Gordon you are quite right but a bit generous. The humanities and social sciences are radical leftists. BTW I see nothing scientific in “social sciences,” which ought to be called, at best, social studies or maybe social ruminations.

        It is misleading to label colleges and universities as liberal because
        their humanities and social sciences departments are. The views of those
        in the engineering or business colleges may be very different.
