Humanism

By Glenn

Conservative politicians and pundits understand that they cannot succeed unless they create an “other” separate from humanity. “Mexican rapist.” “Muslim extremist.” “Thug” “Welfare Queen” “Drug Addict”

Hence, conservative politicians and pundits target the Humanities at universities with vicious attacks that de-legitimize these fields of study. Renaissance humanism opened the door to the Modern World. We better learn real history or our children will descend into a period of tribalism and barbarism.
