“The American Founders drew on an astonishingly wide range of historical sources” | Heather Mac Donald

ON THE HISTORICAL SOURCES OF THE FOUNDERS THAT ARE THE BASIS OF THE AMERICAN REPUBLICAN PHILOSOPHY

“The American Founders drew on an astonishingly wide range of historical sources. They invoked the Greek city-states, the Carolingian Dynasty, and the Ottoman Empire in the Constitution’s defense. And they assumed that the new nation’s citizens would themselves be versed in history and political philosophy. Ignorance of the intellectual trajectory that led to the rule of law and the West’s astounding prosperity puts those achievements at risk.”

— HEATHER MAC DONALD, THE DIVERSITY DELUSION: HOW RACE AND GENDER PANDERING CORRUPT THE UNIVERSITY AND UNDERMINE OUR CULTURE.

Heather Mac Donald explains her book’s title, on how the delusion of diversity destroys our common humanity.

What is happening in the universities in regards to this?

HOOVER INSTITUTE – UNCOMMON KNOWLEDGE

“Is the dedication to diversity undermining American culture? In her book The Diversity Delusion, Heather Mac Donald argues that the focus on race and gender diversity is harming society. Mac Donald and Peter Robinson discuss how she was protested off of school campuses by students because of her ideas. They discuss the collapse of free-speech ideals on college campuses in the United States and how the dedication to diversity doesn’t extend to a diversity of thought.

Mac Donald also breaks down issues of gender and racial equality. She talks about how affirmative action has not had the impact that was intended and has in fact made attending college more difficult for minorities who are accepted to schools they are not ready for. She also goes on to analyze rape culture on college campuses and posits her theories as to why discussions of sexual violence have become more prevalent now than in the past. “
