A Higher Education
The call came yesterday. We all get them. On the other end of the line was the cheerful voice of an undergraduate. She was calling on behalf of my alma mater, Haverford College. I steeled myself to resist. As William Deresiewicz recently wrote, “Selective private colleges have become religious schools. The religion in question is not Methodism or Catholicism but an extreme version of the belief system of the liberal elite.” Why should I put money into the collection plate of the secular progressive church?
