Mind control on campus: Santorum and brownback style

Published 14 years ago -  - 14y ago 20


Thank goodness I never went to college. Four years of high school was enough. It was all the education I needed to get a good job, shift into creative writing and music careers, move up on the monetary ladder, raise a responsible family, and be able to evaluate with a fair amount of intelligence and objectivity historical events and current misadventures.

College might well have killed my chances for that kind of life.. Why? Because of the stunted, liberal, jaded, indoctrinal-not-educational curricula prevalent on most university campuses today.

My viewpoint, admittedly, is biased. By that I mean, it’s entirely possible that colleges in my younger days were not yet contaminated by a curricula of globalization, diversity-at-all-costs, political correctness, multiculturalism, lemming-like conformity, and other “mandatory” socialistic concepts.

But all of that thought-control started somewhere, at some time, and I was just lucky enough to have missed it, for which I will be eternally grateful. In other words, the education I got, sans college, was more in line with what an education is supposed to do. .An article in National Alliance clearly points that out. It tells us that a proper education serves three purposes:

First, it passes along cultural, intellectual and spiritual heritage from generation to generation by teaching facts, ideas, language, history, science, ethics, etc;

Second, it teaches young people how to do and develop things which will free-up their talents and reveal aptitudes necessary for a happy successful life.

Third, it teaches how to develop and strengthen character traits, handle disappointments, accept responsibility, overcome fears, and become a valuable and contributing member of society.

How much of that essential education are students in colleges getting today? Or for that matter, even students in grade schools? Whatever happened to reasonable debate? What became of honest dissent? Why do unpopular viewpoints get buried? When, where, how, and why did academic freedom go into hiding?

Maybe the answer to that last question is the answer to all those questions.. Academic freedom isn’t hiding, it is being replaced by “thought-control” legislation , with the added “incentive” of “blackmail” designed to prohibit any criticism of anything or anyone, at any time.

Michael Collins Piper, of the American Free Press, gives us all the bad news. Piper reports that the new educational barricade, soon to be erected, is the hair-brained-child of Senator Rick Santorum (Pa.) who wants to re-write Title IX of the Higher Education Act to include “ideological diversity” as a prerequisite for federal funding—THERE’S the blackmail.

The latest example of this travesty visiting American college campuses is ANY CRITICISM OF ISRAEL.

That’s right, you lucky students, any criticism of Israel is part of the educational barricade that Santorum is about to put up. He and fellow mind-closer Senator Sam Brownback (Kan.) are about to call for a federal commission (some call it a tribunal) to “investigate” anti-Semitic incidents on American campuses.

Being a hidden agenda kind of thing, the average college student or college professor hasn’t yet heard of the Santorum-Brownback scheme. But they will soon enough, because, according to Piper’s report, “Santorum, along with other members of the U.S. Senate invited representatives of a number of powerful Jewish organizations to a private meeting on Capitol Hill to discuss the senators’ concerns about growing criticism of Israel on American college campuses.”

And, as you might suspect, even the mildest kind of criticism is sure to be found unacceptable to Anti-Defamation League (ADL) a key representative of Jewish organizations.

However, as word of the Santorum-Brownback thought-control mechanism gets out, and word spreads among leaders of the educational community, don’t expect them to respond with more than limp wrists. The professors are well aware that if they speak out they will be accused of encouraging “anti-Semitism”, and we all know what happens to people in college (or anywhere for that matter)who say what’s on their minds.

Considering restrictive things like this, running rampant on college campuses these days—making students less and less free to think for themselves—a new educational curriculum ought to go into effect immediately—ways to fumigate a system.

And while you’re at it—how to clean a House.
