The colleges, what’s left of them, appear to be dying. Jim Goad has the good news at Taki’s Mag – in typical, hilarious Taki style.
“The only intelligent thing to do with modern American colleges is to get rid of them.”
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.
A world of useful, free alternatives? Or $40,000+ per year for a piece of paper and some socialist dogma? And the dogma is also available for free on FB and Twitter. Hmmm…
