Public schools? Or socialist indoctrination?

Reader comment on item: Columbia University vs. America

Submitted by Chris Thompson (United States), Apr 2, 2003 at 11:07

Mr. Pipes,
More than fifteen years ago I worked for a west german medical company installing kidneystone lithotripters in North America. The location of strategic choice? Teaching Institutions. Medical Universities. Why? Because, if you get a medical student used to using your equipment during training, he will feel more comfortable using it in the field.

That very philosophy is one facet of what is behind the enemy movement to reside inside the educatioinal superstructure all across this nation. Not only using the public supported infrastructure for fund raising and generally undermining rational thought, but also perverting the simple minds of the mentors (professors) charged with escorting our young through 'higher' education.

Young adults that go to college today should already have strong moral beliefs and values. If they do not, they risk being fooled into supporting, even temporarily, something that could endanger others. On either side.

Colleges and Universities today are a fertile source for the enemies of America to gain sympathy because they aren't taught to think for themselves.
