Western University Campuses Are Hell Holes of "Social Justice"

Interesting conversation with Jonathan Haidt.

I am actually reading his book now "The Righteous Mind: Why Good People Are Divided By Politics and Religion". It's very good, and it was recommended by Ben Shapiro on his excellent daily pod cast.

It's funny, I had never heard of Haidt before last week and now he's sort of everywhere on my radar. Isn't it weird when that happens?

Anyway, the whole interview is very good, but the one nugget that really jumped off the page for me is that he refuses to donate to Yale University because of its aggressive, nonsensical social justice malarky.

Voting with your chequebook is really the only power that alumni and other concerned citizens have over universities. The bloated administrators cannot be shamed, nor can their leftist establishment professor base. Cash is king. Only when they are hit in the pocket, is there any real hope for change.
