Was there a "university culture" in the past like there has been in the 20th and 21st centuries?

So the dominant culture of universities/colleges now - at least in the majority of Western nations - is one of extreme leftism and borderline socialism, where your political beliefs are oftentimes more important than anything else. Has this always been the case? For example, in universities in London or Paris in the 18th and 19th centuries, what would have been the overall "culture" or mindset of the majority of the students? Would their beliefs have been similarly extremely progressive or leftist, relative to their own time? Or is that particular political nature something unique to our generation and the two before it?

I recall reading something like people cheering up to probabilistic epistemology. They wanted to stick it up to the 'man' since the basic Church doctrine was Aristotelian Scholasticism. Yeah, both sides were clergies. And then there were also Marin Mersenne was the one who kept close contacts with both Descartes and Pascal (among others), pretty much the man behind everything. In the 17th century, not only alternative philosophy like the above probabilistic theory, literal magic studies, atheism and complete skepticism were rampant underground, Mersenne's camp looked pretty tame compared to them (his side eventually prevailed for the better or worse).

There's also the infamous Fraticelli shenanigans in the middle ages that Umberto Eco based his novel from. Also lots of Muslim scholars got branded with blasphemy, heresy or whatever.

So, in general they were even more hardcore than now. College students are pussies nowadays.

Well, I don't know the specifics of your situation of course, but from my experience when a first year gets in a shouting match with a professor, the first year is at fault. I would imagine in your case professor was trying to make a point that race as it exists in public consciousness in the US has very tenuous links to the genetic basis of human differentiation, as can be seen in the one-drop rule, "hispanics", etc. Of course it's possible that your professor was a retard, but in the absence of further information that's not what I'd put my money on.

How?

The fact that you seem triggered that some people think that toppling the provisional government and executing the Tsar's family was a good thing. And those people are still very much sane. A few decades ago you would have had unironic Maoists on campus. Intelligent ones, too. I regret not having had a chance to argue with them. It would have been very interesting.

Universities were always places of progressivism and new ideas (in any political sense) in general you have to take into account that historically the people who went there were the sons of people who have enough money so they don't have to work and that gives, some of them at least, time to read, think and be exposed to different ideologies among their peers/professors.

No, she began raising her voice when a per-med girl explained that there is genetic variation between races. I think the student said that prominent medical journals are acknowledging the reason that African-Americans are statistically more likely to have heart disease is mostly genetic. She made this comment after the professor had said something to the effect of: "all races are indistinguishable and interchangeable in a biological sense."

the first year is at fault
I'd typically agree, but this was just pure, ideological irrationality on the part of the prof.

Because they are Marxists by default, not by way of intellectual inquiry. They have been brainwashed. I don't think the vast majority of them have even read Kapital. So legitimate criticism is usually ignored because it's coming from the political right. What I am trying to say is that making that comparison to somebody who is intimately familiar with Holocaust stories, but has never even heard of the Holodomor, is just ineffective.

Maybe I'm kind of a pussy for being afraid of speaking out, but I don't look at these people like students or intellectuals, I look at them like animals who have been conditioned to think -- and most importantly FEEL -- a certain way about politics. They certainly behave that way, when challenged. If I knew that a dog had been trained to bite everyone wearing an orange shirt, I would typically avoid wearing orange.

Cont. That said, I must admit that when I did attend UC Berkeley, I barely went to class. Maybe I didn't notice what was going on. I doubt it, though...

I just didn't notice any sort of hardcore "let's defend mass murderers" type of Marxism, like what you're talking about.

In Germany in the 19th century the universities, and especially the "fraternities" (Burschenschaften/Studentenverbindungen) tended to be liberal (in the original sense of the word, not the current mangled American definition) and nationalistic, wanting the unification of all Germans. This tended to be the trend for all middle class and educated people. So I guess universities tended to be "progressive" even then, although according to the standards of their time, and certainly not leftist.

MPmaster

Or is it maybe possible that you're blowing the reality out of proportion?

It's possible and even probable. I suppose I'm just paranoid because there is a definitely leftist hegemony in academia, and dissidence is not welcomed for the sake of inquiry. The handful of instances like I described earlier have made me very weary of even engaging in conversation. Even cordial disagreement was met with open disdain, in regards to leftist politics, so I just keep quiet.

I was Libertarian and maybe slightly right of center, when I started college. This environment has definitely pushed me further right.

Does it matter whether it's welcomed or not? As long as you're cordial, if you're met with hostility, you're not doing anything wrong. I mean, I guess there are risks, but I don't know if there's anything serious for you to worry about. Might be, might not be.
Personally, I've only very rarely encountered hostility when questioning leftist dogmas, and I know a lot of progressives. I mean don't get me wrong, I'm not gonna go talk about race realism to some thug on a street corner. But with people who have normal civilized manners and aren't sociopaths, I haven't had much trouble. Basically, I just make sure to make it clear that I'm not a Nazi and that I'm against political violence, and I speak calmly.

Are you being purposefully dense? Yes. Not every Marxist is an economic Marxist, but this doesn't excuse them from reading Kapital and the manifesto. They are still idealogues and their ideology was formed chiefly through tbese works, so they certainly have a mandate to at least read them.

You seem to be confusing the ideology of Marxism with the practice of Marxist History. Again, you shouldn't get to claim that you're a Marxist simply because you agree with this view of history.

Yes considering Western Universities descended from Medieval universities which were UTTERLY INVOLVED IN THE DISCUSSION OF THEOLOGY AND LAW THAT IT TIES THEM TO POLITICS.

Ironically the idea that universities ought to be "politically neutral" is a fairly recent university culture, brought about by -surprise, surprise- 19th century obsession with "hard" sciences applied on fucking everything.

Not really. Colleges are the places where the nutjobs gather, but that's just because it's where young people full of idealism and angst gather if they have enough money to waste their time indulging themselves. It's not indicative of college students at large, nor of what professors actually think (which generally is not given to know, since it would be wildly unprofessional of them to let their political leanings show).
For example, in universities in London or Paris in the 18th and 19th centuries, what would have been the overall "culture" or mindset of the majority of the students?
Paris was overrun by illuminists in the 18th century, while it was divided between conservative catholic revivalists and "socialists" in the 19th.
London was pretty conservative through both centuries, but whigs (in their liberal laissez faire social darwinist leanings) were a large minority.

He appeals to the lowest common denominator of logic. He uses simple "if > then's" and uses facts anyone can google. He's the layman's sensible archetype.

There is a gap between gender and pay, but there's a sensible reason for it. He's the logical one that says that instead of dawning their favorite Trump hat and shouting "There's no pay gap!!!" Because there clearly is. Numbers show on average men make more than women, even at the same job. But righties love him because yes, there is a good, sensible reason for the pay gap. He is literally the middle ground between the mouth breathing Trumptards and the dyke with short purple hair.

Who is? Media itself is just as responsible as anyone else for this, not the actual "public institutions"
When large corporate media outlets and government share and promote the same ideals then the two can be viewed as appendages of the same beast. What happens to echo chambers; which a lot of Unis have become; is that they only deepen themselves further ideologically. Ideally if you were to see this phenomenon happening in the public sphere it would be dissuaded by the kind of open discourse provided by media outlets or Universities. Whatever happened to the free market of ideas? If an ideology or idea set is not beneficial in any way, it falls to the wayside. When you try to suppress attitudes and beliefs what you get is a political Streisand effect. But today these kinds of things only serve to deepen the divide between urbanites and middle-class folk
You mean that part of the country that historically and demographically didn't exist at the time of the revolution
You're trying to put a line in the middle of a continuum where no such distinction exists. You do realize most of White middle America is descended of the American colonists? To say that people are disconnected from the ideals and values of their ancestors since a specific economic class didn't exist in its proper contemporary form is disingenuous at best

In Germany, the NSDAP's student wing (NSDStB) actually had better results in university elections than the party itself. E.g. in 1928, the NSDAP got 2.6% in the Reichstag elections whereas the NSDStB received already 11.8%. In 1930, the National Socialists garnered even 70% in the Technische Hochschule Charlottenburg (Berlin).
