Higher ed becoming a joke: Column

From the economics to the politics, colleges and universities are looking less like serious places to improve one’s mind and one’s prospects, and more like expensive islands of frivolity and, sometimes, viciousness. And that is likely to have consequences.

Frivolity and viciousness.  That’s an excellent description of the entire progressive project, of which American higher education is just one tentacle. 

Progressivism, based as it is on a loosely-structured set of impossibilities, is at base frivolous in nature.  And because such flimsy ideological structures are mostly barren of productive outcomes, a problem that becomes more evident over time, a sense of desperation sets in with progressives themselves.  Who, being one-trick ponies, have no options other than to double down on the stupid of their clownish means and methods, a strategy that must, by necessity, devolve into viciousness.

It never ends well.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
