ACTUALLY, I THINK SOCIAL-JUSTICE ACTIVISM IS A SIGN OF PRE-EXISTING MENTAL ILLNESS: Robby Soave: Liberal Activism Is Giving Students Panic Attacks, Depression, Failing Grades. Life outside the safe space is even harder, though. “I don’t begrudge students choosing activism over classes. If that’s what they want to spend their time on, fine. But their anguish seems grossly disproportionate to their situation.” Well, that absence of any sense of proportion is a hallmark of neurosis. And actually, given that students at universities — whether public or private, it doesn’t really matter — receive massive taxpayer subsidies, maybe they have a duty to actually focus on their education. Otherwise they’re just privileged top-percenters, living off the toil of the less fortunate.
