What has happened to the American spirit?

We've gone from "Give me liberty, or give me death!" to "Take care of me, please."

Our colleges were once bastions of free speech; now they're bastions of speech codes.

Our culture once rewarded independence; now it rewards victimhood.

Parents once taught their kids how to fend for themselves; now, any parent who tries may get a visit from the police.

In Not a Day Care , Dr. Everett Piper, president of Oklahoma Wesleyan University and author of the viral essay, "This Is Not a Day Care. It's a University!," takes a hard look at what's happening around the country--including the demand for "safe spaces" and trigger warnings at universities like Yale, Brandeis, and Oberlin--and digs in his heels against the sad and dangerous infantilization of the American spirit.

Such an important read and definitely a re-read for me in the near future. Every page just has something rich to offer in regards to what is happening in our universities. This book is written by an academic no doubt, but with the wonderful gift of being a communicator. It's very readable and rich at the same time. In short I totally agree with this book.....we've sacrificed truth and we're not better for it. Certainly not our university students. I gave this book a 5 star rating because the thoughts conveyed in this book are probably the best I've read on the topic of "safe spaces" and the manufactured fragile ego's of many young adults. I've loved this quote from pg. 122.

"Ideas have consequences. Education will always lead somewhere--either toward the liberty found in that which is right and just and real, or toward the slavery and ugly hell made of our own dysfunction. As C.S. Lewis states, "All your life long you are slowly turning...either into a heavenly creature or into a hellish creature: either into [one who] is in harmony with God...or one that is in a state of war and hatred with God...To be the one kind of creature is heaven: that is, it is joy and peace and knowledge and power [and liberty]. To be the other means madness...[and slavery]."
