. “One cannot argue with such people. The only alternative is to shut them down.” That means universities as currently constituted have got to go, argued Hill, who has written on civil disobedience and identity politics, social and political philosophy, cosmopolitanism and race theory." ______________________________________________________________________________________ While I do not agree universities must be shut down, some kind of philosophical counterweight must exist. One that provides humanities and social science majors--particularly future doctoral candidates headed for professorships--a balanced mix at least of ideological philosophies and political psychology, in particular, while depoliticizing core history courses. Doctoral candidate exams also need to be reconsidered for less bias towards the "godless" schools of thought. While not yet as militant radical Left as say,the Sorbonne of the 70's, the anti-Western, anti-American indoctrination culture in many humanities and social science departments has surpassed the point of too far--perhaps the point of no return--for this generation at least. Essentially, the political correctness needs to go. Freedom to interpret and share ideas seems nearly lost to modern enclaves of radical liberalism. What do you think?
