You are only saying that because Williams is black. Have you been the Chairman of a university economics department? Do you dispute the historic facts about the number of people who have been killed by the socialist/fascist/communists? When you are as well educated as Williams, then you can have an opinion of his intellect. Until then, it's racist to label him garbage.

What is funny is when people say trickle down economics doesn't work. What some call trickle down is just plain old Capitalism ! As Kennedy said " A rising tide raises all boats" Look at how bad the economy was under Obama with an average GDP of 1.5%. Obama killed the economy with over regulation and red tape. President Trump released the tremendous power of American Capitalism !

She does. Posted a blog once and defended it with “he has a physics degree.”

Only when it agrees with you, am I correct?

The topic is whether or not kids are being brainwashed into accepting socialism. Liberals responsded by attacking the author instead. I'd say that answers the question. And nobody from the left is disputing the numbers of people murdered by socialist/fascist/communist regimes forcing their ideology on others.

Education creates knowledge, but it doesn't engender insight into how to use that knowledge. Just because a guy has a bunch of letters following his name, that doesn't make him smart.

I think the question is an insulting one to those we're calling kids. We, and Professor Williams, are making the assumption that they can't think for themselves, and just blindly follow whatever academia and society tell them.

Right again, Denizen. Once again you are just in time to pull us into deeper waters !
Given that young people will naturally rebel, and dismiss a large amount of their instruction as outdated, or biased, it would be a wonder if a single ideology remained intact !

I contend that that is exactly what is happening, and exactly what the "progressive" instructors at leftist schools intend. It's the reason the Democrats want to lower the legal voting age to 16. You can brainwash a teenager into thinking he IS thinking for himself when you fill his head with propaganda. They target this age because young people are whiny, myopic, militant and selfish.

Which Democrats want to lower the voting age to 16? Reference, please.

And don't you remember being a teenager? Whatever the old people were for (and by old, I mean anyone over 30) teens were virulently against. I stand by my assessment of their resiliency and resistance to tyranny, mental or otherwise.

Yeah, they can be taught that freedom is tyranny. But, remember what Churchill had to say about liberals over the age of 40?
Therapists help people solve their problems by asking the adult question, "Is it so?" "Does capitalism really oppress people?" "Will raising taxes really stop global warming? How?" The person who doesn't question and rethink everything they were taught in high school and college isn't thinking for himself.

Thank you.

Well, that's dumb. They should all be reading things like this:
