Many come to Amercian universities because thay speak english (for now). No on from the US would go to a shool in Japan or Russia or China, because the languages are not commonly, or even less commonly spoken in the western world, whereas most chinese people speak english.

I note again, that the USA is again number one in the top Univerities in the world. Sadly, I note that only one Russian university even made the list. Not to bright or smart, but not everyone can be winners. Sad. Truly sad.

No. I was taught by the very best Marxist professors in both the Cal-State system and UC system for graduate degree. I live on the peninsula just south of babylon west, San Francisco. I do see that Hitler was very correct about Marxism, but it took me awhile to sort it out!

You are full of sht. You have no degrees. A drop out neo-nazi skinhead, living in a trailer park, and working as a garbage collector. A disgruntled, low intelligent, social misfit.

My core areas are knowledge, social psychology, and deviancy. LOL!

Trust me, I was taught by Marxists, everyone, except don't know for sure concerning professors of statistics or methods. The Sociologists ALL FULLY knew that they were Marxists, but the Psychologists were, for the most part, completely CLUELESS that their nonsense was based upon Marxism, or if they knew, they could care less!

I will not deny that marxist professors exist. Nor will I deny that liberal/leftists are in our unviversities with their philosphies, etc. In fact, I will agree with you that they may even be in the majority. BUT, it is the actual subject matter and results of same that is graded, not the classroom athmosphere. I, and millions of other Americans who graduated from institutions of higher learning did not become communists or leftists. We learned and applied our learned knowledge quite well.
Therefore , while you are correct in your maxist part, it did not influence or affect our learning our curriculim or focus on our chosen fields.

And I am as anti-communist as you could ever imagine. Our universities are still the best in the world, reagardless.

Apparently, you were aware of your marxist professors. BUT, you seem not to be a communist. But rather quite anti-communist.
So, and as such, why your support of an authoritive regime like Putin's Russia, and the demeaning posts regarding the U. S.?

And why your interest in the neo-nazi movement?

I know nothing of neo Nazis or Russian skins. I simply understand how Marxists took the helm of our country with the Civil War launch and took absolute control of the US just prior to WWI.

Hitler was the only disruption in the Satanic Marxist Leviathan world take over! The only reason he saw the Marxist menace was because he watched the German fall during WWI and the Weimar Republic, completely Marxist, take the helm, while watching the fall of the Russian monarchy to the same euro Marxists. Hitler saw that the Marxists gained power by enticing capital with various protection schemes, relegating Germany into poverty.

In our country, Marxists took control of the mass media, public education, leading to complete control over the mass 'democratic' mind, through various Marxist strategies of females voting, non-property owners voting, and a myriad other social factors, all anti-Christ in doctrine.

Have you ever lived with a woman, for years? And studied how she thinks and perceives everyday common sense stuff? And moved to a few different areas of the country?

In TWO WEEKS the wife, with the SMALLEST social interaction, will at the pre-conscious level of perception, we grasp the local regional thinking and TEACH this new doctrine(s)!

Marxist knew early on that the female was the center of the family, and Christ countered this with insisting that the male MUST be the head of the family.

Marxists used our females to gain control over Christian doctrine!

Above only frames a couple sides, but you get the point, which you will not understand until you study what I'm talking about, which is most likely impossible.

Campus chancellors at University of California drive up student tuition costs: UC Berkeley $50,000. Just how widespread is the budget crisis at University of California Berkeley? University of California Chancellor Robert J Birgeneau’s ($500,000 salary) eight-year fiscal track record is dismal indeed. He would like to blame the politicians, since they stopped giving him every dollar he has asked for, and the state legislators do share some responsibility for the financial crisis. But not in the sense he means.
A competent chancellor would have been on top of identifying inefficiencies in the system and then crafting a plan to fix them. Competent oversight by the Board of Regents and the legislature would have required him to provide data on problems and on what steps he was taking to solve them. Instead, every year Birgeneau would request a budget increase, the regents would agree to it, and the legislature would provide. The hard questions were avoided by all concerned, and the problems just piled up to $150 million of inefficiencies….until there was no money left.
It’s not that Birgeneau was unaware that there were, in fact, waste and inefficiencies in the system. Faculty and staff have raised issues with senior management, but when they failed to see relevant action taken, they stopped. Finally, Birgeneau ($500,000 salary) engaged some expensive ($7.2 million) consultants, Bain & Company, to tell him what he should have been able to find out from the bright, engaged people in his own organization.
In short, there is plenty of blame to go around. Merely cutting out inefficiencies will not have the effect desired. But you never want a serious crisis to go to waste. An opportunity now exists for the UC President, Chairman of the UC Board of Regents Gould, California Legislators to jolt Cal back to life, applying some simple oversight check-and-balance management practices. Increasing the budget is not enough; transforming senior management is necessary. The faculty, Academic Senate, Cal. Alumni, financial donors, benefactors await Cal senior management’s transformation.

UC Berkeley public reprimand, censure: NCAA places Chancellor Birgeneau’s men’s basketball program on probation

The author who has 35 years’ consulting experience, has taught at University of California Berkeley, where he was able to observe the culture and the way senior management work.

(World class preeminent public research and teaching UC Berkeley ranking tumbles from 2nd best. In 2004 the London-based Times Higher Education ranked UC Berkeley the second leading university in the world, just behind Harvard; in 2009 that ranking tumbled to 39th place. By 2011 the ranking had not returned to 2nd best)
