The near sole purpose of present-day academia is indoctrination. This is a fairly bold thesis, but the evidence is in its favor.
The increasingly progressive leftist agenda is sweeping through academia and conservatives are passively watching it happen.
Indoctrination is no longer dependent upon the political beliefs of teachers. We are now past that. Course material is blatant political propaganda. Not just the course material for gender studies and similar. The core curricula of grade school through college.
Sciences, economics, literature – any core course you can think of is politically influenced.
The only course that may still be an exception is mathematics. Unless you account for the left-wing system of common core – which is a complete disaster. If you don’t believe this, sit through a grade school math class or open up your child’s text book. Disaster.
Our whole educational system, from the elementary schools to the universities, is increasingly turning out people who have never heard enough conflicting arguments to develop the skills and discipline required to produce a coherent analysis, based on logic and evidence.— Thomas Sowell (@ThomasSowell) June 7, 2019
The left is genius when you think about it.
Progressives have run academia so far into the ground that students accumulate massive amounts of debt and cannot find work. They then tell the economically struggling students and graduates they are victims of the cruel system of capitalism. In reality, they are victims of the cruel system of academia the left created. They use this economic duress to pitch the debt-ridden students promises of economic equality in the form of socialism.
The left just leaves out the part where the ‘economic equality’ promised means equal poverty.
It is time to hold the left and academia accountable for their blatant propaganda. Not just teachers and schools, but the creators of course materials.
