The Cesspool of Academia: Take Back Your Education, Advice From a Marginal Sociologist

2 Comments

I finally used he term “left-wing cesspool” in response to an academic assignment and, I must say, it feels like a burden has been lifted off my back. This is because most of my colleague have come to believe that they are superior to their fellow citizens; in their minds it is only the college “educated” class that deserves respect. To me, this is absurd. Interestingly enough, country music artist Brad Paisley’s “Country Nation”  provides a great example how, regardless of our education, we are all part of American society (especially due to identification with the university’s sports teams). Academics are not superior to the people they study; they are the people. What makes a person is their respect—their humanity—and those are qualities that are not tied to one’s level of education; that’s what Mr. Paisley implies in his song and it is something we would do well to keep in mind.

After reading a horrid racist tirade written by Eduardo Bonilla Silva and a few indoctrinated graduate students—disguised as academic work work—I second what I remarked earlier, the fact that Mr. Bonilla Silva is the head of the American Sociological Association is an insult to me. Additionally, I realized that we—as citizens and sociologists—must do to things to resist the fascistic spread of identity politics:

  1. We must TAKE BACK OUR NATIONS
  2. We must TAKE BACK OUR EDUCATIONS

The concretization of ethnicity as a result of identity politics has driven us apart; the pinnacle of this process was seen when the great-nephew of former U.S. President John F. Kennedy, Joe Kennedy, chose to respond to the President’s State of the Union address in Spanish at times.

In any other country a politician campaigning in a language other than that of the majority would be an issue; you do not see the President of Norway speaking, for instance, Mongolian. Yet it is the same absurd logic that encourages the building of a mosque at ground zero in New York; it is globalist logic. It is this logic within academia that uses the indoctrination to train the wealthy classes from foreign countries who come to study in the United States so that they return to their countries and inject the poisonous logic of identity politics into their societies (In Turkey, I have often seen Western-Educated students return to Turkey with heightened sensitivities to “identity politics” which tend to influence their voting). Again, this is part and parcel of the globalist logic—divide and conquer. From now on, students should be aware that it is not their skin color—or language they speak at home—that defines one’s success in life; rather it is their ability to stand up to the globalist education system that looks to divide more than it looks to unite. Despite what the globalist media’s interpretation of Merle Haggard’s classic “Are the Good Times Really Over” says, we must recognize that “progress” has meant diminishing returns for many and that it is only by coming together that we can live in harmony. In Mr. Haggard’s terms, we should want our Fords and Chevys to last for more than ten years just like we should stand up for our flags . . . and our education, which too many are willing to fall into debt for. If you’re willing pay for it, you should take it back and rescue it from the cesspool.

Back To School: The State of Education in the “Modern” World Is Poor…and Getting Poorer

1 Comment

Every fall students around the world get ready for the new school year by purchasing clothes and notebooks. In theory, these students will embark on a nine-month journey of learning, free to pursue topics in a diverse array of subjects. In reality, education is quickly becoming a form of indoctrination, designed to support those in power (If you don’t believe me, just read Michel Foucault’s work on the intimate linkage between knowledge and power: knowledge itself is an exercise of power).

As the school year opens, new divisions in societies around the world are popping up as Catalans in Spain move towards an October 1, 2017 vote on Independence and Iraqi Kurds vote on increased separation from Baghdad’s central government September 25, 2017. How have we gotten to the point where more and more societies are fractioning into smaller and smaller entities? Perhaps one reason is that people have been taught to hate their own countries and instead support the visions of one globalist society, the “global village”. Personally I recall learning about Kenyan society in third grade instead of American history; the seed of this kind of “multicultural” education was planted long ago in order to engineer society into one which undermines the foundations of the nation-state.

Meanwhile in Turkey, the government is using education in the same way, as a tool to socially engineer Turkish society with the aim of creating a more pious generation. School children will now be learning about jihad—instead of evolution—while also learning that women and men have separate roles. In fact, the entire Turkish education system is in flux as the state struggles to solidify its vision for education. In Saudi Arabia, an image of Yoda has—somehow—snuck into a state approved textbook, suggesting that someone knows just how powerful education is in shaping the minds of young children. It also shows how powerful education can be: A young student could erroneously believe that Yoda did indeed sit with King Faisal! It is a shame that education is being used for social engineering rather than for the development of free and independent thought because without proper education—and free and independent thought—the world is headed down a dark path.

As I noted earlier, the use of education for social engineering is hardly unique to authoritarian “Middle Eastern” regimes; it is present in the United States as well. Every child’s favorite crayon brand, Crayolla, introduced a new color for the new school year and not everyone is happy. The name of the new blue—which replaces the yellow “dandelion”—is “bluetiful”. While proponents of the non-word say it encourages “creativity”, I have to say that I do not agree. By encouraging young children to use non-words—which also are confusing, given that “beautiful” is a difficult word to spell in and of itself—Crayolla is aiding and abetting the creation of a poorly educated generation. Text messaging and instant messaging have already wreaked havoc on the spelling capabilities of many Americans, and this just furthers an unfortunate trend.

Professional basketball star Lebron James offers proof of just how poorly educated Americans have become. In responding to President Trump’s call to “fire” NFL players who disrespect the American national anthem by kneeling, Mr. James Tweeted “U bum @StephenCurry30 already said he ain’t going! So therefore ain’t no invite. Going to White House was a great honor until you showed up!” Regardless of Twitter’s 140 character limit, Mr. James’ Tweet represents a bizarre butchering of the English language. There is a misspelling (“U”), grammatically incorrect words (ain’t), and a double negative (ain’t no invite). There is even an insult (bum) to not only the President, but the thousands of homeless Americans who—I am sure—Mr. James cares about. In short, this is not the kind of English I would expect from a thirty-two year old American man! Of course, the media jumped on Mr. James’ Tweet and gleefully reported that this Tweet was more popular than any of President Donald Trump’s Tweets have been. It is not surprising that so many should love this poorly written Tweet; it shows just how low American media will stoop in trying to reach the lowest common denominator.

Personally, I believe that the protests against the national anthem are wrong even if Mr. James finds protesting the protests to be “divisive”. I would argue that the protests themselves divided Americans long before Mr. Trump was even on the scene, and readers know that I have written about divisions in American society in the past. Unfortunately, state media continues to assault nationalist ideas while—at the same time—supporting sports figures who do not care for their countries. ESPN ran a video of Turkish NBA star Enes Kanter, who says that the Oklahoma City Thunder, and the city of Oklahoma, will always be in his heart because “When I [he] lost my family and when I [he] lost my home, you guys gave me family and you guys gave me home”. What ESPN neglects to write in either of their stories (including the one regarding his loss of Turkish citizenship), is that Mr. Kanter supports the globalist Islamic cleric Fethullah Gulen, who Turkey blames for the botched coup in July 2016. That American media should be so sympathetic to a man who openly supports a shadowy religious leader that supported a coup which killed over 200 people is an insult to readers, but it is part and parcel of a bigger plan: destroy the nation state and delegitimize all who support the nation state in order to create a globalist world system. By continually educating ourselves, independent of major news media, we can avoid falling for the traps of division.
