... Einstein


"The value of a college education is not the learning of many facts, but the training of the mind to think."

I commend those who pursue a college education, without a doubt. it is, however, disturbing to witness the recent and rising infiltration of such radical liberals who unabashedly fill young, impressionable minds with their world views as though they were absolute truth...

Maybe it's a good thing for young impressionable minds to struggle with "radical liberal" opinions and learn to form an opinion of their own.

You can live in a bubble for only so long and then you have to actually go in to the world!! (IN the world but not OF it) Some of us have to work next to these "radicals", some of us actually think these "radicals" may have a thing or two to teach us sanctimonious and judgmental Christians about loving the poor and weak and defenseless ones in our society...

If kids are taught to sift through information and hold it up to truth and facts (which is what the training of the mind is!) then maybe it wouldn't be a problem...

"Radical liberals" are not the enemy. Unquestioning minds are.
