Is the Marxist Mob Taking over Academia? (Francisco Wong-Diaz, USA, 04/25/21 4:12 am)

I return briefly from the field to share a worthy piece. This article I present is reflective of the secular trend in academia. I know because I have met, and continue to meet, many ideologues posing as honest truth-seeking academics who regularly teach what to think, not how to think.

The current push in American educational institutions to normalize "critical race theory" that polarizes everything and everyone into "oppressors or victims" and makes racism the golden standard is a reflection of the race to the bottom being sought by the new Marxists and their minions.

The end goal is always the same--namely, totalitarian control over a society wherein most everyone is poor, dependent on the government, and ruled by a ruthless kleptocracy. We are just in the early (mob activism) stages of that process of destruction. Pity the ignoramuses, like SEIU union leaders, who expect to participate in a glorious revolution from above, they will be the first to face the "paredón," for who needs unions when the sole employer or check-writing institution is the government itself?

JE comments:  Are these academic debates shifting the paradigms, or are they tempests in the proverbial teapot?  The National Review piece focuses on Georgetown U.  I can assure Francisco Wong-Díaz that the non-elite universities (such as my own) are focused on more mundane issues amidst the pandemic:  keeping the doors open and the payroll paid.

I'm fond of one neologism in the above:  the progressoriat, which refers to a thought-policing clique of academic firebrands.  I believe the term will stick, but here's the bigger question:  are they as threatening as the doomsdayers suggest?  The Mao analogy collapses for one basic reason:  Mao had power.
