Criticize Colleges in America and So Now I’m ‘Dangerous’?

Barb Wire

A reader has just informed me that my NWV column this week, on “College–the Brain Masher,” has been tagged by Google with an “ALL RED Dangerous Web Page Warning.” I don’t see that when I go to the NWV page, so I’d be interested to know whether any of you have seen it. But certainly I have no reason not to believe the reader.

So… I said America’s university system needs to be shrunk, not expanded, and that our colleges indoctrinate their students with left-wing piffle and addle their brains–and that’s supposed to be dangerous? Hey, I went to college and it threw me off the track for more than thirty years: and it wasn’t anywhere near as awful, back then.

It seems I have become a menace to society. I guess Joe Collidge is right about me. I suppose I ought to be proud of having earned this distinction; but, in fact, it doesn’t give me all that nice a feeling. All I’m doing is calling it like I see it. That’s dangerous?

Oh, well, at least I’m in good company.

No, Google, it’s not this unimportant blogger who’s dangerous. It’s our college system that is dangerous. But I suppose you’ll want to live in the world these confused young people make, when it’s their turn to take over from the grownups: very probably because you and your cohorts expect to rule that world.

I would rather not see that happen.
