How American Academia turned Leftist

By Christopher F. Rufo explains:
How the 1970s liberation movement led to today’s identity battles
It is an old story, but an amazing one, and tells a lot about academia turned Leftist.

It is also interesting to compare these leftist terrorists with the mostly-peaceful Jan. 6, 2021 protesters. Some of the J6 protesters have gotten 20 year prison terms, with the Biden DoJ appealing to get even stiffer sentences. For the most part, they were just trying to get votes properly recorded.

Leftist academia became mouthpieces of leftist propaganda because the end purpose of leftist thought in its entirety is centralized control...with themselves being that 'unspoken of' centralized control. Marx hid his totalitarian objectives behind this curtain like a con artist, '"From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs"...note that WHO determines this objective is left unsaid, which is the glorious omission of the entire political process which would govern you.

In this context, right wing thought at its foundation has always been about liberty. Liberty in contrast is about the openly declared maximization of self control and its benefits, not the maximization of others controlling you and their ever growing political power through the theft of your labors.

If you wish to be thematically dramatic, leftism is basically a tool no different than 'The One Ring' from Lord of the Rings. It is a secretive motive behind the 'gift' of proposed order.

'One ring to rule them all,
one ring to find them,
One ring to bring them all
and in the darkness bind them.'
