Universities are a breeding ground for ignorance and stupidity especially when it comes to understanding sovereignty. This recent posting from a feminist pleading the student body to give up freedom for her form of justice reflects how dumb Americans have become in the places of learning.
A Harvard University feminist student writing in the campus newspaperThe Crimson recently posited this:
“If our university community opposes racism, sexism, and heterosexism, why should we put up with research that counters our goals simply in the name of “academic freedom”?
The column was titled “The Doctrine of Academic Freedom – Let’s Give Up On Academic Freedom in Favor of Justice.”
Its author, senior Sandra Y.L. Korn, a joint history of science and studies of women, gender and sexuality major, called for the end of academic freedom and in its place “a more rigorous standard: one of ‘academic justice.’”
“When an academic community observes research promoting or justifying oppression, it should ensure that this research does not continue,” she wrote. “The power to enforce academic justice comes from students, faculty, and workers organizing together to make our universities look as we want them to do.”
Raise your hand if you agree that giving up your sovereignty for the whole is a good idea. It always strikes me as shortsighted when I hear people want to go all in for socialism over freedom. They never seem to realize that their ideals of justice is decided by the small group of people in power making up the rules. That group in power may not always agree with this young lady’s beliefs, and when the tides turn out of her favor, she cannot take back the freedom she sacrificed for her own laziness and fear.
