Bulverism, Education & Guilt

From the HUGHHEWITT.COM WEBSITE ARTICLE

Been quite the week in education.  We started with the host briefly discussing a piece in City Journal by Bari Weiss entitled, “The Miseducation of America’s Elites.”  Written from a right-leaning perspective the piece examines the invasion of critical race theory into America’s exclusive, private secondary schools and how it is eroding any meaningful meritocracy.

On Friday the host devoted virtually the entire show to urging listeners with children of the proper age to use their stimulus payments from the bill just passed to put their kinds into reasonable, private education like that offered by Catholic or Lutheran schools.  The host’s point is a good one because the public school system is moving into the dumper even faster than the elite preps, but more importantly the Dems own-goaled in this stimulus deal by effectively creating vouchers.

The week was then topped off by a piece in The Atlantic by Caitlyn Flanagan called “Private Schools Have Become Truly Obscene.”  Ms. Flanagan writes very much from the left and is even more damning that Ms. Weiss of these expensive and exclusive schools.  Being of the left Ms. Flanagan excoriates such schools for their hypocrisy – playing at “woke” while being incredibly exclusive.  She quotes an anonymous Instagram account formed in response to the woke initiatives at one such school in Southern California:

On the one hand we can laugh at this latest example of HW’s comical embrace of Radical Chic. But on the other, our kids are being taught terrible values: that hypocrisy and dishonesty are fine so long as you virtue-signal the right fashionable politics. And that those fashionable politics are basically meaningless—they are just for show, a way to make being privileged and wealthy truly guilt-free.

Finding Balance

George Dunlap, March 19, 2020, This morning when I got up I expected the same #Death, #Doom and #COVID-19 news updates. Yesterday I was asked to cancel our Saturday morning gatherings. Even our Easter Lenten services have been shut-down. I am having a hard time with that…….. But I found this article from a gentlemen I follow daily and I am inspired once more, that, others also say, “Balance” is needed. We must look to God not our Government for strength, and we must take personal responsibility of our Cleanliness. Please read on and May God Be with you.

I need to point everybody to what I consider one of the most important tweet threads I have read through this whole coronavirus thing – From Brian Wesbury.  Highlights of the 7 tweet string:

…even a 30-day lockdown won’t make the virus go away. In fact, going to the grocery store potentially exposes you. So any solution other than complete martial law shows a willingness of leaders to risk some lives.

The US should: A)Test as many as we can. B)Build up hospital capacity. C)Protect the vulnerable. D)Announce that we will extend the shutdowns for only 10 more days. E)Let businesses start opening, with common sense safety practices F)Quarantine or hospitalize the sick.

Yes, this virus kills, but they all do. And, according to much research, recessions and unemployment kill too. The government will permanently expand and risks to growth and health will increase.

I have been thinking along these lines all along.  Yesterday I tried to point out that shutting down the world represents an enormous shift in our view of the value of human life.  Let me be more blunt.
