Legally Mandated Safe Space

It truly is generation snowflake.

People are so scared of reality and how learning truths may affect them, that they are to be protected at all costs:
https://www.theguardian.com/environm...litical-review

It is about time we stopped worrying about whether things were politically correct! It is crazy, it seems we cannot have free speech because of some cry-babies.

I am sure no-one who wants to defeat political correctness will be in favour of this!

Re: Legally Mandated Safe Space

The Guardian is not in Trump's court. Never has been. Articles are skewed and twisted.

Concerning the EPA, I have read the site that is owned by the EPA is being updated, upgraded and spruced up. Trumps Administration has nothing to do with the site.

Safety is an Illusion.

BUT..."Safe Spaces"...that is just too funny

Holes burn deep in your chest,
Raked by machine gun fire.
Screaming soul sent out to die,
Living mandatory suicide.

Re: Legally Mandated Safe Space

A spokesperson for the EPA's transition to the new administration said, "We'll take a look at what's happening so that the voice coming from the EPA is one that's going to reflect the new administration."



Sigh, my wife gives me the speaking treatment.

Oh, I think I can one-up this with some of the Left's antics at the University of Kansas...

I'm a lot less concerned with someone reviewing the EPA's published works and recommendations, than I am with Universities labeling anything to the Right of Nancy Pelosi as FASCIST™ and demanding that such wrong-thinkers be turned over to the authorities...

Re: Legally Mandated Safe Space

There is a disturbing trend among the political elite, on both sides of the aisle, towards a department of propaganda. I'm just old enough to remember how dangerous the idea of political sanitation of news can be. I'm not any more happy with either of these stories. The attitude behind them is scary.

Stopping the publishing of scientific papers is bad.

Stopping the research - the inevitable next step - will be far worse.

Lawrence KS is a bit of an outlier... Not to be taken seriously. Nice place, but in the grand scheme of things not representative of academia.

Oh, we can document ad nauseum Academia's anti-free speech and general anti-liberty attitude...

I mean, Northern Michigan University banned talking to someone about having thoughts of self-harm and being depressed, under threat of discipline...

University of Minnesota--Twin Cities enacted Ideology tests for all new hires... (If you're not a far-left anti-white, anti-cis / hetero etc progressive, then you're not getting the job)

and on and on...

In fact, there's nothing intellectual at all about Academia, it appears. It has become purely about ideological hegemony and indoctrination.

Re: Legally Mandated Safe Space

My family has 10 + 10 + 6 + 4 or 30 years in higher education, in a variety of universities, public and private, in different states.

You're imagining things...

But, just for kicks, how many years of postsecondary education do you have?

Yes, someone needs to shut them up.

Not really a fact, nor new. It was the same way when you were young and idealistic but that was your/our ideological hegemony and indoctrination so it was ok?

There has always been and will always be conflicts among groups and individuals. Young, old, conservative, liberal, labor, booshwah, impure, religious and religions, cultures, ethnicities and on and on and on. I try not to be a overly sensitive fearful liberal or conservative snowflake as I meander on both sides of the political spectrum depending on the issue.

It'll be ok. Have faith. If it's "end times" there's little we can do to stop it or predict it. His will will be done.

I wish I could say everything in one word. I hate all the things that can happen between the beginning of a sentence and the end. ~ Leonard Cohen

Re: Legally Mandated Safe Space

Editing Scientific papers is equally bad. Publishing deliberately misleading statistics is equally bad. In the end self censoring is as bad as government or special interest censoring. I get equally worried when celebrities and politicians start making statements like "that NEVER happens".

Sadly, this is the status quo. Jacksonian politics. When the "Left" is in charge, it forbids the publishing for data it doesn't like, and when the "Right" is in charge, they do the same.

Look at how the Justice Department under Obama stopped publishing data regarding race and crime, which had been published up until his taking power, for example. Or tasking NASA with American-Islamic relations? Where was the Left, screaming "NOOOOO!" when these happened... oh yeah... they were busy enacting them.

It's wrong for both sides to do it.

Why can't our colleges and universities be places of strictly learning instead of hangouts for the far left? Maybe the end of the Obama administration will help to end that.
