anyway it’s silly we’re compelled to defend the humanities when there are so many actually unjustifiable things happening in the world. next we’ll be compelled to defend learning to read at all

Have you seen the Covidians? Many of them were arguing (and still are, I presume) that kids didn’t really need to learn to read. If working in the fields, completely illiterate, was good enough for their great-great-grandparents, by gum, it was certainly good enough for little Harper and Kinsley.
I wonder if that Covidian crap will turn into an actual coherent religious movement? Not likely but possible I guess.
