Fallacy of High Expectations of Higher Education

Reader comment on item: The Future of U.S. Higher Education

Loss of Intelligence in the Intelligentsia - Faux Intellectualism Running Amok.

If there is any conclusion to be drawn about the validity of seeking higher education in these United States, this article should be used as the main course curriculum, supplanting that psychological Yale course on-line and in line with the more brazen and insidious mind games that are surreptitiously undermining the one-time advantages of an education under liberty. Sadly, American education is on the ropes and any attempts to revive, or to resurrect it are doomed to fail, for one specific reason; and only one that is apropos to the issues at hand.

This observer was initially on track to obtain a technical higher education in either engineering with emphasis in architecture, falling back on material sciences, but unable to get through any of it while being sidelined and told to focus on liberal and sociological arts until sometime later. This never occurred; patience grew thin and the program jettisoned with little appreciation for the barely constrained elitist attitude in trying to form this student into an elitist protégé. That was fifty years ago. Now, this observer considers that episode precognitively fortuitous, especially since the education of the previous 12 grades in the California system did its job, which was sufficient for the next fifty years.

Dr. Pipes has significantly demonstrated why.

But in a more sinister application of logic as to why these issues of infiltration of the education processes are now engaging in a war with the ideological foundations of American liberties and freedoms, what needs to be considered in all aspects is that the infiltration has the intellectual carcinoma of the American higher educational system running the institutional framework in the secularist leftists scheme of things. Compromise from those sworn to protect the American way allowed arrogant avarice and access to the largesse that is the economic engine of the middle-class taxpayer, spending it for reasons other than what could be considered legal. This includes diverting it to compromise and defeat the American educational system; and killing the American way.

Before the American institutions of liberties can be reformed to return America to a position of moral application of politics (the very moral basis that Russian Leader Putin now chides), this system needs to be reclaimed and its original fundamentals of the framework once taught in the institutions of higher learning (before losing to the loss of truth), brought back to life.

Otherwise, death to it all is all but guaranteed.
