I've written many poor columns under the REALITIES title during the past 30 years. Last week's was perhaps the worst. My apologies for the muddled organization.

Dolly Parton's daddy described the problem as well as anyone - putting 50 pounds of mud in a five-pound bag. In this case the mud was conclusive historical information about higher education, politics, religion, and communism. It was all inspired by a book, "The Breakdown of Higher Education" by distinguished Professor Emeritus, John M. Ellis, (University of California, Santa Cruz). I bought the book shortly after learning of Chinese billionaire Guo Wengei's, revelation that "the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) assigns $2 billion every year to pay off the Vatican for its silence concerning atrocities by Beijing."

I had also just verified the Vatican's support for communism and socialism across the globe, and generations of infiltrated homo-predator priests and bishops into the church in order to destroy it from within. (Bella Dodd, a high-ranking member of the U.S. Communist Party, "June 17 and 18, 1953, testified before the U.S. House Un-American Activities Committee. She herself claims to have orchestrated the placement of 1,100 men into U.S. seminaries.) Disgraced ex-Cardinal Theodore McCarrick was one of the communist plants (recently re-activated by Pope Francis to finalize the new Vatican-Beijing billion dollar deal.)

Add this to what I know of anarchist-socialist billionaire George Soros, et al, and their gifts of millions to Marxist Black Lives Matter, Antifa, and other radical groups seeking to destroy our American Constitutional culture, and the steam begins to rise.

But I digress. The point of Professor Ellis' book is to show incontrovertible proof that the hiring policies in our institutions of higher learning have been, for decades, deliberately rigged to hire liberal and radical educators and to exclude conservative, traditional teachers and professors. These radical professors are mostly socialist and communist sympathizers who teach their students anarchism and hatred for America. This goes along with what Professor Ellis sees as "...a campus atmosphere where a vicious intolerance for right-of-center opinion makes serious discussion of the issues of the day impossible." Also, "...a virtual end to teaching of the U.S. Constitution, and U.S. history no longer taught in a balanced and intelligent way but instead used to further the radicals' war against their own society;..."

Ellis's study demonstrates that, for example, "The left/right ratio in English departments had already become 88 to 3 [in 1999], and in political science it [has become] 81 to 2." His report to the Regents of the University of California, which he wrote as president of CAS at the time, was, and is today, rejected. "...but it's no exaggeration to say that the record of corruption that we documented in our report was only augmented by the dishonesty of the university' reaction to it."

We're looking at a seamless web of aggressive globalism, facilitated in the U.S. by politically liberal higher education. With 1.5 billion Communist Chinese, snuggling up to the homo-predator Catholic prelates, (leading 1.5 billion souls) together with the leftist global media, millions of radical teachers and department heads at all levels, and the Democratic Party cheering it all along, democracy is suffocating. What this entire galactic psycho mob has in common is a hysterical hatred of religion (especially Judeo-Christianity), a hatred for democracy, and a hatred for freedom. It strives for communism over democracy. This is clearly seen in the adamant hostility exhibited by many antidemocratic governors and mayors (examples: Chicago Mayor Lori E. Lightfoot, Seattle Jenny Durkan, and Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler), Democrats all. Without checking, I'm confident all are products of large public universities, just practicing what they learned on campus.
(I fear I have repeated last week's mistakes - subject too large, time too small.)

In short, a world-wide antidemocratic revolution is occurring today. The U.S. political Left is playing a crucial role, utilizing our Marxist-leaning media, socialist-ordered higher education, utterly corrupt religious (Vatican) government, wholly complicit Democratic Party, with the totalitarian muscle of the communist People's Republic of China - and Xi Jinping as self-appointed "President for Life"; just another politician hoping for eternal shelf life.

Professor Ellis' book, The Breakdown of Higher Education, How it Happened, the damage it does, & what can be done, is the first precisely documented evidence of the deliberate destruction of what John Stuart Mill, in his 1859 book On Liberty, referred to as the Marketplace of Ideas.

So far, the only thing stronger than today's Democratic-anarchist fury is the feebleness of Republican resolve.
