Darwinian evolution for human origins greatly impressed his friend, Karl Marx, who coupled evolution with the Communist promise of a utopia. It is no surprise that this promise was adopted by God-pretender professors in universities. “Alarming . . . is the ease with which some major educational institutions have been duped, under the much-abused term of academic freedom, into permitting underhanded attacks to be made by instructors responsible for the higher education of our young people. When academic freedom fails to recognize the importance of truth as a basic requirement for college classrooms lectures and discussions, then the usefulness of our colleges and universities are a thing of the past” (Christian Economics, J. Edgar Hoover, October 31, 1961).
Karl Marx vehemently opposed any property ownership rights of the people. In his Manifesto of the Communist Party, “You must, therefore, confess that by ‘individual’ you mean no other person . . . than the middle-class owner of property. This person must indeed be swept out of the way and made impossible” (published by Progress Publishers, Moscow, 1973 edition, p. 66). It is estimated that over 45 million people who rejected Communist socialism in Russia were killed.
A retired neighbor, who had been Superintendent of the Ames Public Schools, and I shared some of our experiences and enjoyed many laughs on occasion in my home. He was an excellent Superintendent. We had corresponded by mail during his tenure. He asked my opinion of Karl Marx, whom he definitely rejected, but had been introduced to favorably as a law student by professors. Radical teachers do not tell students the truth. Karl Marx was a “master of deceit” (from the book, Masters of Deceit, by J. Edgar Hoover, former Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and whose name was given to the FBI Building in Washington, D.C.).
It is easy to trace God-pretender professors’ adoption of Darwin’s atheistic theory when attached by Karl Marx’s promise of a Communist utopia. Interestingly, the Soviet Union collapsed in just 70 years. Quoting J. Edgar Hoover, “The never-ending struggle of Communist [missionaries] to capture the minds and loyalty of American youth goes on incessantly. They have openly lectured to student groups at colleges and universities throughout the country. Alarming too is the ease with which some major educational institutions have been duped under the much-abused term of academic freedom, into permitting underhanded attacks to be made by instructors responsible for the higher education of our young people. When academic freedom fails to recognize the importance of truth as a basic requirement for college classrooms lectures and discussions, then the usefulness of our colleges and universities are a thing of the past” (Christian Economics, J. Edgar Hoover, October 31, 1961).
Some evolutionary utopian education outcomes—Since 1963, births by unwed teen girls are up some 400%, violent crime is up 560%, divorce has impacted over half of the marriages, and education costs in billions of dollars (constant 1990 dollars) are up some 207.6%, while SAT scores are down some 80 points. In 1973, humanist lawyers on the Supreme Court upheld Roe v. Wade, which parallels an ancient heathen practice of appeasement to the gods of fertility. Since that decision, some 60 million babies have been aborted. The National Health and Nutrition Survey (Lawrence K. Altman, International Herald Tribune, March 12, 2008) finds that “one in four U.S. teenage girls have STDs, U.S. health officials reported Tuesday.”
The alleged Darwinian Marxist American Association of University Professors’ (AAUP) version of academic freedom and tenure, which enables radicals to reject the public standards for what is taught, is not a legal concept (Google: Marxism in American Universities). The leftists ideologues placed the University of Iowa on its “ignominious [shameful] list of sanctioned higher education institutions” (Ames Tribune, June 19, 2018). Because the Iowa Board of Regents REFUSED to give radical professors at the University of Iowa veto authority when selecting Bruce Harreld to be the new president, the Regents established a legacy of courage, duty and integrity.
The truth is conclusive. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but, in the end, the purpose of university education is freedom for competition of ideas among different college departments in search of truth and to challenge critical thinking among students. What we now have is tyranny against the moral fiber of our youth and nation. It is important that citizens, especially parents and education taxpayers, express their concerns to the Iowa Board of Regents, 11260 Aurora Avenue, Urbandale, Iowa 50322.
