Telling Off My Alma Mater

I am still a proud Purdue engineering graduate, but when I got a fundraising request for the Purdue Day of Giving today I first went to their website and saw pictures of masked people. I then read their "Protect Purdue" policies. Anyone remember the Soviet Union or East Germany besides me?

I wrote this response to them:

Until Purdue stops worshipping the covid cult instead of doing real science (the kind Francis Bacon would recognize as following the truth wherever it leads), I give not a penny. Stop abusing students with CDC/Fauci faux science/politics and tell the faux experts what they can do with their masks and lockdowns. Be American instead of a Soviet/CCP surveillance state.

Either the vaccine works or it doesn't. If it works, you don't need to care what anyone else does. If it doesn't, then admit it and decide if you really want to wear a mask for the rest of your life. Again, what anyone else does is none of your business. This is not rocket science. I would think a university so closely affiliated with rocket science would recognize this.

Sort:  

I'm fairly certain that East Germany is the template for the NWO. After all, Germany invented authoritarian collectivism, exported it to Russia (and has succeeded in convincing everyone to hate Russia for rejecting it after 70 years), and is now trying to export it to the rest of the world. The GAG (Great Authoritarian Grift) is all Germany's fault. My people turned the eastern third of that blasted country into the world's largest open-air prison for 44 years, but apparently no-one told Stalin that Germans LOVE living that way, so OF COURSE they didn't learn their damn lesson.

Sorry for going off the rails like that. I'm in the middle of writing a very long exposé about the GAG, and I left off in the middle of the section about German history and how it ties in to all of this nonsense.

Thanks for your insights. I share your passion, as I came of age during the Reagan/John Paul II/Thatcher years. I grew up despising collectivism, read "1984" when I was about 12 years old, read Milton Friedman when I was 16...and today's woke kids think socialism is totally the best. Ugh!! #$%**! !BEER

I can forgive kids (actual kids, that is, since I still refer to myself as a kid sometimes) for being taken in by the GAG. After all, I fell for it too, but as I got older and wiser, I realised precisely why socialism doesn't work, and why "the greater good" is nothing more than the alibi of tyrants. Of course, this doesn't mean I'm nice to them about it. I wish someone had given me a harsh reality check sooner, but at least I got to go so deep down the rabbit hole that I now know both sides of this argument better than the left knows its own alone.

I'm sure you've heard the saying "if you're not a liberal at 20, you have no heart, if you're not a conservative at 40, you have no brain." I would posit that it is perfectly natural for kids to gravitate toward a system that takes care of their every need, since they still require some form of nurture, and if they can't get it from their family, they may as well get it from the State. Once you grow up, however, you realise that taking care of yourself isn't all that difficult, and big government just gets in the way. In fact, this entire dichotomy of the childlike mind favouring authoritarianism and the adult mind favouring liberty seems to be precisely the way that @lucylin frames the whole thing (when he's not trolling the midwits and making them screech like ringwraiths, that is).

I CANNOT forgive the people who peddle this nonsense and keep people infantilised, however. Kids should be allowed to believe silly things, but they should be encouraged to grow up eventually. Keeping people stunted (and muzzled) is precisely what keeps the grift going.

Absolutely love this: "Once you grow up, however, you realise that taking care of yourself isn't all that difficult, and big government just gets in the way." And I agree that the peddlers of the nonsense/evil are the actual villains.

As for being leftist at 20, I think my socialist phase was in 3rd or 4th grade. It's because I had mutant reading skills at a very early age and grew up in a house full of books with a granny who could quote Shakespeare and Cicero and who said "The world doesn't owe you a living" almost daily.

Trolling?....Trolling? Pffft....trying to make people think, you mean (and giving observers a good giggle!)

Don't knock trolling, mate, the right amount of it is a good thing! It helps people grow a thicker skin. Then, maybe, they'll start thinking for themselves.

Not in here, it doesn't - it causes them to downvote you, then block you - because if they can't see you, you're no longer there! (postmodernism logic at it's finest!lol)

universities are all about programming sheeple and giving them certificates for regurgitating propaganda...

That was a great letter!
