First egg: Progressive education
An advertisement for a private school in our neighborhood association newsletter reads as follows (remember, this is Austin):
I notice that it doesn’t include “No tuition.”
Second egg: Social construction
“Gender is a social construction.” No, gender ideology is a social construction. Sex is a work of nature. Gender is confusion about sex.
Third egg: Pragmatism on left and right
The mantra of leftist humanities professors that truth isn’t how things really are, but “whatever works,” is very much of a piece with the idea of some conservatives that you don't need the humanities: Just get a business degree. One would think that even businessmen would want to pursue the great questions of life, but no.
It’s come to this: The barbarians are pillaging the city, and the anti-barbarians respond that this being the case, we have to burn the city down.
Means being told that I may do whatever I want.
