Goddard College's recent decision to have its students addressed from prison by a convicted cop killer is just one of many unbelievably irresponsible self-indulgences by "educators" in our schools and colleges.
Such "educators" teach minorities born with an incredibly valuable windfall gain American citizenship that they are victims who have a grievance against people today who have done nothing to them, because of what other people did in other times.
If those individuals who feel aggrieved could sell their American citizenship to eager buyers from around the world and leave, everybody would probably be better off.
Those who leave would get not only a substantial sum of money probably $100,000 or more they would also get a valuable dose of reality elsewhere.
Nothing is easier than to prove that America, or any other society of human beings, is far from being the perfect gem that any of us can conjure up in our imagination.
But, when you look around the world today or look back through history, you can get a very painfully sobering sense of what a challenge it can be in the real world to maintain even common decency among human beings.
Living just one year in the Middle East would be an education in reality that could obliterate years of indoctrination in grievances that passes for education in too many of our schools, colleges and universities.

A study by the military on attitudes discovered that people who saw themselves as victims tended to get wounded at a substantially higher rate than those who saw themselves in a positive light. The ones who were least likely to get wounded saw themselves as the battlefield predator. The ones who got wounded saw themselves as the prey.
“If those individuals who feel aggrieved could sell their American citizenship to eager buyers from around the world and leave, everybody would probably be better off.”
And SO would the rest of us...
“Living just one year in the Middle East would be an education in reality that could obliterate years of indoctrination in grievances that passes for education in too many of our schools, colleges and universities.”
Or Africa (pick a country)
Or Russia ((not in a big city but out in the hinterlands)
Or North Korea
