The Quartet of Verities

To the new troika of sustainability, closing the gap between rich and poor, and diversity, should be added sensitivity, the need to be sensitive to those with hurt feelings.

The New Troika


At this time of the year, parents and potential college freshman can be seen traipsing around universities and colleges led by student tour guides who extol the virtues of University XYZ.  The typical starting point is “At University XYZ, we teach you how to think, not what to think.  Not exactly.  After explaining that University XYZ is committed to the principles of sustainability, diversity, and reducing the gap between the wealthy and everyone else, then students are free to learn how and what else to think.

Enjoy your tours.
