Leftist Indoctrination in School
Please recall that George Mason University is the new University of Chicago. (We can expect leftists to try infiltrating it over the next few decades, though.)
If there has been a conspiracy among liberal faculty members to influence students, “they’ve done a pretty bad job,” said A. Lee Fritschler, a professor of public policy at George Mason University and an author of the new book “Closed Minds? Politics and Ideology in American Universities” (Brookings Institution Press).
If you're looking for political indoctrination, I recommend looking at primary and secondary school teachers. The teacher I had who was most likely to be a Stalinist agent taught social studies in high school. Little things gave her away, such as the time she interrupted fast when I pointed out that the totalitarian system described in Plato's Republic resembled the Soviet Union. I also remember the way she had the class debate the merits of capitalism, socialism, and communism for an imaginary nation in which capitalism didn't come out very well and in which she didn't correct obvious fallacies from students, e.g., that the nation didn't have to borrow money from capitalists because they could always print their own.
The clincher was her attitude toward Hubert Humphrey, “He was always backed by the bosses.” Years later, I found that Hubert Humphrey was one of the first liberal Democrats to combine anti-Communism and anti-racism, thereby depriving Communists of their monopoly of opposition to racism. (A mere liberal Democrat would have said, “Humphrey has changed.”)
On the other hand, the social-studies teachers I had also included a normal liberal (I think) and a moderate conservative, so the probably Communist agent didn't do that much damage.
