Once in a while something happens that shows the agenda clearly. And what just happened with Dan Williams, a student at the University of Iowa proves it.
What kind of infected teaching could ever cause a student to pen this?:
“There are many kinds of privilege besides white privilege: cognitive privilege, for example. We now know that intelligence is not something we have significant control over but is something we are born with. We are living in a society in which success is increasingly linked to one’s intelligence. This is not to say that intelligence is the only factor that is important. All that is implied is that below a certain threshold of intelligence, there are fewer and fewer opportunities. These opportunities are being shifted upward to jobs that require heavier cognitive lifting or else are being replaced by robots. Thus, the accident of having been born smart enough to be able to be successful is a great benefit that you did absolutely nothing to earn. Consequently, you have nothing to be proud of for being smart.”
What Dan fails to understand is that IQ is merely a measurement of the ability to understand and assimilate information, kinda like the maximum speed a car can travel. It is not an indicator of how much knowledge a person has nor their ability to wield it. I have personally witnessed this via interactions with utter morons at Mensa gatherings. While he is correct that some have higher intellectual potential, we should also understand that biologically, some have better traits as well. Some are very sexy and will have more opportunities to breed, some are muscular and will have better chances at sports, some are fat and will survive a famine better etc. my point however isn’t to suggest that some have unearned advantages and therefore should be penalized to level a playing field, but rather that life isn’t “fair”. Life is a struggle. And the only “fair” that can be had is that one is free to attempt to stay alive, so long as they don’t infringe on others right to do so as well.
The liberal/democrat false notion that the playing field must be leveled needs to stay in Ms. Lilly’s Kindergarten classroom because it has no place in the real world.
