Too high a success rate is often regarded as a sign that standards are not being maintained. It is assumed that only a small fraction of all students can succeed. There is no unbiased evidence that such is the case---because the professors' conviction that only a few students can succeed is an expectation which leads to a prediction that leads to its own fulfillment. Predictions which cause their own fulfillment are not about objective reality, they are not scientific. Such predictions are subjective political acts of choice. Predictions of failure which cause failure are alienative, exclusive, excommunicative; they are evil acts. Students who are the victims of professors who are exclusively dedicated to maintaining standards---need to call attention to the alienative effects of that dedication. Ideals that lead to alienative, exclusivity, elitism and arrogance can not be justified in any fair way as contributing to the welfare of the community; they do not promote the unity of the community. They lead to the disintegration of the community by undermining personal and communal grounds for integrity. Such ideals undermine motivation to be in dialogue, to listen, to share intimate insights. Students need to ask and seek to understand why professors are not free to dedicate themselves to promoting success, integration, unity, cooperation, dialogue, listening, etc. Such dedications are not objective acts. Professors who are exclusively dedicated to objectivity are not free to be helpful to students in need of help. Their dedication to objectivity is a non- objective act which conceals from them the fact that it is a non-objective act. Through that action they lose their freedom to openly and honestly dedicate themselves to anything. They must pretend that all their actions are objective in nature--- because they value objectivity more than they value open and honest dialogue with people who are significantly different. Objective people are dedicated to discovering truths about which universal agreement is possible. They seek to associate only with people who are wiling to agree with them about what are objective facts and truths. Objective people have to be selective about their choice of associates, else their objectivity might be destroyed! (c) 2005 by Paul A.
