"The routine defamation of capitalism by armchair leftists in academe and the mainstream media has cut young artists and thinkers off from the authentic cultural energies of our time." - arrete

I never experienced that. I went off to college and never left. I attended both the University of Georgia and the University of Tennessee and never experienced this defamation ya'll believe exists. Not only did I attended two major Universities but afterwards I worked at the Uni. of GA School of Pharmacy and the Uni. of TN College of Vet Medicine. We never talked about politics nor was it mentioned. It just wasn't an issue.

In fact at the University of Tennessee one of my benefits was that I was allowed to take 8 semester hours for free every semester and I fully took advantage of that opportunity. At the end of my career I have over 300+ semester and quarter hours of classes spread out in several different disciplines. Still, politics, liberalism, etc. just wasn't an issue. Never mentioned.
