What young people are being taught today

"It's not a good thing to think that you have to earn everything, because that's an illusion."

That quote pretty much sums up most of what is wrong with the political left. It was made by Professor David Weale at the University of Price Edward. Professor Weale is currently on suspension for bribing his students with an offer of a B- grade if they dropped out of his class.

The Globe & Mail article on this disgrace is here.

This is what young people are being taught by the leftists in the teaching profession in this country. That you don't have to earn things, and that you are therefore somehow entitled to them. No wonder there is such a culture of entitlement and an aversion towards personal responsibility: it's indoctrinated into young people at their places of learning. Don't take responsibility for yourself, you are owed a living by the state, and it's OK to parasite off others to get what you want. that's the message young people are getting, and it doesn't bode well for the future of Canada.

I think you've missed or perhaps misrepresented David's point. What he was saying was not so much what you've read into it as that you shouldn't think that what you get is necessarily the result of your actions - that you've earned what you receive. There is in our society a good bit of luck, connections, privilege and so on involved in how we do. We shouldn't get so full of ourselves because we've succeeded in school or in life.
