[Ed. – Not sure that’s quite the ideal speech, either, but it’s light years ahead of the drivel most speakers try to sell.]
It is graduation season. I have been going to high school, college and law school commencements since 1977 for my children and grandchildren. … I have heard speeches that are wonderful, boring, inspiring, amusing and pedestrian from graduates and invited speakers alike. Frankly, this is what I think most students need to hear:
Good morning and congratulations! I sincerely believe that most of you came to college with a desire to learn and be prepared for your future. But many of your teachers have skills and ideas that are proscribed by coercive politically correct bureaucrats.
However, you are all victims of a colossal scam for which your parents have anted up colossal sums of money.
You have been ensconced in an academic gulag where you have been programmed and robbed of the intellectual dexterity it takes to listen to, consider and debate opinions that are contrary to those into which you are being indoctrinated.
