"... to my mind, though I am native here, And to the manner born, it is a customMore honor'd in the breach than the observance," so says William Buckley of Yale's and, indeed, higher education's adherence to it's own, self-serving doctrine of "academic freedom." A surprisingly good read - dictionary in hand, of course - especially given that it was written more than sixty years ago. Both prescient and discouraging for those preferring individualism over collectivism. A new dark age awaits if we accept the fools gold of "Hope and Change" as intellectual currency.

Well reasoned critique of University teachings falling far short of its original charter and mission. An insightful and comprehensive argument against the unrestrained teachings of collectivism by a faculty run amuck. Though written in 1952, it reads as if could have been written today.

Truly a classic and a must read for anyone concerned with the state of education in America today, and how it got this way.
