Stop providing tenure and make everything merit based.
No safe spaces
No cry spaces
Liberal arts should not be subsidized by the state or federal government

I certainly care about free speech. The media can say about anything they want.
As for academia, there is room for conservative thought. As in engineering. But by and large, teaching and academia will be populated by more liberal leaning thinkers.
We all care about our nation's future, and a big reason why we on this forum in the first place. We might have different views and ideas on how to get to a better future place.

No it's not. It's about that vague but obviously biased definition of 'we'.

The media and academia are liberal and progressive because those are the inevitable outcomes of knowledge.

Whereas conservatives are defined by fear and loathing of what they don't know.

Trust me, these professors do not like being challenged. They can't handle debating someone who actually has real life experience that can call him/her out for their lies and bullshit.
Very well put, and an actual realistic direction to head in, as well. I LIKE IT.

Oh... I see. So conservatives need not try to compete in any other fields of discourse. Those are reserved for "liberal leaning thinkers". Got it.

Liberalism is the absence of knowledge combined with base emotions and everyone knows it.

Of course they are free to compete. Or go to a conservative based academic institution.

Are you an example of this knowledge?

Can you provide examples of your knowledge?

I see the media and academia are people who cannot succeed in the practical world and live in a theoretical world.

One example is the theory that Marxism can work and would be best for society as a whole. This theory is widely accepted in the media and academia.

Has it worked in the real world?? Could it??

With almost 100 years of real world experiences by many different cultures, sacrificing millions of lives, proves Marxism does not work. Yet, it is still embraced. Why? Your version would work this time?

The idea that you don't know how is comforting. I have no use for the media but would prefer you leave our educational institutions alone. Let young people learn. Assuming you went to college, are you damaged because of it or did you somehow graduate without this evil brainwashing so many talk about on these forums?
