lol! Why don't you show us the book on how Americans are supposed to think son.<quoted text>
There is a special place in Hell for Academicians. Today's institutions of learning are no longer institutions of learning. They are indoctrination centers.
Learning to think independently hasn't been done inside of any American Learning Institution in probably over 60 years now. Reality is what the leftist professor tells you it is. If you disagree, you get a poor grade. I've been there.
Students today just want that piece of paper so they can get on with a high-paid career. Disagreeing with your perfessor is a no-no. This attitude, however, leaves the student with no skills for discerning right from wrong, right from left or stupid from common sense and, somewhere down the road, that student will encounter a critical moment in their lives that will demand thinking skills they don't have. So they use their old professor's advice and run with it. Collectively, this causes America to shoot itself in the foot because we can't think independently. To wit: this last election.
I'd sure like a gander at what you're reading!
