Here for the inevitable squabbling when someone inevitably falls into the carefully laid effect/affect bear trap...

i mean "the problem" seems to simply be:

individual selfishness + lies + no fooks to give about anyone else but yourself  = no real hope for the future
at least not for the culture that promotes individual selfishness over group sustainability.

Net effect will be to keep otherwise useless professors employed for another decade or so, so it helps society by keeping them off unemployment at least.

Man is like the hornet, it attacks any perceived threat without thought it reason.  The majority knows racism of any sort of bad, sexism of any sort is bad, discrimination of any sort is bad.  But any attempt to change what is wrong is delivered like a personal attack against what is opposite of what is being changed so people become defensive and resist without reason.  If they want to spend money on something, try to come up with a way to effect change that does not sound like a personal attack without having to take as long as evolution to come about.  They might learn from the porn industry, black on white porn used to be taboo, something kinky white people watched in shame and even though for some reason it is classified still as taboo on some sites, it is much watched and not publicly shamed.  When an actress makes her first BBC video (not to do with Great Britain at all), no one shuns her and says well, she's ruined.  They shrug and just watch her facial expressions to see if she is faking the size hurting or whatever.  It is accepted. There is more acceptance in something we should probably feel ashamed watching than what we share in public life that we know should be accepted fully.  So can I get everyone to put their hand in the middle and give me a "Whoaaaaaa Porn!"

You meant to say individual rights over groupthink.
