A Trigger Warning for Taxpayers

“…With this in mind, below are two exhibits that might — should, to be frank — prompt some thought about what taxpayers are underwriting.

First, “geography” as it is being taught at a tertiary level. The speaker is Associate Professor Simon Springer, from Canada’s Victoria University, who will touring Australian universities in July. The University of Queensland’s advance publicity for its revered guest neatly, if unintentionally, captures the cookie-cutter vacuity of yet another leftist cliche spigot. What it doesn’t capture is his way with words, one word in particular.”

    I had previously thought that Geography is “a field of science devoted to the study of the lands, the features, the inhabitants, and the phenomena of Earth.”, but I now stand corrected: its definition must be “Angry Marxism”.

      he is woefully ignorant for a professor

      perhaps his tenure should be revoked and the committee who heard him defend his dissertation should be challenged to justify not revoking his PhD.

        The sad truth is that his views are probably common amongst his fellow academics. There is a certain truth to the Robert Conquest’s saying, “Any organization not explicitly right-wing sooner or later becomes left-wing.”

        It is likely that his colleagues might think Prof. Springer’s thoughts to be right wing and not progressive enough.

      There remains very few subjects which have not been destroyed by angry marxists, be the of any of the current stripes.

    The professor holds the Mandrake chair in Diverse Social Interface Studies. He sees himself as a street fighting man…..he’s a mean mofo and gets lotsa girls…..he doesn’t avoid them of course but he DOES deny them his essence.
