Coddling Of The American Mind is about: "How good intentions and bad ideas are setting up a generation for failure"
Well intentioned overprotection from peanut bans in elementary schools through speech codes on campus; are doing more harm than good. But overprotection is just one of the larger trends that we call problems of progress. This refers to bad consequences produced by good social changes.
In this episode we cover the three great untruths that seem to have spread:
- The untruth of fragility: what doesn't kill you makes you weaker
- The untruth of emotional reasoning: always trust your feelings
- The untruth of us vs them: life is a battle between good and evil people
