Decades of Pampering Pays Dividends

Weep for protesting college students crybabies and brats for pitching hissy fits over hurt feelings -- and us 
  • Everybody Gets a Trophy culture and an educational system that, for the most part, no longer teaches a core curriculum, including history, government and the Bill of Rights.
  • Zealous pampering of the American child that began a few decades ago.
  • Johnny was handed a blue ribbon along with everyone else on the team even though he didn’t deserve one. Today’s campuses are overrun with little Johnnys,
  • Self-esteem is earned, not bestowed.
  • recent surge on campuses of “trigger warnings” in syllabuses to alert students to content that might be upsetting, and “safe spaces ” where students can seek refuge when ideas make them uncomfortable.
  • The marketplace of ideas is not for sissies
  • the world we’ve created for young people who soon enough will discover that the world doesn’t much care about their tender feelings.
