Liberal-Progressives Will Teach Us What To Think
‘Academic Justice’: Inside the Abyss of the Academy, which appears on the FrontPage website, conjures up visions of ruthless, all-encompassing political rule by George Orwell’s Big Brother in the novel 1984. Arthur Koestler’s Darkness at Noon, based on Stalin’s 1938 purges of dissidents in the Moscow show trials, also comes to mind.
The common theme is that no one, under liberal-progressive ‘social justice,’ can be allowed to express opinions other than those approved by the ruling intellectual elite. Anyone who ventures to question the elite must be liquidated, or at least, in the manner of the Democrat/Socialist Party, tarred with the brush of treason and racism.
