Academics Are Non-Thinkers - Conformity Is Easier



"The leaders of the left sitting in think-tanks, government offices, newsrooms, and faculty lounges, regaling each other demonstrating who may be the smartest in the room, are essentially incapable of initiating an original political thought or *having any independence of mind.  In the realm of political theory, the only accepted and promulgated ideology is of an all-powerful central government controlling the day-to-day lives of all Americans -- no opposing views, historical facts, or reality are allowed to intrude on these bastions of conformity."

More here at the American Thinker.

*The same is true in the world of Civil War history - just read the various academic CW blogs and see how much diversity of opinion and thought exists. Practically none. As I've said before, you read one, you've pretty much read them all. There are a few exceptions, but not many. It's rather incestuous - and the long term results of the incestuous thinking are very similar to the real thing.

Well, yes. Isn't this what we mean by diversity?

Of course we know that they mean diversity in everything *except* that which they're *supposed* to expand. Again, just read their blogs. They're all singing from the same songbook. It's quite hilarious.
