Fifty years from now a reboant world of digizitation will derivate from the pixilated, as random number generators and programmed AI will determine the incoming class of 2075 embarking on a journey through the higher learning institutions within the California state university system run by the Costco corporation. Among the successful applicants will include a Penguin identifying as a student athlete from the Ozarks, a female who legally claims invisibility and with the distinction, believes she has the right to grope fellow students, and a male student from a quiet neighborhood in Modesto.
The trio and the other 30,000 accepted into the college environment are all aware of the resounding ruling by the Supreme Court in 2023 which effectively eliminated quotas and the detrimental effects of participation trophy culture in incredulously awarding admissions to unqualified applicants. However, the highest court never properly addressed the pronoun frenzy, as a landmark Federal court case in 2031 ruled that (they/them) were legally entitled to rights for each of their personalities, complicating an already exhaustive daily ceremony of acknowledgment and validation hampering the economy and creating nightmares in professional and interpersonal relationships.
Between the Court shattering the impetuous latticework of affirmative action with Wednesday’s game-changing ruling, and the decision later in the week finding Biden’s student loan forgiveness policy unconstitutional, the last year has been a whirlwind of paramount legal cases, including Bruen, which has major ramifications on Second Amendment Rights. Maybe, just maybe, the public education system nightmarish cycle, which prioritizes indoctrination over teaching applicable skills to succeed in life, will be altered to embrace free will and opportunity for all demographics.
Officially barring colleges from making selective admissions standards specific to race is a strong indication that the out of control cascade of political correctness, leading to cultural stagnation and universal detriment to a once robust workforce, may finally be slowing, thanks to sensibly drafted legislation deftly implemented. While radicals argue that the Supreme Court has been transformed into a extremist majority of a panel, ironically the practice of reverse discrimination is still revered by those whose ulterior motive is not diversity or equality, but exercising ultimate control over the population through invoking and embracing measures which are questionable at best, and draconian at worst. As achievement is once again emphasized within the public education system matrix, supporters of the American dream now must prepare for the onslaught of rhetoric and visceral lexicon militarized to discredit any individual or organization supporting accomplishment and admonishing the diversion into the forced labor camp undertones of the subjective, where the best and the brightest are punished simply for appearance.
While universities can now fill spots previously left vacant through counterproductive policy and hold students accountable for fulfilling financial requirements, can the caustic cyclical of procedural insanity truly dissolved in creating a direct pathway to a bountiful future? Currently, high school administrations push unqualified candidates towards higher education to earn federal grants, as the failing economics of bureaucracy lead to unsustainable budgets, glaring issues only exacerbated by the nefarious presence of powerful labor unions. As colleges face a similar problem in attempting to pay lucrative tenures and pensions, an influx of less than competent students flood lecture halls, and institutions are forced to higher more support staff, resulting in logarithmic expenditures. Upon graduation, an increasing rarity, individuals with little or no skills are thrust into the workforce and are not able to find careers that can sustain families. The cycle begins again when the children of the children enter the public school system. Lost in this chaotic shuffle are the in-state high achieving students and certain minorities, who previous to the Supreme Court ruling, were severe casualties of the warped quota policy, and victims of cash strapped organizations run by politics, rather than founded by a functioning business model.
With Moore’s law fast approaching and software able to write itself, over the next quarter of a century competition within an already crowded job market will reach the next level. In this likely scenario it is imperative that the younger demographics earn educations that result in learned skills based on merit to merely survive. There is no room for implied achievement based on appearance and not competence.
