Dark Thoughts About The Future

Viewed objectively, these two recent controversies represent skirmishes rather than major invasions of religious freedom. But all of us view them with dark thoughts about the future. Our foreboding is justified. Progressives have long dominated an important American subculture: the university. It’s their church and they have run it with ruthless intolerance. The supposedly fair-minded liberals and moderates in today’s universities very rarely speak against the politically correct status quo. This same intolerance now characterizes many establishment institutions such as Big Law and professional organizations responsible for licensing and accreditation. They are becoming more and more like the university culture: intolerant and punitive of dissent.
