Universities’ Decline Began with Vietnam War Influence

Almost fifty years ago, during the Vietnam War, many members of the “New Left” in America celebrated the victory of communist forces in Hanoi over South Vietnam. They saw this brutal communist conquest as a symbol of peace, ignoring the harsh realities of Marxist ideologies. The aftermath of this victory brought more suffering and death to Indochina than the war itself. Unfortunately, these individuals were more focused on reshaping university values rather than learning from historical lessons.

The so-called victors of the Second Indochina War have since dominated academic institutions, shaping the minds of countless students with their radical ideologies. Their vision for a Utopian society based on peace and social justice mirrors the oppressive regimes they once supported. Their influence has divided America, eroding the principles that once made the nation great.

The seeds of America’s current cultural division were sown during the Vietnam War, fueled by activist movements and a failure of educational institutions to uphold academic integrity. Instead of promoting critical thinking, universities became breeding grounds for indoctrination and censorship of opposing viewpoints. This shift has led to a generation of young Americans who are more inclined to activism than genuine intellectual exploration.

It is time for universities to return to their core mission of education and free inquiry. The scholar-activist model has proven to be a disservice to academic integrity, promoting bias over objectivity. Administrations must take a stand against disruptive activism on campuses and prioritize a respectful exchange of ideas. Taxpayers should not fund institutions that prioritize indoctrination over education or show contempt for traditional American values.

In today’s political climate, where radical ideologies fuel campus protests and support for terrorist organizations like Hamas, it is clear that a return to intellectual honesty and civic responsibility is crucial. Violent demonstrations and anti-American sentiments should not be tolerated, and those who incite such behavior must face consequences. It is time to uphold the rule of law and safeguard the principles that have defined America’s greatness for generations
