How The University of Colorado Boulder's "Hip Hop Studies" Certificate Proves Higher Education is Worthless

To be honest, I don't need to explain "how."

The average person of average intelligence can immediately deduce why a "certificate" in what is a hobby or enjoyable activity is worthless.

The average person of average intelligence should be FUMING that an "accredited institution" like the U of Colorado system would dare waste the taxpayers money and the students' tuition on such a joke of a class.

And the slightly smarter than average person would realize this is actually racist as it will disproportionately attract black students who - having already come from a disadvantaged background - will waste precious time and money on a "certificate" that will not only fail to land them a job, but make they look like complete idiots to the rest of the world (a la - "hey, look at this kid.  This idiot actually put "Hip Hop Certificate" on his resume!")

I have long ago given up on getting younger people, let alone their unfathomably student parents, to wake the fuck up and stop blowing $500 a credit on degrees and classes that are completely worthless.  But if you are so inclined to either save yourself from a worthless degree or save your child from the same, please consider buying the book below:

The Millennial Suicide Rate Cometh

With the expansion of bandwidth pulling me into the world of podcasting and now video/streaming, much like a journalist of old who started in the papers and got pulled into radio and television, my "career" has largely been the same.  And while I try to bang out some really good posts, there just isn't the time in the day, and so I try to do one a week.  Emphasis on try.

However, and additionally, sometimes important topics just don't need a full, eloquent, and thorough post.  Sometimes they just need some bullet points and a chart, and I can rely on the intelligence of my readers to get the point or fill in the finer points, thus "deaths from despair" by age cohort.

"Deaths by despair" are considered a suicide-lite type of death.  Including suicide itself, "Deaths By Despair" also include death by alcoholism, drugs, suspected suicide, etc. etc.  And in this particular study/chart above, they have decided to focus on white people as the general trend in suicide is that EVERYBODY is committing suicide, but whites more in particular.

However, ignore that this chart is about whites, and let us focus on the ago cohort, and what you will find is younger people are dying earlier due to "despair" as they approach middle age, Gen X'ers currently leading the charge.

And while we can all speculate as to why this is (I would throw in an official hatred of/and bigotry towards white people on the part of education, government, schools, media, and above all else white women (some white women's hatred of white men is especially pronounced, but this is a topic for another time)), what I argue is it has been replacing traditional human roles with the government, and humans (programmed by 2 million years of evolution) don't know how to handle this roughly 60 year old experiment where their roles are ultimately replaced.

Men are particularly affected as their whole point and purpose in life has been replaced by a government check.  While women are hopelessly angry and frustrated trying to find out why they're not happy being spinsterific, barren, man-hating, corporate slaves as they date their soyboy democrat-voting pansy of a man.  And various institutions in America (school, media, government, internet) are driving them further apart, even weaponizing them against one another, all for a hate-filled ideology that can be described as only "feminism." 
But what's particularly entertaining is how people act "shocked" or "don't know why" people are offing themselves either explicitly through suicide, or suicide lite measures like drinking or despair.  You've literally taken fish out of water and then wonder why they're not growing wings to fly (*cough cough* - kind like feminists expecting women to be men and being confused/angry when they fail).  And people even get pissed if the fish dare to die on them in an environment that just wasn't made for them.  
You took away the only thing that matters in humans lives - love - and you replaced it with a government check.

But American's stupidity aside, this leaves a foreboding trend for Millennials and their on-deck generation, Gen Z.  For while Boomers and X'ers did vote for Reagan, or at least weren't looking to get people fired for having a different opinion on the internet, the Millennials have doubled down, in spades, with all that and a bag of chips on socialism.  And though Trump is president, in their personal lives and the parts of their lives that matter most - love - younger generations have made their socialist politics ALL they have in their lives.  Young women do not put men at the center of their lives, because that would not be being a proper women or feminist.  Men have retreated from their traditional duty to provide and support their theoretical wives/families because...well...why would they?  That's the government's job.  And they're all more focused on being good environmentalists, supporting the right causes, eating only farm to table, and recycling than they are being the best person they can be to the best person they can find in their lives.  All the Millennials have is their politics, not love, not even comradery, which is kind of like not only take a fish out of water, but chucking it into outer space.

Thus, with some confidence, I predict this trend will continue, if it hasn't already.  In the book "How Not to Become a MIllennial" an entire chapter is dedicated to the horrific and rapidly decaying mental health of the Millennial generation.  And corroborating those statistics are additional statistics that show record use of psychotherapeutic drugs to treat anxiety, depression, bi-polar, etc. etc.  And with youth rapidly leaving the now-approaching 40something Millennials, whatever idealism and hope this youth afforded them will leave, leaving them highly susceptible to despair and the premature death it causes.

I am now becoming an old man who has dedicated the majority of his life to economics.  But economics is ensconced with the largely study of philosophy.  And for the life of me, I cannot understand why people the past 4 generations have chosen a life of socialism, taxes, commutes, slavery, identity politics, virtue signaling, careers, and plain ole politics over love.  

You think life is about going vegan?
You think life is about getting masters degrees and slaving away for 50 years?
You think your political posts on facebook are more important than spending time with your kids or going to the gym for your spouse?

Good, you all deserve despair and you all deserve to die.  Because to be honest, death would be preferable to the miserable lives you're going to live with such warped priorities.

Why I Need Feminism

The Forced Lemonade Stand

Let me tell you the horrifically inefficient, expensive, and painful route I took to get here.

First, there was wasting 13 years in K-12 school where I learned nothing, was taught nothing, and was a solid C student as my mind was put to sleep by low-IQ, overpaid babysitters in the form of teachers.

Then, like every idiot raised by Boomers, I went to college because I would fail miserably and never amount to anything unless I attended otherwise. 

I additionally and idiotically majored in something I enjoyed, and though ostensibly "Finance" was an employable degree on paper, it was a completely worthless business degree that nearly all business degrees are.

Still, I was good at finance, math, and economics, so good in fact I graduated 5th in my class while working full time and graduating 6 months early, AND with no parental or govermental support.  This doomed me to keep trying to work in finance/banking as I mistook the corrupt, inefficient banks I worked for as bad luck, and not something endemic to the entire industry I was employed in.  It would not be until the housing crash of 2008 would I realize that while my degree was an otherwise fine degree, it was only employable in a dysfunctional industry and I had effectively wasted 17 years of education.

Since my employment was never secure (always ramming heads with management about not approving doomed-to-fail loans, etc.) I had to be on the constant lookout for alternative forms of employment, ranging from everything from security work to ballroom dance instruction to online classes to being a radio show host.  But a more curious development was the advent of self-publishing, wherein I was able to predict the housing collapse of 2008 and published my first book.

This "forced entrepreneurship" (along with increasing bandwidth on the internet) was unknowingly laying down the foundation for what would become my "career" today.  Once I learned that the Boomer managerial class had no clue what it was doing (bank bailouts, forcing everybody to go to college, their own failure to save for retirement, their olympic performance in divorce, etc.) an incredible anger, rage, hatred and desire for revenge took over.  And after having not one thing I was promised by my Boomer predecessors materialize in my life, I would never again "do what I was told," but would instead lash out at this generation by speaking the truth, pointing out their lies, mocking and ridiculing the hypocrites of society, and spitting in their face.  This was my now my "new profession," unprofessional as it was.

Thinking such blunt-force-trauma-truth would ensure I would never be employed again, it had quite the opposite effect.  Turns out many people were also sick and tired of being lied to by parents, boomers, politicians, and their teachers.  Like me they had gone down a tortuous path of doing what they were told, never getting what they were promised, and realizing they had wasted nothing short of their youth.  And though not the economist or credit analyst career I had hoped to have, these people would pay to hear the truth, hear how to salvage their lives, how to make it count, or just hear me rant and ridicule against the boomers, teachers, socialists, professors, journalists, and politicians who led them to waste their lives.  This resulted in a suite of books that sell pretty well for a self-published guy, cathartic podcasts that at least provide sanity to its listeners, and a consulting company that is the only consulting company in the world that markets truth. 
It wasn't the career I was aiming for, but it was a Lee Iococcan turn around story that made one heck of a lemonade stand out of a bucket full of lemons.

Sex Is Economics

But while it was predominantly economics, finance, and politics that forced me down this path, an interesting phenomenon occurred.  Yes, people were interested in their personal finances, wealth, and overall economic situation.  Yes, people were terribly worried about the housing crash and the ensuing "Great Recession.".  And one of my books pre-addressed one of the largest financial crises/lies-told-by-boomers to face the US (student loans).  But understand there was a much larger, underlying economic force driving all of these financial concerns and phenomenon.  A force that was responsible for nearly all economic actions, all economic production, and all my clients' questions.  And though it took some time to suss it out, it made crystal clear sense once it did.  Because all my clients' questions were not so much about "401k's" or "which degree should I major in" or "what lie did Boomers tell me this time," but something much more fundamental.  So fundamental in fact, it's what drives TOTAL GLOBAL ECONOMIC PRODUCTION, even the existence of the human race.  And so whether the questions were are about retirement, personal budgeting, or how to buy a car, all of them were ultimately about one thing and one thing only - sex.

Admittedly, this large, underlying economic force is more than just mere "sex."  It certainly is the sex that leads to family formation which keeps the human race going.  And without this human race there would be no "economics," just animals eating each other on the planet.  We could also say "love" as it is love that prompts men to propose, start families, and propagate the species (though with divorce at 50% and illegitimate births at 42%, I'd argue it's more "sex" than "love" or "family").  But regardless of how euphemistically you want to spin it, "sex/love/family creation" was the number one thing on nearly all my clients' minds.  Nearly ALL of their decisions led to that.  And since sex/love/family is really the only thing for humans to do on this planet before they die, the pursuit of the opposite sex is the epitome of economics.  And so what you would have noticed over the course of my haphazard "career" was a slow shift in focus from student loan bubbles, housing bubbles, federal deficits, and recessions to that of the pursuit of the opposite sex - namely men pursuing women (because - let's just be honest - men take agency in this pursuit, women, just sit there).

I understood this "ultimate economic" pursuit because I am afterall a man.  But what I couldn't understand was the volume of men seeking my advice. Why there were so many men not only asking me about financial matters (which in reality was ultimately to "get da girlz"), but twice that asking me about women?  What also confused me was just how bad, misinformed, and otherwise completely hopeless many of these men were when it came to women.  Many of them were fat, never hit the gym, lived at home, and the worst cardinal sin, some were short!  But no matter how desperate, they kept coming in droves, asking me time and time again: 
"How to get da girlz?"

Inevitably, this never-ending volume of clueless men started to anger me because there seemed no end to them.  Additionally, I was enraged at the intellectual-dishonesty of some of these men as they cowardly and vainly searched for ways to get women, without putting in the necessary work of hitting the gym, getting in shape, making good money, and working on their personalities/charm.  They wanted to "get da girlz," but were too lazy to work for it, hoping I had the cheat code and would share such a thing with them if I had.  Regardless, as my contempt started to grow for this cabal of men seeking to get girls by "avoiding the gym," it wasn't until I had a spate of young men who came from particularly disadvantaged backgrounds did I realize what was really going on.  And these unfortunate men all had something in common and this commonality explained their utter cluelessness when it came to women.  They all hailed from single-mom homes.  And not just single-mom homes, but broken homes where their mothers would do anything from:
  • stealing their childrens' social security numbers to open up credit cards in their names
  • threaten to kick their children out of the home if they joined the military or entered college as they would lose section 8 housing allowances
  • threaten to disown their children if they didn't send money back ome
  • to bring abusive new boyfriends/husbands into the family when these men were boys
Admittedly, these were the more-extreme cases.  But it highlighted a common variable across nearly all my male clients - they were all raised by their moms.  Not necessarily single-moms, but "raised by moms" as the father could be present in the household, but the children still predominantly raised by the mother.

Here, nearly every client of mine fell into this spectrum.  Be it an abusive, ghetto trash single-mom kicking her son out because he wanted to attend college and she would lose section 8 money.  Or the presumably squeaky clean nuclear family where behind closed doors the ball-busting wife called the shots as the timid husband let her have the reigns to the family in fear of divorce.  Regardless of where they fell, they were all raised by their moms.  But it wasn't just my clients who fell into this spectrum, but nearly all generations of men today, as another interesting, underlying sociological force was at play.  And this underlying, sociological force was what was driving all these helpless, clueless men to my front door and in the incomprehensible numbers I was witnessing.



Much as you may or may not detest feminism, you have to give it one thing.  It's certainly popular and very successful within western civilization.  Nearly every woman (and man) will claim to be a feminist.  Law has been created to give women preferential treatment in society via affirmative action, lowering of standards, and quotas.  They're still not getting drafted.  They receive 5 times the amount in scholarship aid for college.  They have total and complete control of reproduction.  And the judicial system is heavily biased in their favor when it comes to family/divorce (check out the "Duluth Model").

And this says nothing of the social acceptance, celebration, even enforcement of feminism at nearly every stage and aspect in western life.

You cannot hear anything but applause and accolades about women from kindergarten-till-death.  Women are encouraged to do anything and everything, with no regards to reality or feasibility.  Corporate America, the education system, media, and all our institutions celebrate women and feminism.  Single moms are heroic.  Fat women are beautiful.  We even tax our population to create entire educational programs and work programs so that women can be employed in completely fabricated industries (social work, academia, non-profits, activists, etc.) so society's unproductive women can feel good about themselves too.  Feminism has gotten so popular, so imperative, that when Blasey-Ford accused Justice Kavanaugh of sexual assault, we were told to ignore the lack of evidence, let alone the concept of innocent-until-proven-guilty, and just "believe all women."  Feminism is not just "very popular."  It is totally and completely popular as it now trumps reality, sanity, and ethics in many cases.

But there are costs to such a skewed, warped, and ultimately, wrong, environment.  You can't have a binary species where one sex is exalted and the other vilified, one sex celebrated and the other ignored, or one sex living at the expense of the other.  Because no matter what hack social theories these social scientists and feminists pulled out of their privileged suburbanite asses these past 50 years, it doesn't undo 2 million years of human evolution.  Men and male nature have to be considered for society to function.  And so what has happened is our matriarchal-skewed society has raised generations of men in the eyes of what women want...just not what they want to fuck or fall in love with.
And I need to state that again, because it's very important.
Feminism has successfully raised several generations of men that they want, NOT what they want to fuck or fall in love with.  And here is where the men are beating a path to my Lucy-Lemonade-Stand door.  
Because men are truly not interested in becoming what women want.  They only want to fuck and (maybe if the right girl comes along) fall in love.  But men make the understandable error of thinking if they become what women say they want, they will get laid and ultimately find love.  When in reality, feminism is so myopic, and never considers men in their social science calculations, that the prescription they give men to fill is wrong, and thus does not tickle the sexual fancies of women or compel them to fall in love with said men.  Thus, you have a bunch of agreeable, sensitive, effeminate, politically correct, doormats.  Not the honest to god real men women want to fuck or fall in love with.  But precisely what feminists ordered.

This confuses the effeminate, politically correct doormats because from the age of 0 on they've had their:

teachers (mostly women, btw)
television, and

tell them to be agreeable, effeminate, politically correct doormats.  And so when they ask out dozens, hundreds, arguably thousands of women over their lives, but none of these women go out with them, let alone fuck them, let alone fall in love with them, they are horrifically confused.  They were TOLD to be sensitive, kind, and nice.  They were told to be socialists or socialist lites.  They were told to defer to women in nearly every regard.  And never once were they told to go to the gym.  Much like every generation under the tutelage of the baby boomers, they did precisely what women told them to do, but were never delivered anything they were promised.  And so ultimately confused, sexually frustrated, and running low on time, they inevitably search the internet for answers...

which lands them at my doorstep.

And I get to charge them $100/hour to tell them what society, feminists, their mothers, their sisters, their fathers, their professors, their teachers, and the politicians won't tell them.  The truth.

Look on the Bright Side

To this day it still angers me the totality of lies we tell young men and women about the sexes.  Feminism has ruined the best thing in men's and women's lives (each other) for one another.  Feminism is in practice the hatred and discrimination against men.  Feminism has caused immeasurable psychological frustration amongst men and women.  And on simple principle, it grinds my gears when a group of people use a trait they were born with (not earned) to extrapolate special treatment at the expense of society.  Thus, like all lies, feminism is a disease, it is a cancer, it is a scourge upon society, and it has cost generations of the most important thing in life - love.

But bad as they are, scourges are a benefit to some, and not just the individuals propagating the scourge.

For example, crime. 

Unfortunate and costly as crime is, it is a fact of human nature.  Some humans (much like feminists) are going to want to advance themselves at the expense of innocent others.  But in crime being a scourge upon society, society reacts to it with the formation of a legal system, a judicial system, and police.  And though these people/systems are not contributing anything new or good to society, they are preventing bad things from happening to society  And though we'd like to live in a world without crime, a consolation prize to the fact we can't is millions of people are therefore employed as a consequence of crime.

The same thing can be said of disease.

Nobody likes cancer.  Nobody likes the common cold.  And certainly nobody likes COVID.  But without these poxes upon society, we would have no doctors, no nurses, no surgeons, nor medical researchers.  And since we have no choice in whether or not we live in a world without disease, we thankfully have medical professionals there to fight disease.  And as a benefit to them, they find gainful and productive employment.

And this is why I desperately need feminism.

Because for all of its drawbacks, for all of the pain its inflicted upon society, for all of the generations of women it's duped into wasting their lives on careers, commutes, and taxes, instead of love, children, and spouses, like cancer, it's an undeniable fact feminism is here.  It is a reality.  It is a pox currently scourging society.  And while originally I did want to become an economist, helping society advance itself to incredible standards of living, eliminating poverty, and extending life expectancies, life had different plans for me.  And thus instead of pouring over spreadsheets and doing mathematical calculations while programming boring computer models, I get to...

yell at the internet.

Instead of commuting to an office, paying for parking, and working in a cubicble, I get from home in my pajamas after I wake up at 10AM and have my morning coffee.

Instead of sitting in meetings getting yelled at because the numbers didn't come in the way my corrupt boomer boss needed them to come in at so he could collect a send me thank you letters for preventing them from majoring in a worthless degree.

And instead of having to sit through CPE classes, MBA courses, buck for promotion, and tolerate mandatory "diversity/sexual harassment training," I get to...grab a cigar, sit at a bar, and outline my next book warning men and women about the future lies feminism is guaranteed to be telling them in the future.

Yes.  Society is going to hell in a hand basket.
Yes.  Feminism is ruining the lives of millions of people, women especially.
Yes.  I don't produce any new, advancing, or of progress to society.  My career is simply preventing bad shit from happening to society.

But if it weren't for feminism, I wouldn't have the great job I got now.

Thankfully (or if you have ethics "unfortunately"), it looks like I got life-long employment.  Feminism is as strong as it ever was and young people today swallow it whole.  Gen Z men are looking just as "soy-y" as their Millennial siblings.  And Gen Z women just as tatted up, purple haired-feminist as their Millennial sisters.  Younger generations are majoring in stupid subjects at the same 80% rate as previous generations.  And all young Americans are being brainwashed to value themselves based on traits, politics, and not accomplishments.  As in generations past, teachers, parents, guidance counselors are doing the same shitty job they've always done raising the young boys and girls today who will become the future tomorrow.  And it is a guarantee today's mothers will be divorcing today's fathers at rates on par with boomers, destroying today's young children in the process.  And through all these lies, chaos, feminism, broken homes, student debt, impoverishment, divorce, and just plain evil, will come a consistent stream of horribly pained and confused clients.  And they will be so pained and confused, they will become desperate enough to question everything they were told by feminists, socialists, parents, and teachers, they will search some key questions on the internet, and walk into my digital office more than happy to pay my fee to make the pain go away.

I want to thank the feminists.
I want to thank the boomers.
I want to thank the single mothers and deadbeat dads.
I want to thank the marxist teachers.
I want to thank the usurious professors who charged their students $600/credit for worthless degrees.
I want to thank the socialists.

I want to thank all of you.  Because without you, but especially the feminists, I'd have to work a real job.

"Achieving Minimalism: Theory and Practice - The Key to Happiness and Success in Life"


Good News Everyone!

After two months of taking notes, outlining, rehearsing, recording, and finally, programming, my seminar on minimalism is now available for sale.

There are just two minor problems.

One, if you've followed me for a while you won't have much use for this class because you likely already know what's in the class.  Yes, there are some other new insights and epiphanies, but if you're already a minimalist, you spend less than you make, and you're adequately contributing to your IRA, it's not going to be of any benefit to you.

Two, the price tag is $599 and yes, that is very, very expensive. 

I priced it at that level because I am greedy and like any other economic agent I want to maximize profits.  However, I also priced it that way because if you are not a minimalist then paying $599 to:

stop spending more than you make,
get out of debt,
better manage your time,
end your commute,
improve your mental health,
have a fully funded retirement,


just plain ole tell your boss to fuck off

is a steal.  And a paltry $599 to get your financial act together, in the grand scheme of things, is a bargain. Besides, if there's anything I've learned in life it's that people don't pay attention or make changes in their lives unless there is pain involved.  And $600 is a lot of pain.  Almost enough to make people pay attention and actually TAKE ACTION IN THEIR LIVES AND DO SOMETHING.

Therefore, this class is really for three different groups of people:

One, those of you who are new to my blog/podcast/youtube channel and don't have the time or inclination to comb through all my works to compile my overall philosophy on minimalism.

Two, people who are here but still need a swift kick in the ass to get their financial (and time management) life together (and trust me, the seminar does do PRECISELY that).

And, three, people outside the Ole "Capposphere" which is my main target as I'm trying to expand my reach (so if you know somebody who could benefit from this, please refer them).

Regardless, my apologies for the lack of content creation these past two weeks as I was working on this project.  And my further apologies if this class is likely of no additional value to veteran Cappycappites.  But if you kindly would recommend this class to people you think might benefit from it, or if you yourself could perhaps do with spending less than you make, consider taking the class yourself.

Many thanks,

Why Men Need to Accept Big is Beautiful

This is an important one for the boys out there who are sick and tired of seeing nothing but fat chicks to date, not to mention get furious over being called 'sexist' for not finding fat chicks hot.  You need to realize the "fat movement" is a drug that NONE of these girls are ever going to sober up from.  The drug is too powerful, too intoxicating, and going off of it would result in them waking up to (and therefore living in) a life they simply can't handle.  And so no matter how true the fact "big is not beautiful" is, it doesn't matter in their minds.  Merely agree, pat them on their heads, and move on.  Spare yourself the frustration trying to argue with their heroin addicts.

The Father Could Not Be Reached for Comment

I'll just leave this here.

How to Get Along with Your Professors

This is a guest essay from our friend Alex at Academic Composition.  Consider hiring his services or consider working for him.

Controversial Essay Topics: How Not To Offend Your Professor

“It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it” Aristotle

At Academic Composition, we offer a variety of academic services and it is our mission to support your throughout all of your classes, regardless of how basic or sophisticated your courses may be. Whether you are majoring in engineering or communications, you will have to take a healthy dose of “general education” classes. Typically, you will need to complete a number of English courses, a few on cultural studies, some on history and your university will probably require you to complete a number of seemingly bizarre classes that probably do not belong in a university. Do not be surprised if the professor seems to be pushing a political agenda instead of teaching you how to think critically, indeed, it is not unheard of for an English instructor to lecture students on Maoism instead of teaching them how to analyzing literary themes. In this day and age, many professors of literature believe that most of the classical authors such as Shakespeare, John Milton, William Butler Yeats and other giants of English literature were sexist, racist, homophobic, transphobic and so on.

Recently, a number of Berkeley ( students staged a protest asserting that a “White man’s Canon” will never do justice to the oppressed people of color and LGBTQ. These students demanded for the classical texts to be replaced with books written by transgender authors. For example, they demanded for Shakespeare’s Hamlet to be removed from the curriculum and replaced with “Transgender Warriors: Making History, from Joan of Arc to Dennis Rodman”. In his timeless poem, the

“Invictus”, William Ernest Henley famously wrote “I am the master of my fate, I am the captain of my soul” and self-determination is an inalienable human right. There is much to be said for a person who aspires to be true to themselves, irrespective of their gender, race, ethnicity or socio-economic class.

The desire to control one’s destiny is a noteworthy human drive, perhaps even the most commendable of them all: this is the desire that liberated Europe from the dark ages and ushered in the Enlightenment era. Indeed, a person can only be praised for their desire to live their life in their own way, as long as they do not infringe on the freedom of others to do likewise. Tolerance is a lofty social value and deserves to be guarded with the utmost ferocity, as it is the cornerstone of a civilized society. Societies that are truly free can survive only if an open debate and an uncensored exchange of ideas can take place, and it is our civic duty to refrain from silencing others who wish to express a view that we disagree with. However, tolerance has its limits and one modern Italian writer put it well, “Tolerance reaches the limit of mutual respect, then it is surpassed!”

Indeed, most Americans are tolerant and the overwhelming majority of college students are willing to engage in a respectful conversation with a person whose views they do not share. While they may respect the freedom of choice of a transgender person, they can also appreciate the point of view of a religious person who disapproves of such freedom, but tolerates it, nonetheless. Indeed, the meaning of tolerance is to get along with a person whose views we do not share, regardless of how strongly we may disapprove of them. This appears to be a little more than common-sense and you may be wondering why on earth we are lecturing you on tolerance. If everybody understands what it means to get along with people whose views we do not share, what is the point of discussing tolerance in the first place?

Be that as it may, not everyone shares the majority view of Americans who may self-identify as moderates who are either right-leaning or left-leaning. The American citizenry is famous for its centrist tendencies, but the elites of academia do not approve of this position. In most departments of social sciences across America, liberals outnumber conservatives by a staggering ratio of 30 to 1 (

In some universities, that ratio is as high as 60 to 1 and the more elite the university is, the higher that ratio becomes. Furthermore, professors of elite universities are more likely to self-identity as the “far-left” and over 25% of them consider themselves Marxists.

Surveys have repeatedly shown that professors are unlikely to support the tenure of a conservative colleague, irrespective of their skill-level or value to the organization. The modern social psychologist, Jonathan Haidt has extensively researched the rise of intolerance in American university campuses and devoted much of his career to promoting the diversity of viewpoint on campus ( His conclusion is unequivocal: there is very little tolerance across college campuses for even the centrist viewpoints that are at odds with the politically correct ideological orthodoxy.

In light of these troubling developments, empirical evidence has repeatedly shown that even the brightest of people often tend to succumb to the fallacy of the strawman. In other words, we tend to routinely misrepresent the nuances of a point of view that we disagree with. We then engage in the cognitive mechanism of “substitution” and respond to a simplified version of our opponent’s point of view ( In “Thinking: Fast and Slow”, Daniel Kahneman addressed the substitution problem in detail and evidence has conclusively shown that the exceptionally bright people are sophisticated when it comes to finding good arguments for their position, but they struggle as much as everyone else when it comes to finding support for views they disagree with.

To be absolutely certain, the “my side bias” is pervasive in academia and while professors love to pay lip service to tolerance and at the same time strive to avoid offending the most sensitive person in the class, this is an incredibly difficult balancing act to pull off. At the end of the day, they will err on the side of political correctness rather than tolerance because their career depends on it. Countless professors have lost their jobs for making seemingly innocuous remarks that no reasonable person can be offended by ( The recent termination of the NYU professor Michael Rectenwald is the case in point, who cynically summarized his predicament as “Academic freedom is great, as long as you don’t use it!”

While it may seem tempting to chastise the intolerant professors, one must understand that their job is not at all similar to what one may face in a corporate environment. In a real job, you may leave and find another one and no-one will blame you if you do so after a year or even just six months. It also goes without saying that most of the co-workers who surround you now may not be there a year from now, so your whole livelihood does not depend on how well you get along with them. Yet, imagine if you were stuck around those same people for 20 to 30 years? You would be a nervous wreck: you would be on constant vigil for what you say, what you do in your spare time, who you are seen with, and most importantly, whose papers you cite

in a sanctimonious act of solemn worship. That is exactly what happens in academia: when a scholar of the humanities accepts a position as an “assistant professor”, he will be up for tenure within six years. At that point, he or she either gets the job for life or they are fired. If they choose to quit at any point, their prospects of finding work at another university will be extremely scarce: academia is a conformist and a tightly knit community where gossip carries even more weight than it does in small town of rural Alabama.

It is worth noting that the power structure of academia has been modeled on the medieval guild of the Catholic Church. Even the Catholic Church itself has been modernized and numerous members of that community enjoy certain freedoms of expression, no such reform has been possible at the university. Despite the progressive veneer of the academic milieu and the perfunctory tribute to tolerance academics like to pay, the university is one of the most archaic, reactionary and intellectually repressive of institutions known to man. You would be very well-advised to take that into consideration and to toe the party line. To do that, you will need to understand the unspoken rules of academic discourse and heed to them under all circumstances.

1. Always write from a left-leaning point of view: As a reasonable person with an open-mind, you may lean to the left, but you may not always agree with every progressive viewpoint out there. Save yourself the aggravation of having your work picked apart for the smallest of errors. If you simply write from a left-wing perspective, your work will be held to a much lower standard and you will get a free pass on all sorts of minor mistakes that would never have gone unnoticed, had you written your paper from a centrist or let alone a right-leaning point of view.

2. Brush up on your gender pronouns: Familiarize yourself with the work of Leslie Feinberg. Figure out how many genders your professor accepts and try to memorize

as many as you can. The transgender ideology is the holy grail of the civil religion of the academic left, do not blaspheme against it. If you name-drop Leslie Feinberg or reference any other scholars of similar ideological persuasion, you will score points with your PC professor.

3. Pay homage to Radical Feminism: Do not criticize a feminist point of view and never mention a feminist thinker even in a slightly negative light, that is a big “no-no” in academia. Do not praise the traditional feminine virtues such as compassion, politeness, nice social manners and so on. Never say that women value these things or that they should do so, such talk is completely out of place in a radical feminist environment and will never be tolerated. Feminists categorically deny the existence of gender differences and see them as “social constructs” that are a result of “oppressive patriarchy”. While some of them may engage in a behavior that may come across as “female chauvinism”, it is unclear how they can simultaneously assert female superiority while denying the existence of gender differences. While that may seem like an apparent contradiction, it is far too lofty and erudite of a matter for small minds like ours to ponder.

4. Genuflect at the altar of diversity and multiculturalism: Never criticize any culture at all. “Culturism” will not fly here. Do not make any remarks underscoring the differences between people of varying nationalities, culture, language or ethnicity. If you dare to make the slightest of comments on how this or that culture may be flawed, you run the risk of being accused of perpetrating ‘hate speech’, which could carry grave consequences. Some universities may expel you for that and even if you try to praise another culture, you will be accused of cultural appropriation, which is as

grave of a sin as demeaning another culture. That is why Yale students recently chastised their peers for wearing Halloween costumes. Avoid praising or criticizing any culture for any reason, no matter how well-intentioned your comment may be, it will most likely be taken out of context and misunderstood with the implication that you are “racist”. In light of the fact that culture itself is a taboo topic in academia, one may understand how the unholy alliance between radical feminists and radical Islamists has emerged. Again, this is another complex matter that is far too lofty for small minds like ours to ponder.

5. Pay close attention to the prescribed parlance of the politically correct faction that your professor may subscribe to. That is an evolving matter and the pantheon of the oppressed is home to many gods, that is why it is never clear which of them need to be worshipped at any given time. You can never be truly sure who has the upper-hand: the transgender elites, the gay rights activists, the radical feminists, the supporters of the otherkin or somebody else altogether. Pay close attention to the PC movement that your professor may identify with. If you are not sure where their sympathies lie, avoid commenting on controversial altogether: go to great length to avoid saying anything that could even remotely be misconstrued as a “micro-aggression” against a certain group. For example, the term “flip-chart” may appear to be completely innocuous, yet numerous scholars in the humanities deem it to be extremely pejorative because it appears to contain a “micro-aggression” against Filipinos. Although it is next to impossible to find a single Filipino person who takes umbrage to the term “flip-chart”, it is important to keep in mind that while the PC view represents the position of 3-5% of the population, it is enormously popular

among the elites of academia who see themselves as superior to us, the benighted heathens like ourselves. We will never reach the front porch of the heavenly gates that stand before the Ivory Tower, that is a place of solemn worship and we will never be worthy of being on par with the dogs who are to be starved at the gate (that privilege is to be reserved for the adjunct professors, many of whom earn less than the fast food workers and a sizable portion of them are either on welfare or homeless). In short, you are not among the “elect”, so do not question their judgment. Just as God reveals Himself in mysterious ways, the wisdom of the academic clerics is inscrutable to the mortal sinners and should never be challenged.

If you follow these five rules, you will stand a much better chance of doing well on your assignment. Of course, being on the “right side of history”, as Karl Marx used to say, will give you considerable advantages over those who were left reprobate and will suffer eternal perdition, you still have minimal standards of academic rigor to fulfill. Grade inflation is a crude reality of life in modern academia and standards continue to fall quite precipitously. However, you still have basic scholarly responsibilities to fulfill such as writing in a grammatically correct manner, avoiding logical fallacies, finding reliable sources and maintaining a flowing narrative. We will cover than in our subsequent discussions, but being on the right side of history is 50% of the battle. Once you off on the right foot with your professor, the rest is a matter of elementary academi
