We used to be awash in moral relativism. Now we are awash in moral judgmentalism.

An interesting article, and idea.

Seems that Sooner attempts to be a shame culture.

Interesting, indeed, and I'd have to agree. It almost seems like a "well, duh!" moment, one of those things that were right in front of you but you fail to see.

I read the book mentioned early in the article, “The Closing of the American Mind.” Bloom got a lot of flack from the educational elites for his thesis.

Interesting times we live in. In the rush to make a non-judgmental culture, we've created a hyper-judgmental one.
