Comments: Notes for a White Kid in University:An Introduction to the Blindingly Obvious
And how do we assess for the billions of humans whether their world is becoming a kinder, gentler, more respectful world?
What is the calculus functions' variables and constants defining progress toward the desired objective?
Is there an agreed to objective? If so, what is it? Less serious disease per capita, less malnutrition, less abuse of men, women, and children, less callousness, less deliberate stupidity, ..., more ...?
What are our priorities, our hierarchies of values?

Well Howard, today's idiots for the most part aren't studying anything remotely close to those subjects.
Most are hidden away in their safe spaces awaiting the second coming of Joe Stalin and the Great Socialist Revolution.
A bag of hammers knows more of current events than the current crop of indoctrinates.
There are some who are engaged in actual education; of those one does not hear much. A safe guess is that they are shunned and stay out of sight for their own safety.
