When Victor Davis Hanson is asking questions like this, people should pay attention.

Higher education has devolved into something else.

The current system is unsustainable.

The left’s obsession with race is not helping anyone.

This ideology is no longer confined to college campuses.

Such a disgrace.

It’s almost like this has become trendy.

Oh my…

The left does not want to debate. They want you to shut up.

Joe Biden was unavailable for comment.

This is how you win.

I really won’t believe this until heavily made up television bimbos wearing oversized horn rimmed glasses explain it to me breathlessly in nasally high rising terminal voices. Like, you know?

Well let the whole thing collapse in its own effluvium. Rebuild from the beginnings around nine hundred years ago. “Dominus Illuminatio Mea”.

Universities are not doomed until you overturn Griggs vs. Duke Power.

Medical Dr aside.

Also outside of law school (which has questionable value these days) there are very few fields where the grip has not been broken.

Any information you want is EVERYWHERE now for free. The only barrier is your will and desire to go and get it. The only blocker to transforming that into a living is equally internal.

The return on investment for the 4 year degree is at an all time low. The dam is broken on even the engineering fields.

The value for going for sports is also diminishing- especially for women now that they have to compete against the creepiest of life forms with a penis life for scholarships.

If my kid goes, it will be via head start and then with a mandate to bang that degree out in the shortest of time and then get the hell away from it.

Not necessarily good news if thousands of unemployed assistant professors turned loose to infect Civil Society with Wokeism. . Article this week by Russell Jacoby in evolutionisreal.com and noted today on Twitter.

I think of “The Universities” as corrput (and intentionally corrupted) instantiations of an uncorruptable ideal, much like C. S. Lewis’ take on “the church.” Personally follow the call of the one, while dealing with the realities of the other.

C. S Lewis’ take shows up in The Screwtape Letters, succinct, evocative, and compelling. That book is under-rated, both for the fun of it, and as an a;ccessable entry point into his take on things religious. Even the short stories or space trilogy don’t go as far toward illumination vs. esposition.

    Very nice comments re C.S. Lewis. He was every bit a masterful observer as G.K. Chesterton.

      So nice to see I’m not the only one who thinks of those two together.

      I also like Lewis’ Screwtape Lettes together with Orwell’s essays, esp Politics and The English Language.

LI regulars have seen this comment from me already: smart companies in engineering, research, even law, should, and likely will, form up apprentice programs do the fresh young minds will learn what needs to be learned. No horse manure courses in social justice.
