"Something has been going wrong on many college campuses in the last few years. Speakers are shouted down. Students and professors say they are walking on eggshells and are afraid to speak honestly. Rates of anxiety, depression, and suicide are rising--on campus as well as nationally. How did this happen? First Amendment expert Greg Lukianoff and social psychologist Jonathan Haidt show how the new problems on campus have their origins in three terrible ideas that have become increasingly woven into American childhood and education: What doesn't kill you makes you weaker; Always trust your feelings; and Life is a battle between good people and evil people. These three Great Untruths contradict basic psychological principles about well-being and ancient wisdom from many cultures. Embracing these untruths -- and the resulting culture of safetyism -- interferes with young people's social, emotional, and intellectual development. It makes it harder for them to become autonomous adults who are able to navigate the bumpy road of life. Lukianoff and Haidt investigate the many social trends that have intersected to promote the spread of these untruths.

It's a decently insightful book that explores into the ways in which contemporary society is impeding the growth and development of the youth.

Haidt argues that the culture of "safety-ism" on college campuses and in other areas of life is creating a generation of individuals who are not ready to face the challenges of the real world. The book goes through the adverse effects of microaggressions, trigger warnings, and other forms of overprotection end up in creating a fragile individual who cannot come to terms with reality.

There are issues with certain examples that are sighted, as I think he mostly goes after the left mostly – Haidt does lampoon the extreme right wingers too but just as an afterthought.

Also, there are certain passages which come across like a commercial for CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Technique) a short-term psychotherapy program unlike psycho analysis.

While I agree with the premise of the authors however, I don’t agree the “Kids are anti-fragile by nature” mantra; Overall it’s an ok read, probably was expecting it to be more detailed and insightful considering I have read Jonathan’s views in journals.

A safe book with good arguments

The main arguments definitely provide some clarity and understanding of the PC/virtue signaling/SJW culture that is being embodied by the left especially on many college campuses. The authors do a good job of diving deep into specific instances to show motivations and another side of the story. Unfortunately, this is bogged down by their one sided political view of events in the US. They seem to be quite sympathetic to those actually promoting and causing violence and spend a lot of time explaining their actions, sometimes seeming to blame the victims but put no effort into doing the same for the other side. They conveniently leave specific facts out or unaddressed (Trump, Charlottesville) and include incorrect facts as supporting arguments (McCarthyism). However, this all aligns with the common narrative and does not seem to detract from the primary arguments of the book. That is what makes this book safe, in the sense that the authors use the word throughout. It goes right along with most of the current beliefs of the people they are discussing many of which are very divisive while suggesting that people stop being so divisive. ( )

The point is a fair one and well articulated: that in general universities as apex of societal knowledge should remain open to healthy discourse across many views.

The problem is that the solutions are naive and do not take into account what we might mean by “healthy discourse”.

While the examples drawn appear to be mainly academically sound poiints to the author, at least in some cases I would find the ideas hogwash that only exists because of fetishistic interest in controversy.

For example; as I see the IQ test, and discussion: not only is the test useless, its goal a sort of post-colonial vision, its analisys by Murray statistically flawed.. any university that admits discussion about garbage should not be surprised to get garbage thrown at it. I do not think you can reason around certain levela of idiocy, and so am not surprised idiots attract attract idiots.

Could it also be that the expectations and level of academics is not as high as Universities pursue funding relentlessly.

Nevertheless a good book to read, and very difficult to write, so I appreciate the author’s effort.

The themes of this book — including the effects of safetyism, tribal conflict, the distortions of emotions — all ring true to me.

I have seen close friends “cancelled,” I myself heavily censor my opinions online and in public for fear of being outed or my business crushed by reflexive or reactionary forces in the public realm. ( )

Prepare the child for the road, not the road for the child.

Your worst enemy cannot harm you as much as your own thoughts, unguarded. But once mastered, no one can help you as much, not even your father or your mother.

The line dividing good and evil cuts through the heart of every human being.

. . . a Great Untruth, which we laid out in the introductory chapter: it contradicts ancient wisdom, it contradicts modern psychological research on flourishing, and it harms the individuals and communities that embrace it.
