    "N.R.A. and G.O.P., Together Forever" is from the October 06, 2017 Opinion section of The New York Times. It was written by Charles J. Sykes and narrated by Keith Sellon-Wright.

    With chapters exploring the staggering costs of a college education, the sharp decline in tenured faculty and teaching loads, the explosion of administrator jobs, the grandiose building plans (gyms, food courts, student recreation centers), and the hysteria surrounding the "epidemic" of campus rapes, "triggers", "micro-aggressions", and other forms of alleged trauma, Fail U. concludes by offering a different vision of higher education - one that is affordable, more productive, and better-suited to meet the needs of a diverse range of students.

    College curriculums that were once centered on instruction in the classics of Western civilization have become smorgasbords where almost anything qualifies as a course in the liberal arts and where political conformity is enforced by professors. Stanford University, caving in to demands from the Black Student Union (“We don’t want to read any more dead white guys”), removed Homer, Dante, Luther, Darwin, and Freud from its course on Western civilization.
