On Affirmative Action (preferential treatment) in schools

“Rather than trying to protect students from words and ideas that they will inevitably encounter, colleges (and now k-12) should do all they can to equip students to thrive in a world full of words and ideas that they cannot control. One of the great truths taught by Buddhism (and Stoicism, Hinduism, and many other traditions) is that you can never achieve happiness by making the world conform to your desires. But you can master your desires and habits of thought. This, of course, is the goal of cognitive behavioral therapy.” from the 2015 Atlantic article, “Coddling of the American Mind”A further study on the disaster this has created can be found in “The Diversity Delusion” written in 2018 by Heather Mac Donald.
