Philosophy Is Hard

And they Kant do it.

Sorry, it was a slow meatball right in my wheel house.

Those who can, do, those who Kant, teach philosophy.

Really, though, I think all this talk about colonialism and critical context and Africa/Asia is just a pure front.  These affirmative action snowflakes want easy material in what will seem on their transcripts to be difficult courses.

Snowflakes are white too. These brownstains are misappropriating our color.

This is good. This is a GOOD THING. They have been lying to Whites saying that going to these dessicated corpses of academia would give magic tickets to them. Now that they’ve taken the next step to “divershitty”, the Iron Law of Economics will make their long march through the institutions become a Death March.
I wonder how many Asian and Foreign students will want to pay to read African Philosophers? Not a lot, I’m guessing. When Sneezy Coats is the only sciency thing there, it’ll be the burned out ghetto we have come to expect from the Magical Urban Renewal of the (((enemy))).

OT So a couple of years ago right after the RFRA nonsense that made Pence a national figure a group of lefties and butthurt Republicans plastered these signs all over Indianapolis. I approached the leader of this rabble and sold him a rotted old monkey’s paw, which I assured him would grant his wish. Today it came true as Pence left Indy after the election of his successor…I wonder if they are happy with their purchase?

And I have not forgotten that, the way Pence and the Indiana Republicans started, then got cold feet, and backtracked so far that they wound up passing something which left the state worse off than when they started.

I couldn’t agree more, I was pissed at the time, but I think it taught him a lesson in apologizing and backtracking (He never apologized for anything Trump during the campaign, despite being asked every other day). It’s either full speed ahead or don’t bother opening the barn door. The IndyStar still hasn’t given up the ghost and keeps a full time special section of “LGBT Rights” on its opinion page. We’ve got to educate these hicks about the benefits of surrendering to the LGBT agenda!

As I wrote at the time:

These kinds of issues, if you touch them at all, you have to pick a side, pick an agenda, stick with it, and see it through to its glorious or bitter end.

I’m more concerned that the Telegraph apparently has forgotten about the subjunctive.

From the article:

Erica Hunter, head of SOAS’s Religions and Philosophies department, said the union’s viewpoint was “rather ridiculous”, adding: “I would firmly resist dropping philosophers or historians just because it was fashionable.”

Try to imagine an American academic speaking as clearly as that.

You might see this as lunacy and perhaps rightly so, but now that Racheal Genteal and her homies are coming in record numbers, how much philosophizing do you expect to happen at Ivy League Ape City? Sure they’ll end up broke, but get YT is apparently more important than a mere career. This Scorched Earth strategy has been used before. Why do I get the feeling the (((enemy))) may be getting ready to make a run for it?
