Jonathan Haidt explains why everything is crazy now...

Ok, not exactly, but kind of.

Haidt is a Social Psychologist and he is discussing some of the same trends that have alarmed conservative commentators, though Haidt himself comes from the Left.

I've featured him in another recent post, and he is the co-author of The Coddling of the American Mind: How Good Intentions and Bad Ideas are setting up a Generation for Failure.

While I certainly have some political and philosophical disagreements with Dr. Haidt, I've added him to my list of "YouTube Intellectuals" that I'm following, and I think the over-arching point that he makes in this video is critically important.
