Ignorant because the Frankfurt School Marxists infiltrated the educational system. And worse yet, college profs like Eric Clanton are braining people with bicycle locks on the street.

Let's see we've name-checked JCP, Joe Rogan, Dave Rubin. I think (as an anarcho-libertarian) that left/center/right spectrum could be represented by Sargon of Akkaad, Tm Pool, and Black Pigeon Speaks, respectively. That's about my Overton Window for diversity of opinion.

That's basically what I was driving at by my unqualified comment. University is where diversity of thought goes to die these days. If you want to understand things exactly like others and learn the same things as millions of others, sign up for undergrad classes.

Stupid ideas shouldn't be tolerated, they should be fought with more sophisticated ideas. More sophisticated and/or differing ideas shouldn't be classified as hate speech and banned.

I thought my community college experience was mostly a joke 10+ years ago, but I imagine it's even worse today. My last philosophy professor culminated everything with Marxism as the pinnacle of modern thought. Rather than submit my final paper, I should have done nothing and then demanded that the effort of the class be distributed evenly among the students. Equality of outcome!

Somehow, very apropos.

I'm an ex-college instructor and hope that none of MY students came away from my classes thinking as you do.

L.P.N. is one year, R.N. is two, B.S.N is four, and M.S.N. is too much work for most nurses.

Again, the difference between a Bachelor's of Sciences and one of Arts is a job.
