    Liberal professors outnumber conservatives 12 to 1: Study - Washington Times

    Liberal professors outnumber conservatives nearly 12 to 1, study finds

    Example: man marries woman. Two genders.




    Critical Theory is a broad approach to challenging and destabilizing established knowledge.
    I'd suggest you read this and some of the links therein. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liberty_Fund

    If you are openly conservative in a university setting its an environment of hate directed at you.

    If you are a conservative and a Christian you automatically get tagged with a life expectancy number.
    That's the stuff of con talk radio, not reality.

    You once posted that you would vote for Obama to make your college free or some such thing. How exactly are you conservative?

    And our state governments. And our local governments. And they are working to lock in their gains through voter suppression and limitless, anonymous political contributions.

    I asked a question? Yes, when the top 0.1% own as much as the bottom 90%, democracy will have problems keeping its balance.

    It's one thing to discover new things and quite another to reinvent what is known to be truth.

    LOLOL Is that your 'expert' opinion?

    Overall, Marxism is a tiny minority faith.* Just 3% of professors accept the label.* The share rises to 5% in the humanities.* The shocker, though, is that as recently as 2006, about 18% of social scientists self-identified as Marxists.
    That was 2006. The following snippet details that this is not a serious study, but an op-ed piece.

    In contrast, I urge you to rubberneck.* If 18% of biologists believed in creationism, that would be a big deal.* Why?* Because creationism is nonsense.* Similarly, if 18% of social scientists believe in Marxism, that too is a big deal.* Why?* Because Marxism is nonsense.* Furthermore, if 18% of a discipline fully embrace a body of nonsense, there is also probably a large bloc of nonsense sympathizers - people who won't swallow the nonsense whole, but nevertheless see great value in it.* Suppose, plausibly, that there is one fellow traveler for every true believer.* That would bring the share of abject intellectual corruption to fully 35% - and 51% in sociology.
    This partisan dick is just speculating.

    Maybe Hollywood is to blame. At least a couple of TV shows, Scorpion and The Big Bang Theory, depict highly educated people as being socially inept and lacking common sense.

    The egghead who lacks common sense is a trope that far precedes current TV shows.
