HIGHER EDUCATION BUBBLE UPDATE: Ed Morrissey: Yale, Mizzou and Others—Training a Generation of Proto-Fascists. “To paraphrase an old Monty Python routine, come and see the violence inherent in campus progressivism. Academia no longer values an open and robust exchange of ideas, a pursuit of truth, and adherence to actual tolerance. Actual commitment to learning would have prompted scrutiny of extraordinary claims and discussion of differing points of view. Instead, campuses have become overrun by proto-fascists who want submission to groupthink and are not afraid to call out for ‘some muscle’ to enforce it.”

America’s unprecedented investment in higher education hasn’t turned out very well. Expect a correction.
