March to academic madness

I can’t speak for instructors in other disciplines, but having degreed in and taught law, government, and economics, I can say with some authority that the biggest mistake professors of law, government, and economics make is failing to tell their students that what they are about to learn about American law, government, and economics is 89.287% rubbish, and the rest questionable bullshit.

You are not required to believe it whole hog much less leave the classroom feeling equipped to advocate for the aforementioned academic disciplines. You are supposed to leave the classroom with the tools to question the disciplines you’ve studied and when appropriate exercise the intestinal fortitude to abandon and replace the theories with new ones.

Unfortunately, too many of the instructors teaching the narratives are too overly invested in their JDs, JSDs, and PhDs and publications in retched journals that gather dust to express this to their students …

For those of us who were programmed by academia having failed to take the blue pill, it’s too late. You can of course save your children from going down that yellow brick road to la la land being ever mindful of the wizard’s narrative being spilled on them from the lectern….

…. that is all …
