7. For 30 years ultraconservative billionaires

have been funding schools of economics, law, government, etc., at most American universities to move their fringe ideology into the mainstream, displacing mainstream thought and moving an entire nation right.

Want the money, turn your heads to the ideology being pushed. The laissez-faire, anti-regulation, privatizing, anti-taxation form "neoliberalism" takes today is of course extremely right wing.

Grimly, UCLA I believe was one of very few to say no over the years, and perhaps yours also -- although you might want to be careful where you pursue an advanced degree. These schools have very benign-sounding names that give little or no clue to what their occult purpose is, and of course it's not in the prospectus.

Btw, what a great field to study. If I could go back...
