Om modern utbildning

R R Reno i First Things

"Indeed, in the most progressive educational environments, we satisfy the desire for truth with critical theory itself, which is why it plays such an important role in contemporary higher education. The ability to probe beneath the surfaces of language and culture to show how they produce and manipulate beliefs becomes the sine qua non of the well-educated person. One is not wise in the sense of knowing how to live. One is critically astute and undeceived—and quite superior in knowing how others are in the grip of ideologies."

Bra citat ... det sekulära förnuftet skulle sannerligen behöva en stor portion misstänksamhet mot sig själv ... tala om förtryckande och intolerant (om man nu ska använda ett sånt ord) fundamentalism!
