New Victorianism

People who keep saying that college degrees in the Humanities are useless are so confused. These degrees are now going to be about teaching you how to talk, act, and present yourself to the world in a woke way.

This will separate the proles from the non-proles a lot more than before. Like in Victorian England you sent your daughter to a boarding school to learn how to behave as a lady, you will now send kids to college to learn how the complicated and ever-evolving rituals of “anti-racism.”

The rituals of politeness in Victorian England were about making sure that class divides couldn’t be bridged. You’d know a lady or a gentleman from someone who wasn’t in a second. Today we are seeing a similar thing. Only the people who are willing to pay a lot of money to learn to behave as an upper-class person will be allowed to enter a shrinking job market. The rest won’t even be allowed to try.

    Oh god… a generation of mewling self-righteous Robin DiAngelo’s, oozing unctuous self-righteousness while savaging black people (a lot of what she says is purely vicious – she must hate, hate HATE black people).
