    Academia's latest propaganda factory, the 'Cry Wolf' project

    The first thing a man will do for his ideals is lie. --Joseph Schumpeter
    Modern liberals and progressives have never been able to come to terms with the fact that some people just don't embrace their worldview--that is, that the state should be the primary instrument of social change.

    Advocates of limited government see centralized power as dangerous--not only in terms of threats to human liberty, but in terms of economic decline. Like Madison, we know that men are no angels. Progressives, on the other hand, cannot imagine a world without elites running things.

    Higher education - a cloister for "progressive" thinking - has always been the place where Utopian plans are conceived before being passed to the pamphleteers--and then tossed into the sausage grinder of government. But their methods are changing. There's a new twist on an old m.o. Call it "manufactured consensus."

    In that same vein comes the newly discovered "Cry Wolf" project, a merry band of progressive academics who have decided it's more effective to "construct a counternarrative" (read: make up a story) than to look for anything resembling truth.

    carpro, dear buddy, this water is too deep for an ape.
    I can't swim it.
    Can you take me to the shallower parts and show me the way to the beach ?
    thanks.

    Quotation thread?

    Patriotism is the virtue of the vicious.

    "Patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel," attributed to Samuel Johnson.

    I'm sorry you don't understand the significance of this activity.

    But these quotes kind of zero in on what the goals are with this project.


    IOW Using academia and the media as the purveyors of leftist propaganda that says that conservatives are always wrong, no matter what their stance on any given subject.

    It's just more of what has been going on for years, but academia is no longer bothering to even pretend to be unbiased institutions of learning, but simply a tool of the progressive movement.

    The "best liar" is just that, a liar.

    Nobody "wins".

    Liberal academia now has a plan to actually be the "best liars" they can possibly be.
