The liberal College
There was something to be said about a great college debate. Where students would get into an intellectual dual in a formal debate over a particular topic. In today’s world there are less professors that are encouraging debate. Free speech in schools is not welcome in most colleges, especially if they are viewed as conservative. Colleges throughout have employed more liberal professors, than conservative ones. The statistic as of today is that there are 12 to 1 liberal professors than that of conservative. The schools have practically ban free thinking, and alienated anybody who thinks differently than they do. When a student wishes to express their conservative, or religious views student activists, along side faculty support the actions of protective speech, trigger warnings, and advise offended students to get to the safe spaces that they have created. It is nearly impossible for any student to speak freely on their conservative political views without being ridiculed by these professors, forcing students to hide their views. Students are trained to believe that political conservatism is racist, intolerant, sexist, and homophobic. The true point of college is to give a student higher education, and give you multiple viewpoints to expand your mind, and not just be stuck comfortably in your own bubble. When a free thinker gets thrown into a crowd of liberals, and starts speaking of his conservative views on politics these students instantly get defensive, and will tell the other student that he is wrong, regardless of the facts. This along side the medias influence has strongly had a negative effect on the academic future of our children, and that influence will show in the years to come.
