Overview

When parents send their children off to college, mom and dad hope they'll return more cultivated, knowledgeable, and astute--able to see issues from all points of view. But, according to Ben Shapiro, there's only one view allowed on most college campuses: a rabid brand of liberalism that must be swallowed hook, line, and sinker. In this explosive book, Ben Shapiro, a college student himself, reveals how America's university system is one of the largest brainwashing machines on the planet. Examining this nationwide problem from firsthand experience, Shapiro shows how the leftists who dominate the universities--from the administration to the student government, from the professors to the student media--use their power to mold impressionable minds. Fresh and bitterly funny, this book proves that the universities, far from being a place for open discussion, are really dungeons of the mind that indoctrinate students to become socialists, atheists, race-baiters, and narcissists.

Leftwing propaganda is pushed as just about the only kind of diversity, on the college campuses these days. This is because colleges and universities take money from leftwing foundations such as La Raza, MALDEF, NAACP, and Ford, and often hide into their own college foundations, and the average college student is not aware that there can be some pretty pernicious politics associated with the foundation money once the college takes the funds. The new game is for college administrators to tell students they 'need psychological counseling,' if they disagree with the Left. FORD thinks the college student is the new social experiment towards the New World Order. How is that for thought control!

This book pin-points the problem and then dissects and interrogates the liberal colleges and universities. To say that public, tax funded schools are not subtly convincing students to think or act a certain way is naive and ignorant. As a student I also see the sneaky way that liberal teachers and professors push their agenda, like watching Bowling for Columbine in an English class, with not rebuttal. Is that fair? Those that do not like this book are Liberals themselves, and do not like the truth to come out, only when it is attacking conservatives is it then fair. Good Job Ben Shapiro!

He says the liberal college he attends has 'a diverse student base' but does not explain the nature of the diversity. He says that college educated people are more likely to be liberal; (duh) sounds like this fully supports the premise of the book! And finally, he says that no one's minds can ever be changed (there's an open-minded individual for you!) so, even those young, and impressionable college students will come out just as they went in?? Yeah, right. Houston, we have a problem. I particularly like 'no one can make anyone believe something they didn't already believe to begin with' (wow, man, how profound). I'd say find another college if that's what you're learning, but I suspect it's not the fault of the faculty.
