I know. How oppresive those liberal arts colleges are. They are known for being oppresive. Kinda like those schools that ban dancing.
Ha ha it really depends on one's political and personal background which school someone would fit in best with and which one someone would feel
suppressed in. Personally, I do like Liberal Arts colleges the best - but I am pointing out that the OP is somewhat correct in his assertion.
I think that people are heavily influenced by their surroundings, and that the liberal and conservative factions are becoming super polarized. It is
weird, but I think that we might end up with two different systems in the U.S., one that is super corporate and one that is fairly socialist.
Oh also, religion hasn't really been a factor for me for a while, which is interesting - I haven't been around people affiliated with religion for a
while, and have still found there to be a liberal vs. conservative divide (I mean liberals and conservatives have both their religious and agnostic /
atheist sides to them). This divide is based on economic issues, gender roles and stuff like that -
I am fairly concerned about this polarization, as I think that both factions will be missing some essential parts, and neither one will be balanced -
which will probably mean they will become dependent on each other for a balanced system.
Back to the topic at hand, I think that in general a conservative would be less suppressed in a liberal institution than a liberal in a conservative
institution, but still notice some things that would bother them.
