IMHO, it has to do with discrepancies between the theory and real life but what's your opinion?

I think you are dead on. These profs do not live in the real word. By the very nature of what they do, they teach theory, not reality. Sure, the leftist nirvana of peace love and everyone locking hands singing Kum Ba Ya SOUNDS appealing but it has nothing to do with reality. The reality is, this is a capitalistic society, one in which the profs really have no real life experiences.

With a majority of colleges and universities being slanted toward the dark side of socialism it is just a matter of time until everything will be free and we all will be poor. I went to Northeastern University in Boston ... probably the only conservative university in Massachusetts.....because a majority of people who go there pay their own way and come from hard working families.

If this is going on in Mass, what they hell are they teaching our kids at Berkley these days? How to make pipe bombs?

Dems do just fine, as long as they have Repubs to protect them from themselves.
