We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Not to worry. It's an adolescent fashion, a fad. It will pass. These kids will graduate, find jobs in cubicles, enter the real world, and grow up. Not to mention that the "tenured radicals" will retire on the comfortable pensions provided by people with tough jobs without pensions.
Worry. The graduates will converge all the companies they work for, the the professors have already brain-washed their replacements. Professors do the actual vetting and hiring of faculty, in case you didn't know. It is the privilege they most defend.
If only. Let me know when the struggle sessions last for hours using the tortuous airplane position, those struggled against are sent down for thought reform through labor, many are imprisoned, and many are publicly executed in university stadiums... and eaten.
Agree with Sykes, worry. This may be a fad but it's toxic. Young people are being brainwashed and no longer see any reason to value the free speech of folks who don't agree with them. Also, reasonable, very nice, sexually modest young women take a Talmudic approach to Aziz Ansari's ability to read body language - while the young woman is in his house consensually stark naked. No, real damage is being done and it's not clear to me how it will be repaired - if we have enough cultural resources.
