George Leef, research director for the Pope Center of Higher Education in Raleigh, North Carolina is an accomplished reviewer of important books that expose follies and foolishness incubated in our universities. Hatchlings from Big U come out not only with little or no classic studies, but often indoctrinated with political activism and vague, weird ideology.
In the link below he notes that “sustainability” mania has become a conglomeration of: “environmentalism, anti-capitalism, salvation through liberal activism, and the chance to hector all those (other) wrong-thinking people.”
Leef reviewed a “deeply researched study” by the National Association of Scholars. The authors write that within the last ten years “the campus sustainability movement has gone from a minor thread of campus activism to a master narrative of what ‘liberal education’ should seek to accomplish for students and for society as a whole.”
Similar to a religion, believers don’t question the doctrine. The Fundamentalism of sustainability is “more like preaching than teaching”–hardly appropriate for studies in higher education.
