I didn’t enjoy my time at UC Berkeley. Even though I didn’t realize it at the time, already then I was fighting Marxist tropes so I found my classes nonsensical. This isn’t sour grapes speaking. Although I found the classes foolish, I still managed to graduate Phi Beta Kappa, etc.
Even though I didn’t like being there, I always respected Cal’s honorable lineage. Up until its Leftward academic tilt, which began in the late 1960s, it was one of the great intellectual institutions in America. The other UC campuses (except for Irvine and Santa Cruz) weren’t so bad either.
UC, though, has become embarrassed by its own history, and therefore redesigned its classy, late-19th century logo. In its place, the UC Powers-that-Be opted for a generic logo that would look better on a bag of mediocre potato chips.
Indeed, the only good thing about the logo is that it’s finally brought everyone on the political spectrum together: they all hate it.
