They Burn Witches, Don’t They
Among the most recent targets of professional assassination is Professor Ricardo Duchense of the University of New Brunswick. "[M]ulticulturalism," Duchesne writes in The Faustian Man in a Multicultural Age, is "an asymmetrical system in which Europeans, and only Europeans, [are] expected to celebrate other cultures, feel guilty about their own ethnic identity, and behave as universal altruists; while at the same time non-Europeans inside the European homelands [are] being encouraged to practice their I-group ethnic interests."
The curtain has now come down on this wretched
piece of theatre. The university vice-president last week circulated the
following smarmy announcement: "I write to advise members of the University
community that Dr. Ricardo Duchesne, professor in the department of social
science, has provided his notice of early retirement to focus on his own
pursuits as an independent scholar. We respectfully accept his decision and
thank him for his 24 years of service." In the animal farm of the modern
university, the wolves howl, the weasels take care of things.
