The Educated Youth
Paul Craig Roberts
Look At These Idiots. Where do they come from? From the Universities.
When I was a university student, the liberals’ motto was a quote attributed to Voltaire: “I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.” The liberals used this quote as permission to deconstruct the family, society, religion, and the belief system that held the diverse American population together.
Today liberals want to silence and even to arrest everyone who disagrees with them. Social media deplatform and cancel all who step outside official explanations, even experts, members of Congress, and the President of the United States. Amazon, Apple, and Google force alternative social media out of existence by denying service. Americans lose their jobs for being Trump supporters and even for using gender pronouns unapproved by woke idiots. We have arrived at the point in university life that an ignorant quota admission “student” has more authority than a distinguished scholar or scientist and can get the scientist or distinguished scholar investigated and sanctioned by his own university. A total non-entity can cancel a person of lifetime accomplishments simply on the grounds that the non-entity is “offended.”
This is the Western world today. Who is left to defend it? To die for it? And what is it? The values are gone. The belief system is dissolved. Propaganda focuses us on Russians, Chinese, and Iranians. The real threats to our existence are in charge of our life. We live in the Matrix of their self-serving lies.
Clear evidence that liberals have created a new Dark Age is the demand of Harvard students that the university revoke the degrees of Trump supporters. All reason has departed university life. Reason is replaced with blind hate. Emotion rules. Truth-tellers are “enemies of the people.”
