The Road To Hell Was Paved With College Safe Spaces

That isn’t what this resistance is now doing. What they’re doing instead is trying to take maybe the only faction worse than Donald Trump, which is the deep state, like the CIA with its history of atrocities, and say they ought to almost engage in like a soft coup where they take the elected President and prevent him from enacting his policy. And I think it is extremely dangerous to do that.

 

– From Glenn Greenwald’s recent interview with Democracy Now

Earlier today, I posted the following tweet:

This observation was merely my latest twist on a theme I’ve been hammering home ever since Trump won the election. Namely, given there are so many obvious things to be concerned about when it comes to Trump (his love affair with Goldman Sachs, support of civil asset forfeiture and a statist mentality overall), why are we being manipulated into focusing all our outrage on a largely invented conspiracy theory that he is some sort of Putin stooge?

The reason is both extremely simple and extraordinarily clever. The main reason Russia is such an obsession within the fake “resistance,” is because it’s a way to demonize Trump while defending the police state apparatus. In other words, it prevents well-meaning people from taking Trump to task on issues that really matter. This way, they can simply distract with Russia noise and continue to loot and pillage society at large. It’s genius really. You create a fake yet salacious narrative and rally the gullible public around it in order to distract from real domestic problems. This way you can be “anti-Trump,” while at the same time being pro-Wall Street fraud, corporatism, war, unconstitutional spying, and the national security state. This is your “resistance” as it stands today.

For example, nobody should cheer the following, which was reported yesterday by The Daily Caller:

The talk within the tight-knit community of retired intelligence officers was that Flynn’s sacking was a result of intelligence insiders at the CIA, NSA and National Security Council using a sophisticated “disinformation campaign” to create a crisis atmosphere. The former intel officers say the tactics hurled against Flynn over the last few months were the type of high profile hard-ball accusations previously reserved for top figures in enemy states, not for White House officials.

 

“This was a hit job,” charged retired Col. James Williamson, a 32-year Special Forces veteran who coordinated his operations with the intelligence community.

 

“I’ve never seen anything like this before,” Retired Col. James Waurishuk, who spent three decades in top military intelligence posts and served at the National Security Council, said in an interview with TheDCNF. “We’ve never seen to the extent that those in the intelligence community are using intelligence apparatus and tools to be used politically against an administration official,” he said.

 

“The knives are out,” said Frederick Rustman, who retired after 24 years from the CIA’s Clandestine Service and was a member of its elite Senior Intelligence Service.

 

The intelligence community’s sprawling bureaucracy is organizing to topple the Trump presidency, Rustman charged in an interview with TheDCNF.

This is a very dangerous game to play. You open this box and there’s no closing it up again. As someone named David Hines so wisely noted on Twitter earlier today:

Which brings me to the next question. How are so many of our fellow citizens being so easily herded into obsessing about Russia conspiracy theories, when we face so many dire, existential problems?

The useless mainstream media is obviously a key part of the problem, but there’s more. Specifically, I think what’s been going on at U.S. universities is equally destructive. Indeed, it seems the minds of our children have been stunted in a very damaging way by the people in charge of “higher education.”

To explain the extent of the problem, I want to highlight a few passages from an excellent article by social psychologist at NYU’s Stern Business School, Jonathan Haidt.

The term microaggression has swept through the academy in English speaking countries in the last two or three years. Lilienfeld (2017, this issue) has done the academy a great service in analyzing the concept and showing why it is not ready to serve as the scientific basis for new policies and programs being rolled out at many universities. In this commentary, I will extend Lilienfeld’s analysis and show why the “microaggression program” (as I’ll call the combination of theory and on-campus applications) is more damaging and less salvageable than Lilienfeld suggests. In fact, it may be the least wise idea one can find on a college campus today.

 

To write my first book, The Happiness Hypothesis (Haidt, 2006), I read a large number of ancient texts and extracted every psychological claim I could find. I organized ancient wisdom into 10 “great truths.” It’s hard to identify the one greatest truth of all time, but surely one of the top three most important, most generative, and most life-improving psychological insights, discovered thinkers in all major civilizations, is the importance appraisal:

 

The whole universe is change and life itself is but what you deem it. (Marcus Aurelius, 1964; Meditations, 4:3)

 

What we are today comes from our thoughts of yesterday, and our present thoughts build our life of tomorrow: our life is the creation of our mind. (Buddha, The Dhammapada, in Mascaro, 1973)

 

The ancients knew that we don’t react to the world it is; we react to the world as we construct it in our own minds. They also knew that in the process of construction we are overly judgmental and outrageously hypocritical; we urgently need to reduce our moral certainty and cultivate generosity of spirit:

 

Why do you see the speck in your neighbor’s eye, but do not notice the log in your own eye? . . . You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your neighbor’s eye. (Matthew 7:3–5)

 

It is easy to see the faults of others, but difficult to see one’s own faults. One shows the faults of others like chaff winnowed in the wind, but one conceals one’s own faults as a cunning gambler conceals his dice. (Buddha, The Dhammapada)

 

The microaggression program teaches students the exact opposite of ancient wisdom. Microaggression training is—by definition—instruction in how to detect ever smaller specks in your neighbor’s eye. Microaggression training tells students that “life itself is exactly what you think it is—you have a direct pipeline to reality, and the person who offended you does not, so go with your feelings.” Of course, the ancients could be wrong on these points, but the empirical evidence for the importance of appraisal and the ubiquity of bias and hypocrisy is overwhelming (I review it in chapters 2 and 4 of The Happiness Hypothesis). As Lilienfeld shows, the empirical evidence supporting the utility and validity of the micro- aggression concept is minimal at best.

 

I think the section of Lilienfeld’s article that should most make us recoil from the microaggression program is the section on personality traits, particularly negative emotionality and the tendency to perceive oneself as a victim. These are traits—correlated with depression and anxiety disorders—that some students bring with them from high school to college. Students who score high on these traits perceive more microaggressions in ambiguous circumstances. These traits therefore bring misery and anger to the students themselves, and these negative emotions and the conflicts they engender are likely to radiate outward through the students’ social networks (Christakis & Fowler, 2009). How should colleges (and other institutions) respond to the presence of high scorers in their midst? Should they offer them cognitive behavioral therapy or moral validation? Should they hand them a copy of The Dhammapada or a microaggression training manual.

 

It’s bad enough to make the most fragile and anxious students quicker to take offense and more self-certain and self-righteous. But what would happen if you took a whole campus of diverse students, who arrive from all over the world with very different values and habits, and you train all of them to react with pain and anger to ever-smaller specks that they learn to see in each other’s eyes? 

Indeed, it’s become clear to me that we have more or less raised at least one generation of zombies in this country, and it appears the guardians of higher education are hellbent on creating more. Zombies don’t lead, they follow — mindlessly and destructively. We can see them everywhere, on both the right and the left, as the level of dialogue descends into the gutter and we appear entirely incapable of addressing any of our real problems, let alone solving them.

Meanwhile, if you want to get a sense of where the victim mentally obsession eventually gets you, take a look at what’s currently happening at the University of California San Diego.

Quartz reports:

Chinese students are joining their peers on American campuses in getting woke. Their cause? Defending the official line of the Communist Party.

 

On Feb. 2, the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) formally announced that the Dalai Lama would make a keynote speech at the June commencement ceremony.

 

The announcement triggered outrage among Chinese students who view the exiled Tibetan spiritual leader as an oppressive figure threatening to divide a unified China. A group of them now plans to meet with the university chancellor to discuss the content of the upcoming speech.

 

The awkwardness doesn’t end there. As the aggrieved students have trumpeted their opposition, their rhetoric has borrowed elements from larger campus activist movements across the United States. The upshot: What Westerners might perceive as Communist Party orthodoxy is mingling weirdly with academia’s commitment to diversity, political correctness, and other championed ideals.

 

Opposition to the Dalai Lama among Chinese authorities is nothing new, of course. Less recognized in the West is that many Chinese citizens feel the same way as the government. At UCSD, the Chinese-student opposition to the invitation came instantly. Just hours after the announcement, the Chinese Students and Scholars Association (CSSA) issued a lengthy, Chinese-language note on WeChat saying it had communicated with the Chinese consulate about the matter.

 

UCSD is a place for students to cultivate their minds and enrich their knowledge. Currently, the various actions undertaken by the university have contravened the spirit of respect, tolerance, equality, and earnestness—the ethos upon which the university is built. These actions have also dampened the academic enthusiasm of Chinese students and scholars. If the university insists on acting unilaterally and inviting the Dalai Lama to give a speech at the graduation ceremony, our association vows to take further measures to firmly resist the university’s unreasonable behavior. Specific details of these measures will be outlined in our future statements.

 

This is not the first time that overseas Chinese students at US colleges have voiced opposition to certain campus events perceived as disrespectful to China. In 2008, hundreds gathered at the University of Washington to rally against the Dalai Lama’s acceptance of an honorary degree. But typically, criticism is couched in familiar tropes like “hurting the feelings of the Chinese people,” rather than failing to account for diversity.

 

“If there were an objection to the Dalai Lama speaking on campus 10 years ago, you would not have seen the objection from Chinese students being framed within the rhetoric of diversity and inclusion,” says professor Jeffrey Wasserstrom, who researches modern Chinese history at the University of California, Irvine. “There is a borrowing of rhetorical strategies.”

 

John Li, a UCSD student and principal member of the CSSA who requested Quartz not use his real name, says the chancellor invited a group of overseas Chinese students for a meeting on Feb. 15. According to him, the group won’t ask the chancellor to disinvite the Dalai Lama. But it will request that he “send out statements that clarify the content of Dalai Lama’s speech,” “make sure his speech has nothing to do with politics,” and “stop using words like ‘spiritual leader’ or ‘exile’” to describe the Dalai Lama.

 

Li, the CSSA member, says that he hasn’t engaged with any non-Chinese student in person regarding Tibetan history and the nature of the Dalai Lama’s politics. But he’s nevertheless frustrated by a lack of consideration toward the arguments his Chinese peers share on Facebook.

 

Yet several factors could cause Chinese overseas students to grow more vocal in expressing their opinions in matters of politics, which at times may or may not conform with views held by most Westerners.

 

For one thing, more overseas Chinese students are studying in the US than ever before. According to the Institute of International Education, more than 304,000 international students were attending university in the US during the 2014-2015 academic year, marking a nearly fivefold increase from a decade prior.

 

UCSD, along with other public universities in California and in the Midwest, has seen some of the highest uptake in admissions from Chinese international students. Data published in the fall of 2015 placed the school’s total overseas Chinese student population at 3,569—marking 10.6% of the total student population, and 55.7% of the international student population.

These students also tend to pay full tuition. Indeed, some of the complaints among Chinese students on Facebook center around how they find it unfair that that their monetary contributions to the school aren’t reflected in the choice of the speaker.

 

There’s also suspicion among some academics that CSSA, which represents students at UCSD and dozens of other US universities, sometimes serves as a conduit for Chinese consulates to promulgate Communist Party orthodoxy on overseas campuses. Last week, an official at the Chinese embassy in London reportedly phoned Durham University’s debate society, urging it to cancel an appearance by Anastasia Lin, a Chinese-Canadian beauty queen and vocal human rights activist. The school’s CSSA issued a statement also condemning Lin’s appearance.

 

In its initial statement opposing the Dalai Lama’s appearance, UCSD’s CSSA wrote that it had “been in contact with the People’s Republic of China Consulate General in Los Angeles at the earliest opportunity since the matter arose,” and “was waiting for the advice of the Consulate General.”

 

Li tells Quartz that this part of the letter is “a mistake.”

When the Dalai Lama receives more protest from America’s college kids than Lloyd Blankfein, you know something’s very wrong.

Still waiting on the resistance.

old war machine tactics coming from houston

It's funny, many Chinese kids I talk to tells me "nobody in (Chinese) leadership believes in communism."

Also, they aren't SJWs either. I'm finding that the SJW Left really is a tiny but loud minority. In so many words, 2% of a student body (20,000 -> 400) can surround a building and make a lot of hell, but they are only 2%.

Blankone's picture

The Chinese kids are well founded in their dislike of the Dalai.  Those in the US believe the myth started long ago (1940's or 50's I think) about Tibet being a Shangri La.  The Dalai and his religion is perverted and oppressive.  There are many ways to research in on the internet in some detail including a web site by one of the groups the Dalai exiled and framed as terrorists (could not find it quickly).

A starting place is The Making of Modern Tibet by Tom Grunfeld.

The kids are most likely protesting because they are snowflakes but because they are better educated of the background of the Tibet, Dalai(s) and the religion.

All religions are oppressive. And China is up there with the best of them when it comes to oppression. We're pretty bad but China is just downright cancerous.

So what did you find not oppressive about godless capitalism of the "free" market, and the Chicago boys backed by the Zio-Anglo-US MIC and MS media domination over time? And I'm sorry but only someone who has not researched the matter in any depth can compare Buddhist philosophy with religious dogma.

When I was 19 I met the Dalai Lama. That was in 1970. I was in college in Glasgow Scotland. I had come there from Uruguay where I had been living, prior to which I had been in Chile. These countries were ripped apart by neo-colonialism directed from Washington. At my collage we had students, with Che hats, as well as young conservatives, everyone at their tender years, with little experience knew absolutely how to make a better world. I founded a small apolitical club, The Universal Society, in an attempt to supplement our curriculum, and daily diet of propaganda, with interesting lectures on subjects that would "broaden" the minds of anyone who actually wanted to learn rather than pontificate. Speakers were invited democratically by the society members. We had great lectures on arts and sciences.

The Beatles had just come back from their stint with the Maharishi in India, and a lot of students wanted to know about "Asian Religions". Scotland had two Buddhist monasteries in Ayrshire, with exiled monks from Tibet. So we invited them to send us "a monk" to tell us what they were doing there. After a lot of questions about the non- political nature of our little club, they finally said they had someone in mind, and sent us the Dalai Lama.

At the end of his talk when it came to questions, one of the Che types asked, if when he (the Dalai Lama) was to meet the UK PM, Harold Wilson at the time, would he discuss UK's abrogation of the 1906 Treaty with China respecting Tibet. HH answered that, it was a valid question, however he understood that the Universal Society was founded on the principal of being a non-political forum for knowledge, so perhaps he might address that question on another occasion, but would welcome questions on awareness, the mind, and the elimination of suffering which were the themes of his talk.

Judgement is something that can only be made with a great deal of knowledge and wisdom and even then is often inappropriate, as all things change with experience and time. But I never forgot or have doubted the wisdom and philosophy of compassion of HH the Dalai Lama from that day on.

This article seems to confirm that in the last 50 years, all those passionate political convictions haven't changed much for the better of mankind then, now or in between. Alas.

I lived in China... the gov is so oppressive there that you literally have no idea until you live there (the majority of ppl there dislike the gov btw). For instance they forcefully took a blood sample from me and every westerner staying there over 2 weeks... I remember that day, an absolute mad house. They justified it on the basis of testing for infectious diseases but I suspect there it'll be used for some bizarre research ... smh.

You said, "There are many ways to research in on the internet in some detail..."

Not in China. The whole subject is banned comprehensively by the Communist Party and its Great Firewall. Communists can't handle the truth, so they ban it.

Then you said, "...but because they are better educated of the background of the Tibet, Dalai(s) and the religion."

Your poor grammar indicates you are either a paid Party propaganda Wumao, or you are uneducated yourself, or, more likely, both.

Just fuck off.

Blankone's picture

You deflecting away from the discussion/issue.  Which is the false religion of the Dalai(s)/Tibet not just now but through history.  The Dalai(s) and the regents have abused the blind followers of their religion since it began.

I seriously doubt that China is preventing their citizens from information regarding how corrupted the Tibet religion is.  While China allows the religion without restrictions they still do not support it and would like the truth about it to be better known.

Read the book I referenced for a beginning.  If you care about the Tibet people get educated, if you care about those who followed the rotten Dalai to India you to would want to know what a bit of scum the Dalai.

Do you not even know that the Dalai officially denied he was taking CIA money, and then later when the CIA had to release the documents as they were no longer a security issue it was revealed that the Dalai WAS taking CIA money and lied to all about it.  Did the Dalai not support and repeatedly meet with the nut in Japan who tried to commit the terrorist attack.  And even then did not condemn him.  Did the Dalai not get busted for secret money taking/profits that were hiden from the govt of India.  Do not the Dalai(s), the regents and their clergy not have a history of child sex slaves, including raping little boys.  When in Tibet were not the ranking clergy not allowed to take women for their use and to take children from families.

This Dalai has a cute act where he giggles and acts like a child while dressed in disarming robes.  That is your first clue.

Many people in the US and Europe know nothing about the Tibetan feudalism, the euphemism word for Serfdom/Slavery. Before China reinstated its rule there, the feudal class incl the Lamas had many serfs (and often those serfs were sexually abused), there were only two classes in Tibet back then, born as a serf owner or born as serf him/herself. Those Tibetan who ran away to India belonged to the ruling class (serf owners)... while all the serfs were immediately freed and became free persons and ever since have been enjoying better lives.

If you ever have chance to visit the Potala Palace in Lhasa, you will notice the many torturing chambers within the palace, incl. the unimaginable cruelty, gorged out the eyeball of the punished serf. I once went there for sightseeing so I saw these facilities.

I do too, in the same sense as Falun Gong. The leader is over here demanding money all the time, but he won't visit countries where his followers desperately want to see him.

Of course, Falun Gong is much worse as they are more or less the Scientology of the East.

A Chinese man once told me after a few:

"You don't teach your people Chinese. But we are all learning English. We are reading your books. We're studying your history and culture. In 10 years, China will take over America."

That is what most Chinese believe. Mexicans aren't our only problem.

If one studies the amount of gold being bought up by the Chinese gov't over the past 10+ years, estimates the amount they mine (2nd biggest miner in world), they have between 10,000 and 30,000 tonnes. The US probably has none thanks to the Clinton/Rubin team (remember the tungsten deliveries and gold covered tungsten bars being pawned off by Clinton admin back in 90's).

So, should Russia and China go to a gold backed note for international settlement, as has been theorized by some analysts. The US will likely have to lease massive gold tonnage from China in order to continue imports of oil and other essential products while it is ramping up domestic production. Should this occur, you can expect that China will become quite large influence on the US. in all manner of speaking.

I agree, it's a win-win situation. Locals won't be forced to mix with other races, degrading their own genetic heritage. And international students, being one of the few groups who pay tuition in full, will save A LOT of money from the hyped, over valued, hyper inflated cost of American universities. Getting their brains filled with Communist and Marxist propaganda (that's what American universities are nowadays) while subsidizing people who don't want them there in first place.

The left isn't fascist. This, ironmarch.org is fascist. The left is totalitarian neo-communism or cultural Marxism, cultural Communism, whatever you want to call totalitarian decadence. Huge difference between the left and fascism. Fascists absolutely hate the left because fascists hate evil degeneracy. Degeneracy is an anti-social anti-morality that, if followed as directed, destroys civilization rather than growing civilization.

Fascism is right wing totalitarianism and the left (neo-Marxist, cultural Marxist, neo-communist) is going for left wing totalitarianism. And the center is being torn to shreds between these two warring factions because liberty, democracy, and freedom cannot function in a decadent, degenerate society without widespread, true, absolute morality. The elite Jews don't help things either.   thezog.info.com    jewwatch.com

Not all Jews are evil. Actually, let me rephrase that: not all Jews are powerful enough to be very evil. But the top 10% of the Jews are a Satanic world-plague that, as you research the facts and put aside deep fears of being anti-Semitic, you will realize are a major problem to this nation and every other nation. I'm not calling for Holocaust or anything of the sort. It just is curious that so many Jews play such key roles in establishing evil degeneracy in this realm. After death, we don't have to worry about things such as these, but for now, any man who desires a beautiful world must first minimize ugliness.

Educate, recruit, organize, and then we will have the synergistic power to give the masters of the world a run for their money. It ain't over yet.

Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?

I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.

– Revelation 2:9

 

Ethics were so little understood among the Jews that, in their whole compilation called the Talmud, there is only one treatise on moral subjects. Their books of morals chiefly consisted in a minute enumeration of duties. It may serve to give the reader some idea of the low state of moral philosophy among the Jews in the middle age, to add, that of the two hundred and forty-eight affirmative precepts, only three were considered as obligatory upon women; and that, in order to obtain salvation, it was judged sufficient to fulfill any one single all in the hour of death; the observance of the rest being deemed necessary only to increase the felicity of the future life. What a wretched depravity of sentiment and manners must have prevailed before such corrupt maxims could have obtained credit! It is impossible to collect from these writings a consistent series of moral doctrine.

– Thomas Jefferson, Memoir, Correspondence, & Miscellanies: From the Papers of Thomas Jefferson

 

The only statement I care to make about the Protocols is that they fit in with what is going on.

– Henry Ford

 

If this hostility, even aversion, had only been shown towards the Jews at one period and in one country, it would be easy to unravel the limited causes of this anger, but this race has been, on the contrary, an object of hatred to all the peoples among whom it has established itself. It must be therefore, since the enemies of the Jews belonged to the most diverse races, since they lived in countries very distant from each other, since they were ruled by very different laws, governed by opposite principles, since they had neither the same morals, nor the same customs, since they were animated by unlike dispositions which did not permit them to judge of anything in the same way, it must be therefore that the general cause of anti-Semitism has always resided in Israel itself and not in those who have fought against Israel.

– Bernard Lazare

 

There is a trait in the Jewish character that does provoke animosity; maybe it’s a kind of lack of generosity towards non-Jews. I mean, there is always a reason why anti-anything crops up anywhere; even a stinker like Hitler didn’t just pick on them for no reason.

– Roald Dahl

 

The Jews should not be allowed to keep what they have obtained from others by usury; it were best that they were compelled to work so that they could earn their living instead of doing nothing but becoming avaricious.

– Thomas Aquinas, on the Governance of the Jews

 

All the world suffers from the usury of the Jews, their monopolies and deceit. They have brought many unfortunate people into a state of poverty, especially the farmers, working class people and the very poor.

To undo a Jew is charity, and not sin.

Jesus was a jew. Want to see evil? Look in a mirror.

I see this as straining at gnats and swallowing camels.

An old friend explained to me that we are taught to think in straight lines, but often the real world is circles.

For instance, we are  taught that we are in the middle, crooks are on the left, and cops are on the right.  In fact, as we know from countless books, endless news stories, and unending TV series, if we are in the middle, then crooks are on a downward curve to our left, and cops are on an a downward curve to our right.  The two curves in fact meet to form a circle, and at the point where they meet are the most dangerous crooks, who are also cops.

The same holds with socialists and fascists.  The socialists are down on the left curve.  The fascists are down on the right curve.  The two curves meet to form a circle, and at the point where they meet are the most dangerous individuals.  Those individuals are socialist and fascist.   Lenin ran a fascist government, and Hitler's party was socialist.  This has always been so, and will ever be so, and is so, right now, in the USA.

Today's example, "paid intelligence agency officers illegally and intentionally leaking General Flynn's name".  Those people are cops who are crooks.  They are also clearly fascists, and I bet they turn out to be socialists, too.

Spot on analysis, the common thread = crooks. What do crooks want? Money. Why ? Power. Why? Women. Weak men are perverted by money, in a race to power to buy.....Melania's

 

 

Same as it ever was....
