Look around. look at, like, jewish grad school programs. A lot of them have israel trips as a degree requirement. Essentially, they will not let you attain a high status within a community organization without first absorbing a sufficient amount of propaganda
I do think you're soaking in propaganda all the time living in a nation like America, and especially being educated at an American institution. the difference is that you can maneuver to some extent around that propaganda, or maybe you'll find a couple of classic cool professors along the way who help open your eyes. No such professor would be able to penetrate a Jewish grad school program, by the simple fact that they would get weeded out
Increasingly I am dreaming about changing these institutions. The future we could have as a culture fills my thoughts. it is my one source of hope for us. but increasingly i fear that there's no way to ignore Zionism or build power outside of it. and I don't think too many people bite that bullet without ending up dead inside
@evan this is fucked
@Aleums yeah. we've fucked ourselves.
@evan a jewish labor bund for the 21st century, WHEN!?!?
@wintgenstein i've been saying we should draw ourselves up an autonomous oblast. it would be a fun time
@evan i say they give you guys the island of man...
@wintgenstein uhh can we rename it... the isle of WOMAN?
@evan lmfao..my dude
@evan how the heck does this happen? It seems like it isn't hard to find radical Jewish people and yet the institutions are so at odds with it.
@evan I did not know that at all. I have Heard (gotta love academic grapevine) some of the profs here support chabad and that feels potentially hurtful to students.
@Cyborgneticz that is a different but equally troubling idea. if any given professor was shown to support Chabad, I don't think I would be necessarily caught off guard
@evan That makes me really sad that it wouldn't be surprising.
