History of Civilization to Fall at Harvard? - LexiLine Journal 397

N.S. Gill at Ancient History at About.com presents some materials and links to the possibility that Harvard "may be eliminating the requirement that undergraduates take courses in ancient history and western civilization".

Can you imagine that?

Your average professor, not to speak of your average college graduate, is already a virtual historical illiterate, without a clue, and the specialists in history are not far behind.

The world may be entering a disastrous period where the ignorant rule, even at universities.

This means that the world will have substantial problems to face in the future as stupidity only breeds more stupidity, even at Harvard.

Recently I've heard of some alleged goings-on and statements emanating from Harvard such that I would say, ignorance rules, "especially at Harvard."
However, I think Princeton is even worse...
