Whilst I disagree with the Moldbuggers about almost everything,the have bit of a point about academic institutions sacking professors for being too illiberal.

However restoring the monarchy (or whatever) as solution seems over engineered to me.

My modest proposal consists mainly of changing some names. Our implicit standard model is that there ks a core of mainstream u universities, which teach the Truth in an objectI’ve and unbiased way, and a periphery of institutions that have an agenda…the catholic and Baptist universities,and so on. I propose that we start calling the mainstream institutions Liberal Secular University of So and So. Since no one has much problem with a Catholic university sacking a theologian who converts to Mormonism , why would they have a problems with the Liberal Secular University of Springfield sacking a professor who converts to sci entific racism? Which they do already. So what changes mainly the name.

Maybe we should all stop pretemding we don’t have agendas.
