Finny Kuruvilla on modern educational goals

The people most likely to believe the higher education system in the United States is good are either liberals or educators. They see the liberal indoctrination and the focus away from preparing students for the world and have no problem with it. As long as they get people thinking the same way, their well-being and preparedness are secondary.

Finny Kuruvilla thinks differently and he’s doing something about it. He will be opening Sattler College next year with $30 million of his own money to fund it. The school will be geared towards conservative Christian students and is opening in, of all places, Boston. Kuruvilla graduated from Harvard.

One of his quips in a recent interview is quite profound:

“The whole notion of education has become generally confined to academic thought, not so much to developing of the whole person, character, and integrity.”

We’ll be watching this school closely once it opens.

https://www.bostonglobe.com/metro/2017/12/24/new-college-for-conservative-christians-planned-boston/Ur6XXwLz98NYmadpzljWvN/story.htmlIn a city full of colleges and in an economy increasingly perilous for small schools, one wealthy businessman is making an unlikely investment. Next fall he will open a college in Boston geared toward conservative Christian students, using an innovative model that incorporates online learning.

Sattler College, named after a 16th century martyr, will be entirely funded by Finny Kuruvilla, an investment fund manager with a medical degree and a PhD from Harvard. He has guaranteed $30 million of his money to fund the school.

    He’ll get as much support as Trump does from the RINO establishment. Good luck to him. I hope he can find more donors. He should have based it somewhere where it would be appreciated. Who is John Galt?

Why free speech is so hated by college students

Why free speech is so hated by college students

You’ve heard the stories. Free speech isn’t actually a thing on college campuses around the country. There seems to be certain types of protected speech, such as anything that embraces the leftist narrative of these progressive indoctrination centers, but any views that are considered to be too conservative for the delicate eyes or ears of college students are quickly stifled.

But it’s not just the administrators, professors, and other far-left employees of the colleges. The students themselves are opting out of free speech willingly. Sure, they’d probably complain if anyone intruded on their rights to espouse hyper-leftist ideologies or spew out progressive talking points, but that won’t happen. Why? Because those who may be opposed to their ideas are the same people who embrace limited government, free speech, and our rights as Americans. Therefore, the people who have an incentive to quash leftist notions are the very people who are against quashing anyone’s notions at all.

It’s a conundrum for conservatives because the same courtesy is not paid to them. Free speech (or any of our rights, for that matter) is neither appreciated nor sacred to leftists. So we’re stuck trying to protect our own rights to free speech while defending the left’s rights to the same. Meanwhile, they don’t have to defend their right to free speech because nobody’s trying to deny them of this right, but they’re busy trying to prevent any conservative ideas from seeping through to the collective conscious of their precious university environment.

This video by Campus Reform shows leftist students doing everything they can to prevent conservative ideas from being seen, let alone appreciated. This is important to them to stop ideas from being observed and potentially discussed, but they believe the reason they do it is to stop “hate speech.” The definition of “hate speech” on college campuses throughout America has become anything that’s contrary to their own progressive philosophy. Therein lies the real reason free speech is so hated.

We appreciate everything Campus Reform and their parent organization does. We strive to deliver strong conservative perspectives for college students as well, which is why we remain a crowdfunded publication powered by donations of our readers. The only way to stop the censorship of conservative ideas on college campuses is to continue to spread the word. We have reality on our side, so the more we push the message, the easier it will be to break through their indoctrinated defense shields.

The bottom line for college leftists is deep down, they realize their arguments are wrong. Their only defense against thoughtful conservative perspectives is to prevent as many people as possible from hearing them. Why? Because they have no defense against the truth.

Matt Walsh on his new Lamborghini and the student debt issue

Matt Walsh on his new Lamborghini and the student debt issue

Over normally not a fan of modern day parables. Biblical parables are so impressive, it makes our attempt today seem weak 99 times out of 100. Matt Walsh presented the parable of the Lamborghini today and it’s worth noting.

He framed it nicely in his article, “I Bought A Lamborghini But Now I Don’t Want To Pay For It. I Demand Lamborghini Loan Forgiveness.

As I propose — no, I demand — Lamborghini loan forgiveness. It is simply unfair that I have saddled myself with this unspeakable financial burden. It is the worst injustice I have ever perpetrated against myself, and I demand restitution. I don’t really care how the matter is resolved, just as long as it ends with me cruising debt-free down the highway in my bright yellow Lambo. Yes, I will be keeping the car. I’m not asking for a refund here — I’m talking about forgiveness. The debt should be wiped clean. Like it never happened. Poof. Gone.

The moral of the story is a condemnation against the privileged folks coming out of college who now believe they shouldn’t have dp pay back their student loans. Personal responsibility got our decisions used to be a hallmark of American exceptionalism. But between poor parenting, leftist propaganda, and of course good ol’ fashioned progressive indoctrination in American universities, many students are buying into the notion that the obligation they agreed to when they first went to college should be forcibly forgiven.

Democrats are latching onto this idea, as expected, by crying alongside the snowflakes and offering to forgive the debt. It’s not that they’ve earned the right or they’ve been wronged by someone who took advantage of their goodwill. They signed up for expensive colleges knowing they should have to pay back the loans, yet more they’re pretending like they were somehow made a victim.

Student debt isn’t the crisis that it’s being framed as by Democrats. It’s a bribe to get people who made poor choices in their youth to vote Democrat for the sake of financial gain. Of course, the resulting skyrocketing college prices isn’t their problem.

Brainwashed: 49.6% of Millennials and Gen Z want to live in a socialist country

Brainwashed 496 of Millennials and Gen Z want to live in a socialist country

It’s game over. All hope for the future has been lost. At least, that may be the knee-jerk reaction for some who learn that the youthful minds of America, those known as Millennials and Generation Z, are practically at 50% in their belief they want to live in a socialist country.

I call it a “belief” because those of us who’ve done our research and/or who have lived past the age of 40 clearly understand that embracing socialism and wanting to live in a socialist nation is pure lunacy. It’s hard to imagine a society so blessed as ours that has people wanting to remove those blessings by embracing the most failure-ridden type of government and economic policy the world has ever known. It’s as if they don’t see China, North Korea, or Venezuela at all.

Perhaps their thinking is that America is so great and so abundant in our riches that we can redistribute it all and everyone comes out on top other than the rich. That may be fine for them on the surface, but once you extend out the results and see the end after all the socialist dominoes fall, it’s clear to anyone with a living brain cell that such a notion is national suicide. You can’t operate in a way that generates prosperity for nearly anyone who wants it and then switch to a system that literally steals prosperity in an effort to make us all equally miserable.

But, apparently that’s the plan.

The usual suspects are all in play here as we search for who to blame for such absolutely backward thinking. The education system, particularly American universities, are leftist indoctrination centers. Most of mainstream media is pure progressive propaganda. Democrats are pushing their favorite vote-acquisition apparatus, the “everything’s free” button. Meanwhile, conservatives continue to fight for sanity in the midst of it all.

Those who support socialism willfully or unwittingly forgo their basic rights of choice. They hand over their will to the authoritarian powers of government and they expect the rest of us to do it with them. We must not. We will not. This is still America.
