Apparently Marsha Enright of the “College of the United States” doesn’t like something I said earlier about their upcoming “seminar” for “success”. In brief, she thinks I was wrong, period.
But just to understand how Enright arrived at her thinking, I decided to check out some of her other blog entries. Some summaries:
- 2009-06-19: “Humility” is bad. Feynman! Galileo!
- 2009-06-09: “Critical thinking” is a Maoist construct. I was insulted while I was a kid, and that was wrong! And,
“Objectivism”“Objectivity” is good. All hail Ayn Rand!
- 2009-06-04: “Political correctness” is bad. “Social justice” is bad. One shouldn’t have to promise not to insult other people. (This doesn’t contradict the above.)
- 2009-03-27: First-hand observations are very important, especially when examining the issue of global warming — which is probably another Maoist conspiracy. However, first-hand observations aren’t needed when talking about stuff such as Aristotle.
I’m sure that if you attend their seminar, you’ll also be able to, um, think in a similar way, and soon find yourself on the pathway to “Objectivity!” and “Lifetime Success!” However, you’ll first need to think up US$1,300.
