  1. This is precisely the problem with living in a Unified Field. The level of Consciousness is always determined by the lowest common denominator. That would be the person who is least conscious…

      gotta love them social justice warriors
      from both sides
      especially when they out each other.

      almost forgot – didn’t these 1st amendment freedom fighters in missouri get their university pres resigned when they blackmailed him with accusations of “white privalege” from a poor victim black kid who’s parents hold more than $20mil in the bank?

  2. So, on one side : dumbed down adults (following John Taylor Gatto) on the other side : mad scientists, mad bankers, etc, etc : where will be the enforcers ? Possibly home-schooled ?

  3. We can have here a situation which will spin out of control (more than it is already) : immature adults, lacking responsibility, will go in high-risk scientific experiments, the species be damned : more “Cern possible black holes”, more genetic experiments on human beings, more tweaks of any kind, no matter the risk – and when this comes to weapons …

  4. I once lived in NYC with one of the best university called the New Public Library. And when there brick and mortar bookstores and you could find books on any subject in any store you bought your newspapers and magazines and comicbooks. Try finding places like those today wish you luck.

    1. Yes, Robert, by all means, buy all his books. That will really change the world. And while you’re at it can you pick me up a French flag so I can wave it on a street corner? I want to change the world too. Oh, wait a minute. Don’t bother. I think it was Bush who told us that the right response to 9-11 was to go shopping…

        1. Thanks for the link. I’ve enjoyed many of your posts over the months but I’ve always felt this dark undercurrent of formulaic thinking behind them. Now I know why. It stretches the imagination to call Robert Service a poet because his technique is so bad. Be that as it may, conventional thinkers cannot write poetry anyway. Just ask Emily Dickinson or Edna St. Vincent Millay. They are incapable of thinking outside the box. That is why his “poem” is all about posturing. Posturing is the intellectual’s forte’. Just put a smile on your face and the whole world will change. In truth intellectuals do not want to change the system. They want to be entertained by it. Want to change the system? Do something radical! Go out and buy a book! Tell ’em George Bush sent you! Until this kind of thinking is addressed, people will continue to maintain the delusion that their presence in the world makes a difference. The problem with these delusions however, is that the rest of us are likely to find out the hard way that it doesn’t. Take care….

  5. “Unmitigated gall?” Lolsers, don’t fall off that high horse, it’s a long, long way down.

    Personally, I thought it was hilarious. Droll, laser-sharp, delightfully written and outright hilarious.

    And above all, true.

    1. The first step in responding to a post is to understand it. Unfortunately this requires the reader to examine his fixed ideas. Those who are unwilling to do that do what you you just did. They fabricate the writer’s post so they can attack it. It makes them feel good. How sad to see that perfectly intelligent people can yield to such low self-esteem. It’s a disease of our civilization which always leads to the same result: a break-down in communications, and eventually, war. In truth I had the same response to Fred Reed’s post as you did. I thought it was witty, insightful, and had a lot to offer. It was just your unwillingness to acknowledge your endless fixed ideas that led you to think otherwise. But I also took the time over the years to find out who Fred Reed is. I wonder if you did? He paints himself as an unbiased observer, but he is really nothing but a propaganda mouthpiece for various far right-wing military organizations like The Soldiers of Fortune, The Army, The Marines, City Police Departments, The Neo-Con War On Drugs, numerous Asian and Middle-Eastern Imperial Adventures, etc. So he is really every bit as much a product of this system as the technocrats he is criticizing. He is part of the system that invented our so-called “higher” education, and he is part of the system that perpetuates it. Funny how I did not notice him point any of this out in his essay. This is the signature of one who is a Neo-Con at heart. He’s got the fix and It’s always the other guy’s fault.

      1. I read the post, which I liked very much for the reasons I stated above. I don’t really care if he was Hitler’s love child, quite frankly, if what he has to say on the topic at hand is pertinent. As the old saying goes, broken clocks are still correct twice a day.

        Oh, and some of my best friends are NeoCons.

        1. Agreed Basta.

          All of this by lazer-eye:

          “But I also took the time over the years to find out who Fred Reed is. I wonder if you did?

          is completely irrelevant even if 100% true. The article stands on its own. Lazer-eye’s post is a waste of time.

          1. To Basta in re his last comment: this is precisely the problem with living in a Unified Field. The level of Consciousness is always determined by the lowest common denominator. That would be the one who is least conscious…

      2. Agree. He is attacking the wrong people who are victims of lower education. He should be attacking the whole cabal who have corrupted higher education by taking total control of what and how the universities should conform to government edicts. Place the blame where it should be. I’m always leery of just about anything a military person has say about education. db

  6. A work of unmitigated gall by one who who thinks of himself as a critic of The System but who has spent a lifetime inhabiting its darkest edges. That’s the trouble with Neo-Cons: The world always applies to the other guy. It never applies to them…
