Cast out of American academia four decades ago, E. Michael Jones, a no-fun, stick-in-the-mud traditional Catholic type, has established himself as one of the most prolific and influential authors of the present era. In this talk Jones discusses his expulsion, as well as the book Degenerate Moderns, an important critique of how the West’s most celebrated 20th Century intellectuals, including Margaret Mead and Sigmund Freud, were driven to produce their “studies” to personally justify their own sexual proclivities and indiscretions.
Especially hilarious (and very true, as detailed in Moderns) are Jones’ vivid recollections of his graduate school days at Temple University and the sycophancy young academics must exhibit to secure their mentors’ recommendations and accolades, thereby advancement in the university system
… And to think many still believe those at the top of the academic trash heap are there because of innate genius and novel ideas!
The fact that Jones doesn’t occupy a cushy endowed chair for his numerous contributions attests to the ideologically controlled and overall decrepit state of higher ed in the 21st century, particularly Catholic higher ed.
In a recent article on LewRockwell.com entitled “Imposing the Steal: America’s Great Struggle Session,” Vasko Kohlmaher explained how a tool of twentieth-century totalitarians was “public humiliation and torment” of those with “wrong thinking.” The targeted individuals were compelled to confess their wrongdoing, apologize to society, and repent for the error of their thinking.
The reason for this is that “To totalitarians truth is as the cross is to the devil.” Totalitarians “force their victims to give up that which is true and accept that which is false.” As F.A. Hayek wrote in the Road to Serfdom, in totalitarian societies “truth” is not discovered by research, education, discussion and debate, and the scientific method, but is merely announced by the authorities.

A Public Intellectual Outside the Protections of the Academy
The Kevin Barrett-Chomsky Dispute in Historical Perspective – Eights part of the series titled “9/11 and the Zionist Question” Read the seventh part here.
Prof. Tony Hall Editor In Chief, American Herald Tribune Co-Host, False Flag Weekly News
Not one aspect of the officially authorized account of 9/11 has been able to withstand the test of close scrutiny by the best of the citizen investigators in the 9/11 Truth Movement. The crude vacuity of the ongoing 9/11 cover up can be seen as powerful evidence that many of our governors have much to hide about their own roles in the lies and crimes of 9/11 and in the subsequent onslaughts of state terror to which the original misrepresentations gave rise.
The persecution of Kevin Barrett in 2006 for doing his job as a conscientious Islamic Studies teacher can be seen in retrospect as telling evidence of government and media collusion in the 9/11 crime. The unfolding of this dark episode involving a devastating betrayal of academic integrity in the Wisconsin heartland of America helps expose those who have the most to lose if the real culprits of 9/11 were to be identified.

She also expressed her agreement with Minister Louis Farrakhan of the Nation of Islam that Zionists and Israeli Jews were behind the 9/11 attacks. “In addition to those falsehoods, Karena shared an image of Jacob Rothschild with the caption, “We own your news, the media, your oil and your government”. Here are the most important paragraphs there from:
