The Classroom without Reason
Campbell, Douglas G.
Academic Questions, v22 n2 p200-206 Jun 2009
This article presents the author's interesting experiences relating to the ideological indoctrination taking place on college campuses. The author suggests that the philosophical and ethical foundations of both the United States and the modern American university are being undermined by the ideology of collectivism, with its dogmatic hatred of Western civilization and individuality, and, most seriously, its hostility to rational debate. The quintessentially American acceptance of the right of individuals to come to their own educated conclusions, and then to speak and act according to these conclusions and their own conscience, is under siege by collectivist rules and a repressive group mentality. (Contains 2 footnotes.)
