By theNew York Timesbestselling author: a provocative account of the attack on the humanities, the rise of intolerance, and the erosion of serious learning America is in crisis, from the university to the workplace. Toxic ideas first spread by higher education have undermined humanistic values, fueled intolerance, and widened divisions in our larger culture. Chaucer, Shakespeare and Milton? Oppressive. American history? Tyranny. Professors correcting grammar and spelling, or employers hiring by merit? Racist and sexist. Students emerge into the working world believing that human beings are defined by their skin color, gender, and sexual preference, and that oppression based on these characteristics is the American experience. Speech that challenges these campus orthodoxies is silenced with brute force. The Diversity Delusion argues that the root of this problem is the belief in America's endemic racism and sexism, a belief that has engendered a metastasizing diversity bureaucracy in society and academia. Diversity commissars denounce meritocratic standards as discriminatory, enforce hiring quotas, and teach students and adults alike to think of themselves as perpetual victims. From #MeToo mania that blurs flirtations with criminal acts, to implicit bias and diversity compliance training that sees racism in every interaction, Heather Mac Donald argues that we are creating a nation of narrowed minds, primed for grievance, and that we are putting our competitive edge at risk. But there is hope in the works of authors, composers, and artists who have long inspired the best in us. Compiling the author's decades of research and writing on the subject,The Diversity Delusion calls for a return to the classical liberal pursuits of open-minded inquiry and expression, by which everyone can discover a common humanity.… (lisätietoja)

I think my writing is fascinating; if you’re curious, it’s in the Comments section. But here’s the clipped version. I was at work today, washing dishes, not really listening to the chefs’ banter. Then one of them turns to the other and replies, “Because you’re an asshole, and I’m not.” It was funnier not knowing the context, because when you trash talk like that, it doesn’t really matter who you are or what you’re talking about. (Indeed, sooner or later, you’ll translate it to everybody in your life you’re sufficiently close to.) And so we come to politics. You look at the target, and whatever they do wrong deserves the greatest consideration, and whatever they do right deserves zero consideration. (“Shut up, college students *are* like that! No, they don’t study; they don’t even drink: they just attack people, like animals.”) It’s like listening to a lawyer, or an advertiser, talk. It doesn’t matter what they say, you’re never impressed by their *judgment*. (And being of service is more important than making a name for yourself.)

Executive summary: A superficial-at-best interest in the classics and moral traditions, and an obsession with trashin’ the liberals.

........................

Maybe I can carefully approach the subject more directly.

The more she struggled and thrashed and lashed out against the idea that there is bias in contemporary society, the deeper she digs herself into the hole. From reading this book I was *more deeply* impressed with the important truth that denied bias is pervasive.

.........................

Beneath the mask of anger, she’s probably a little disoriented. “You mean it’s not easy to live in a world distorted by prejudice? You mean my kids don’t look at the world the way my parents did?”

............................

I should probably say that many conservatives don’t brood about the whole thing like she does; most of them probably still just don’t want to look bad, you know, and go at it like that. Which isn’t an endorsement of mine, you know.

..................................

Perhaps the center-point of conservatism, at least as it exists for many people, is ‘distrust of the children’; the liberal counterpart should be obvious. It’s just not always as abandoned to rage as it is here.

...................................

What a disaster it would be to have someone like this ‘on your side’.

..................................

On Cornel West’s Twitter he page says he likes the black Church, progressive politics, and jazz. I like the same sort of things: liberal theology and Christian culture. I suppose we’ve all had times when we’ve felt like the bureaucrats are trying to make us follow unnecessary rules. “And it will lead to our bloody downfall!” Well, we don’t all believe *that*, but.

.................................

“And now that I’m done beating you up because after 250 pages my arm is tired, maybe now you’ll finally respect me.”

.................................

I do not see the appeal of this way of thinking.
