Generally speaking, a sentiment I certainly agree with. There are some exceptions, of course.  A handful of still respectably Catholic colleges, for one.  But overall, as the article below states (and as Professor Jordan Peterson now makes a regular part of his talks), college as a whole, as an institution, has become an ideologically stultified, racist, misandric, destructive influence on the souls who matriculate therein and the culture at large.

College attendance is plummeting due to high costs, poor product, and such extreme levels of leftist radicalism and anti-white/anti-male prejudice as to be unbelievable.  So, for the most part, I agree………let ’em die:

At a symposium in May, Harvard Business School professor Clayton Christensen predicted that “50 percent of the 4,000 colleges and universities in the U.S. will be bankrupt in 10 to 15 years.”

Christensen appears to be onto something. The number of students enrolled in American colleges and universities has dropped every year for the past five years. In 2016, the majority of private and public American colleges failed to meet their enrollment and tuition targets.

This is possibly the best news I’ve heard all year. And not because I’m against learning or education—it’s because American colleges no longer teach people how to think; they command people what to think, with the constant looming Sword of Damocles hanging over the head of anyone foolish enough to express a dissident thought.

American colleges are no longer institutions of higher learning. It would be more apt to refer to them as state-sanctioned seminaries for the secular religion of Cultural Marxism. Instead of strolling out of college with nimbler minds, students now stumble out into the real world with their brains scrubbed clean of the ability to hatch a single independent thought.

And as they enter a hostile job market with their useless Master’s Degrees in Postmodern Gender Modalities Among Hamsters, your average hapless college grad is saddled with a life-crippling average debt of nearly $40K to banksters who finance all this brainwashing. Student debt in America is currently close to $1.5 trillion—nearly twice as much as all credit-card debt combined………

………Rather than being instructed in crucial matters—such as how to detect logical fallacies and distinguish between what’s objective and subjective [or 3-D solid modeling/beam theory!]—modern students indenture themselves to the loan-peddlers for the dubious honor of taking inane courses such as “Kanye Versus Everbody! [sic],” “Sci-Fi Queered,” “What If Harry Potter Is Real?,” and “How to Watch Television.”

While piously posing as staunchly anti-racist—whatever the hell that means, because it can’t be quantified—students are instead encouraged to channel all of their latent racial hatred toward the very idea of white people. [Dang right.  College campuses today are the most endemically racist, bigoted enclaves in the nation.  Largely white children are taught to hate themselves, and that the only way to demonstrate they have overcome their innate “white deviltry” is by refusing to reproduce and offing themselves]

This is why a Hispanic college professor received no reprimands for expressing this gleefully genocidal sentiment:

We have an aging white America. They are not making babies. They are dying. It’s a matter of time. [laughter] The explosion is in our population. [Not through reproduction.  Only through immigration invasion.  Hispanic birth rates are only slightly above replacement rate.  And some of us evil whiteys have had 6 or 8 or 18 kids. So suck on that, racist.]

Neither was an Indian female professor at the University of Michigan given even a mild slap on the wrist for writing an essay about “White Moral Blindness.”

It’s why no faculty members were disciplined in 2015 when a white student at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst was denied entry from a “Stop White People” luncheon on campus.

It’s why a black sociology professor at Trinity College was not fired for writing on Facebook that it’s time to “confront” white people:

I’m fed up with self-identified ‘white’s’ daily violence[“violence” = holding beliefs I find offensive. That’s “violence.” And what does a population do when it convinces itself it is constantly under physically violent attack, which these delusional leftists do constantly?  They feel wholly justified in their hatred of their persecutors, and lashing out violently at them.  But they’ve received no actual violence.] directed at immigrants, Muslims, and sexually and racially opressed [sic] people. The time is now to confront these inhuman assholes and end this now.

It’s why a black female sociologist became a professor at Boston University after tagging white college males as “a problem population”:

white masculinity is THE problem for america’s colleges. 

why is white america so reluctant to identify white college males as a problem population?

Bigotry is ugly no matter the color of the person saying it.  But get this, this professor would surely absolve herself of being “racist,” because the white-hating Left has defined “racism” as being strictly the province of whites.  That’s right, only the devil white man can ever be “racist.”  This is supposedly because only the white devil man has “institutional power,” which critique I find rather ironic coming from college professors, students, and administrative hierarchies increasingly dominated by non-whites.

As the author of the above noted in a portion I did not excerpt, the percentage of white men on campus has fallen drastically over the past 25 years.  In fact, the disappearance of young white men from the campuses on which they are so manifestly made to feel unwelcome is probably THE dominant factor in the collapse in college attendance nationwide.

Thus it would be quite ironic if these hateful racist professors and administrators lost their (largely) useless but oh-so-cozy sinecures as a direct result of their own radically racist leftism.

A final thought – see the hatred endemic in Leftism, which is endemic in rejection of God.  Rejection of Jesus Christ in the West largely started in, and has been sustained by, the academy.  The whole rotten structure needs to die.

My wife and kids were in the first one last year.  I’m sure they’ll be there again for this 3 mile pilgrimage across Irving to the campus of the University of Dallas:

Do call Julie if you can help with shuttle driving.  Bring your Marian flags, your banners, make this a work of witness!  i cannot attend, I will be at work and am using my last unused vacation day for the Immaculate Conception.

I’ve been intending to return this blog’s focus to the Dallas Diocese, more as it was in the beginning as I head toward the 8th anniversary of these little rants of mine, so here is another list of the many upcoming events this December at Mater Dei FSSP parish:

Since the Feast of the Immaculate Conception falls on a Friday and is a 1st Class Feast, eating meat is allowed, yes?
