Don’t waste you…

Quote

Don’t waste your time trying to sort out the incomprehensible language academics consciously and subconsciously try to employ to exhaust and exclude the common person. If academics can’t make themselves intelligible to the common man, they can be ignored. It’s as simple as that.

If they can’t make themselves intelligible to the common man, they probably don’t understand what they are saying well enough themselves.

Aside

In the past, when a conservative faction like the one “led” by George W. Bush behaved too aggressively outright, the “antidote” was for a “softer” liberal faction to come into power, gain popularity and give the false impression that they have made things right again only by padding all the brutality with lip-service to humanitarianism.  This is the way it was in India during British occupation.  However, nearing the end of Britain’s rule in India, we also began seeing problems that false-liberalism couldn’t fix.

Right now, Obama and the liberals are showing us they may be the more aggressive and less honest faction in reality.  The current conservatives aren’t going to be any “softer.”

Again, it’ll be interesting to see what transpires from here on out.

(Amy Chua had no problem expounding on this conservative-liberal pendulum-swing that accompanies the demise of a hegemon in her book “Day of Empire.” Ironically (and perhaps not so ironically,) Chua herself is archetypal of this type of fake-liberalism and intellectualism.  She only discussed this scenario in relation to British India and made absolutely no mention of any US imperialistic crimes in the same book.  How will she discuss this problem for contemporary Western society when she is a part of the problem herself?

How Do You Solve a Problem like Amy Chua?

Chua is the type that will judge and look down on you if you are not part of a select clique considered (by themselves) to be well-bred and educated, but at the same time has infinite energy to make sure that only she and her children get to enjoy such privileges.

Do you want other human beings to be well-bred and well-educated or don’t you?  Pick one.  Because you can’t have both.
