“Woke” students and faculty at Princeton want the statue of John Witherspoon (1723-1794), the Presbyterian minister who was Princeton College’s sixth President, removed, post-haste.
In response, George Will, Opinion Columnist for The Washington Post, writes,
“The fires of wokeness will soon be starved of fuel by the sterile monotony of wokeness’s achievement: enforced orthodoxy. Campuses are becoming burned-over places, sullen about the scarcity of things to deplore and cancel within their gates. Beyond those gates, society increasingly regards academia with, at best, bemusement.”
