Fail Your Way to Success Week in Higher Education

Fail Your Way to Success Week in Higher Education

Your weekly report on campus news.

Is there anyone who has been more successful at failing upwards than Hunter Biden?

He gets protection from every direction.

Meanwhile, the Classics are now under fire for some reason.

Compare and contrast.

Of course she is.

No one believes this anymore. There have been too many hoaxes.

The left is creating a climate of fear.

This is happening all over the country.

Diversity is the unofficial religion of higher education.

So true.

Needs more letters.


Well OK, then.

My question is, “How do you right-size the amount and kinds of pushback to institutionalized insanity?” Right now, it seems the first step beyond complaining is to withhold money. But what if that does not work (for whatever reason)? Then, what’s next? That question leads me down a rather dark path. I hope I’m being pessimistic. Can anyone cheer me up?

    I am afraid I cannot cheer you up at this point.

    Alumni can withhold money, sure, and that might be painful for a while. But that will matter less and less as the money comes from elsewhere–mostly from overseas..

    In one institution of which I am aware, master’s programs have expanded while new ones have also sprouted up. All of these programs are the cash cows of certain schools within the institution.

    Thousands of applications come in from students who are willing and able to pay cash for at least two years of graduate classes. And admissions instructions require that at least fifty percent of the applicants are accepted in order to guarantee a certain yield (which means that mediocre applicants are pulled into the matriculating mix.)

    It’s a mill.

    Who needs piddly donations?

    Here’s something to cheer about: leaving this dump of a nation that ours has become and creating a new land, leaving the left behind.

    Secession should be on everyone’s mind, lest you lose your mind – and your freedom.

The inmates are running the asylum. Literally.
