The Virtual Victim and the Graduated Ignorantis

A look at transcendental victimhood, and a look at the creation of credentialed ignorance.

I think victimhood is popular because it is so easy. One need only to identify as a victim in order to claim the special treatment of exceptionalism. The benefit is obvious. You get requisite fawning sympathy and relaxed standards and requirements... if any at all. In California, you graduate because it's your turn, and no other requirements, such as knowledge and testing, are placed on you. Then you qualify for $15/hour to flip burgers, if you choose to actually get a job (no longer required).
