Graduating UCLA student Ben Shapiro has been making a splash lately with his subtly titled “Brainwashed,” which documents the way many college campuses “indoctrinate America’s youth.” As the Associated Press puts it:

Ben Shapiro isn’t the only conservative railing against liberalism on America’s college campuses. But right now — thanks to a marketing campaign taking place mostly in cyberspace — he’s the one getting the most attention.

At 20, Shapiro graduates later this month from UCLA, where he has been best known for caustic columns in the campus paper.

Once you step on campus, you quickly realize that you have to take a stand.

I began writing a twice-monthly column for the Daily Bruin. Meanwhile, I was taking notes in all my classes, transcribing direct quotes from professors and writing down the date. Virtually all the anecdotes in my book are endnoted. After I applied for syndication with Creators Syndicate, and they hired me, I decided that it was time to write this book.
