Knowledge versus College.

Yesterday I attempted to discuss a post with one young lady who disagreed with it. The author was showing how Wisconsin votes were not accurate. The student was not happy with either the author or me.

"Was just told “Relying on knowledge from college is putting a handicap on your learning” actually no! I’ve been exposed to people from all over the world here. I’ve been exposed to people who have family that are immigrants. I know a couple people who’s families were ripped apart at boarders. I know the REAL THINGS that are happening in the world because I’m exposed to so many people from everywhere and so much diversity. I know the things Trump has done to limit rights of MY FRIENDS. Being in college has done nothing but OPEN my mind and realize the terrible things happening. MY FRIENDS are experiencing these things and I SEE IT"

    There is a strange bias against college now in the US. It wasn't like that when I was in school. But, it's been driven by the liberalization of faculty in much of higher education. It has had a negative impact. But, I still bristle at bad generalizations about the universities. It's often conveyed as though everybody attending is a mindless robot. My son is going to a very liberal high school(!) and is really getting a lesson on the liberal mindset. He's seen some really invalid arguments and crazy behavior. I'm starting to think "better now than later". It's really opening his eyes...

    Have you read The Hunger Games?
    These are the faces of the children of war.....philosophical / psychological...and far more damaging than physical conflict. I have this parental instinct to gather them in close to quell the fears.....and at the same time realize the damage may be beyond repair.
