Please read my book as a call for revolution and not just another critique of academia. We have to get on those campuses we pay for and hammer some theses on the doors of the established religion of Political Correctness right in on its home turf.
Any of us can do it and I’m here to help out.
SF Book Discussion II – Why Johnny Can’t Think … Robert W. Whitaker
I am here in Eastern Europe running my usual introductory fever, I always got sick in Latin America, Africa, Asia, you name it.
But I make as much sense when I’m sick as I do when I’m well.
As I said before, if you read Joe Sobran’s Foreword and my first chapter you will discover that for me today’s professors are just one more version of the same old thing. Neocons are professors or wannabe professors, so they talk about professors with respect.
But as the Internet grows, we are going to have a generation that has none of the respect and deference professors depend on.
In earlier days, you had to go to the college library. But you can get all that on the Internet. We are exactly in the position of the literate European middle class when the day of Gutenberg dawned, and the Bible was no longer the monopoly of the clerics.
Can anybody expand on this or just make some random points about it?
The bottom line is that faculties can no longer claim to be special. They can not say that we peasants have the right to come on our own campuses and debate them with their permission.
It is time for us to invade them on their home ground.
