Professors Make It Their Business to Know

Reader comment on item: Profs Who Hate America

Submitted by Empathy (United States), Oct 28, 2006 at 20:30

The US has created its universities not only to educate its youth but to have centers of expertise. These experts investigate many possible truths and report back to the rest of the world through books, articles, class discussions or some public forums. When these professors tell us things about ourselves that we do not want to accept we call them names, "leftists," "commies," "haters."

However, we should give them credit for having the courage to stand up and tell a difficult truth to a blind public. I would love for Americans to live up its rhetoric of freedom. We can only do this if we can listen to the hard truth.
