‘Cognitive Infiltration’: Undermining Critical Investigation & Analysis

This story first broke on the Rag Blog. Then it got picked up in the mainstream blogosphere on Salon.com by Glenn Greenwald, whence it found its way to Paul Krugman’s blog and then back to Greenwald’s Blog.

So now we’ve got Harvard, Yale, and Princeton all wrapped up in a “conspiracy theory.” Guess what? The conspiracy is real.

Trust me on this; I’ve been there. I was in the Harvard class of 1969, one of only three Harvard classes ever to be opposed to killing poor people in order to make a buck (1968, 1969, and 1970). After those three classes Harvard changed its admissions policies to no longer actively recruit poor students. Faced with threats to tax its endowments, it made a big show two years ago of again making its admissions policy “wealth neutral”. But then, six months later, Larry Summers’ economic policies decimated the Harvard endowment. So it will be interesting to see how much longer Harvard sticks to its “wealth neutral” admissions policy.
