The Rise of Reset Culture

T

Here’s your must read of the day by Ben Domenech. An excerpt:

“The key mistake these Millennials are making is falling into the trap of thinking that freedom from a thing does not amount to overcoming that thing, or having the mental strength and health – just as you have physical or spiritual strength and health – to get through it and past it. It’s the belief that freedom from a troublesome thing means the forced elimination of that thing from your life and your view.

It’s simple: as soon as you demand the right to not have your mental space afflicted by the thoughts/words/actions of others, you’re actually demanding the power to control the thoughts, words, and actions of others. If WrongThoughts and WrongWords hurt your feelings, then obviously the only solution is to just ban WrongThoughts and WrongWords, not learn to deal with how they make you feel.”
