    i've been thinking why universities have such left wing nuts in them... especially the profs.

    u know how when you go to university all the smart people go learn how to do something, e.g. nursing, accounting, engineering, chemistry; and all the moody idiots go to Political Science? you know the types -- the arrogant "social activist" types that think of themselves as Che Guevarra...

    well guess what --
    after graduation, the smart type of people get jobs
    and the idiot type can't get jobs, so they end up teaching

    and there's the solution to the great mistery of why universities are full of leftist professors who make idiots out of themselves, and try to indoctrinate youths as hard and best they can. they realize how irrelevant they are in the world so they'll bullshit anyone that will listen -- mainly helpless students that have no choice but to listen and agree, or get low grades

    Would make sense, except who's teaching nursing, accounting, engineering, chemistry?

    people who are apolitical. people who used to work in industry and now want a less hectic life. or "social activists" who are not radical enough to have chosen PoliSci as their major, and are more closely connected to the real world out there because of their work in industry... and not being stupid ideologues.

    i.e. the ppl who teach the nurses / accountants / etc. are the ones who are not preaching.

    Then how are Political Science teachers getting through to nursing, accounting, engineering and chemistry students?

    i know there are some nut professors at York (largest university in Canada, the one i'm going to), but i've never had a prof try to indoctrinate me. and that's because my major is accounting.

    in the last 4 years i've only had 2 profs that very indirectly referred to politics. but not one has mentioned Iraq or "US global hegemony"

    [edit:]

    yet if you try the "women's studies" or "history" profs, it's a whole different issue. instead of teaching students how to think critically and constructively they indoctrinate with one set of beliefs.

    This still doesnt explain apparent left wing bias.

    Funny, I spent 5 years at uni and never knew another PoliSci Student. I did engineering.

    explain how you see the left wing bias demonstrated...

    also, you might not know polisci students, but you're very likely to have heard or seen them on campus, demonstrating or holding bizzarre art exhibits.

    at York they interrupt midterms with their megaphones

    Perhaps they are simply more vocal:

    more vocal, irritable, immature, in-your-face, with delusions of self importance and grandeur, and most importantly: disruptive

    reminds me of a saying:
    "Ten people who speak make more noise than ten thousand who are silent."

    So what does that say for apparent bias?

    there may be no bias collectively, but considering the 10000 who are not saying anything, and the 10 who are, that's 10 more indoctrinating voices than the ones that aren't.

    right wing people shouldn't go to university anyway. They should start a business after high school so they can pay taxes that will be used to pay the salary of lefty professors.

    the 1-1000 ratio is best case scenario... it's probably worse than that.

    I'm glad this is coming from a completely unbiased and utterly sane person.


    And, pray tell, how would you know what smart people do?


    Do you consider Philosophy left-wing idiocy too? Congratulations, you missed the logic courses.


    What are your criteria for relevancy?

    Just because you're a teacher doesn't mean that all teachers are idiot-types
    i never even implied this. lol how did you even extrapolate this conclusion from what i wrote???

    yea... as i said, nice try. i'm not going there.
