Yeah, this trend in our high schools and universities is very disturbing. I don’t know why these kids are trending to intolerance. As an activist (and the son of activists) it’s been shocking to see so many stories of “social justice warriors” and the bullying that goes on. It’s actually to opposite of what social justice should be!
I spent 2 semesters at Harvard last year and saw some of the issues discussed in the article above and in the Atlantic article in the link below, but it wasn’t as pronounced as in these and other stories I’ve read. I hope the freshman welcome letter issued at the University of Chicago is the start of a reversal and will allow those with the right intentions and mindsets to reclaim the movements.
