"Pedagogy of Indignation"

What the....

Are these people for real?

These people rationalize violence as excusable--even justifiable--based on the socioeconomic positions of the perpetrators. And intellectualizing it, paradoxically, reduces the meaning of violence. It drains the brutality from wanton acts of violence, reducing them to uncontrollable reflexes of socio-economic, psychological conditioning. This forms the basis of the "social justice" and "economic justice" nonsense that's beginning to enter mainstream public education.

The people who dream this stuff up are perverse, and they're the ones our public schools are taking their curricular cues from.
