Of Interest 2013-08-21 (Mendacity for Power XV)

Academe is the Klu Klux Klan when Academe turns people (like George Zimmerman) into racists. People form Klu Klux Klans for power, often mendaciously.  The Academe did this, mendaciously, in some cases, to scam people into granting them moral authority, but mostly I suspect it was mendacity in support of wishful thinking. In this case the wishful thought was, "I am righteous." That is Klan all the way. Academe is often very like the Pharisies and Puritans in a bad way, and seldom like them in a good way.

I have good reasons for my strong dislike of American colleges and universities.
