When I met my son’s engineering professor about 12 years ago, he told me that he never grades on a curve.
When I asked him why, he answered “Because no one wants to be driving across the bridge or riding on the elevator built by the kid who got a C on the curve.”
Diversity, Equity and Inclusion;
Social and Emotional Learning;
Critical Race Theory;
ALL programs which effictively dole out Cs on the curve to whomever wants or “needs” one.
They aren’t helping anyone.
They are designed solely to create submission to the modern day power class.
There is no long term plan.
Only the greed of the current generation of oligarchs; and the broad level ignorance of the masses.
COMPETENCE IS NECESSARY FOR CIVILIZATION TO SURVIVE.
You can feel all warm and fuzzy about “lifting people’s self esteem” and “being all equitable and stuff”;
But all the participation trophies and good deeds in the world aren’t holding up the building you’re standing in or the bridge you’re crossing when they begin to crumble beneath your feet or the wheels of your car.
Or curing whatever ills the vaccines are causing or any other natural health concerns which society inevitably faces.
The remnants of the Egyptian Pyramids, the Roman Pantheon and The Greek Acropolis are all still standing.
But the societies have long since perished.
They had what it took to accomplish the most magnificent of human achievments.
But they traded their excellence for lust.
Just as we have.
Something of us may remain.
But it will stand as all ruins do, as the historic tale of what once was great but perished for the sake of human greed, lust, apathy and ignorance.
*Ancient America – if we are remembered at all.
The Romans, Greeks and Egyptians left their enduring marks in physical structures.
We’re leaving our “mark” on a cloud.
