1. Scott Douglas Jacobsen: You spoke on Liberal indoctrination on campuses. Can you give some examples of this, bigger and then nuanced ones?

Seleh: Bigger ones: for me, going to school, it is no big deal to me. For instructors, they have a more difficult time because they have to speak what they know every day. It is much more likely that their political biases will come through when they are lecturing.

I have actually spoken to multiple college professors at my school. They didn’t want this to be talked about in the media, so I didn’t report it. I didn’t mention their names in the media.

But there are a group of professors who feel threatened. They feel like they were walking on eggshells in their lectures. They were careful about what they were teaching, to make sure they didn’t show their political views in class and made sure they didn’t express their views with other college professors.

This was not happening with Leftist professors. It was completely acceptable for them to speak what they were thinking. They would criticize conservatives, heavily. Sometimes, they would talk about conservatives, conservative politicians, religion, and the administration knew this was going on.

It was reported. But they didn’t care. They only reacted to professors who some way or another, not necessarily in class, were found to have complete conservative views. I knew one guy who wasn’t an even professor. He was doing research in epidemiology at UCLA.

He was kicked out for researching certain topics. One example, he did research on Mormons and cervical cancer and cancer in general. He found Mormons who live in Utah and found they had fewer cancer rates than the general population.

He did that kind of research. They concluded, the university, that his research was promoting – he’s not Mormon – a religious agenda. They kicked him out. It wasn’t just that. They concluded that he had a religious agenda.

He is actually back now. He has been at the school for 6 years without pay. That is one example. This person wasn’t even teaching.

2. Jacobsen: Does this speak to other cases or alongside other cases of a growing problem in Academia or the university system broadly speaking?

Seleh: It definitely suppresses Academia. If there are viewpoints that you’re afraid to learn about, then you’ll never know the full picture. If there is a limit to how much you want to know or hear about other lifestyles, then you become infinitely limited. If you aren’t unlimited in your openness to information, then you become infinitely limited in your knowledge.

It limits the extent of knowledge that one can gain from Academia in general. It is a waste of money because you spend a lot of money on an academic education to learn as much as you can.

You are instead having your school with its own worldview. It is afraid to let you know too much.

3. Jacobsen: Where does this leave academic discourse?

Seleh: It leaves it so that the main source of knowledge is the internet. It is the least limited place in order to get your information, especially since the internet is the only outlet for people through social media and for alternative search engines.

I know Google has restricted certain websites. There is always, with growing technology, a comeback for people who feel that they’ve been limited, so they say what they think and feel on the internet.

So, the internet will be the place for them to express themselves when the other platforms are more limiting.

4. Jacobsen: Your articles for Campus Reform covered a broad range of topics.[6],[7],[8],[9],[10],[11],[12],[13],[14],[15],[16],[17],[18],[19],[20],[21],[22],[23],[24],[25],[26],[27],[28] What seem like the general reasons for these trends happening on campuses in California?

Seleh: California is a majority Democrat state so it makes it more likely for incidences of liberal bias to occur there. A lot of the issues discussed on college campuses such as the UC schools were surrounding immigration and race relations.

There are a lot of Republicans in California and public schools in California, but it seems they were suppressed from being vocal about their views. I think that the less you know about something, then the more likely you are to be afraid of it.

The more you are afraid of it, then the more likely you are to want to suppress it. What I think happened with conservatives in California, is that they feel closed off and suppressed, in California I think the conservative population is so silent, in the schools at least, and so shut out, they fear what their views might mean, if they were more vocal, for them.

They do more of these things. The more they are suppressed. It is fear and reactionary politics. They fear to have their views challenged by the Right. They know the conservatives aren’t open about their views.

Conservatives know their views aren’t as comfortable around campus, aren’t as mainstream, so scary. The more foreign those views are then the scarier they seem, so the more suppression has to be done.

The more of these kinds of Leftist suppression tactics occur. The more interventions to try and push one political agenda forward.

5. Jacobsen: Do these trends extrapolate to the rest of the US?

Seleh: Yes, definitely, it is like this in California. It is far Left. Their school system. Other places like Seattle, Washington, DC, New York. A lot of places are like that, definitely more peer pressure.

I think California is not alone. It is like that all over the country. It could be that in other parts of the country there are other smaller states and different viewpoints, so the politics may not be as reactionary.

6. Jacobsen: Some contentious threads between the Left and the Right of America based on the Campus reform articles: American Dream, climate change, diversity, economic inequality, immigration, marriage, racism, sex and gender, and sexual assault. Let’s explore those as queries to you, what hopes and principles (and, of course, dreams) comprise the American Dream?

Seleh: I think it used to be an American Dream of whatever you want to accomplish. Upward mobility is attainable and as we move towards a more socialist society, or a less free market friendly culture, the American Dream becomes less about attaining what you want to and more about everybody being equal.

Everybody has the same amount and doing the same things. In a video that I did, I interviewed students on what the American Dream was. Most said that the American Dream was the idea of the equal outcome, equality of outcome.

I think that reflects it depending on your political view. It used to be equality of opportunity. Anyone can attain anything they want, but now as we move towards a more modern global society; it is about everybody having the same amount.

7. Jacobsen: Does climate change/global warming exist to you? If so, how much as a result of human activity?

Seleh: I think the climate is changing constantly, but that is not necessarily something we could or should try to interfere with. Just as organisms adapt to their environments, the environment adapts to us. Certain atmospheric qualities might be changing but so are numerous other Earth systems, on a daily basis. I think trying to control the inevitable on a state level, instead of encouraging further environmental research on how we can ourselves adapt to our ever-changing environment, can lead to a monstrous waste of tax resources.

8. Jacobsen: Do diversity policies on American campuses deliver on their purported ends? What policies would reduce divisions?

Seleh: No. They are a recipe for more race-based politics and further divides.

9. Jacobsen: Does economic inequality exist as an injustice by its nature, in most of its forms, in some of its forms, or not at all?

Seleh: No, I don’t believe economic inequality exists as an injustice in a free society. Cultural paradigms, marketing trends, and demographics are constantly changing so as long as there is a spectrum of “winners” and “losers” there is always the opportunity of moving up and likewise, the risk of falling down. That is, of course, most possible where external intervention is limited.

10. Jacobsen: What seems like the best manner to deal with illegal immigrants, and to set the laws to define legal and illegal immigration status – in addition to appropriate management of the border and enforcement of the law in the US?

Seleh: The first step would be to enforce existing laws, which would mean having to do the “dirty work” racked up from previous administrations. It is making sure the borders are being enforced. No matter the strictness of the laws, it is making sure everyone is following the law.

It is making sure nobody is getting out of it (the law). I don’t know what should be done about DACA. I have a friend who is DACA approved. He has lived here most of his life. He is a like a normal citizen here. I know more than one actually.

Those I know are not freeloaders. They are more responsible than most American citizens I know, very hard workers. They work off the books or for people not asking for their papers. I think that the injustice done to them was a lack of law enforcement.

They came across the borders with their parents or groups of people their parents hired. Because it was so easy for them to cross the borders, the ones I’m talking about are Hispanic.

If you had an opportunity to get into the US, and others can, then it is rigged. If others can, and you aren’t, and if nobody is punishing you for crossing the border, then they are telling you that you can do it.

They are allowing you to cross the border. They are punishing you afterward for not enforcing it in the first place – which is their fault – is an injustice. I don’t think DACA approved kids should have their status taken away from them.

I don’t that’s fair. I think it was our fault for not enforcing the law in the first place. These kids grew up here and have their lives here. It might be good for  morale, “We enforce laws.” But there is no point in deporting DACA approved children because the whole point is to show that we’re taking our laws seriously now.

If so, then first and foremost, we should have been enforcing them. Trump promised a border wall. So, the first thing he should do is build the wall, not taking away DACA status from DACA approved people.

It was not a clear enforcement of what we expect from people who immigrate here.

11. Jacobsen: What seems like the best definition of marriage to you?

Seleh: I see marriage as a binding social agreement between a man and a woman to ensure monogamy and a vessel for stable procreation.

12. Jacobsen: This definition implies secular and religious compatibility. What differentiates appropriate secular and religious here? What differentiates binding social agreements between a man and a woman for monogamy and stable procreation?

Seleh: I don’t see marriage as necessarily a religious institution. Most of the benefits of marriage aren’t necessarily tied to being religious. It is about stability. I don’t think the benefits of marriage are tied to religion or even necessarily community, or ideology.

I think it is just an agreement, like what I said before. It is an agreement people make in order to lead a stable family that can grow in a healthy way.

13. Jacobsen: What makes for a reasonable separation between civil partnerships and marriage (as defined in the previous question)?

Seleh: Civil partnership versus marriage, civil partnership is for people who want the same things out of a marriage, but generally with less commitment. If you want to have the benefits of marriage, which are never being alone and having a stable home, and always having a home with someone and being able to rely on a partner to help build a family, and with less commitment and not sure of what you want for your future, then you can call it a civil partnership.

The stigma around marriage is that it is forever. Not the stigma, but the idea of marriage is something that is forever binding, I guess someone who doesn’t have a commitment that you can get out of as easily.

Civil partnership is less long-term.

14. Jacobsen: What do you think are some of the bigger draws for women with marriage? What do you think are some of the bigger draws for men with marriage?

Seleh: For women, it would probably be a sense of emotional stability and for somebody to rely on. Both emotionally and physically, it is much harder for a woman to be sexually active if she is not in a marriage for a lot of reasons. It is less rewarding and less safe.

For a man, I think the same thing. I am basically repeating the same thing for men and women [Laughing]. It would be stability. A man would be able to rely on his woman. I guess men might care less about depending on a person as much as women.

I can say what women want because I am a woman. But what men want, when I hear men talk about marriage, for them, it is a source of pride when they talk about wanting to get married and have a Mrs. and having kids, and a home that is theirs.

They talk about it as if there is a sense of ownership: “This is mine.” To them, it is a thing about pride. It builds into other parts of their confidence. Their sense of self. That’s the idea I get whenever I hear men talk about marriage.

They talk about it as a sense of self-worth. Men who are married and then the idea of having your pride.

15. Jacobsen: Do movements like Black Lives Matter seem justified in the 2010s because the US is as, or more, racist than the pre-1965 Civil Rights era – or simply justified at all or not at all?

Seleh: Racism probably still exists in America – but I don’t think it can be compared to the pre-Civil Rights era. I’d attribute a lot of today’s prejudices to politically charged racial separatist movements like Black Lives Matter. They’re like a female prostitute complaining about female objectification. Those people are simply part of the problem, not the solution.

16. Jacobsen: With President Donald J. Trump, some predict the dissolution of aspects of both the Democratic and Republican parties. Does this seem accurate or like hyperbole to you?

Seleh: Yes, it seems pretty accurate to me. Identity politics is definitely one of the reasons. There is in Obama what people see as ineffective because we were too afraid. PC, politically correct, culture was having politicians and others being too eager to please.

Trump is someone who is a developer. He has a go-getter mindset.
