Academia has long been known to be a hotbed for liberal indoctrination. Their propaganda has been seemingly progressive at best, but now it appears they are beginning to unveil themselves for what they really are.
The Massachusetts Institute of Technology recently decided to venture into publishing communist propaganda for young children, in a book titled Communism for Kids.
Since the prestigious engineering school published the book a month ago, it has received an inordinate amount of backlash from conservative and libertarian communities. Yet despite the pushback, the book still remains on their school’s website.
The first paragraph of the book’s overview, as written on the MIT site, reads as following:
“Once upon a time, people yearned to be free of the misery of capitalism. How could their dreams come true? This little book proposes a different kind of communism, one that is true to its ideals and free from authoritarianism. Offering relief for many who have been numbed by Marxist exegesis and given headaches by the earnest pompousness of socialist politics, it presents political theory in the simple terms of a children’s story, accompanied by illustrations of lovable little revolutionaries experiencing their political awakening.”
You would think the school known for its academic prowess would know better than to promote an ideology responsible for killing 100 million people in the 20th Century. It shouldn’t be that difficult for the nation’s brightest scientists and engineers to have a basic understanding of history and economics, and understand that capitalism doesn’t provide misery, but instead provides wealth and opportunity.
But apparently academia serves an ulterior motive in promoting a Marxist agenda, instead of promoting truth. Sad!
This type of left wing extremism cannot be allowed to continue. Please join Liberty Hangout in declaring May Communism Awareness Month, and help us to spread the truth about this dangerous ideology.
