This op-ed piece from these two members of academe caused a lot of outrage!

"But restoring the hegemony of the bourgeois culture will require the arbiters of culture — the academics, media, and Hollywood — to relinquish multicultural grievance polemics and the preening pretense of defending the downtrodden. Instead of bashing the bourgeois culture, they should return to the 1950s posture of celebrating it."

Like a friend of mine used to say: "you know what 'fat chance' means?"

An unquestioning populace, who prioritize respect for authority over doing what is right? Obedience is not a virtue.

That sounds wholly anti-American. Hell, we usually wind up going to war to destroy those kind of societies

I don't believe having respect for the proper types of authority such as in the classroom and of law enforcement amounts to an "unquestioning populace".
