In today's WSJ, there was a letter to the editor that made me chuckle:
Wouldn’t it be terrific if these products of participation-trophy childhoods could be weeded out during the application process to allow for matriculation of deserving kids who understand democracy and who genuinely appreciate the value and privilege of an elite education? I can only hope that this might happen before the entire Ivy League devolves into a progressive-socialist nightmare.
"Before"? As John McWhorter wrote (also in today's WSJ):
The problem is that the university campus is already one of the most exquisitely racially sensitized contexts a human being will ever encounter in America—a place where, for example, comedians such as Chris Rock have stopped performing because audiences are so P.C.
Today's elite institutions are the most politically correct spaces in the world. The real world thus will come as a real shock.
