Pretty good take, IMO. Universities can absolutely suffer from the same echo chamber effect as anything else.

But still, gmafb with this:

Given that treating only symptoms is ultimately pointless, is there any cure for the disease? The radical left won’t voluntarily give up the stranglehold on higher education that it has worked unrelentingly to gain.

Academia is not closed to conservatives. Put in the work and get the degrees if you want.

I'm sure it is just a coincidence that the exponential increase in the cost of higher education is strongly correlated to the exponentially increasing disparity in ideology.

Hey, recent grads! You're libtard tenured prof who "isn't doing it for the miney" is only doing it for the money.

Libtard altruism, the greatest misnomer of them all.

That's not why higher education costs more.

Probably has more to do with the fact that it’s so easy to get education loans and they’re not completely discharged in bankruptcy.

Higher Education is the new Payday Loan/2007 mortgage provider.

Exactly. More money is available. Unis increase the cost to get in the door.

I am legitimately shocked every time professors and students at a rough ridin' University try to stop someone from expressing their opinion (which appears to be shared by millions of people).  Ever-y time.

This is a great article on the subject:

https://mobile.nytimes.com/2018/03/07/opinion/were-all-fascists-now.html?smid=tw-share&referer=https://t.co/DAlpzEfIO0?amp=1

Quote
But it is also a concerted attempt to significantly redraw the bounds of acceptable thought and speech. By tossing people like Mary Beard and Christina Hoff Sommers into the slop bucket with the likes of Richard Spencer, they are attempting to place their reasonable ideas firmly outside the mainstream. They are trying to make criticism of identity politics, radical Islam and third-wave feminism, among various other subjects, verboten. For even the most minor transgressions, as in the case of Professor Beard, people are turned radioactive.

There are consequences to all this “fascism” — and not just the reputational damage to those who are smeared, though there is surely that.

The main effect is that these endless accusations of “fascism” or “misogyny” or “alt-right” dull the effects of the words themselves. As they are stripped of meaning, they strip us of our sharpness — of our ability to react forcefully to real fascists and misogynists or members of the alt-right.

asking a university to rescind an invitation to speak at a law school luncheon is not a violation of anyone's freedom of speech. smdh

It amuses me that people acting like fascists are so frequently accusing others of being fascist.

It's true. Also weird how often the supposedly liberal only tolerate one point of view.
