Ok, at least after 200 years Harvard publicly talks about it’s long tragic history with slavery. And it’s been widely reported that Harvard has been profiting off the deaths of a generation of Americans lost to the opiate epidemic, thanks in large part to the business practices of a large donor, the Sackler family, whose company knowingly lied to doctors about the addiction potential of Oxycontin. So it should be no surprise that Harvard is now coddling up to a Russian Oligarch, who apparently is looking for the respect the Sackler family bought.
But child rapist Jeffery Epstein?! Harvard couldn’t take a small chunk of their nearly $40 BILLION endowment and donate a billion to child abuse prevention and substance abuse treatment to wash the stench of filth off them.
Of course that ain’t happening. Harvard’s behavior will be one “data point” that historians will look at to describe the stunning decline of ethics and moral behavior in our society. Is it any wonder that Donald Trump is in office? That the Catholic Church was proven to be an international sex abuse ring. That we gave out $1.5 billion in corporate tax cuts by borrowing money from the next generation. That our greatest athletes cheat and Sean Hannity is paid $36 million a year to boldly lie to create fear and hate in America.
Seriously. Are we not FUBAR?
