No Wisdom at Yale University

I assume that you need some smarts to get into Yale University. Apparently, you don’t need any wisdom to get out. Or any good sense to serve on the Art Department faculty.

From the Yale Daily News, we learn that art major Aliza Shvarts artificially inseminated herself “‘as often as possible while periodically taking abortifacient drugs to induce miscarriages. Her exhibition will feature video recordings of these forced miscarriages as well as preserved collections of the blood…” The link might not work. I have a feeling that the band-width has been stretched to the breaking point.

Clearly this woman’s education didn’t endow her with even a speck of wisdom. But what about the Yale faculty and staff? Why didn’t anyone tell Shvarts that her senior project was at least inappropriate, if not immoral? Has the idea of academic freedom or freedom of expression in art become so warped that no one is willing to speak up for decency?
