  1. oooohhh… this is going to be good.

  2. And it was!
    The citation problem is aggravated by citation whoring by journals – you don’t published without references.

    All higher ed is downstream of the elite schools. Lesser schools will cheerfully hire the worst phd graduates from elite schools hoping a little of the prestige will rub off. Usually these grads are the worst and well aware of their status and immunity. It’s awful.

    “education is the casualty” – lol. Premeditated victim or reckless manslaughter?

    Would nomenklatura be the word you’re seeking?

    Fusion reactor??!!

    1. There’s this guy, and IIRC someone had built a polywell reactor up there as well :

    Regarding college, I think it serves two purposes: to indoctrinate and degrade young people at the same time. It’s basically a degeneracy factory. Great point you guys made about parental complicity. I’ve been trying to explain to my younger cousins that college is a waste of time and money, but they and their parents are too pozzed to understand. Qui vult decipi, decipiatur. Great podcast!

  4. I’m curious as to why you think Bill Clinton’s mother was a prostitute. I’m not challenging you here, I was just unaware of this. She certainly had many husbands.

  5. I went to a regional public university that many would call Podunk U; a “lesser school” if you will. I was fortunate enough to have professors that didn’t peddle hard their own leftist views. I was left alone to wrestle the ideas and concepts brought forth by the dead thinkers within my texts in the library, freely choosing whatever books that my hands found in the stacks. From this exercise I then went to my professors’ office hours to wrestle with them, hypothetically speaking, the ideas and concepts that I wrestled in the library. A “lesser school” would not give this to its students – only an elite school can.

    Excellent, excellent podcast this week. You guys are at your best when you talk about how power and influence actually work in the world.

    You really need a sound engineer though. There was an echo for most of the episode, and there are pretty frequently significant level differences between speakers. Your sound deserves to be the same high quality as your conversation!

  8. A couple episodes back I almost commented requesting an episode on higher education, so I was pumped when I saw this. I agree with last American, your grasp of the power structure of the American empire is superb. A lot of people underestimate how vital a plank higher education system is to the american empire. I pray the whole thing burns down as soon as possible.

    I can see and feel this scenario which you have eloquently dissected everyday on my campus. The big meme about modern college campuses is that they are Marxist indoctrination camps, which is partially true, but you have really hit the bullseye. They are selective social clubs for the ruling class. An average iq student who conforms to liberal internationalism gets way farther than the high iq student with dissident right-wing views, not only because of classroom environment, but also because of the system of social conditioning outside of the classroom which exists on campus.

    I attended a “prestigious college,” mostly because of parental expectations, and while I appreciate the intellectual development of those four years, I generally regret going to college. It was basically like being a stranger for four years, when I could have been working, making money, and finding a girl to marry. If you don’t want to take part in the sexual degeneracy, college is a pretty lonely place.

    Keep up the good work fellas.
