And I'm surprised to see that you're worried about academia at all, given your ramblings on the superiority of economics and the free market.I'm suprised to hear you talk like this. Usually you're rambling on about society this, and society that, and how it's usually not individuals fault. I'm suprised that you don't think just because there are so many liberals in academia, that they'd use their "power" and "influence" which you always state is so important, to indoctrinate the students.
Yes, and part of taxpayers demands is a learning environment, not a protest zone so you can pitch the anti-hate vs the hate protests. (pro-life vs pro-choice, gay vs anti-gay, etc.)Well, it's generally different with public universities. When everyone pays for them with tax money, then tax payers have more of a claim on how they are run, etc.
Boo hoo denied tenure. I know people who blame not getting tenure on things like blogging. The fact of the matter is the entire process is arbitrary and it has more to do with the academic policies and structure in place than some grand liberal conspiracy theory.Did you listen to the whole thing? He documents cases like these. Suprise, suprise, none of them had liberal ideas.
Oh, so you're saying that academia should care about diversity, race, sexual orientation, and gender.. and at the same time, tolerate ideas such as anti-gay (homophobia), anti-black (racist), anti-female (misogyny) ones?Kors also brings up a good point about how academia claims to care a lot about diversity, but mainly on race, sexual orientation, gender (even though women get more college degrees then men now), etc. He asks, "Is this the only kind of diversity?" and claims that they don't care about diversity of ideas. I think he's pretty accurate on this point.
I love how you claim for "equality" of ideas, even when it's blatantly used to erode the equality set in place.
