For we have conquered the academy. We have conquered the primary/secondary educational apparatus in the west. And our now-liberalized media helps reinforce the world-view injected into the "bold, free thinkers" we graduate from the ideological mould-presses that are our modern retail educational outlets. We have got them thinking instead of feeling. We have them fighting battles that were won or lost decades ago. But mostly - and I think this, above all - we have relieved them of the burden of personal responsibility. Instead, they now come equipped with a sense of boundless entitlement, all the better prepared to ask not what they can do for their country, but what their country must do for them. By setting the boundaries of entitlement ever further afield, by working to proscribe acceptable language, curtail debate and provide safe spaces wherein individuals can be shielded from worldviews different from our own, we ensure that our project of fragmenting society and atomizing it into warring grievance groups continues apace. Any voices raised against this must be quashed. That is why it is more important than ever to attack our ideological enemies. Enemies like Dr. Jordan Peterson ...
I had not heard of Nathan J Robinson before he published his attention seeking article that he titled The Intellectual We Deserve as a political attack on Canadian author and psychologist, Professor Jordan Peterson. I quickly googled Robinson and found that he had attempted a similar smear against Ben Shapiro. I don't want to spend too much time on this, as both Peterson and Shapiro are completely capable of taking care of themselves. I would, however, like to point out a few intellectual deficiencies that Robinson should correct if he wishes to be taken seriously.
Those who enjoyed Cathy Newman's recent interview of Jordan Peterson are on solid ground and need not listen to any of the whining that has followed the exchange. The interview was everything that it should have been and this was due to the fact that two very assertive and competent personalities were on full display
I cannot be the only one who spent decades carrying the false assumption that a PhD carried with it an earned air of authority and intellectual superiority. And, I cannot be the only one who now thinks that all that a PhD really suggests is that the possessor simply hung around school for way too long. The result of this extended loitering on the taxpayer's dime appears to be that the student is eventually transformed back into an infant, just at the point when they should be heading out into the world to contribute something of value to the economy. Now when I see the PhD designation attached to an article, or some far-left propaganda, I wonder two things: What kind of hysterical bullshit is about to follow? And, how much has this extended childhood cost the taxpayer?
