I am too tired to rant about the inherent foolishness of it all. I'll let Professor Hanson do the ranting. He's better at it anyway!
I add the new blog tag "social engineering," because I think we're going to be seeing a lot more of it, driven by the elite/governing class who think they know better than us individuals how we should live our own lives.
For the last time: there is no way to guarantee equality of result without introducing punitive measures and glorifying mediocrity at the expense of real merit. The only thing we can aim for is a reasonable attempt at equality of opportunity.
Also: we'd be a lot better off if, instead of whining about equality and "level playing fields," we stopped playing the grievance violin, took responsibility for ourselves, and adopted a WORK ETHIC. As the Roman poet Virgil wrote centuries ago, labor omnia vincit -- "hard work conquers all." The man's got a point.
OH YES, A DEAD WHITE EUROPEAN IMPERIALIST ELITIST MALE SPEAKS FOR ME. I expect the campus diversity-multiculturalism thought-police to come bursting through my door at any moment now.
