Corporate Agenda: Cleansing the Campus

They call it being "values neutral" on the American college campus these days as the 'institutions of higher learning' cast about for money from anybody in order to replace cuts in state support.  At the head of the line are the corporate oligarchies who want to purge the colleges of any and all social conscience and turn them into 'free market indoctrination mills'.

Imagine just one generation of American youth being run through these corporate training mills with the likely result being no sense of history, no working class identification, no social awareness, no concern for the planet - all worship of the $$$, consumerism, and wanton materialism.

Happily there is growing fightback at some colleges against this corporate control of higher education but there is yet much work to be done.
