Protection

Jonathan Haidt interviewed:

'Something like 70 or 75 percent of America is now in a protected group... And now you have to try to explain social problems without saying anything that casts any blame on any member of a protected group.'

It's a disaster to tell people in these groups that they need a lot of special protection. It sets them on the wrong path - the path of complaint rather than the path of performance.

They tell you you're under duress,
and lead you away from success.
