Free Speech For Me, But Not For Thee

Monday, April 17, AD 2017

With respect to the advice given by the Author—to suspect the Man, who shall recommend moderate measures and longer forbearance—I spurn it—as every Man, who regards that liberty, & reveres that Justice for which we contend, undoubtedly must—for if Men are to be precluded from offering their sentiments on a matter, which may involve the most serious and alarming consequences, that can invite the consideration of Mankind; reason is of no use to us—the freedom of Speech may be taken away—and, dumb & silent we may be led, like sheep, to the Slaughter.

George Washington, March 15, 1783

 

 

 

The Red Fascists who run The Wellesley News at Wellesley College in Wellesley, Massachusetts, do not think much of freedom of speech.  Here is an editorial they wrote last week in which they attacked speech they disagree with:

 

Many members of our community, including students, alumnae and faculty, have criticized the Wellesley community for becoming an environment where free speech is not allowed or is a violated right. Many outside sources have painted us as a bunch of hot house flowers who cannot exist in the real world. However, we fundamentally disagree with that characterization, and we disagree with the idea that free speech is infringed upon at Wellesley. Rather, our Wellesley community will not stand for hate speech, and will call it out when possible.

Wellesley students are generally correct in their attempts to differentiate what is viable discourse from what is just hate speech. Wellesley is certainly not a place for racism, sexism, homophobia, Islamophobia, transphobia or any other type of discriminatory speech. Shutting down rhetoric that undermines the existence and rights of others is not a violation of free speech; it is hate speech. The founding fathers put free speech in the Constitution as a way to protect the disenfranchised and to protect individual citizens from the power of the government. The spirit of free speech is to protect the suppressed, not to protect a free-for-all where anything is acceptable, no matter how hateful and damaging.

  • To discriminate, to discern right from wrong, is not hate, but wisdom.

  • I have nothing postive to say about leftism. This is a good post.

  • Without a doubt, that’s fully in accord with the attitudes of the student affairs apparat at Wellesley as well as an important section of the faculty. None of the rest of the faculty or the administration are willing to do much about it due to status considerations. The trustees could repair this problem, but they do nothing because they are generally hollow men.

  • I don’t need to read the whole article to see just how lacking in logic and clear thinking its writers are. The poor writing reveals the lack of logic, just in the excerpt quoted. I will quote ONE sentence which proves their inability to think clearly:

    ‘Shutting down rhetoric that undermines the existence and rights of others is not a violation of free speech; it is hate speech’

    Anyone with any understanding of logic would see that the pronoun ‘it’ in the second clause refers, grammatically and logically to the subject of the first clause: ‘Shutting down speech.’ The only rational reading of that sentence is that ‘Shutting down rhetoric is hate speech.’

    Perhaps they are aware that their political stance is hate.

  • One cannot reason with lunatics.

  • “The spirit of free speech is to protect the suppressed, not to protect a free-for-all where anything is acceptable, no matter how hateful or damaging.”

    What a load of excrement.
    Ask Milo Yiannopoulus about free speech on campus’, Berkeley for instance. Outing undocumented immigrants who are students there? That was the chatter the brown shirts​ came up with to pardon the violence they created. The fact is the brown shirts won’t tolerate anyone who doesn’t think like them. Seems​ Wellesley is drinking the same kool-aid as Berkeley.

    Poor snowflakes.

  • That is a university? What a pile of excrement that place is.. and so is their thinking.

  • The notion of “Repressive tolerance” is not new. It goes back at least to Herbert Marcuse’s 1965 essay of that name and similar ideas were expressed by Felix Dzerzhinsky at the time of the Russian Revolution.

    Marcuse argues that tolerance which enlarges the range of freedom is an end in itself but it has always been partisan and intolerant toward the protagonists of the repressive status quo. For him, the issue is only the degree and extent of this intolerance.

    Hence, “Liberating tolerance, then, would mean intolerance against movements from the Right and toleration of movements from the Left. As to the scope of this tolerance and intolerance: … it would extend to the stage of action as well as of discussion and propaganda, of deed as well as of word.”

    Marcuse justifies this privileging and protection of radicalism on the Left on historical grounds: left leaning revolutionary movements are driven “from below’” by the masses in a fight against injustice while radical right movements are drive from above by the ruling classes and only result in further repression and control.

    This is what Alain Badiou, the Grand Old Man of the French Left means, with his ridicule of those who want a “decaffeinated revolution – 1789 without 1793” and his insistence that “if you say A – equality, human rights and freedoms – you should not shirk from its consequences and gather the courage to say B – the terror needed to really defend and assert the A.” Hence, his insistence that “”Materialist dialectics assumes, without particular joy, that, until now, no political subject was able to arrive at the eternity of the truth it was deploying without moments of terror. Since, as Saint-Just asked: “What do those who want neither Virtue nor Terror want?” His answer is well known: they want corruption -another name for the subject’s defeat.”

  • Without exaggeration, that editorial is – on its own definition – hate speech. So many times in so many places in so many ages, the Reign Of Terror follows the revolt.So often now saying “what you say offends me” is hate speech. Saying “you must provide me a safe space” is hate speech. Guy McClung San Antonio, Texas ps: No doubt in many of these totalitarian dystopias it would also be hate speech to say “Remember The Alamo!”

  • That last paragraph is a doozy.
    Right now we can’t define what constitutes “free” or what is “racism, sexism, homophobia, Islamophobia, transphobia or any other type of discriminatory speech”
    What about “shutting down rhetoric that undermines the existence and rights of others”?

    There can be no discourse, no rhetorical discussion, no persuasion about a viewpoint when the audience already knows it all. Knowing it all hampers education.

    Our assumptions or traditional ideas about how teaching and learning take place are usually didactic. Facts are facts-teacher is right, students are spoon fed
    . Not really the best way. It seems that our teacher education programs have not produced vibrancy and challenge in education. I hate to blame the students and call them snowflakes- they just don’t know what they don’t know. The system seems to make teachers want safety in their career more than they want excitement about learning and figuring things out.
    Jesus used rhetoric – parables, questions– to teach his followers and also to teach them to think.

This is beyond parody.  Harvard decided that it would be a grand idea to give students talking points for the holidays so that they could follow the politically correct line on various topics.

 

Harvard has advised students to lecture their non-Ivy-League relatives on liberal values in a bizarre set of holiday placemats to take home over Christmas.

The laminated cards raise some likely hot topics that lesser-educated family members may raise at the dinner table, then offers a suggested response. 

Covering such complex issues as police brutality, racial divisions, and the Syrian war, one of the sections tells students to say: ‘Racial justice includes welcoming Syrian refugees.’ 

 

One question to be braced for is: ‘Why are black students complaining? Shouldn’t they be happy to be in college?’

In response, the worldly scholars should ‘calmly’ explain: ‘When I hear students expressing their experiences on campus I don’t hear complaining.’

Students are also told what side to take on the issue of murdered black teenager Tamir Rice in 2014 – an issue which continues to divide the country. 

To make it through the spate of pesky questions, Harvard advised, students should ‘breathe’ and ‘listen mindfully’. 

After a furor was raised about it, Harvard made “a sorry we were caught” response:

Thomas Dingman, dean of freshmen, and Stephen Lassoed, dean of student life, said in a letter to students on Wednesday: ‘We write to acknowledge that the placemat distributed in some of your dining halls this week failed to account for the many viewpoints that exist on our campus on some of the most complex issues we confront as a community and society today.

‘Our goal was to provide a framework for you to engage in conversations with peers and family members as you return home for the winter break, however, it was not effectively presented and it ultimately caused confusion in our community.’

  • Yeah, I saw this yesterday.

    I graduated in 1995, a 25 year old veteran. As early as that PC was beginning to effect administration. I experienced this in the form of losing out on a Resident Assistant position. When I asked why I was “not qualified,” I was told that my age, military experience, and presodency of the pro-life organization suggested to the Resident Life Director that I would be too rigid to be able to deal with undergraduates. I asked if something was wrong with the interview and was told that the committee gave me universally high marks but that the Director had “experience” with people like me and would not sign off on it.

    That was at an ostensibly Catholic college so God knows what it was like at secular ones even then.

  • My responses:
    .
    Yale / Student Activism: You are in college to learn and not to be an activist. You are a student because really, you don’t know anything. Shut your freaking trap and learn so that you can successfully graduate, get a job and not be a burden on the taxpayer.
    .
    Islamaphobia / Refugees: If you commit an act of terrorism, then regardless of your religion or where you are from, you will be shot dead. Got that? And in the United States, we have this thing called the US Constitution. So take your Sharia Law and shove it wwhere the sun does not shine.
    .
    House Master Title: I pay the mortgage and the property taxes, not you. If you don’t like my rules, then move the heck out. I am the master and you are not. Only my wife gets to override me. Period.
    .
    Black Murders in the Street: If you commit a crime, then whether you are black, brown, white, red, yellow, purple, orange or green, you should expect to be shot by the police. And if you are a policeman or policewoman and you purposefully shoot an innocent person, then you can expect to go to court and face the full penalty of the law.
    .
    And for the kicker, Social Justice: You want social justice? Wait till God Almighty gives it for the unborn. Then you will get more social justice than you can possibly handle.

  • Thankfully there was such a huge backlash from both Harvard students AND parents, they’ve got their tails between their legs and since had to apologize.

    The Harvard Republican Club came up with their own response. It’s great. Check it out:

    http://www.weaselzippers.us/246055-harvard-republicans-respond-to-the-colleges-social-justice-warrior-holiday-placemat-and-school-apologizes/

  • That placemat would make a nice target for the range. I can visualize a four inch grouping on that plate right now.

  • Mike Rowe is right.

    Higher education has become indoctrination for the Left. It is reinforcement for the nonsense shoved at them in public school. I would rather my sons learn to be electricians or auto body shop owners than saddled with a semi useless degree.

  • @Elizabeth Fitzmaurice.

    Great find. Common sense placemat.

    @Lucius Quinctius Cincinnatus.

    Your response is appreciated too.
    All of them. Especially the Social Justice remark. When the politically correct face this horrible social injustice at the foot of Almighty God, then and only then, will they finally see the harm they have caused by supporting and promoting abortion on demand. The war on women is nothing until the women wade through miles of rotted corpses, the collateral damage they caused, in their war. Then they will understand why Pro-Life folks value each and every life. Then they will know they were the gas chambers, the starvation bunkers and firing squads in this war on women. They will then understand it was truly a war on humanity, and they were the oppressors.
    Rant is over.

  • Which is more pathetic, the assumption that Harvard students are emotional cripples who need to be coached through the process of having a normal discussion, or the assumption that a particular position on a set of issues is the Harvard position?

  • I know, I know, I’m stating the obvious, but still: what if a particular student has heard students expressing their experiences of racism and considered it complaining? Should that student say that he didn’t? Were the authors of this piece unable to conceive of the possibility that someone had considered it complaining? Even if you believe that there is one Harvard position on this issue, do you also believe that there’s one Harvard experience on it? If asked to suggest the Catholic position on an issue, say on abortion, I could give you a fairly generic three or four points to hit, but I wouldn’t think of telling you how you should describe your feelings on it, or what you’ve experienced. That’s because Catholicism is nowhere near as rigid and doctrinaire as Harvard.

  • I vote that the idea they have to be coached (take a breath) thru how to converse with their “loved ones” is by far the most pathetic.

Indoctrination

Monday, August 31, AD 2015

 

I have always been pretty conservative.  Well, at least since the age of seven when I backed Barry Goldwater in 1964.  In college I often clashed with liberal professors.  I recall one education professor who went off on a leftist rant in class.  I stood it as long as I could and then yelled out, “That is garbage sir, pure garbage!”  The shocked look on my classmates was classic!  He graded my work in the course as an A anyway.  I have to hand it to all the liberal professors that I battled, that none of them downgraded me because of my stances.  Judging from the following at Instapundit, times have changed for the worse:

 

THEY OUGHT TO BE FIRED: It’s back to school time, and progressive professors at Washington State University are gearing up to suppress speech they personally find “offensive,” such as saying “illegal alien,” using the terms “male” or “female,” or failing to “defer” to the “experiences of people of color”:

In his “Introduction to Multicultural Literature,” for example, professor John Streamas informs students in his syllabus that he expects white students who want “to do well in this class” to “reflect” their “grasp of history and social relations” by “deferring to the experiences of people of color.”

The taxpayer-funded critical studies professor also writes in his syllabus that Glenn Beck is a member of a group of “insensitive whites.”

Streamas, who obtained his Ph.D. at Bowling Green State University, is most notable because he told a student who supports limits on illegal immigration: “You are just a white shitbag.” . . .

A second Washington State faculty member, Selena Lester Breikss, warns students in her “Women & Popular Culture” course this semester that they risk “failure for the semester” if they use the terms “male” or “female.” . . .

“Students will come to recognize how white privilege functions in everyday social structures and institutions,” Breikss adds.

Finally, not to be outdone, Washington State American studies professor Rebecca Fowler similarly warns students that she will lower their grades if they utter the phrase “illegal alien” at any time in her “Introduction to Comparative Ethnic Studies” course.

The taxpayer-funded Fowler proclaims that she bans students from using the phrase “illegal alien” because the Associated Press stylebook “no longer sanctions the term.”

The Associated Press stylebook is purely an advisory publication for professional journalists. It has no force of law whatsoever. . . . Public university students who dare to use the phrase “illegal alien” “will suffer a deduction of one point per incident,” Fowler warns.

Apparently these sensitive little snowflake professors cannot tolerate any disagreement. For their failure to tolerate a diversity of views and engage in actual teaching (rather than proselytizing), they should be terminated for “cause.” Parents and students should avoid this university at all costs, unless/until the University’s administration takes appropriate disciplinary action to ensure that all viewpoints are welcomed, even those that are “offensive.” It’s called “free speech,” and yes, it protects offensive speech, too.

  • This why Trump’s numbers are so large. He’s too rich to care about anyone’s opinion….and its refreshing. He’s the opposite of political correctness though as months go on he might offend so many groups ( short people e.g. via his Rand Paul quip..” I’ve had it up to here ( hand at mid chest ) with you”)….that they’ll be no group left he hasn’t insulted. Or people will just vote for him anyway as a four year vacation from under-disclosing pols.

  • Free speech for the professors but not for the students, I assume? Is free speech a goal, or a means to an end in academia? Whatever happened to the lifelong search for truth?
    Once that was the purpose of education and now truth has been relegated to being a flexible substance like clay, to be molded or kept locked up in a tin, never to be touched by any except the anointed.

  • Bill Clinton legalized a million illegal aliens making citizens of them one Saturday afternoon. Even though, the now legal aliens could not read English or the Constitution, they were instructed in how to vote for Bill Clinton, their benefactor, with our tax dollars. The illegal aliens are how Bill Clinton got a second term. and it is possible that Obama is more ruthless than Clinton, either one, Bill or Hillary. If Obama wants to be emperor, who is to stop him? or change the Constitution, who is to stop him? Illegal aliens cannot even read our road signs. So, the tax payers better not complain. Illegal alien has become a dirty word, and taxpayer has become an endangered species.

  • in 1974 I started college as a 26 year old Freshman on the GI bill. Our freshman chemistry class for science majors had maybe 150 students in it. The grand professor lectured 3 days a week and the TAs taught the other two days and ran the labs. On our first hourly, being nervous as I was new to college, as a jocular tension breaker I wrote JMJ on top of my paper. The TAs graded the papers and I got a good grade but my TA Herb(Jewish so he did not know) said the prof wanted to know what the JMJ was. I told him. Herb never graded any more of my papers, the mighty prof did and he marked the hell out of them. I could tell by Herb’s face that he was ashamed of the prof. I had to work like hell to salvage a B out of the course after a high A on the first hourly. So savagery against Christians by egotistical and atheistic professors is not a new thing for students but perhaps it is now more honestly dishonest. My class was at the University of Maryland.

  • College? I put up with this excrement in seventh grade…in a matter of speaking. In the last class of the day, the chapter in the textbook we were reading was covering the Olduvai Gorge in Africa, where some of the most ancient pre-human fossils have been found.

    The climate there is very hot and very dry – almost completely unhospitable to human life today. Being a smartass seventh grader, i said I wouldn’t want to live there. The teacher, a Mrs. Dawalt (she was called Daywart because of the massive mole on the side of her chin) asked me what I said and I repeated myself. She gave me a C grade the rest of the year even though I got As and Bs on all my tests, quizzes and homework. You see, I was a racist – according to her.

    Kent State University is a rat’s nest of leftists, with the possible exception of the business school, but that exception was during the Reagan Administration. Now, who knows? I hope my sons grow up to be hockey players or electricians or restore classic cars. Higher education is a multi-billion dollar ripoff.

  • I was too Catholic in a catholic university. Still got good grades and ultimately it gave me a better education for having to dig deeper to argue my points.

  • Trump reminds me of Nimrod.

  • Trump favorite book is the bible.
    If this was the gong show he’d be gone.
    I am not impressed either by politically correct speech nor impolitic speech..
    It’s truth we are after
    .
    Trump = liar
    Hillary = liar

  • Trump makes me laugh. I wander what type of President he would be if elected into office. I only know him from The Apprentice- a permanent scowl and horrible hair. You can’t get worse than your current…can you?

  • What to do about those fascists?
    .

    Someday the worm will turn.
    .
    Seven out of ten believe America is headed the wrong way. The rulers do not care about the majority.
    .
    The middle class and its economic power are in sharp decline (burgeoning Obamcare taxes, skyrocketing energy (global warming, war on coal) costs, regulations Dodd-Frank, CFPB, etc.) killing agriculture, banking, commerce, etc.). And, those fascist, philosopher kings want it like that because craven dependents and serfs are easier to control. .
    .
    What are you prepared to do?

  • Our youngest son has gone back to school in liberal Northern VA to prep for transfer into petroleum engineering. This semester he signed up for Sociology 101as an elective. Since he’s very logical and conservative, my parental advice on taking a “soft science” like soc was ” just regurgitate what your prof tells you or your grade will suffer”. Our older son signed up for a first year English lit course at a CA college. Turned out It was not as advertised as it was all about Black Power. The syllabus came out after the drop date (a sneaky trick which more and more profs are pulling). He told the administration that he felt his personal safety was threatened in that class as a Caucasian minority; he’s a tough kid so it must have been bad. Luckily he was able to drop w/o any financial or academic penalties. He transferred to another state university as a hard science major where he didn’t have to listen to any nutty BS.
    On the other hand my husband on his grad school application to an liberal Ivy League university, stated that he was conservative politically and they should admit him for diversity. He was admitted. We think it was the DOD funded scholarship that they couldn’t resist.

Indoctrination Not Education

Sunday, July 27, AD 2014

 

 

One of the more ironic developments during the past half century has been the transformation of most colleges and universities from places of learning into citadels of indoctrination.  Examples abound.  Here is a recent one:

An Ohio State University (OSU) class has apparently determined another fundamental difference between Christians and atheists: their IQ points.

An online quiz from the school’s Psychology 1100 class, provided to Campus Reform via tip, asked students to pick which scenario they found most likely given that “Theo has an IQ of 100 and Aine has an IQ of 125.”

The correct answer? “Aine is an atheist, while Theo is a Christian.”

  • Two observations

    1. Tom Wolfe’s view that the press corps is largely made up of men who were clocked on the school playground and want revenge.

    2. Barry Allan Shain’s assessment (unpublished) that faculty are largely made up of people who, as youths, were less affluent than the students they teach and not as socially adept as the students they teach.

    Both men offered that these formative experiences are important vectors, if not dominant vectors, in explaining the politics of these occupational groups.

  • I noticed this when I was at Kent State in the 1980s. Much of the KSU faculty I encountered was a bunch of leftists. Given what happened there in May 1970 I expected that.

    The Leftists thoroughly permeate the educational bureaucratic monster that engufs billions of taxpayer dollars and indoctrinates children.

  • Professors and upperclassmen in the STEM departments are often amused by the innumeracy of people in the Psych department, especially their profs and TAs. The Psychos are doubly incompetent at statistics.

    I have met two Fields Medallists (both French) and, as it happens, one was a practising Catholic and the other an orthodox Jew. One has no way of knowing, of course, but I would imagine their IQs were pretty considerable

  • Education is teaching persons how to think, not what to think. A thinking person wants to know how an individual can stand as an example for an entire group of his peers. Teachers are entrusted with minor children who have not achieved emancipation, children, who must be taught how to challenge the status quo, or civilization will go backwards to the invention of the wheel.
    .
    When adults have not been taught how to think, they cannot appreciate freedom, they remain children, uninformed.

  • “The Mortal Storm”, a movie from 1940 depicting 1933 Germany, is about half over as I post this comment. There is human interest involving transformations of friends of youth, a professor at work, and the changes in family life.

    Education has now become a product of political party, union, and lobbying to, in the bottom line, generate solid income for them.

Of Camels, Humps and Chumps

Camel Crossing

One of my more cherished photos is of my three kids when they were little riding a camel.  The kids had a great time and the camel was gentle, obviously well cared for and very patient with the kids.  My bride and I had taught them about camels and they loved being able to ride on one.  It was therefore with some interest that I glanced at the latest example of moronic political correctness on campus:

Students at the University of St. Thomas in Minnesota have cancelled an event to celebrate the end of the year after complaints that bringing a camel on campus could offend those of Middle Eastern cultures.

The “Hump Day” event, put on by the Residence Hall Association (RHA), was supposed to be “a petting zoo type of atmosphere” in which students could hang out and take photos with a live camel. According to Aaron Macke, the group’s advisor, the camel is owned by a local vendor and trained for special events.

But the event was subsequently cancelled after students took to Facebook to proclaim their concerns. The students said they were concerned about the money spent on bringing the camel to campus—around $500—and the implication that it would be racially insensitive to Middle Eastern cultures.

The Facebook group called “Protest Hump DAAAAAAY!” had more than 100 RSVP’d attendees before it was deleted on Wednesday.

“RHA’s goal in programming is to bring residents together in a fun and safe environment where all people can enjoy themselves,” RHA president Lindsay Goodwin said in a statement on RHA’s Facebook page. “It appears however, this program is dividing people and would make for an uncomfortable and possibly unsafe environment for everyone attending or providing the program. As a result, RHA has decided to cancel the event.”

  • It is perhaps not without a delicious sense of irony that these students are unintentionally engaging in racial insensitivity of their own by 1. overlooking the fact that camels are not native only to Middle Eastern regions 2. neglecting to be concerned that the peoples of central Asia (for example) might likewise be offended, and/or implying that those of the Middle East are more likely to be offended.

  • “Camels, humps, and chumps.” It sounds like a title for a Three Stooges comedy! And since this whole thing is a farce anyway, this post gives these idiots a well deserved poke in the eye! Nyuk, nyuk, nyuk!

Of Aging Porn Stars and Aging Ideologies

Friday, February 8, AD 2013

 

 

 

 

My alma mater, the University of Illinois, brought a 58 year old porn star, Annie Sprinkle, to campus to teach students young enough to be her grandkids about orgasms this week.  Go here to read the story in the campus newspaper The Daily IIllini, or as generations of U of I students have referred to it, The Daily Illiterate.

It would take a heart of stone and a mind of lead not to laugh at this feeble attempt to shock.  Annie Sprinkle, or Ellen F. Steinberg, her birth name, has been doing this schtick since long before most current U of I students were born.  Something that was shocking in the Seventies of the last century is completely old hat in the porn drenched Twenty-First century.  (The U of I having an abstinence activist speak would truly be a shocking event in our current amoral climate.)  So why bring her to the U of I?

Well, and do not laugh, the ostensible reason is diversity, at least accord to this blog entry by Jordan Glaser:

  • In the spirit of diversity a pig farmer, (let’s call her Scratchie) is available to discuss the proper retrieval and careful application of pig feces in our wanting culture.
    Because most college attendees are inexperienced in such matters, it would help them to appreciate the finer aspects of pig excrement. After all we want the students informed and enlightened….right?

  • I have believed for some time that one the sure ways to dumb down the young is make a college education more accessible. This goes a long way in proving me right.

  • It is ironic that this pervert is lecturing to students who know as much as she does about heterosexual sex due to the prevalence of widespread pornography. She probably gets her support from a NGO. Ms. Steinberg probably has another agenda of opening the minds of female students of the ‘wonders’ of female masturbation, experimental lesbianism and reproductive choice. It is all part of an overall process of social conditioning and transformation of young minds and bodies to conform to new age and socialist morality.

  • Diversity of what? I suppose it’s an important skill to learn how to not be embarrassed by pathetic baby-boomers, though.

    Philip made his comment as a joke, but I’d bet that you could get a lot more diversity by having a pig farmer give a lecture. But isn’t that what schools are supposed to do in, like, second grade? Parents’ Careers Day?

  • The modesty and intimate privacy of the orgasm laid bare to public scrutiny, and purposely denied the procreative act is soul rape, a violation of the true nature of the human person, body and soul, the avant guarde of nasty totalitarianism.

  • (from Wikipedia) Enculturation is the process by which people learn the requirements of their surrounding culture and acquire values and behaviours appropriate or necessary in that culture.[1] As part of this process, the influences that limit, direct, or shape the individual (whether deliberately or not) include parents, other adults, and peers. If successful, enculturation results in competence in the language, values and rituals of the culture.

    We do it in television, movies, literature, why leave out “higher” education.

    Screwtape is alive and well; we not only pay him too much attention, as C. S. Lewis warned us about, but then we court him – and his most effective tool, progressivism, the rate of which seems to keep accelerating.

  • What a joke. The Chinese are laughing at us as they build a dozen more skyscrapers this month… “Diversity,” yes, that means upper-middle-class liberals from New York AND California!

  • C. S. Lewis spoke of chronological snobbery and did much to debunk the myth of progress. Then I think of G. K. Chesterton who once said that he who marries himself to the worldview will soon be widowed. And I think of his constant sense of how the world grows old while Christianity is ever new.

  • STUDENTS in COLLEGE need to learn about orgasms? These poor children, how deprived! Or is that depraved?

    In college, way back in 1975, I befriended a young girl I met who was sitting alone in our suite’s “living room”. She was red eyed and appeared to have been crying. I stopped and gently spoke with her to find out what was going on. I found out that one of my suite mates had invited her up to Buffalo to visit the University of Buffalo Campus and promised her a place to stay. When she arrived, she found out there was a “price” for her lodging, sexual favors, which she refused, so he told her to leave with no place to stay.

    My roommate was back in Brooklyn that weekend. She stayed in our room. I slept on the big couch in our suite “living room”. I was a prude, even then. So much for orgasms!

    God bless you, Don.
