Dispensable Diversity

We never needed the legion of diversicrat fifth wheels. Now, anyone who cares to look will see that they are getting paid for doing nothing.

The National Association of Scholars has always thought that large numbers of higher education administrators were—deadwood? Pernicious? Disastrous in their effects on students, as they sent them off on jolly Red Guardish consciousness-raising spring breaks? Some misbegotten laboratory experiment, that crossbred Tammany Hall, OGPU commissars, and the Golgafrincham Ark Fleet Ship B?

Universities for Sale

China’s Opportunity in a Time of Need

The higher education establishment will use the coronavirus emergency to double down on their dependence on China. This is precisely the wrong response.

Of course, everybody in the establishment takes the coronavirus emergency as a reason to push for what they already wanted. Higher education’s spokesmen want colleges and universities to keep on doing what they’ve already done—and to have the federal government pick up the tab. But neither the federal government nor the states have pockets deep up enough to answer every call for help—and with a depression suddenly looming, a great many calls for help are rising up. The universities will have to look elsewhere for money.

They already get a great deal of money from China.
