The radical Left has taken over American society, top to bottom.
They have done this by poisoning children’s minds with pernicious propaganda.
But this shocking new development is already saving children from the grips of the radical Left.
There is a group of independent thinkers that have been pushing back against cultural Marxist propaganda for years now.
This group includes a diverse range of people. It includes academics such as Jordan Peterson and Jonathan Haidt. It includes journalists such as Bari Weiss, Glenn Greenwald, and Matt Taibbi. And it includes people with completely different backgrounds, such as podcaster and former reality show host Joe Rogan.
These individuals have been challenging the Left’s ubiquitous hold on modern American society, and they have been doing it effectively.
Now, a subset of them have taken on an entirely new project – building a new university that is committed to free speech.
They have decided to call it the University of Austin, since Austin, TX, has served as a headquarters of sorts for many of these anti-woke intellectuals.
And they have ambitious plans for this new university.
According to a report from Fox News, “University of Austin will have a ‘rigorous curriculum’ designed by ‘society’s great doers,’ in partnership with teachers and educators. The university plans to expose students to open inquiry with an ‘intrepid pursuit of truth.’”
The report continues, “The University of Austin’s website lays out a timeline for the college, indicating it plans to launch a graduate program in entrepreneurship and leadership in 2022, graduate programs in politics, applied history, education and public service in 2023, and establish the undergraduate college in 2024.”
The individuals most heavily involved in this project include Bari Weiss, who famously quit as editor of the New York Times over their suppressive anti-free speech policies, former Portland State professor Peter Boghossian, Harvard professor Arthur Brooks, author Andrew Sullivan, and others.
The President of the University of Austin will be Palo Kanelos, the former President of St. John’s College in Annapolis, MD.
There are already universities in existence that have a conservative-leaning, such as Liberty University in Virginia and Hillsdale College in Michigan.
But what makes the University of Austin different is that it is not trying to push a certain political viewpoint. Instead, it is opening up free speech to everybody: libertarian, conservative, liberal, moderate, capitalist, socialist, anarchist.
All viewpoints will be heard, all ideas will be challenged and examined, and all subjects will be debated. That’s what universities were built for, and that’s what they have failed to do in recent years.
Kanelos wrote a long article on Bari Weiss’s Substack explaining why he left his post as the President of St. John’s College in order to take on this new opportunity.
“Students will come to see such open inquiry as a lifetime activity that demands of them a brave, sometimes discomfiting, search for enduring truths,” Kanelos wrote.
Already, the authoritarian Left is attacking this project since it threatens their power.
But there is a whole generation of students that has been waiting for an opportunity like this, and the University of Austin may end up giving them the true education they deserve.
