|A population curve for irritability.|
In the case of the current college lunacy, you've got almost an entire generation who have had social justice themes shoved down their throats for years. I figure that irritability, for lack of a better term, is distributed on a Bell curve with those above the second standard deviation naturally cranky and confrontational.
By giving them fuel for their crankiness and all the same fuel at that, you've created a cadre of social justice crazies who can't be controlled. Had the education establishment been a bit more balanced, these cranksters would be distributed throughout a whole variety of crusades. Instead, we've worked our hardest to concentrate them in a single area.
Well done, education industry. Like Victor Frankenstein, you've got a real mess on your hands.
