All University education does not turn philosophy into folly, science into superstition and art into pedantry. :-)

It's a joke (but not far off).

Wonder what he would think of today’s University. That quote couldn't be more accurate.

But Shaw certainly puts another reality to that previous quote about suppression of freedom being most abominable in a university. Only morons believe that -- and they'd stand by and wring their hands and pull their hair while people got locked up and beaten for expressing themselves.

Universities are our great fall, They teach only propaganda, that's all: Gramsci rules, no doubt, Marx! Lenin! they shout; Until America is left in a pall............~ Paul C. Vitz, Ph.D. (Lecture notes delivered at Columbia University on the psychology of atheism)
