On burning down the colleges, the Harvard Black Mass, and more

  • From Radix: Burn down the colleges. Not in the dumb Sixties sense but decrying the debasement of real higher education. Glad to see that I wasn't the only one who thought regarding "Noah goes to college," like a similar older man getting to become an Eagle Scout, that this isn't what making Eagle Scout or going to college are for. Handing out an award because of pity devalues the award for those who earned it.
  • From Takimag: Pick your demons, or why I didn't get worked up about the Harvard Black Mass. No, I'm not agreeing with Kathy Shaidle's swipe at celibacy. It's not a hill I'm willing to die on but I don't hate it either.
  • From Theden: Another 171 million people who don't care what progressives think. India.

    We could actually do some real damage to the Cathedral just by making student loans dischargeable in bankruptcy. But nobody is even discussing that, which tells you that what Paul Gottfried calls the "movement conservatives" are a useless if not positively destructive false opposition. The only thing they are "conserving" is early-20th century American Progressivism.
