As we witness acts of hate violence on our own campuses bred from ingrained stupidity,
as we watch politicians and pundits spew bullshit and lies,
as we incredulously stare at the selfish, greedy ways of our politicians, bankers, and CEOs,
as we consume media that gives crazy impressions about body image and gender-appropriate behavior,
as we live in a country where you already have strikes against you if you are LGBTQ, black, hispanic, muslim, woman, disabled, old, poor, and/or atheist,
and as many of our fellow Americans question the worth of rationality and a good education...
WE NEED TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS.
We can no longer sit idly by as many of today's loud voices are not the right voices. They are not the voices of reason.
In the ongoing war by many well-reasoned people against the irrational, I hereby announce another front, The Critically Pissed. The hope is that many of the students and faculty at the University of Wisconsin - Whitewater will rise up to make our mark against the rising irrationality of our country.
We are going to think critically, write critically, and be pissed critically on those issues that matter to us (and should matter to you).
