Are Professors And Other Academics Simply Out Of Touch With Reality!
Of course not all academics are out of touch with reality, but as I read, see and hear their statements, I can only come to the conclusion that the vast majority of them are completely out of touch with everyday reality.
They Are Well Educated But Are They Intelligent?
It’s far from easy to become a professor or even get an M.A. so one can probably safely assume that academics have the ability to study and learn.
But most seem unable to translate their high learning into an understanding of what is going on in the world around them.
How Did Academics Rate Obama?
In July 2, 2010 academics ranked President Barack Obama, the man who had overseen economic decline and ineptitude at handling the Gulf Oil spill, as the 15th greatest President in history.
That ranking puts President Obama above liberal icon Lyndon B. Johnson, who created Medicare and conservative icon Ronald Reagan.
George W. Bush was way down the list, and was considered one of the worst Presidents.
Bush was ranked well below Richard Nixon, who resigned the office in disgrace.
So What Is The Cause Of Academic Myopia?
New academics are surrounded by senior liberal professors and succumb to peer pressure in order to avoid being ostracized.
They mostly live in a world of political correctness.
They are more concerned about appearing open minded than they are about facing up to reality.
Political correctness is their God!
Please feel welcome to add more reasons, or to correct me in the comment’s section, and you don’t need to log in to post them.
Ranking President Obama after a year and a half of failure, as the 15th most effective President is a sign of how afraid liberal academics actually are of being truthful.
Academics simply cannot rank Obama at the rate at which he really performs because if they did, they would become outcasts in their academic circles and might even lose their jobs.
