The Culture of Entitlement without Achievement
September 18, 2012 By Ben Witherington

Holden Thorp resigned yesterday as Chancellor of my beloved alma mater UNC, and one can only speculate exactly why. I would suggest it might have something to do with the man’s integrity. After both athletic and academic scandals plaguing the university in the past several years, and academic scandals helping perpetuate athletic fraud I am not surprised that the man got discouraged and tired of dealing with the culture of entitlement without achievement.

What do I mean by that last phrase? Among other things I mean a culture, nurtured in many educational institutions in the land which suggests that academic rigor and integrity can be sacrificed for various ‘good causes’, causing varying from helping various sorts of students (in this case athletes, and more specifically athletes in the African American studies program at Carolina) graduate, to greasing the wheels of an athletic juggernaut out of control, and yet strangely in control, at the nation’s oldest state university (no rebuttals from dawgs in Georgia please. You had the land grant first, we taught the students first).

It’s not just that the athletic tail is wagging the dog (because after all, we are promised, the tail brings in all kinds of expensive puppy chow for the dog), though that often seems to be true. It’s that even our academic institutions are nurturing a culture of academic mediocrity in order to make sure no one fails, no child is left behind, and as a result no one ever really discovers what there true level of academic ability is. And the Carolina Blue skies are not cloudy all day.

Of course Carolina is not the only school doing this— it’s an epidemic. I witnessed it here in Lexington Ky. this past year where, with a straight face, people at U.K. actually called players like Anthony Davis student-athletes, even though they were brought in to the university with a one and done understanding from the get go… using the university as the diving board from which they bounce high into the NBA (with no intentions of getting a college degree).

And then someone suggested that the real solution would be to pay these one and done players to entertain us. That would be fine if they were performing in an NBA futures league. Not fine if we are talking about amateur athletics at a university, and athletes actually being expected to get a college degree. But this is only a small part of the problem which is perpetuating academic fraud at major universities.

No, a good deal of the source of the rot does not go back in the first instance to our schools which are called upon to coddle rather than challenge our precious offspring (and then someone over-reacts and comes to the absurd conclusion that teachers should be held responsible for the irresponsible behavior of students on standardized tests— see the mess in Chicago).

It goes back to our families which have cultivated an ethos of no accountability, of no disciplining of children, and of defending the bad behavior of one’s children simply because they are ‘my children’.

When I was growing up, back at the dawn of time when the earth was still cooling, parents backed up the teachers and principals when they disciplined unruly, non-performing, disrespectful students.

They didn’t back up bratty behavior by their little darlings. Indeed, the parents would often take their kids home and read ‘em the riot act, far more than the principal had done.

We are now living with the malaise created by a generation of students who think they are entitled to a degree, entitled to a good paying job, entitled to two cars in every garage

“100 Years of Humiliation.“
being called the 'sick man of Asia’.
Now China got the Olympic
(But, officially at least — the 100 years of humiliation ended in 1949)

The dark periods of the post-liberation era…not so much!!!
The Great Leap Forward and the Cultural Revolution.
The enormous suffering wrought

... and the reckless fast growth of wild modernization
at the great expenses of social & ecological destructions

Blame it on lingering feudal elements, bad weather,
and subterfuge by China’s historical enemies.

Blame it on meddlesome former colonizers
and their traitorous lackeys seeking a way in through the backdoor.

But when history is used for the Party’s gain,
it loses the nuance and complexity
- which make history so fascinating.

Like much in China’s educational system,
There is little room for counter-narratives,
- alternative perspectives, or social complexity.

More Than Words

Liz Cheney says terrorists have no rights. Also, you're a terrorist.

In 2010, calling someone a Bin Laden-loving jihadist isn't just meaningless partisan hackery.
Advertisement

Ten years ago, these were just words.

Ten years ago, someone accused of being a terrorist had recourse to the same panoply of rights as everyone else.

Ten years ago, an accused terrorist still had the right to a trial, for instance.

But thanks to people like Liz Cheney and her dad, the Sixth Amendment right to a "speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury" is gone, once you've been branded a terrorist.

Just ask Khalid Sheikh Mohammed. After 9/11, once you're branded an enemy combatant, you can be held for years without any of your constitutionally protected rights, including the right to be told of the charges against you or to confront the witnesses against you.

Thanks to people like Cheney, those alleged to be members of al-Qaida are stripped of their Sixth Amendment right to prove they are not.

But that's not all.

Ten years ago, if you labeled someone a terrorist, he had an Eighth Amendment right to be free from torture, since the very idea of "cruel and unusual punishment" was anathema, even for our enemies.

But thanks to people like Liz Cheney and the brave souls at the Bush Office of Legal Counsel, it's OK to torture terrorists these days. As long as you're pretty sure they're terrorists. This is good news for the Cheney way of thinking, because it means that you can abuse a possible terrorist into admitting that he actually is a terrorist without all that fact-finding necessitated by a criminal trial.

But there's even more. Ten years ago, if some paranoid hysteric accused you of being an al-Qaida sympathizer or a jihadist, you could find a lawyer to help you make the case that you were not. But in the ever-expanding war on the Bill of Rights being waged by Liz Cheney, once you're designated a terrorist, you lose your Sixth Amendment right to counsel.

Because just by representing you—even if you're acquitted—your lawyers become terrorists, too!

Given that the Bill of Rights pretty much evaporates once you've been deemed a jihadi lover of Bin Laden, you might think Liz Cheney would be super-careful tossing around such words. They have very serious legal implications.

And just ten years ago, you could've been detained for a very lengthy period for uttering this nonsense. Maybe even strip searched....

That was probably enough to get you started on one of your little rape fantasies.

Actually no you got it wrong. I gave your mom the Bukake session mom and she was gang raped shortly after. Then she was impregnated with Lucifer(that's you) poor mom.

Harly Honey that act is still in place "patriot act" the winter of 2001 is when the USers stopped being "free" as they call it.

Those dumbass teabaggers think having stock piles of weapons will prevent the US gov't from knowing everything they need to, when deal with these idiots; is simplistic.

I don't like how resistance talks about whites, but there is a lesson to be learnt; Canadians have always adapted to many environments.
