With Much Talk Of "Hammers"
"'Ultimately,' said Kathie Olsen, deputy director of the National Science Foundation, 'our goal is to transform, institution by institution, the entire culture of science and engineering in America, and to be inclusive of all—for the good of all.'"Disaster looms. "Radical transformations", many of the usual suspects, math geeks begging for girls, toy trains sleeping in baby carriages, and Soviet-styled "theater". You know: the same ol' drama. Sample:
"Valian is intent on radically transforming society to achieve her egalitarian ideals. She also wants to alter the behavior of successful scientists. Their obsessive work habits, single-minded dedication, and 'intense desire for achievement,' not only marginalize women, but also may compromise good science. She writes, 'If we continue to emphasize and reward always being on the job, we will never find out whether leading a balanced life leads to equally good or better scientific work.'"I have a question:
How many angles can dance in a pin-head's head? This idiot is complaining because some people work hard, and she can't have that.
Look out: there are more darkenings coming.
