Victor Davis Hanson bemoans modern academia
What are we to make of this increasingly corrupt institution, whose health is so necessary to the welfare and competitiveness of the United States? It brags that American higher education is the strongest on the globe, but that is largely true only because of the non-political and still untainted hard sciences, engineering, and informational and computer sciences—and despite the humanities, particularly literature, philosophy, and history that have become increasingly ideological and theoretical.
Of course he's right. We must come up with a way to measure literature, philosophy and history objectively. A dipstick, perhaps? VeeDee units?
