WATCH: The Hidden World of Campus Conservatives

StaffRebel Columnist

Reason has a new video documenting the mythical creature known as the Campus Conservative.

Claremont McKenna Prof. Jon Shields, who wrote a book about Conservatives in academia, provides insight on the rare Conservatives on university campuses and explains how Marxists greatly outnumber those on the right.

He explains how Libertarians are tolerated because economics are a much different animal.

“It’s also the case that libertarians tend to gravitate toward economics,” Shields said. “It’s a much more tolerant place than the rest of the social sciences.”

Shields also has some interesting things to say about universities being so-called “liberal indoctrination camps”.
