The closing of the Millennial mind

(Before It's News)

How different would  the western world be today if more people had read The Closing of the American Mind in 1987 when it was published?  Shortly after publication, the Berlin Wall fell and the Cold War was won by the West. Marxism proper had comprehensively failed and Fukuyama naively told us that history was at an end. However in our schools, colleges and universities cultural Marxist enemies remained firmly entrenched, living behind our lines and at our expense.

That treacherous cadre has convinced generations of the luckiest people in the World that they are oppressed. It has turned citizen against citizen on spurious grounds of race, gender and sexual orientation. It has created false contradictions to be resolved by the ever more powerful state it craves. It has sought to enforce by stealth an ideology that has failed everywhere it has been tried.

It has poisoned the wells of our civilisation. All around at present you can hear the robotic, monotonous drone of the journalists, politicians and other opinion formers whose minds it has warped. Ideologically entirely ad idem, its members vie only to divorce their notions ever more widely from reality and to “no platform” anyone sane enough to laugh. Most on “social science” courses would have done better to leave school at eighteen and join the real world than to wallow in this academic mire.

“Drain the swamp” is a fine and noble slogan. The vilest and most difficult swamp to be drained is academia.  It won’t be easy, but unless it is achieved all other efforts are a waste of time.

  • This is such an incisive article, so well-thought-out and indicative of REAL intelligence. Having been exposed to the modern indoctrination centers known as “universities” (on many levels), I can attest to the truthfulness of your claim. However, this is not really discussed so much in the larger world; I encourage you to send your article to everyone you know, and I will do the same. Cheers, and keep up the fine work!!

  • Thanks for the suggestion and as an outsider, to American so called progressivism, just the introduction to – The Closing Of The American Mind – requires one consider the root cause of the hopelessness, disaffection and anger seen in millennials today.

    Who’d a thunk that “openness” is really prejudice, coupled with superiority, in disguise?

    I look forward to reading all about how higher education has failed democracy and impoverished the souls of today’s students, according to Alan Bloom, and recommend it to all thinkers/apologists.
