A War Like No Other

"The K-12 public education system is essentially wrecked. No longer can any professor expect an incoming college freshman to know what Okinawa, John Quincy Adams, Shiloh, the Parthenon, the Reformation, John Locke, the Second Amendment, or the Pythagorean Theorem is. An entire American culture, the West itself, its ideas and experiences, have simply vanished on the altar of therapy."

A taste of how Victor Davis Hanson makes war on political correctness in this must-read article, "Ten Random Politically Incorrect Thoughts." (Hanson is the eloquent classicist who authored the book on the Peloponnesian wars, A War Like No Other.)
