I’ve read Dinesh D’Sousa, Thomas Sowell, Shelby Steele, Steven Pinker, Christina Hoff-Sommers, Ta-Nehisi Coates. I’ve watched William F. Buckley and found his show FASCINATING. I’ve checked out Ayn Rand, Gloria Steinem, Milton Friedman and people like Milo Yiannopoulos.
I take in as much information as I can to have a well informed opinion. There are several other thinkers who I vehemently disagree with, but I’m willing to listen to. I might actually learn something new.
This kind of stuff that currently exists on college campuses is reprehensible. It’s like going to a gym with al kinds of equipment, classes and nutrition info only to use the treadmill for four years straight and eating fast food every day. You’ll never get fit. Your body needs to be challenged as craves variety.
The same applies to your intellectual fitness. Challenge your mind to think. It ain’t illegal yet. These kids are doing themselves a disservice.
My kids are NOT going to any school like this. Not gonna happen. If they do, they will be the ones being a thorn in the side of these kinds of people who choose to be cut off from different ways of thinking.
I’ve already trained them to think critically and see several points of view.
It might be time to read this guy’s stuff. I heard about the Bell Curve years ago but haven’t read it. I may hate it all but at least I will know how to counter his arguments.
College is an expensive joke nowwadays. Go right from high school into the thing you love to do. Save your money!
