Richard Rorty

Richard Rorty was an American philosopher and literary theorist. He was a famous relativist in the American academia, along with Stanley Fish, and believed that there is no fundamental truth outside historical circumstances.

He is a maternal grandson to Walter Rauschenbusch, who was a major figure in the Social Gospel at the turn of the 20th century.

He was also a staunch atheist, and had largely been responsible for the transformation of the university system into left-wing indoctrination centers. He has stated on the record that professors' jobs were "to arrange things so that students who enter as bigoted, homophobic religious fundamentalists will leave college with views more like our own" and "escape the grip of their frightening, vicious, dangerous parents."[1] This also managed to affect even those children from staunchly conservative parents, which indirectly led to Barack Obama being voted by scores of young students.[2]
