    Nicely written! I hope the Boghossians of the nations universities get the last laugh. However, it's looking like they are being sent to Orwell's room 101 for a while.

    I have said for some time now that Higher Education no longer teaches people HOW to think. But, WHAT to think. It is a complete waste of a human mind and resources to send anyone there.

    First, these are great comments. I like the ones that are conceptual, and I value the ones that are anecdotal. May I plug? This is exactly the theme and subject of my new novel, "Retaking College Hill," publication date September 30. An improbable group of heroes, at an Ivy League University (modeled on my alma mater, Brown), takes on all the forces that attacked Boghossian, but the stakes become much higher. In the end, the question is what would represent "deliverance" to the contemporary American university. And can the protagonists make it happen? Of course, there are all the elements of a thriller and a Romantic novel. Objectivism, of course, comes into the picture. Anyone who wishes to read an advance copy and post a brief review (at least three sentences) on Amazon after September 30. Just send me your email address at WDonway@Gmail.com. About 30 reviewers have joined the attempt--I admit, far fetched--to break through the cultural barrier so faculty, students, and others HAVE to respond. Yes, a long shot--but longer and longer as people say, "ah, no way." A LOT is being done.

    Butting intellectual heads with a 20 year old relative who waves her student status like a red flag at a bull is an exercise in futility. It took very little time to understand that discussion wasn't her desire, but instead, the destruction of my opinions regardless of facts. She is the near cousin of Cuffy Meigs. Our next lot of "students" to be released upon this world will indeed be true brothers and sisters of Mr. Meigs.

    ThanQ Walter for your always well written work :)
    I had to laugh at the brilliance of his expose’ proving the insanity the Pomo homo crowd exhibits.
    The professor well-known for his series of academic papers, with colleagues, submitted as a hoax to peer-reviewed publications in gender studies and other postmodernist journals. Most notorious perhaps is a paper that passed academic peer-review to be published as “The Conceptual Penis as a Social Construct.” His goal, said Boghossian, was to “demonstrate that morally fashionable papers—no matter how absurd, could be published.”
