Now is the moment to defund the colleges. We should defund them because they are the root of the virulent anti-Americanism that feeds the riots, the looting and the learned helplessness that afflict the country.

And the soft disdain ripens to outright antipathy for about a quarter of the graduates. Peter Wood
