MacArthur and ‘High-Risk’ Ideas | National Review

The Three Percent Non-Solution | National Review




In response to The Absurdity of Ibram X. Kendi’s Receiving a MacArthur ‘Genius’ Grant

Jack, you invite me to repeat a story I never get tired of telling, because it is illuminating.

From the Wall Street Journal:

[T]he Atlantic was sponsoring a panel about marginalized points of view and diversity in journalism. The panelists, all Atlantic writers and editors, argued that the cultural and economic decks are stacked against feminists and advocates of minority interests. They made this argument under the prestigious, high-profile auspices of South by Southwest and their own magazine, hosted by a feminist group called the Female Quotient, which enjoys the patronage of Google, PepsiCo, AT&T, NBCUniversal, Facebook, UBS, JPMorgan Chase, and Deloitte.

We should all be so marginalized.

If you want to know who actually has the power in our society and who is actually marginalized, ask which ideas get you sponsorships from Google and Pepsi and which get you fired.

We could add Netflix to the list.
