German Proverb

College is not a “safe place”. College is not supposed to be considerate of students emotions and comfortability. College classes should not tailor around anyone’s personal values.

Colleges are going through an identity crisis. In part due to the financialization and privatization of colleges across the United States but that is for a later article. However, this article is about the intellectual handcuffs that bind professors across the country by colleges everywhere.

On College Campuses now these are the rules:

Professors cannot offend their students. Professors cannot be political or seem to be supportive of a political agenda. The students’ personal feelings matter more to the school than professors' expertise. All of the above is what is hindering political growth in the United States.

This is caused by the modern view of college students as clients and not pupils. Colleges now have to tailor their services (education and enlightenment) to the pockets of their clients (students). Which forms a client/professional relation between student and professor.

A client/professional relation is what someone has with a personal physician or a private lawyer; yes, the professional is the expert but the client has the final say. Unless someone is on the emergency table, a person can refuse the expertise of his or her doctor. This current relationship deteriorates the master and pupil relationship that colleges are supposed to impose.

With this new relationship, professors are forced to play down to their students. Students’ opinions and feelings began to carry a lot more weight than they should. Students’ opinions and personal experiences are now "facts" and students’ views become on the same level as professors’ views. Which is entirely not true Professors and students are not equals. Colleges viewing students as clients creates entitled, egotistic adults, which results in negative consequences for a functioning society.

Colleges do not produce masses of students who can critically think and are open to learning. College produces masses of students who believe their opinions matter more than they actually do. College graduates no longer need to listen to experts because like professors, professional experts are here to advise not dictate.

Which creates a society of ignorant but arrogant people who believe they are entitled to not only have in opinion but also that their opinion should be seriously listened to. Everyone deserves to be able to talk but not everyone’s opinion deserves to be respected. Imagine a society where everyone's opinion matters just as much as everyone else’s.

Now any rational person should be asking: “How do we stop this?”

1. Put the power back into the expert hands at colleges.

Destroy the notion that professors and students are peers. Professors have spent a lifetime studying their subject, students have not. In an emergency room, the person on the medical table opinion does not carry as much weight as the surgeon. So why should college professors’ opinions matter the same as students’.

That does not mean professors should not be held accountable by students. But when personal view is against personal view, the professors should get the benefit of the doubt over the students. That leads to the next point.

2. Bring back controversial conversations

Colleges have censored professors from saying controversial statements in their classrooms. Professors can no longer say anything that offends or make students feel uncomfortable. Professors have to be sensitive or socially conscious about the subject they talk about in their classrooms. Which is an absolutely idiotic notion. Classrooms are supposed to make people feel uncomfortable and to make people think.

These controversial discussions are what causes progression and critical thinking. These conversations are essential for creating functioning citizens and being able to see the opposite views. Professors should play devil’s advocate or say something controversial to challenge students whenever possible. The fact that colleges are robbed of meaningful conversations is exactly why society looks the way it does now.

Conversations that cause discourse or challenges comfortability defines political society now. However, no one wants to have these essential conversations. People do not want to even consider opinions that rival their own. If students are taught that in college that personal values matter more than fact, of course, that thought process will carry over to society. Society needs educated, factual debates to improve. However, adults believe that their emotions and values really matter in the real world. Which leads to the final point.

3. Opinions are never more important than facts

Facts beat everything. No one’s feelings matter more than pure facts. Colleges need to enforce that on campus. The idea that anyone can counter a fact with “I believe” is utter stupidity. This is how society creates adults that think autism and vaccines are linked and that global warming is not real. Colleges need to go back to enforcing that facts reign supreme.

Please, fight to bring back these three rules to college courses in order to protect the future of society
