Jordan Peterson explains what a sham much of higher education today is:
The Left poisons everything it touches. Higher education is largely in the hands of a cult that substitutes indoctrination for education, and hates traditional Western Civilization. Race and sex obsessions rank at the head of what is transmitted to youth at great expense under the guise of education. Thus our colleges and universities produce graduates who know little about the subjects they were purportedly being taught, but who are experts on Leftist grievances and a view of the world that bears little resemblance to reality. A German radical, the late Alfred Willi Rudolf “Rudi” Dutschke, came up with the plan of a long march by the Left through the institutions they wished to control, and so it has come to pass. Leftists are almost always Leftists first. Everything else takes a back seat to the political prism through which they view the world. Leftism is an aggressive substitute religion, highly dogmatic and intolerant. David Burge, Iowahawk, has summarized the usual mode of operation of the Left:
1. Identify a respected institution.
2. kill it.
3. gut it.
4. wear its carcass as a skin suit, while demanding respect.
Leftism is a deadly enemy of freedom. No truck or truce with it.
