I did an interview with the Harvard Political Review several weeks ago.  The story is largely a paean to secularism. Steven Pinker even takes credit for democracy as an achievement of secularists.  I know.  That’s the history you get from an evolutionary psychologist.

To the author’s credit, I was certainly treated fairly.  I only wish she’d offered more of our interview to her readers.  For those who would like to read it, I have posted it in full over at First Thoughts.

    Hunter,
    I read the article and you were articulate in making your points. There was no room for apologetics, so you were somewhat constrained on adding faith to reason.
    While I was at the site, I found their interview with Breitbart. It looks like he will be playing an important role in exposing the Liberal/Marxist factions in academia. He is a Tea Party protector, and he is “pissed.” I can agree with him. It is time that the academy defended their moral relativism in vigorous, reasoned debate, whether in the classroom or the media.

    Oops, forgot to add:
    Media battles are going to be interesting, if not fun, with Brietmart involved. Here is the last portion of his interview

    “That is my battle. That is what Big Education will fight mercilessly using video cameras and Alinsky tactics, to make life hell for totalitarian Marxist professors. [Families] are spending hundreds of thousands of dollars, or, God forbid, students are taking out hundreds of thousands in loans in order to be turned against the system that they are about to graduate into. And I was one of those idiots.

    And now I’ve turned against my master, and I’m pissed”

    Maybe Acton can open an interest area or investigation into the ethical value of a university degree. We had a bad experience with Notre Dame last year, with Obama using the University to tell the Church to go meditate until the Bishops get it right.
