I wish we had been wrong

I wish we had been wrong

We didn’t just warn about the pernicious and corrosive effects of CRT and DEI that now are exploding on campuses. We documented the threat more deeply than anyone else. With facts and data.

We have been warning for years about the pernicious and corrosive impact of the racialization of education under the umbrellas of Critical Race Theory and Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.

We told our readers and anyone who would listen that these ideologies set students against each other, against their parents, against their own country, and against Israel and Jews.

On October 7, and 8, and 9, and beyond, the putrid hate generated by these ideologies spewed forth on campuses, shocking the nation. Our readers were not shocked.

I wish we had been wrong. But we were right.

We didn’t just warn. We documented more deeply than anyone else. With facts and data. It’s what Legal Insurrection blog (which just had its 15th Anniversary) and our Legal Insurrection Foundation (approaching its 5th Anniversary) do better than anyone.

It’s been almost three years since we launched, a project of the Legal Insurrection Foundation, with interactive maps now covering over 700 schools, from higher ed, to elite K-12, to medical schools, to veterinary schools, to business schools, to the military service academies. It’s all documented, with source links and archived links for every single piece of data.

We knew. Our readers knew. Now the nation knows, and there are increasing calls to dismantle and eliminate the DEI industrial complex.

Over 600,000 unique users have performed over 8 million actions on the website. Over 150 media articles and broadcasts have covered our databases. This past year alone, we have:

  • Added the business and veterinary school databases
  • 55 new medical schools have been added (database now includes all 155 accredited med schools)
  • Added more schools to our elite private school database

As we look forward to a new year, we have many plans for continuing to track the acronyms wreaking havoc on our education system and culture (CRT, DEI, ESG, and SEL), expanding our education efforts, bringing greater awareness to these ideologies that are ripping the fabric of our society to bits.

YOU have been a big part of this effort. We have put your dollars to work and will continue to do so.

We take no pleasure in having been right. But we need to keep pushing, not to let up, to let facts and data and sunlight disinfect the educational poison that is corrupting our youth. We will not let up, but we need your help.

Please DONATE to support this crucial project with a year-end donation. Every single dollar counts. Recurring monthly donations are particularly helpful.

Wishing you a wonderful holiday season and a blessed new year ahead,

More evidence that our universities have become cancerous, almost literallly. They have lost the ability to self-correct, and genuinely bad ideas reproduce and expand without limit rather than being discarded.

Go abroad for college.

The Long March Through the Institutions.

There needs to be alternatives to college for people, maybe in part online and in part working groups collaborating to study specific subjects. They are no longer acceptable places to send our children.

    Elon Musk is supposed to be setting up a real STEM college in Texas.

    He saved Twitter and the space program, why not colleges as well?

I wish there were an equivalent for employees in woke corporations.

It’s Jim Crow all over again with the colors reversed in corporate America.

For many- it’s driven in part by contracting requirements, but that’s only one head of this beast.

However you teach people to not think, when you teach them to not think, you’ve armed them to not think thereafter.

V interesting piece on under-developed moral reasoning here (via Instapundit):

Refers to research that describes a developmental model in “moral reasoning”, paralleling Piaget’s model of developing cognition. DIE conveniently opeationalizes pre-adolescent “moral reasoning”.

It’s middle-school cafeteria cliques all the way down.
