“One thing stands in the way of the onward march of this malevolent force: the public’s common sense.”
If this isn’t stopped now, it won’t be stopped at all. We won’t get another chance.
John Ellis writes at the Wall Street Journal:
Can Politics Get Better When Higher Education Keeps Getting Worse?
Only a few years ago, several well-established features of the current political landscape were too absurd to be taken seriously. Defunding the police was a ridiculous idea; critical race theory would be a giant step backward in race relations; leftist radicalism was a fringe element of the Democratic Party. Suddenly all have gone mainstream…
Where are we headed now? On campus, radicalism grows stronger each day. The current left-right campus faculty ratio is probably about 15 to 1, but new appointments are being made at a rate of about 50 to 1. As we approach complete leftist saturation among professors, college campuses will become even more intolerant, irrational and politically aggressive.
More important still, academia’s influence on society will intensify as the number of people who have graduated from radicalized campuses increases and the number of those who graduated with a conventional college education declines. A generation—students from about 2000 to now—has graduated from one-party campuses. Where will we be when two generations have done so and another generation has died off?
One thing stands in the way of the onward march of this malevolent force: the public’s common sense. Parents have mounted spirited campaigns against teaching critical race theory in schools, but will this pushback weaken as the number of politically indoctrinated college graduates rises?
We shouldn’t wait to find out. We must stop the political radicals who have a stranglehold on U.S. campuses. Why isn’t that happening already?
