How Academia is Hindering Mankind's Improvement
"To preserve the freedom of the human mind... and freedom of the press, every spirit should be ready to devote itself to martyrdom; for as long as we may think as we will and speak as we think, the condition of man will proceed in improvement." ~ Thomas Jefferson to William Green Munford, 1799.
At an increasing number of American colleges and universities, one is no longer allowed to "think as we will and speak as we think", thus hindering our advancement. And that sentiment is playing out in many other aspects of American society. Political Correctness and stifling debate and opposition is at the root of the suppression.
And the cowards in academia are enablers.
