MEH. MOST EVERYTHING ABOUT UNIVERSITIES IS DRIVEN BY IDEOLOGY, SO WHY SHOULDN’T IT BE THE SAME FOR THEIR CRITICS: Ideology Seen as Factor in Closings in University of North Carolina System. “An advisory panel of the University of North Carolina’s Board of Governors has recommended closing three academic centers, including a poverty center and one dedicated to social change, inciting outrage among liberals who believe that conservatives in control of state government are targeting ideological opponents in academia.”

Yeah, because ideology had nothing to do with the establishment of those centers in the first place.

Here’s a lesson: Universities are like the trial lawyers. I’m not unsupportive of the trial lawyers, and I think that some reforms are unfair to plaintiffs. But when you align yourself exclusively with one party, and weaponize yourself in that party’s cause, you’re going to pay the price when the other party is in power. That’s the price you pay for whoring yourself out.
