Universities in America have typically been dominated by a liberal bias. Why is that? Because, working for a University is sort of like working for the Government. There is reason for the expression, those who can't do - teach.
The mindset of employees at such insitutions is quite different than one might think. We're not going to name any names in this essay; this isn't about a person or individual University. It's about the intellectual class, really the only public intellectual class in America with any respect; the Ivory Tower. If you haven't heard this expression before, it refers to the high brow raised lip attitude class of University Professors and their associates. They have influence on every aspect of society. They are like Adam Smith's hidden hand - the subtle advisors who are secretly directing politics, big business, technology, and culture. Fortunately however, they don't have any power, and don't really control society, like the Illuminati do. Their influence however should be noted; they've influenced Presidents of the United States, Bankers, the Media (most notably) and literally every aspect of human life in America. I mean, who doesn't trust and respect a University Professor? They know what they're doing - right?
Now to be fair, not all University Professors are alike, we shant 'profile' them, as they profile individuals who have ideas they don't like. There's do-ers out there, especially around Silicon Valley where many have left their Ivory Tower positions to join startups or start them themselves. But the Ivory Tower class remains; and it remained until the Trump victory in November - a major influence on society and hallmark of American culture. But all that's been shattered. Their hidden influence on the media, should be noted by readers of Zero Hedge and other sites, people 'in the know'. Because they shape public opinion, possibly more than the CIA with all of it's domestic mind-control operations. Venues like "NPR" and even "The Simpsons" are carefully crafted with leftist messages, agendas for open expansion of foreign affairs, expansion of government, anti-male value systems, and other 'progressive' ideas are implanted like seeds, waiting to grow like weeds when the next rain comes.
Here's one example, how Academia helped the Media with their war against Trump. Have you been hearing recently "Studies show that.." .. "" or some such nonsense. Who are they polling? They claim their polls aren't biased, they are scientific.
The implications for politics and the broader economy are huge. Studies, focus groups, corporate funded research retreats, are one of the Establishment's, and the Ivory Tower's biggest tools. The election was a crack in the dam - it's a proof that you can't manipulate public opinion to fit your own. But it's far from the only crack, just the most obvious one. What's happening is a major system-wide Ivory Tower Psychosis, the most basic form of mental illness - but it's happening at a class level, as a group. Emotionally injured leftists are fleeing to Canada, or promoting secession for California (which is really a good idea by itself, who needs a Federal government). Reality is crashing down on them, as it doesn't fit with 'their reality' - but 'their reality' was artificially created for decades, depending on how you calculate.. For decades, Establishment leaders like George Bush created their own reality with their power, and even called it the
The Ivory Tower Bubble has popped; and we're seeing the casualties on a daily basis. It's certainly not the last establishment-class that we're going to see crack from the pressure of reality.
