I Hate When This Happens

So, for the past week or so I’ve been trying to put into words exactly what I think the last 20 years of Political Correctness has wrought in our society; how the focus of the public education system on self esteem (at the expense of real education) has harmed our culture; how the “everyone is equally perfect” mentality has slowly deteriorated this once great nation. And damned if someone else doesn’t come along and put it more succinctly and far more eloquently than I ever could. I give you the great Libertyblog:

The following mindset has gripped a critical mass of Americans:

  • I am wonderful.
  • Therefore I am entitled to all sorts of good stuff (a nice house, a good salary, cheap consumer goods, top-rate health care, a lengthy retirement, etc.) without working terribly hard for it, or sacrificing, or taking risks.
  • But I’m no better than anyone else.
  • Therefore everybody is entitled to all that stuff without working terribly hard for it, or sacrificing, or taking risks.

This is, of course, no basis for a stable civilization in the real world.

Why can’t I come up with this kind of material?
