Billionaire Investor Ken Griffin Urges Harvard to Adopt ‘Western Values’

Billionaire investor Kenneth Griffin has called on his alma mater, Harvard University, to embrace “Western values”, saying riots on college campuses are the result of a “cultural revolution” in US education.

Founder of US hedge fund Citadel, Griffin said in an interview with the Financial Times that, over the past decade, the United States “has lost sight of education as a means of seeking truth and acquiring knowledge.”

“Harvard should bring to the forefront the fact that it represents meritocracy in America…,” he said. Griffin also added that schools should “adopt the Western values ​​that built one of the greatest nations in the world.”

Griffin has donated more than half a billion dollars to Harvard University and said in January that he had suspended donations to the school over its handling of anti-Semitism on campus.

“What we see now is the end product of this cultural revolution in American education that is taking place on campuses, in particular, using the paradigm of the oppressor and the oppressed,” he told the newspaper.

“Protests on college campuses are almost performance art…” he said. “Freedom of expression does not give you the right to break into a building or vandalize it,” she added. “This isn’t free speech. It’s just anarchy.”

Griffin’s comments come amid the arrest of dozens of pro-Palestinian activists who have been protesting at universities across the country in demonstrations that have rocked US campuses.

The protesting students are calling for a ceasefire in Israel’s incursion into Gaza and have called for their schools to be stripped of Israel-linked businesses.
