The Unsafe Space of the First Day of School

The Unsafe Space of the First Day of School

Date Published:

Summary: 
  • Incoming innocents, entering into such an unsafe space as the first day of school, are increasingly less likely to encounter any requirement for inner strength as they face, for the first time, the perils of the world without maternal protection.

  • Yearned-for amendments to the facts of life, previously intended to equip a child against the rough and tumble of the "school of life," have been replaced by the notion that refusing to hear anything that might offend one is not a choice, but a right. Why argue with creatures who have an opposing view when you can simply shut them down?

  • The tech giants, big government, the media, and their willing executioners, are trying to push all opposition to the periphery.
