How I’d Handle The Crazies At Nutball U.

Yesterday’s Tom Woods Letter, which all the influential people receive every weekday. Be one of them.

Meanwhile, as Donald Trump morphs into Jeb Bush and Hillary Clinton before our eyes, the campuses are as loopy as ever.

CampusReform.org reports that students at Salem College have presented the administration with an “ultimatum” regarding the intolerable atmosphere of oppression that exists on campus.

This is how they characterize life under a typical left-leaning college administration.

“Pay attention,” the ultimatum reads. “It’s past time you take steps to implement the rights, policies, and demands necessary to alleviate the inequity and discrimination that permeate every facet of Salem College.”

I’m sure “inequity and discrimination” permeate “every facet” of the college. That sounds like something a reasonable person (as opposed to a hysteric) would say, doesn’t it?

One demand is that transgender students who “identify” as women be admitted to the all-female college.

Another is that the faculty undergo mandatory “diversity training” every year, which means: regurgitate a serious of dubious leftist propositions as if no other opinion could exist. For anyone who disagrees with us is an oppressor!

You can read the whole ten-page statement if you want to gouge your eyes out.

The college’s president and vice president issued a statement that read, in part, “We care deeply about our students, and we acknowledge the importance of the concerns that they have raised. We commit to working with students, faculty, staff, administration, and the boards in order to respond to the call to action.”

Other statements were forthcoming from the college; all of them spoke in solemn tones about the grave importance of the issues raised by the students.

My response would have been:

Salem College is always happy to entertain suggestions for improvement. But if you can honestly look around our campus and see nothing but inequity and oppression, here is the door.

Cambodia's Deadly Experiment

In the 1950s, students started gathering in Paris. They were reading Karl Marx. They were forming book clubs. They were trying to come up with a better version of society. One that moved away from the division of labor. One that moved away from the capitalism in the big cities that they so despised. ... One of those students would change his name to Pol Pot. He and his colleagues formed a new political party, a takeover in Cambodia. They called themsevles the Khmer Rouge. ... Under Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge, one out of four people in that country died in less than four years.
