Why are colleges cancelling screenings of ‘American Sniper’?

“In a mature environment, humans often opt—often without much fore- or afterthought—to simply shake off acts of political correctness or incorrectness.

But while today’s college campus is many things, mature it is not. This in itself is a special sort of problem, especially from the standpoint of those who believe that infantilization has set in and America’s teens and twentysomethings are being emotionally disabled by the institutions that surround them”. (James Poulos, The Daily Beast)

Tolerance, freedom of expression and constructive dialogue are issues that are (or should be) part of the college experience for students, along with or as a part of academics. The recent uproar surrounding the film American Sniper and its possible screening on college campuses, paints a different picture. According to James Poulos, from The Daily Beast, “the mission of colleges and universities today is no longer to educate students”.
