or maybe Cultural Marxism is at fault
This is an outgrowth of the "everyone gets a trophy" movement, which encourages the immature in their natural bent toward pseudosophistication. They go to university and absorb Marxist drivel, and want to please the Marxist authority figures. They are not held accountable for their execrable words and deeds. This might change with capitalists withholding donations and asking for names of students who signed statements of support for those who behead babies in order to withdraw offer letters.
When the real world rises up and smacks you in the face, you either grow up or quit.
