"It seems now that the place where you see the most obvious censorship is on college campuses -- the precise place where you would expect to see the least."

    The problem is that the majority of drones coming out of public schools are analytical gorillas that don't know what to look for.

    Seems to me the media has the most obvious censorship. The media is certainly biased toward socialism.

    "The closing of the American mind" has been accomplished.

    Welcome to socialism Mr. & Mrs. America.

    Robert, if you know what you are looking for, you can find it off-campus as well! If I read every book on my own without being told to, does it count? Do I read for credit or for knowledge? Is my 'masters degree' a true measure of the 'level of mastery' I have acquired or just a receipt for 'paid in full'?

    Da Vinci was unlettered as were many 'geniuses' throughout history. Where are the likes of Jefferson, Adams and Washington, who were brilliant in their 20's -- such wisdom can hardly be found in professors in their 50's today. When colleges start churning out Thomas Jefferson's (who wrote the Declaration of Independence at 27 years old) perhaps then it will be worth the money. In the mean time, my true 'education' is the result of the questions I ask and my satisfaction (or lack thereof) with the 'answers.' ;-)

    Absolutely, a characteristic of the conventional system's practice of the Totalitarian character it typically practices. Socialism is the challenge of social abilities to create a truely free human.
