Educational Bankruptcy: Progressive Religious Zeal And The Rise Of Victimhood

Published May 2, 2024

The Daily Wire

Belligerent mobs of elite college students once again occupy campuses across the country. This week, masked coeds at Columbia shattered windows in an academic building, barricaded themselves inside, and hung an intifada flag out the window. Like the pride, BLM, and trans, flags before it, the message was clear: we want a new regime in charge and it’s not the one reflected in the stars and stripes.

The spokesman for the university, Ben Chang, stated that the encampments, vandalism, and occupation “violated numerous University policies.” What these students did not violate, however, is the religious zeal of a progressive agenda that has permeated their education from the cradle to the cap and gown. When the moral mission passed down to you by your educators is to disrupt, destabilize, and make a mess — violating an establishment policy is an opportunity, not an obstacle.

Despite the millions in endowments funding Higher Ed’s hallowed halls, such institutions are in a freefall of utter moral and intellectual bankruptcy. As Warren Buffet once remarked: “You don’t find out who’s been swimming naked until the tide goes out.”

The craven corruption gambling away our future is not new; it is just exposed. Many in education have been running a con. They leveraged our future for their totalizing political scam that dehumanizes those it is meant to educate.
