The University Illusion By James Reed
See, it all conforms what I have been saying all long; the universities are not about the pursuit of truth, which would require free speech, but have their own globalist, universalistic agenda. After all, they are not called “universities” for nothing.
“Union College President David R. Harris recently penned an argument against free speech on college campuses, claiming that institutions of higher learning have a responsibility to manage speech by providing “constructive engagement,” so that students can have an optimal learning experience. Union College president David R. Harris penned an op-ed, entitled, “A Campus Is Not the Place for Free Speech,” in which he argues that it is the role of colleges and universities to filter the conversations on campuses to provide “constructive engagement.” “I oppose free speech on college campuses,” states Harris in his op-ed, adding that “it is not because I think college campuses should be safe havens from voices on the left and right that violate what I have learned and what I believe,” but that it is “the mission of a higher education institution” to provide students with the appropriate information and context. The college president had written his op-ed in response to President Donald Trump’s recent executive order requiring colleges and universities to uphold the First Amendment on campus in order to continue receiving federal research funding. “Many of the president’s supporters have applauded his free speech decision,” states Harris, “because they argue that higher education institutions trumpet liberal perspectives and silence conservative voices.” Harris adds that members of academia believe “the president and his supporters do not understand what actually happens on college campuses.”
President Trump should keep to at least something that he has promised and begin by slashing funding to such institutions. See how tough they are then. Sometimes the best way of controlling parasites is by controlling the food supply.
