The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education has released a video detailing the University of Delaware’s disgraceful social indoctrination program aimed at their students.  From the article Video: ‘Think What We Think… Or Else: Thought Control on the American Campus’,

In the fall of 2007, the University of Delaware implemented an Orwellian program of ideological reeducation aimed at coercing students to change their thoughts, habits, and values to conform to a highly specific ideological agenda. Over 7,000 undergraduate students living in the dorms at UD were required to attend training sessions, floor meetings, and “one-on-one” meetings with their Resident Assistants (RAs), who followed procedures described internally by ResLife as a “treatment” and defined “learning” as “specific attitudinal or behavioral changes” in line with ResLife’s social, economic, political, and environmental agenda.

You can watch the video here.  It’s about 15 minutes long, but worth the watch if you’re interested in seeing thought control in action.

Elsewhere in the college campus world, Eugene Volokh discusses The University of the Totally Disarmed

Many universities ban firearms, but some research I’ve been doing reveals that some universities ban firearms and stun guns and chemical defensive sprays, either in dorm rooms or in the university as a whole. This basically leaves students entirely without any defensive weapons, and also has the effect of disarming dorm residents when they go off campus property, since they have no place to store the defensive weapons when they’re back on campus.

This strikes me as quite shocking, especially with regard to women students who are in the age range where the danger of rape is at its highest. The university basically leaves them as sitting ducks, unless they’re willing to violate the university policy. Even if the university tries to compensate by offering a good deal of on-campus policing (some do and some don’t), it surely can’t protect the students when they leave campus.
