And the Hyperbole Prize Goes to…
A number of you have sent me the Edward Schlosser essay on Vox, headlined, “I’m a Liberal Professor, And My Liberal Students Terrify Me”. It cannot fail to bring to mind the horrors of China’s Cultural Revolution, in which Mao turned the fervor and idealism of students on their professors, creating generational warfare and a “Lord of the Flies” situation.
And that statement cannot fail but to induce some serious eye-rolling.
(I promise I was not intending to post more on this topic,. but I was closing some tabs and noticed his piece that I meant to read the other day—it is more of the same: massive over generalization from one essay with some gleeful cluck-clucking over how liberals have done it to themselves).”
