BEN DOMENECH: The natural answer for some time among certain corners of the right has been to build up alternative sources of information or institutions of their own.
TIM STANLEY: Ja.
DOMENECH: But there’s certain necessary restrictions that come into place there, jy weet? One is simply a lack of donor interest. Byvoorbeeld, while there are numerous universities and colleges in America that have and espouse pro-Western values, many of them are religious. Ander, like Hillsdale, are not. And they have, jy weet, a handful of these that advocate for an alternative.
But those will always be dwarfed by the gigantic funding that flows through both private, but especially public institutions of higher learning. You’re never going to have something as big as the University of Texas. But at the same time, the restrictions that are put in place on many of these alternative, jy weet, institutions that would compete with the big houses of culture, education and the like are very frustrating for a lot of people. Jy weet, you might have the cultural content, byvoorbeeld, is time and again the exception that proves the rule where you might have a very successful right of center director or creator who’s able to have a very popular show that is, jy weet, an American Western. Jy weet, byvoorbeeld, the most popular show on cable today is a dramatic Western [“Yellowstone”] that’s written and created by someone who is right of center and openly so.
