General Assembly Hall By Patrick GrubanGeneral Assembly Hall By Patrick GrubanPosted March 17, 2017: Guest Post by Martin Slann, Professor Political Science, The University of Texas at Tyler

The Dissident Prof is pleased to post this most insightful takedown of the U.N. by friend Marty Slann, who contributed an essay about the "shaming" and social exclusion (to use today's snowflake parlance) of conservatives in Exiled, "Losing Friends and Dining Alone."

The United Nations includes nearly 200 member-states.  Most of these are (mis)governed) by dysfunctional and corrupt tyrannies that insist on making life for their own citizens as miserable as possible.  Generally speaking, most of these states are relatively poor in great part because their economies are controlled by kleptomaniacs whose venality knows no limits.

Booker T. Washington Lecture 1906Booker T. Washington Lecture 1906Posted February 10, 2017, by Mary Grabar: Read Booker T. Washington's autobiography, Up from Slavery, alongside Benjamin Franklin's autobiography. Both are written by important Americans and exemplify the can-do spirit, with entertaining and helpful lessons along the way. Booker T. Washington was born into slavery in 1856 and went on to found Tuskegee Institute and become an advisor to presidents and an internationally known advocate for black progress. Observing how slavery had instilled economic, spiritual, and intellectual dependence, he put his efforts into making freed slaves a viable part of the American economic system.

Thomas SowellThomas SowellPosted by Mary Grabar, February 1, 2017: Greetings! February is Black History Month and I am coming across some very interesting information as I write my book about George Schuyler. I hope to provide some useful information and recommended reading throughout the month. Today, I offer you a paragraph from one of Thomas Sowell's earlier books, Ethnic America: A History (1981), a very lucid and even-handed comparison of the various ethnic groups from all over the world in America.

Since the 1960s this seems to have become their preferred way of communicating. Witness, the Women's March on Washington the day after Donald Trump's inauguration. With the ostensible claim that they were marching against his sexist crudities from an old tape, they emerged with crudities, including pictures and costumes, that might have made the guys in the locker room blush. A good photo montage capturing the profanity-filled signs is over at the Washington Examiner. Protest is now also the favored "discourse" on campuses. Without apology or shame, professors on campuses recruited students to travel to Washington, D.C., to march. It is interesting to note that both newsletters about higher education presented such activities as legitimate educational activities.
