Critical thought is dead and on its corpse grows a parasitic creature that without substance to ferment on will eventually consume itself and its supporters. Lets hope this time comes soon, as university is a reflection of state and the current state of the world is as piddlingly bad as it feels.

The New Normal is custom built to cater to people of the weakest of mind and easiest to sway with whatever quasi-morality is topical.

Perfect for fascism and authoritarianism to take hold for:

My University Sacrificed Ideas for Ideology. So Today I Quit.
The more I spoke out against the illiberalism that has swallowed Portland State University, the more retaliation I faced.
in 2017, I co-published an intentionally garbled peer-reviewed paper that took aim at the new orthodoxy. Its title: “The Conceptual Penis as a Social Construct.” This example of pseudo-scholarship, which was published in Cogent Social Sciences, argued that penises were products of the human mind and responsible for climate change. Immediately thereafter, I revealed the article as a hoax designed to shed light on the flaws of the peer-review and academic publishing systems.

Shortly thereafter, swastikas in the bathroom with my name under them began appearing in two bathrooms near the philosophy department. They also occasionally showed up on my office door, in one instance accompanied by bags of feces. Our university remained silent. When it acted, it was against me, not the perpetrators.

I ask you all, where is your red line.. How far is too far?
