The Decadent Culture of Victimhood By Chris Knight
One of the most disgusting, indeed shameful things to be spewed from the university system in the West is a culture of victimhood, which is a by-product of political correctness. People lose their identity as individuals and pursue resources through claiming minority status. Often this means lying about ethno-racial origins, and sometimes these rotters come unstuck. Anyway, there is a new book all about this.
“Two sociology professors from across the country teamed up last year to publish a book on “victimhood culture.” The book, entitled The Rise of Victimhood Culture, was published in 2018 by Professor Bradley Campbell of Cal State Los Angeles and Professor Jason Manning of West Virginia University. The book addresses the “victimhood culture” trend that is especially popular on college campuses. Young Americans now proudly exploit their minority statuses for personal gain. Those who support this new cultural development believe that there is something noble about belonging to a minority group. As a result, some young people use their minority status to destroy others for minor and even accidental slights. The book was highlighted by a recent report by The College Fix. The two professors argue that “victimhood culture” is the new source of cultural pride for American youth. In previous eras, pride was derived from one’s financial status, honor, or dignity.”
The sociologists argue that the world outside of the university campus is beginning to conform to this culture of victimisation as well. I have not yet read the book (there are so many books to read, and money is short even for food, alcohol etc.), But it is clear that this fantasy cannot be sustained. Society’s resources will melt down from the parasitic feeding that is to take place. Then, as the new warlords come to rule, the would-be victims will really get a taste of what being a “victim” really means.
