@TallAnonThe people they are referring to are more socialist than liberal.

@ecfresh"That isn’t freethinking at all."That's it right there and there lies the danger. Colleges and universities are supposed to be homes to critical thinking but they encourgage the opposite.
@YHL6965IOW critical thinking and yes you are right.
I also think as long as you educate yourself on the topic and your not ignorant about you can be either conservative or liberal
There are simply not enough education provided to students that is conservative based, especially not in the US. Being conservative is about respecting eternal realities that always come back to us, but even American conservatives are actually classical liberals who support only capitalism.
I don’t necessarily agree with that because the only time I’ve ever learned specifically about Democrats and Republicans was in 7th grade civics. After that they tend to teach you the history behind the parties and not what the parties actually represent and stand for. It would be very controversial is schools started going into to more depth about the parties because teachers are bound to accidentally slip or teach about their personal preference. For example if your favorite teacher says she’s a liberal then you would be like “I want to be a liberal as well because my favorite teacher is a liberal”. I feel like when you decide which party you want to represent you have to do your personal research and see if those values fit the same values you have as a person. The schooling system in America tends to leave out important parts of education of both sides of the spectrum, that’s why I think it’s good to do your own research
Ever seen statistics that say those who are higher educated tend to have more liberal views? Thats because higher education is ridden with left wing nonsense.
Politics is not taught in school so those stats have nothing to do with the education system
Yes politics is thought in schools. Campus is where the next generation of CEO's lawyers, doctors, teachers, engineers, social workers, doctors, psychologists are cultivated. The ideas in the back of their mind predict future political outcomes. Colleges are political battlegrounds.
Politics is only taught in college if you want a political major
No everyone is thought about intersectionality and white supremacy and left wing garbage like that. Mindsets of the youth determines the ultimate political outcome, every political faction is therefore invested in the education of youths.
@Grond21Colleges and universities are supposed to be the bastions of critical thinking yet they only encourage group think.
Unfortunately, a great deal of them do exactly this
@beetieThey're not liberals. They are socialists.
Well it's not my fault people are misusing the term liberal. But the post clearly states liberal. 😁
@beetieThe definition you were using sounds like classic liberals. Those were the liberals of the '60s and '70s. They do not exist today.
It is the oxford definition though. Language is evolving and dictionaries are hesitant. Yet i stand by my dictionary. Also I believe no person ever has been a real textbook liberal. Everyone has prejudices against something.
I’m a Christian, currently a junior in college. It can be challenging, but I’m sticking to my beliefs.
Haven’t failed yet
Good for you, stay strong :)
