STudents for Common Sense
Social Psychologist Jonathan Haidt and New York Times reporter Frank Bruni outline the problem on many college campuses. There is a lack of intellectual diversity that is fueled by a social justice orthodoxy that has become a social contagion.
Aristotelian Common sense is a basic ability to perceive, understand, and judge things, which is shared by ("common to") nearly all people, and can be reasonably expected of nearly all people without any need for debate. Political correctness is defined as the widespread denial of (common sense) reality in order to advance a political objective.
This is a group for free thinking students who wish to do battle with political correctness. Students for common sense are courageous truth seekers. We strive to point out where conventional wisdom is wrong in order to make room for common sense. We take issue with divisive victim posturing that leads to polarization. We promote resilience over entitlement. Our goal is to rebuild a more authentic, neighborly, and virtuous American Community.
