"It profits me but little that a vigilant authority always protects the tranquillity of my pleasures and constantly averts all dangers from my path, without my care or concern, if this same authority is the absolute master of my liberty and my life."

--Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America

The Decline of Western Civilization (cont.)

I used to associate the University of Chicago with its physics department, its economics department, its law school.   Given articles like this one it's hard to know what to think, other than I wouldn't want a kid of mine to go there:

The University of Chicago, often compared to Harvard, Yale and Stanford for the level of its academic excellence, is hosting a Sex Week chock-full of events graphically teaching techniques that, in a more innocent time, were considered private matters. Some examples include workshops titled: “Great Oral Sex with Tea Time and Sex Chats,” “The Perfect Vagina,” “Anal 101,” and “Sex Ed for Kids.” Why, there’s even a musical titled “Genitalia the Musical.”

Lest you think Breitbart is exaggerating, you can go to the university's promotional website for the "Sex Week" event here.   It's truly appalling, not least because the young people running it seem, perhaps not incidentally, relatively unattractive.   Which makes the whole thing seem even more desperate and pathetic.  

Oh, by the way, the tuition at Chicago is $43,581.  With room and board, the total cost of undergraduate education in 2013 will be $57,711.

What can't continue, won't continue.
