Imperial lecturers reside in a global of idea; they hold forth disdain for mere proof and for old school fact-based judgments like actual or fake. Schoolchildren are normally taught theories approximately heritage rather than genuine history—they examine, for instance, that every one countries are both great with the exception of the USA, that's almost always nasty.

With educational specialists to do our considering for us, we’ve courteously close up and permit second-raters take the wheel. in reality, now we have passed the keys to the superstar student and teacher’s puppy of the post-religious globalist intellectuals, whose election to the presidency of the us constituted the final word worldwide team hug.
