After their disruptive essay in “The Atlantic” was released in 2015 on the harm of trigger warnings and microagressions, Greg Lukianoff and co-author Jonathan Haidt followed up by publishing their new book, “The Coddling of the American Mind: How Good intentions and Bad Ideas Are Setting Up a Generation for Failure.” Using scientific research, they support their claims that “trigger warnings” and “microaggressions” are actually causing serious, negative repercussions that harm the students they’re trying to protect. Greg Lukianoff is the President of the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE) and is a fierce advocate of educational freedom.

     What progressives call cultural appropriation is actually imitation.

     If I steal your jacket, I have appropriated it. But if I simply obtain a jacket of the same style, I’m just imitating you. You still have your jacket. 

     The concept of cultural appropriation is intended as an attack on artistic creativity. 

     Cultural appropriation, as well as the concept of microaggression, are attempts by progressives to circumvent the First Amendment.
