If you are babysitting a group of 4-year-olds, you know that you can’t praise one without praising the rest. They aren’t yet emotionally equipped to realize that praise received by a friend doesn’t put them in any danger.
As they grow, kids get over it. At least, they are supposed to. Healthy human development leads you to knowing how to deal with praise received by others without falling apart.
This simple and self-evident process, however, is not accessible to the woke crowd. Leftists think that praising one person or group means condemning all others. This is why I had to explain at length why using the words “Hispanic civilization” in a course title doesn’t mean I’m suggesting that somebody else (I wonder who) is “a savage.”
Much of what people take for a political position is in reality a product of immaturity. And it’s obviously not just a thing on the left. If you are in doubt, I suggest you subscribe to the Twitter of a couple of libertarian groups. Or “trad” groups.
