An interesting event that Peter Boghossian hosted at Portland State — he invited students to share their experience of encountering leftist indoctrination in the classroom or otherwise on campus. It gives concrete examples of ideological indoctrination that, were I in their place, I would have vehemently resented. I can’t help thinking how lucky we were to grow up in an ideological vacuum, where the communist teachings were already busted, the new restorational christo-nationalism has not yet arrived to replace them; and everything was in flux, and relativist, and permitted; and we were free to just focus on academic subjects if we so wished. We were never told that we should not vote for Zyuganov, for example; or that we should call out our classmates who happened to admire Stalin (not that anyone that I knew did) or made gay jokes. We were not there to fight the injustice or right the wrongs. We were there to get a degree, acquire a profession or satisfy personal curiosity. And to have fun, I guess.
