This is an interesting way of looking at the way people view the world. I am always interested in the questions people are asking, since it will change the answers they accept and how they interpret information.

This shows that the question being asked by many seeks answers that make no sense for people in a different context. The most interesting idea here to me (beyond the 3 cultures) is that colleges create this by having an administration that rewards victimhood.

I finally decided to get A Righteous Mind. I need to start down this path, because I am having more and more trouble understanding anyone with politics. I suspect my brain doesn't work in one of these two camps. I can read philosophers on either side of this and understand them while at the same time not getting the motivations of politics today.

Yeah, it was known this was coming. It makes sense and the social justice activists should be doing this in the current system. It still sucks, since we are going to see the middle ground drop out completely.

I used to own a car. The problem was that it made the person in the passenger seat uncomfortable. I realized this was a flaw with cars in general. I then rented a steam roller and got rid of it.

I now walk everywhere and am very happy. I solved my car problem and my passengers never complain.
