Toxic brew

Cultures that teach their kids that they are victims manage to do several cruel things at once. They program the young for failure and simultaneously create a false sense of entitlement in them. The results are predictably horrible. But wait, there’s more! Since the young haven’t read Shakespeare or the Bible, and since they live in a world of constantly changing technology, they believe human nature is malleable and perfectible, if it weren’t for the meanies out there. Sometimes this leads to lots of laughs, but for the most part it’s tragic.

Odds and ends: nice piece on Shelby Foote. Victimhood, entitlement, perfectible, meanies; hey, what does that add up to?
