I'm on Campus This Evening, Working on my Last Three Papers.

Take heart though.


In stark contrast to college today, this will likely make you smarter.


Trigger Warning: Not recommended those who are easily disturbed, or suffer from anxiety or depression.

Astonishingly, There are Things Happening in the World Besides Term Papers and Exams

This is one of the most interesting...



The bit about the Black Financial University site getting demonetized is interesting and downright scary. It looks like algorithims and outrage mobs are threatening to turn the internet into something as bland and even more risk averse than the 3 networks were pre-cable. 

As a child growing up in the era after the first attempts by network standards and practices departments to appease the outrage mobs, I can attest to the sort of place that leads to.


 

Oh. Dear.

Yeah kids, the future's gonna be THAT bad if GoogleFacebookAmazon runs it. 

A quick perusal of Maven's activism page leaves me somewhat less sanguine than Mr. McCollum, but still very hopeful. We eagerly await further developments there and elsewhere.

Oh

Some years ago I was taking a class on historical methods. This involved learning proper citation and research techniques for HISTORY MAJORS. This was a 300 level course. Everyone in it was at least interested in HISTORY. 


The course was taught around the Holocaust, on the third day of class (my first day) a young lady tapped me on the shoulder and quietly asked a word that the instructor kept repeating in his lecture, but had given no explanation for, as if it was somehow supposed to be common knowledge...

"What's  an Auschwitz?"

"A NAZI concentration camp. One of the big ones."

"A what?'

"..."

The scariest thing about this is that in the course of the class it became clear that his young woman was not actually stupid. She was quite bright. She just didn't know.

People don't believe me when I tell them this.

However, via Instapundit, come indications that she was not a fluke....

More than one-fifth of millennials in the U.S. -- 22 percent -- haven'theard of, or aren't sure if they've heard of, the Holocaust, according to a study published Thursday,
...
...
Two-thirds of millennials could not identify in the survey what Auschwitz was

In other news, I note what is surely an unrelated trend.

And that taps out my bitter sarcasm reserves so I have no words left for the revelation  that Winston Churchill is widely thought to be a fictional character


This 2D lass sums up my thoughts on the matter though...

Slow Clap


Yes.
Yes.

This fellow, no doubt, represents the greatest fear of the identitarians. The fate of our society hangs on how many of us define themselves this way.


Minor Quibble: OK, a select fire switch does not confer magical combat prowess, and its absence does not render one helpless, as our troops have learned from all those Martini-Henrys and Mosins in the Hindu Kush.
