As high school seniors throughout America will be receiving acceptance letters to colleges within the next month, it would be nice for parents to meditate on what they’re getting for the $20,000 to 50,000 they’ll pay each year.
—The United States is no better than any other country, and in many areas, it’s worse than many. On the world stage, America is an imperialist country, and domestically, it mistreats its minorities and neglects its poor while discriminating against non-whites.
—There is no better and no worse in literature and the arts. The reason universities in the past taught Shakespeare, Michelangelo, and Bach rather than, let’s say, Guatemalan poets, Sri Lankan musicians and Native American storytellers, was “Eurocentrism.”
—God is at best a nonissue, and at worst a foolish and dangerous belief.
—Christianity is largely a history of inquisitions, crusades, oppression and anti-intellectualism. Islam, on the other hand, is “a religion of peace.” Therefore, criticism of Christianity is enlightened, while criticism of Islam is Islamophobia.
—Israel is a racist state, morally no different from apartheid South Africa.
—Big government is the only humane way to govern a country.
—The South votes Republican because it is still racist, and the Republican Party caters to racists.
—Mothers and fathers are interchangeable. Claims that married mothers and fathers are the parental ideal and bring unique things to a child are heterosexist and homophobic.
—Whites can be racist; non-whites cannot be (because whites have power, and the powerless cannot be racist).
—The great world and societal battles are not between good and evil, but between rich and poor and the powerful and the powerless.
— Patriotism is usually a euphemism for chauvinism.
—War is ignoble. Pacifism is noble.
—Human beings are animals. They differ from “other animals” primarily in having better brains.
—We live in a patriarchal society, which is injurious to women.
—Women are victims of men.
—Blacks are victims of whites.
—Latinos are victims of Anglos.
