"I know no safe depository of the ultimate powers of the society but the people themselves; and if we think them not enlightened enough to exercise their control with a wholesome discretion, the remedy is not to take it from them, but to inform their discretion by education. This is the true corrective of abuses of constitutional power." - Thomas Jefferson 1820

"There is a growing technology of testing that permits us now to do in nanoseconds things that we shouldn't be doing at all." - Dr. Gerald Bracey author of Rotten Apples in Education

Hypocrites in the Universities and Their Meaning of Academic Freedom

Apparently the teaching of Communism and Anti-American ideas to college students aren't confined to the University of Missouri in St. Louis (UMSL) and University of Missouri in Kansas City (UMKC).

It's an acceptable (and condoned) practice to teach communistic principles and recruit students to join the Communist party in class, but when it comes to teaching free-enterprise principles to students, that's not an acceptable course. Free speech and academic freedom apparently is a one-way street in the universities. Communists and Labor Leaders are to be studied and revered; the private job creators...not so much.

Maybe Communism works well if you don't have to pay off student loans, but if you are in debt, free enterprise might just work better for you.
