The Stanford Paradox: An Oasis of Scientific Achievement in a Desert of Political Correctness


Stanford University offers a puzzling paradox. On one hand, hardly a month passes without news of a genuinely significant breakthrough in some field of science or technology. One week it might be the discovery that an unorthodox arrangement of wind turbines increases energy output; the next, the discovery of new healing and antibiotic compounds from scorpion venom.

But for someone like me who does not embrace progressivism, political correctness, or identity politics, the campus’ zeitgeist can be cloying, annoying, and hypocritical. . .
