America was founded on the concept of freedom and none of our freedoms is more important than the freedom of speech. The Constitution guarantees that right, yet more and more we see the media refusing to abide by it and, what's more dangerous, academia. And academia is the heart of the problem, for over the last few generations America has allowed the teaching profession to be heavily populated with agenda-driven teachers, teachers who want to force their view on others under the force of the grading structure. If you don't spout the professor's nonsense, you suffer the consequences in your grade. And those years of parents not paying attention and students not demanding real and open debate have brought us to the result of what we've have seen represented by Google this week.
Everyone wants to talk about diversity, but it's not true diversity. It's diversity where certain categories of people are not allowed to participate and the others, the ones they call making up the diversity lobby, represent just the opposite of diversity. Oh, they might offer the balance of race, creed and whatever other category the Left wants to consider diverse, but without a diversity of ideas we lose our biggest strength. What's that? The ability of individuals to ponder, study and debate and come up with their own conclusions. And by having the truly open debate, we become stronger as more people have to learn to critically analyze issues and come to their own conclusions.
That's what made America great and it's what will make her able to compete on all fronts. Sadly, we don't compete anymore, we just give everyone an attendance medal, the diversity award.
Wake up, America, we're losing our edge and our ability to rationally think. Time to put on the old thinking cap and bring it back. For if we continue as we have been much longer, we're likely to find ourselves permanently lost in a world of gobbledygook know as Groupthink. The 1984 syndrome will never make us great. No, only freedom will.
