[VIDEO] Heather Mac Donald: How Much More Delusional Can University Students Get? 

Heather Lynn Mac Donald (born 1956) is an American political commentator, essayist, attorney and journalist. She is described as a secular conservative. She has advocated positions on numerous subjects including victimization, philanthropy, immigration reform and crime prevention. She is a Thomas W. Smith Fellow of the Manhattan Institute.

In this clip, she talks about delusional university students who see a threat in anything even though they are the most privileged people. Until this victimhood complex stops, there can be no win for free speech.

    It is an interesting facet of human nature that the more we have the more we want , and it applies across the board not just to students .
    Who does not think running hot water , showers and baths are essential? and many would add a motor car to the list. Unfortunately to the list of essentials education has been added and by that not just the three Rs but degree level material must be available for all.
    No thought has been given as to whether everyone is capable of three years of intensive study that goes without saying.
    Now in our free ( tongue in cheek sometimes) western democracies business quickly turned the eye of profit on this new situation and decided it was a big money spinner. The also lobbied governments who were education crazy to come up with lots of doe.
    The last thing anyone considered was where would all these highly qualified people go some may end up in Tescos loading shelves.
    Some of this innocent student bait has ended up in horrendous debt while in the UK we have university chancellor’s earning in excess of 400,000 pounds per annum.
    So is it the students who are delusional ? not at all they are the victims of circumstances chasing the promises of a high lifestyle, pushed into studenthood or as Dylan might put it only pawns in the game.
    In any society there will always be jobs no one wants but that every one wants done . If we were to apply the law of supply and demand everyone seems to think is so wonderful then we need to make those jobs more worthwhile financially.

      The ‘law of supply and demand’ (that everyone thinks is so wonderful) that kersten refers to is also called “reality”. More people should visit reality sometime. Universities don’t live in that world, it’s a feudal system that isn’t connected to normal supply-demand reality. Instead, it enriches itself without providing a service to its customers. Or, providing a declining service that has decreasing value, while charging more and more money, every year. Nowhere in the normal economy could this happen. It’s an artificial, insulated reality where they can preach anti-Western, anti-Enlightenment, warmed-over Marxism, and poisonous anti-free-market nonsense, while enjoying the unearned rewards (taking increasing amounts of money from the parents of students, or their students future labor) of other people’s actual labor. “we need to make those jobs more worthwhile financially”? Who is “we”? Leave ‘we” out of it. You’re talking about you. You want to artificially inflate the wages of low-wage jobs? With who’s money do you propose to do this? Someone else’s money, I’m sure. This sentence is hysterical, and proves Heather Mac Donald’s point: “not at all they are the victims of circumstances chasing the promises of a high lifestyle, pushed into studenthood..” So let me get this straight. The students (in the most privileged place in the modern world, getting higher education) have no responsibility for their actions, or their fate. They’re the VICTIMS, who are “pushed” into “studenthood”. Oh cry me a river. You can either have a free society. Or you can be a victim. You can’t have both.
