There is no better way to enhance your education than by spending the summer traveling abroad. So we have compiled an itinerary for a summer semester for our campus progressives.
We begin close to home in Venezuela. There you can see the happy masses enjoying the fruits of Socialism. Study how the benevolent government deals with the politically incorrect claims of starvation, promoting solidarity with the happy peasants who sacrificed for Socialism in the 1920s in Ukraine and in China in the 1950s.
Next stop, Cuba, to see how income inequality, at least for the masses, is a thing of the past.
Who wouldn't want to live in that workers' paradise. Besides, they get to drive those classic cars from the 1950s.
France and Italy are next on the list. Here you can find happy college graduates, about 40 percent of them, who are enjoying the pleasures of a permanent summer vacation. After all, what does a job matter when you can go to school free?
For those who missed out on the day without white people at some campuses, a trip to Zimbabwe is on the menu. They've been trying to get rid of white people for years. Enjoy the freedom from oppression which permeates the atmosphere in this showplace of democracy.
Those interested in campus safe zones can journey to Raqqa, Syria, to find the ultimate safe zone. Learn how those with unpleasant beliefs are kept from upsetting the delicate sensibilities of the faithful. Courses are also offered on the proper technique for beheading an infidel.
The climax of the summer semester is a trip to Russia. Student newspaper workers can learn how professionals shield people from hurtful press reporting. See how reactionary voices are silenced and hateful speech against political correctness is eliminated. You may discover that you have more in common with Vladmir Putin than you realized.
Alas, summer ends too soon, especially in Russia, and you will have to return home—if you survive.
If you have learned anything, head to your local church, get on your knees and thank God that you live in the United States of America. Thank God you can say what you want and live your faith without fear. Thank Him that you live in a free enterprise economy where you can find opportunity to achieve your dreams. Pray for the hungry, the poor, the hopeless, the persecuted and the voiceless ones who live in darkness overseas, as well as the campus progressives who have embraced the darkness at home.
Tell your progressive friends that freedom is the only truly progressive philosophy.
And remind them that true freedom comes from knowing Christ.
"Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, 'If you remain in My word, then you are truly My disciples. You shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free'" (John 8:31-32).
