Haven’t we seen this program before?

You may want to check out Borderlife by Dorit Rabinyan to see what all the fuss is about. But it’s “not available” on Amazon… hmmm.

‘Empathetically Correct’ Is the New Politically Correct

A generation drowned in douche.  Their sensibilities insulated and protected from strange ideas that might challenge them.  Who will save the children from these discomforting words?

Yes, universities across our rapidly collapsing empire rush to rein in discomfort, as a few whiny little turds have complained vociferously enough to get their way. Everyone can enjoy the new “trigger warning” America, where texts that cause discomfort can be targeted and singled out.  These will be pressured out of schools in a more subtle process than bonfires in the quad.

Personally, that would make it easier for me to find the better books, but I doubt those that need to learn more about the world are going to see it that way.  We already have a nation of splintered fundamentalist groupings, extremist churches, religious insanity.  My own town is full up with so-called Christian nutjobs who wouldn’t recognize Jesus if he knocked on their front doors.

They burned Beatles records too.
