Episode Info: One Allan Bloom wrote a book entitled:         CLOSING OF THE AMERICAN MIND.Prophetic, realistic, and tragically happening today in America and to some extent around the world. The ability to think and to express thinking freely, thoughts and ideas, whether creative or noxious is the basic pillar of democracy. Its that freedom to think, to express, to engage at all times in free speech, or press, or assembly or especially religion for if that is taken away, democracy dies and all freedoms of humankind with it. That my fellow Americans is happening now, right now in so many of our educational institutions, both university and even high school. Somehow, radical faculty and teachers have gotten control of education and the teaching curriculum and with that, demanded a certain way of thinking, introduced new intellectual standards, and new moral values. The freedom to think differently and exercise the right of free speech no matter how differing from the current orthodoxy has been so largely controlled or even eliminated.

So many of these university professors have become arrogant, prideful and totally intolerant of dissent of any kind. The university system of hiring provides for TENURE which when granted, protects these professors for a lifetime, A LIFETIME! So that, absent the most egregious conduct, they can not be fired nor can what and how they teach be censored or monitored. They are EXEMPT, above normalcy with an ever–growing disrespect for the average citizen and especially the young American mind. They are spiritually bereft and determined to change the morals of America. They wish to radically change American history, they condone the destruction of historical property like statutes and they promote the rallying cry of today, namely RACISM everywhere and in everyone, especially every white person. They want control, absolute control, the radical transformati...
