Award-winning professor Stanley K. Ridgley, Ph.D. is a staunch defender of Individualism and Enlightenment values in the university as the best defense against the seduction of authoritarians, charlatans, political poseurs, and noxious ideologues of every sort. In BRUTAL MINDS, Dr. Ridgley takes on the topics of radicalization, cancel culture, and suppression of free speech and rise of socialism on campuses in the US. In the tradition of the seminal and influential classic Closing of the American Mind, Ridgley's book is a call-to-action to halt the left-wing takeover of higher education, bringing this important topic to a new generation.
Much of American academia constitutes a dark world. It is populated by subsidized paranoiacs, amateur psychotherapists, neo-Marxist totalitarians, "student affairs professionals" imbued with Stormtrooper mentality, and thought reformers who violate federal law against human subject experimentation as they assault young students in "workshops" destroying family ties to clear the way for new relationships grounded in racialist ideology.
These are the university's brutal minds. The American university is a sanctuary where brutal minds find purpose, protection, camaraderie, subsidy, anonymity, and power. All of this occurs behind an educational fa ade that masks their activities and ideology. BRUTAL MINDS strips away the fa ade of the modern American university to reveal the power inside the institution -- the largely anonymous authoritarians who constitute the coercive gears and cogs of the machine; they turn the crank on the ideological grinders that process young people into a prefab conception of the Good Citizen, a 21st century version of the Soviet-style "New Man," who is transformed with the proper application of "education" and coercion.
