You are reading page 3 of How Much Leftist Ideology Has Corrupted Nursing?. If you want to start from the beginning Go to First Page.

Where did you come up with that?

The current left's position is fundamentally postmodern. I'd encourage you to check out Hicks book Explaining Postmodernism, it's a literal guide to how the left think:

Explaining Postmodernism: Skepticism and Socialism from Rousseau to Foucault by Stephen R.C. Hicks — Reviews, Discussion, Bookclubs, Lists

Obviously there are exceptions, and I shouldn't paint everyone with the same brush, but the book will give you some wicked insight into the "current" left.

Well golly gee cheez whiz, nursing is a lot of humanities which are definitely corrupting the sciences. I hear the humanities are basically just rapists and drug dealers crossing the border illegally into science.

So maybe a hard right wing science is better. Not environmental science, because duuhhhhh.

But maybe engineering with a specialization in giant wall construction.

**** the humanities. They need to go back to where they came from.

I have literally no idea what you're talking about. I'm gonna guess American politics? I'm Canadian just for the record.

Love learning about people, so long as it's not taught from a leftist perspective. If the humanities courses I have taught to me are not presupposing leftist ideology, I'm game. :)

So, as long as you agree with what you are taught that is OK. But learning something from outside your comfort zone us wrong. You don't have to agree with every theory or opinion out there, but it never hurts to learn that others think differently.

So you read a book and now you are applying it to everything you see.

That's not a scientific way to think.

I think leftists and rightists are both doing a phenomenal job at removing true compassion and pretty much all common sense from anything related to patient care, each for their own political purposes. So you should be fine.

I can't imagine how anyone can pick a side these days, but that's just me.

I am completely dumbfounded by this thread. The OP equates the humanities with leftist ideology, and only has an interest in science courses? And the OP is seeking to become a nurse?

And somehow, the OP doesn't equate science with any kind of ideology, whether left or right.

None of this makes any sense to me!

No, I was asked how the leftist ideology is tied to postmodernism... I pointed to a book which outlines this position. Should I have just not answered the question?

I'm suggesting the humanities have been influenced by leftist ideology.

I don't believe science holds a political position. It's not like the gravitational constant is leftist. lol

I wrote "jeepers" simply because it's a common word in my vocabulary...

My comment was very specific... leftist ideology is postmodern, postmodernism rejects science, the humanities in my experience presuppose postmodernism. This is the issue. I like learning about people and culture, so long as the classes don't presuppose leftist ideology.

Personally I'm fairly "center" in my political outlook. :)

No, your comment wasn't clear and I am finding all your responses to be exasperating. You are still being divisive, and you are bringing up supposed facts which aren't accurate. What exactly is a leftist ideology? I'm still trying to figure that out.

BTW: Post modernism occurs on both sides of the political spectrum. It's not a leftist ideology alone.

You haven't really explained your initial claim (in the form of a question). Are you referring to "leftist" ideology or liberal ideology? What is it about either of those ideologies you feel is "corrupting" nursing, in other words, how are they keeping nursing from meeting it's core standards and principles.

Wow. Where I live, some aspects of science are highly political. For example, the theory of evolution has been rejected by the right. An hour from where I live there is a giant replica of Noah's Ark because folks on the right don't believe in the scientific theory of evolution.

Where did you get the idea that science is neutral, but the humanities are leftist? LOL!

I suppose it would depend if you think (for example) social "justice" and health care intersect. The question was regarding my schooling as well.

I think it would be hard for me to distill the entire ideology down to something very specific, which is why I'm avoiding that. Simply, the left is postmodern and neo-marxist... and it has no business being taught in a BScN program.
