Even Carl Sagan could occasionally make a good point. He wrote The Demon-Haunted World to argue that putting logically irrefutable evidence in people’s faces every day would make them more intelligent, informed and potentially more moral.
For The Cathedral, that would be lethal. So it has a cure for any sort of enlightenment, dark, grey, pink or otherwise. They send you to some form of mandatory enstupidation training. The preferred venue for your stupidity injection is the American College or University campus. The Amerikan Mind is closed because the Amerikan Cathedral prefers it hermetically sealed.
Where does this training take place? The university. It is the mind-fvck end of the Cathedral tentacle-porn apparatus. What happens to the average student’s mental ability during four years of undergraduate indoctrination? Nothing good. Business Insider tells us the sad, sad truth. The dirty low-down.
So, does college actually makes you smarter in the end? â€œAcademically Adrift: Limited Learning on College Campusesâ€ is written by two professors at NYU and UVA who conclude a definitive, “No.” They followed 2,300+ undergraduates at 24 universities and found “45 percent of these students demonstrate no significant improvement in a range of skillsâ€”including critical thinking, complex reasoning, and writingâ€”during their first two years of college.” Their overall finding coincides with the National Survey of Student Engagement, which studied 2 million students across 1,000 universities and found most spent little time studying and writing.
So why the failure? In addition to the scientific fact that education cannot raise your general intelligence or g, I can think of two possible explanations.
1) You get what you tolerate. Let the place become an Animal House, and as Senator Hollins once famously remarked: “There’s too much consumin’ goin’ on!” When they hang from the chandeliers by their knees, it could cause them to have a drinking problem. Another problem caused by excess tolerance of sub-optimal behavior is takeover by radicals.
2) You get what you attract. The Law of Attraction tells us that we will get what we ask for. The Cathedral wants docile obedience. You get that by asking for stupid. Lot’s of stupid. It’s easy to lead the easily lead. Nobody is easier to lead against their interests than the man with his head ensconced up his butthole. So when colleges and universities train brain-washed idiots, they are doing so in accordance with the Law of Attraction. The idiots are their reward.
So the system gets its brainless cogs. What do we get out of this? The societal stupidity you see every night on CNN, MSNBC and other media outlets is a direct outcome of their professional training. The Cathedral Janissaries fight the way they train. So that’s how it goes in the US public square.
