Asshat invasion here.
President Hanlon expressed praise for the goal of “social justice” in his email but went on to say that abusive language is “not acceptable.”
Where is the social justice angle, in preventing other students (many of whom may have gone into debt) from studying at the library?
The local police chief says no crime occurred, and he is right.
An assault on the intellectual life is not a crime. But the university that tolerates it is unnecessary to the intellectual life.
Question: How many hours did they have torture the adminbot prez, to get him to issue his pathetic gesture of protest. Why did he even bother?
Reality check: For yay years, I have read reams of traditionalist angst against what was happening, and find that it usually missed the point.
Adminbots try to sound upset because the modern-day Vikings* would rather raise heck at schools than study there, without asking, really, why?
Why? Because the post-modern deconstructed humanities are just a waste of time anyway.
Adminbots don’t put up with students terrorizing, maybe eventually torching, libraries just because thosee adminbots are bad people. Bad people might have the students shot.
Nor because they are weak people. Weak people can be replaced by strong or bad people, if much is at stake. But much ISN’T at stake. That’s the point.
Far from it, what the asshat students need in order to occupy the positions they will occupy later in life is precisely the qualities they are exhibiting and learning to finesse now.
The main thing for the rest of us is to stop supporting U’s financially. Progressive governments can compel the money from us. So let them.
* Yes, that’s what Vikings did at monasteries (essentially the schools of their day) 1500 years ago. They had their angst, their reasons, and their grievances too.
