Russell Kirk Never Met the UW-M LibArts Department

Russell Kirk on a liberal arts education:

I mean that liberal education is conservative in this way: it defends order against disorder. In its practical effects, liberal education work for order in the soul, and order in the republic. Liberal learning enables those who benefit from its discipline to achieve some degree of harmony within themselves.

Well. That's not even close to the objectives at the UW-M LibArts Schoo.
