The Ghost of Snapped Shot

Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.

Radical Totalitarianism

I hope all of you parents out there keep crap like this in mind when you start shopping around for a University for the li'l tyke:

This “Residence Life,” so-called “citizenship” program would have remained under wraps except for whistle-blowing by indignant students and their parents, as well as groundbreaking efforts by the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE) and the National Association of Scholars (NAS) to investigate and expose the character of what the university, in its own Orwellian materials, called “the treatment.”

The program’s stated intent was for the approximately 7,000 students in U.D.’s residence halls to espouse, in FIRE’s words, “highly specific university-approved views on politics, race, sexuality, sociology, moral philosophy, and environmentalism.”

Free thinking in education has apparently gone the way of the dodo.

Hopefully, if this type of Stalinism keeps up, so will our Universities, bad rubbish and all.
