J. Budziszewski, a natural law scholar at the University of Texas, wrote a book titled Written on the Heart, in which he argues that all human beings know the difference between right and wrong. Budziszewski calls this capacity to recognize good and evil our baloney meters. We know the difference between elemental truth and baloney without being taught. We know that murder is wrong without reading the Ten Commandments. We know child molestation is evil without consulting a psychology article.
Unfortunately, our universities believe that it is their job to dismantle our baloney meters, causing college students to be confused about right and wrong and about reality itself. For example, American universities now permit biological males to compete in women’s collegiate athletic contests. Thus a person with testicles and shoulders broader than Joy Behar’s ass (Greg Gutfeld’s phrase) can collect a trophy for winning a women’s swimming meet. That’s baloney.
Several state legislatures have passed laws banning biological males from competing in women’s sports. President Joe Biden’s handlers, channeling their inner Joseph Goebbels, introduced a federal regulation that permits biological males to participate in girls’ athletic competition in colleges and schools. More baloney.
What happens to a nation that cannot distinguish between right and wrong? What happens to a society that refuses to recognize basic biology? What happens to a people who allow universities to dismantle our youths’ baloney meters?
America is devolving into an Orwellian society. If we continue down this path, our nation will resemble Russia during the Stalin era or Germany when the Nazis were in power. Hitler, after all, wanted to create a new national church that would replace the Bible with Mein Kampf. Now that’s baloney!
We must repair our baloney meters. We must denounce societal forces that distort basic principles of reality and our innate sense of what is right and wrong. We must stop universities from forcing college students to take out burdensome loans to pay for educational experiences that are intentionally designed to leave them confused, alienated, and morally adrift.
