Emotions

Post by Witness »

Vox wrote:All the old, enlightened means of discussion and analysis —from due process to scientific method — are dismissed as being blind to emotional concerns and therefore unfairly skewed toward the interest of straight white males. All that matters is that people are allowed to speak, that their narratives are accepted without question, and that the bad feelings go away.

So it's not just that students refuse to countenance uncomfortable ideas — they refuse to engage them, period. Engagement is considered unnecessary, as the immediate, emotional reactions of students contain all the analysis and judgment that sensitive issues demand.

Ok, but doesn't every generation think the next generation is too soft? This goes back to antiquity. You can find rants about "The Kids These Days Are Too Soft. They Have It Too Easy." from Roman times.

Dee Snyder's Child: Dad? Were you a transexual?

Dee: No. Your Dad was a transvestite. If he was a transexual you wouldn't be here!

Drummer's Daughter: You look stupid, Dad!

Drummer: That pays for your pre-school!

Drummer's Daughter: I hate school, Dad!

Or the opposite:
The counts of the indictment are luxury, bad manners, contempt for authority, disrespect to elders, and a love for chatter in place of exercise. …

Children began to be the tyrants, not the slaves, of their households. They no longer rose from their seats when an elder entered the room; they contradicted their parents, chattered before company, gobbled up the dainties at table, and committed various offences against Hellenic tastes, such as crossing their legs. They tyrannised over the paidagogoi and schoolmasters.

What good are paidagogi if you can't let your kids tyrannize over them?
"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

Thanks. Seriously though, what are they? Can I get a job as a Paidagõgoi? Would I want that job? Or is it a fancy entertainment term like "Glitterati" ?

You would have to multiply yourself to be a "oi."

Mayhaps settle at being a גוי.

I believe the English word is pedagogue.

Something like a pederast, right? :notsure:

People who believe God or History are on their side provide the chaos.
