I Stopped Teaching in the US Precisely Because of the Absence of Analytical Thinking

I'm glad I'm not the only one who noticed.

Why College Graduates Still Can’t Think

One of the commenters observes that business schools teach analytical, aka critical, thinking better than humanities programs do nowadays.  This is because the simplest worldview of Marxism, that society is always divided between victims and victimizers, has polluted the discipline.  Any objective observation is regarded as being supportive of a status quo that favors the victimizers.

It's unworkable gibberish when applied to either rational thought or reality.  Since Marxism is disinterested in either, as is obvious in its failure outside of university walls, all it has done is demolish an academic discipline that, in its true form, enabled this weblog editor to work in academia, ecclesia, business, and finance.
