Much has been made (for example: here, here, and here) about Roger Cohen’s recent NYT piece, The Great Unraveling. One senses that Mr. Cohen is beginning to engage in crimethink. If this continues, he will undoubtedly be approached by O’Brien and, soon thereafter, find himself in Room 101.

UPDATE—Danette Clark has this post up about a website promoting the “culturally responsive” teaching of math, whose advocates believe that

the idea that math is neutral, rational, and logical is a myth and the premise that 2 + 2 = 4 is “naive.”

We’ve heard that before.

“Two and two are four.”

“Sometimes, Winston. Sometimes they are five. Sometimes they are three. Sometimes they are all of them at once. You must try harder. It is not easy to become sane.”

    Really? Backlash is a myth.

    And then he quotes Kipling:

    “The Dog returns to his Vomit and the Sow returns to her Mire / And the burnt Fool’s bandaged finger goes wabbling back to the Fire.”

    No one read it, he says. Well, except Glenn Beck. And they called him crazy for having read it.

  2. Silly leftists 2+2= the violence inherent in the system. And speak not of the horrors represented by the number 42
