It is only human to get excited when others, bigger and better than oneself, embrace an idea that one has been shouting about for at least a decade. This is the need for the West to shut down its universities and radically restructure the higher education sector away from politically correct bs, and to embrace STEM and technological developments, with a direct focus upon job creation. In any case, here is the position of Professor Jason Hill, author of We Have Overcome: An Immigrant’s Letter to the American People, (Bombardier Books, 2018):
“TUCKER CARLSON: Jason Hill is a professor of philosophy at DePaul University, but if we follow his advice he could soon be unemployed he just published a remarkable piece in The Hill newspaper saying that universities —and he’s worked in them for a long time — have become so overwhelmed by identity politics, socialism, anti-Americanism and dumbness that essentially they’re beyond saving. He suggests that taxpayers and private donors pull funding and let the whole system collapse for the betterment of the country. Professor Hill is also the author of the book We Have Overcome which I have not read but plan to because his piece is literally that good. . . PROFESSOR JASON HILL: I think these Bolshevik-loving welfare scholars have basically hijacked the system and are indoctrinating our students with not just anti-American invective's, but against the very core values that form our republic — capitalism, free speech, the morality of wealth creation.”
The following is from Professor Hill’s own article attacking the universities, which says what I have been saying for a long time:
“Today, after 22 years of being a college professor, and having traveled much of America to lecture, I am sad to say the situation is not the same. The core principles and foundations that keep the United States intact, that provide our citizens with their civic personalities and national identities, are being annihilated. The gravest internal threat to this country is not illegal aliens; it is leftist professors who are waging a war against America and teaching our young people to hate this country. Our universities risk losing their status as learning sites and becoming national security threats. We need to defund them, disband and rebuild them with conservative principles — that is, values advocating individualism, capitalism, Americanism, free speech, self-reliance and the morality of wealth creation.
When the term “Western civilization” is equated with racism, cultural superiority and pervasive oppression, and students in my political philosophy class refuse to study the works of John Stuart Mill or John Locke (or any other white thinker) because they consider them white supremacists, there is no lower level of educational hell. The manifest destiny of the humanities and social science professoriat is to have politicized knowledge supersede truth, objectivity, facts and genuine learning. Ordinarily, the best way to counter an intellectual adversary is through a contest of rational faculties. The person with reality on his or her side, with the best relevant facts and strongest arguments, usually wins. But today’s scholars in humanities and social sciences increasingly declare that modern argumentation is a white, Western form of domination and linguistic imperialism that silences racial and ethnic minorities and devalues their “lived experiences.”
One cannot argue with such people. The only alternative is to shut them down … Withdraw your support and leave them to fund themselves. Let them pit their wares on the free market, where they will be left homeless. The world you desired no longer exists in our universities. It lies elsewhere, in a philosophic system waiting to be discovered or created.”
The cultural Marxists and globalists do not respond to reasoned argument, nor give their opponents intellectual fairness, thus transforming the universities into “hate machines.” So, fire must be fought with return fire, and there is no better way to fight a fire than to starve it of oxygen, the air of funding. We do not need further university mergers, we need devolution and shut downs.
