    Welcome back!
    Since we lost the universities to “progressive” intellectuals the battle has been practically lost. They brainwashed the current crop of educators and produce students who are trained to ignore inconvenient facts that render questionable the progressive theories they adhere to in a religious fashion. For the case in point neither our testimony that we survived corporal punishment both at home and in school without being traumatized and that we had strong loving families that succeeded passing on key social values to us will be rejected without further inquiry.
    What disturbs me most is the realization that these people make work for themselves and for others at the expense of trampling on real human beings and destroying real families in a state of automatism. If they were doing it consciously and with selfish bad intent – I could understand it. However, they are doing it automatically and are really hard to de-program. It does feel from time to time like battling the windmills.
    I am afraid that the greatest service you provide has bery limited de-programing value (in the sense of encouraging progressives to no longer confuse thinking with feeling), but much value in supporting those of us who are beginning to feel lonely surrounded by brainwashed automatons very full of themselves.
    I am afraid that the only chance we have to reverse this nightmare is to reach children and develop their analytical and thinking skills.
    I have some moderate success in attempting to salvage a couple of adults, but it is incredibly laborious and, incidentally, only the fear of economic collapse appears to be working in terms of forcing them to try to think. They can be so comfortable that only the perception of a direct and immediate threat may cause them to fire some neurons. I wish I was jocking, but I am not. It may well be that only a dramatic and well deserved economic collapse would shake some people out of somnolence and make them suspect that some of this progressivism constantly fed on them through schools and mass media is in fact very one sided and profoundly harmful. In moments of anger and hopelessness I toy with the idea of attempting to accelerate the destruction by joining the choir. Unfortunately, my conscience does not allow me do do that and, like you, I have children. :-(
