Here’s a story on the ungodly amounts of money spent on amenities for the Snowflakes at university. George Leef sums it up when he writes:
Mere functionality isn’t good enough these days, however.
We talk about the battle between right and left, between conservatives and Communists (in all their guises), and even between the ruling class and the people in flyover country. All of these elements are there and true.
But I can’t help thinking that the battle lines are blurred and muddled because, right or left, we hold quite a few very active and shaping influences, assumptions, and desires, including the idea that things will always get better and better. Due to science, the market, and even government, we have the expectation of more and better choices and an always-increasing level of comfort.
Frankly, I think this has created Snowflakes of us all to some extent. But you see this factor in its purest form at the modern university where no expense is spared to attract the precious little Snowflakes and their parents’ money.
