That is a legitimate reason in and of itself for scrutiny. UC Berkeley History Professor’s Open Letter Against BLM, Police Brutality and Cultural Orthodoxy. I'd appreciate any info or views. Who said Nietzsche was a protomarxist? There is no reason to distrust the claim that this is an email. The issue of nonfunctional representation among the component states of a Union is the precise underlying rationale for the Electoral College. Gates the philanthopist has been a failure. Sometimes historians gather and interpret data, but I don’t think any reasonable person would conclude that they are performing science. The Southern States would have been quite happy to count slaves as 100% human beings because it would have given them more representatives in Congress. I have met you both personally but do not know you closely, and am contacting you anonymously, with apologies. My grandfather whose ideas were similar to mine fought ‘nazis’, so I could be called one. There have been a large number of killings as a result of this mess.

What would happen if there was a Democrat Supreme Court, President, both houses of Congress, and Democrat activists in the IRS, NSA, FBI, DOE, EPA…That seems to be the end goal. However, both groups outperform white Americans on nearly all SES indices – as do Nigerian Americans, who incidentally have black skin. So, what happens in these cases is you get a lot of “anonymous” voices speaking out…and that’s exactly what occurred with a history professor at the very liberal UC Berkeley Univerity. While it would be useful to have the specific studies etc. I’m ashamed of my department. I doubt that this was ever sent as an email. You also haven’t provided evidence that “programs like History have moved over the years from Humanities divisions/colleges/departments/whatevertermisapplicable to Social Science counterparts.” I’ll be glad to look at your evidence about shifts in History Depts. Neither do many of the leftists on this blog. Education must provide a deep understanding of the past as a foundation to innovate upon. This fact has been demonstrated multiple times across multiple jurisdictions in multiple countries. I have met you both personally but do not know you closely, and am contacting you anonymously, with apologies. Zerohedge just reprinted a open letter sent by a UC Berkeley History professor to two colleagues. This proportion is often used to characterize the criminal justice system as anti-black. “Only fascists talk about black-on-black crime”, ad nauseam. Look arround you – The Walton’s, Bezo’s, Gates – where does their wealth come from ? Conservatism is so lacking in depth that it borrows heavily from libertarianism. You’ve got an inappropriately narrow view of what constitutes science. I think conservatism is really a misnomer just as liberalism is a misnomer for the liberals — if we were back in the days of the Revolution, so-called conservatives today would be the Liberals and the liberals would be the Tories. What has occured is that modern progressivism – post modernism, Cultural marxism, has come to be almost the exclusive perspective – atleast in the mist prestigious towers of the academy.

They already get the free publicity and PR with the mainstream media. Zero hedge reports, “Its authenticity was confirmed by Kentucky State University Assistant Professor of Political Science, … No Antifa murders ? It would be just as bad if it were only for the more conservative viewpoint, but as you and the letter writer point out it leans – not a strong enough word – uncompromisingly to the left. This hypothesis is transforming our institution and our culture, without any space for dissent outside of a tightly policed, narrow discourse. CloverChronicle.com uses cookies. First, it is increasingly rare for any conservative or libertarian to be hired on a faculty, particularly a highly ranking school like Berkeley. Their job is to control the populations and make the world safe for the billionaire donors who endow the universities. No message will more surely devastate their futures, especially if whites run out of guilt, or indeed if America runs out of whites. Conversely in many other fields of science there is no principle that is so dependable as newton’s laws – even though we know those are wrong. Are we really doing the right thing? These types of statements do not amount to counterarguments: they are simply arbitrary offensive classifications, intended to silence and oppress discourse. Some of us took a bold step and emigrated there… So now, looking again over the ocean and seeing the confusion, the divide in society, the harmful thinking raising, the cancel culture etc… I, personally, am very sad, often “lost in translation”, disappointed and alarmed at the same time. That means it cannot predict the outcome of how a specific individual will always react in a given scenario. Our buildings would collapse if we could not trust newtonian physics. The explanation is provided to us, disagreement with it is racist, and the job of historians is to further explore additional ways in which the explanation is additionally correct. This is especially bitter in the Bay Area, where Asian victimization by black assailants has reached epidemic proportions, to the point that the SF police chief has advised Asians to stop hanging good-luck charms on their doors, as this attracts the attention of (overwhelmingly black) home invaders.

It is an immutable fundimental of economics. Who cares? The white van was captured on a surveillance video, officials said, which revealed that the gunman had slid open the van’s side door to fire the weapon….”. The electoral college and the 3/5 compromise were independent. We are training leaders who intend, explicitly, to destroy one of the only truly successful ethnically diverse societies in modern history. Ex college basketball player who went on to coach and now trades the grains in the commodity markets…, and a respecter of science as well I suppose since I once worked in the lab at Yale doing some of the most innovative bio genetic work in the early ’80’s. Ronald Reagan. However, no real discussion is possible in the current climate at our department. well. During times of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act. The difference between hard sciences and soft sciences is the use of the scientific method – controlled experiment. We can not communicate without a shared understanding of the meaning of the symbols we communicate with, nor if the meaning is constantly changing. Now in Europe they understood and understand their contributions to philosophy and grounded their political thinking in their insights. But many are explicitly tied to the riots. An anonymous letter has been circulating, purportedly written by a @UCBHistory professor. It is both a science and an art. Starbucks, an organisation using literal black slaves in its coffee plantation suppliers, is in favor of BLM. One cannot find words that don’t exist. During the pandemic, did you miss the part about epidemiologists being referred to as scientists? Sony, an organisation using cobalt mined by yet more literal black slaves, many of whom are children, is in favor of BLM. Berkeley divides these areas of research into Divisions, not Colleges within the College of Letters and Science.

It would appear that the currently rare practice of socratic reasoning and dialogue could remedy a glaring deficiency in the Berkeley curriculum. Natural science does predict the outcome of a specific event with great precision. David Benson is the God Emperor of Making Stuff Up and owes me forty-five citations (one from the OED, one from the town ordinances and two from the Old Testament), an equation and the source of a quotation, and his mental health professional certificate after eighty weeks, and needs to cite all his work from now on. @LorenzoValla, These types of statements do not amount to counterarguments: they are simply arbitrary offensive classifications, intended to silence and oppress discourse. If you use “an ability to predict specific outcomes of specific events to evaluate whether one’s work is actually science or not,” you exclude the scientific study of chaotic systems, of the random mutations that play a key role in evolution, … Maybe you just don’t understand enough of the full range of work that scientists do. The letter objects to an intolerance at the school for conservatives or those who criticize groups like BLM. It's really worth reading, in a time of widespread panic.

It is very rare to be able to conduct an actual controlled experiment in anthropology, economics, sociology” Oh look, a conditional claim where the condition is false. a predictive model in social science might be able to very accurately reproduce the probability of how a population will behave, but it cannot say what at individual in that population will do.
