Issue Monday with Dr Birzer, the Token Conservative at CU Boulder

MUST THE LEFT DOMINATE ON CAMPUS?


They do right now, but it's a uniform Left Wing mush that everyone conforms to. A severe "Group Think" has set in, stifling real learning and critical thinking.


In 1955, Russell Kirk resigned a tenured position from Michigan State University in protest of what he called the "Mega University".  He questioned how any learning can take place in classes of 150 or more, where the professor merely tells people what to think and the students regurgitate it at finals time and forget it, moving on to the next subject.  It made the national news at the time. Kirk's action violated the tacit agreement between the faculty and their university of "we give you tenure and you don't criticize us".
