JOHNSTONE COUNTRY. WHERE OTHERS FEAR TO TREAD. From the bestselling authors of The Doomsday Bunker, Black Friday, and Stand Your Ground comes the explosive story of a college under siege—and freedom under fire . . . POLITICAL CORRECTNESS WON’T SAVE YOU Former Army Ranger Jake Rivers is not your typical Kelton College student. He is not spoiled, coddled, or ultra-lib like his classmates who sneer at the “soldier boy.” Rivers is not “triggered” by “microaggressions.” He is not outraged by “male privilege” and “cisgender bathrooms.” He does not need a “safe space.” Or coloring books. Jake needs an education. And when terror strikes, the school needs Jake . . . Without warning, the sounds of gunfire plunge the campus into a battle zone. A violent gang of marauders invade the main hall, taking students as hostages for big ransom money. As a veteran and patriot, Jake won’t give in to their demands. But to fight back, he needs to enlist his fellow classmates to school these special snowflakes in the not-so-liberal art of war. This time, the aggression isn’t “micro.” It’s life or death. And only the strong survive . . . Live Free. Read Hard.

To generate opportunities for transformative learning, educators must create learning environments that help students feel safe and encourage them to grapple with potentially difficult material. The trigger warning, a brief statement information students of potential distressing or re-traumatizing content, has been offered as a way to do just that, but this practice is neither as effective nor as equitable as it may seem. Intentionally or indirectly, the trigger warning limits the extent to which students are encouraged to engage in transformative critical conversations and reinforces the culture of silence that prevails in many educational spaces. Emerging as a response to trauma amid an educational environment that professes student-responsiveness and celebrates diversity yet perpetuates the marginalization of many of the bodies in the classroom, the trigger warning is not the problem – but it is not the solution either. What does this mean for the faculty members teaching this new generation of college students? And the teachers who find this generation’s younger siblings in their high school classrooms? Drawing upon original research, Mara Lee Grayson tracks the rise of the trigger warning within historical and contemporary educational contexts; explores its potentialities, limitations, and abuses as praxis; and offers curricular suggestions for high school and college instructors seeking to implement equitable, antiracist pedagogies that simultaneously encourage students’ well-being, provoke intellectual and emotional growth, and challenge the cultures of silence that maintain inequity on school campuses.

The man lives, quite literally, in a building serviced by a golden elevator. Somehow, he presented himself as the scourge of the elites. For decades, he built a persona based on the most conspicuous consumption and the crassest of excess--and then he won the presidency on an anti-establishment ticket. The unlikely rise of Donald J. Trump exemplifies the political paradox of the twenty-first century. In this new Gilded Age, the contrast between the haves and the have-nots could not be starker. The world's eight richest billionaires control as much wealth as the poorest half of the planet--a disparity of wealth and political power unknown in any previous period. Yet not only have progressives failed to make gains in circumstances that should, on paper, favor egalitarianism and social justice, the angry populism that's prospered explicitly targets ideas associated with the left--and none more so than so-called 'political correctness'. If Trump--and others like Trump--can turn hostility to PC into a winning slogan, how should the left respond? In the face of a vicious new bigotry, should progressives double-down on identity politics and gender theory? Must they abandon political correctness and everything associated with it to reconnect with a working class they've alienated? Or is there, perhaps, another way entirely? In Trigger Warnings, Jeff Sparrow excavates the development of a powerful new vocabulary against progressive causes. From the Days of Rage to Gamergate, from the New Left to the alt-right, he traces changing attitudes to democracy and trauma, symbolism and liberation, in an exhilarating history of ideas and movements. Challenging progressive and conservative orthodoxies alike, Trigger Warnings is a bracing polemic and a persuasive case for a new kind of politics.

This incendiary new non-fiction collection by World Horror Grandmaster Award winning author Brian Keene walks the line between profound and profane, poking and prodding everything from pop culture to politics. Whether it's the downfall of America's oldest mass-market publisher, the Second Amendment, advice on writing, marriage equality, crazed Internet trolls, writer's organizations, the death of the Borders retail chain, misogyny in comic books, the history of the horror genre, or the apathy of a fading political system, Brian Keene shares his thoughts in that blunt, sardonic style readers have come to love. TRIGGER WARNINGS includes acclaimed essays, speeches, and articles such as "Roots", "Seminal Screams", "The Dorchester Wars", "More Than Man's Best Friend", "Cold Warriors", "How to Write 80,000 Words in a Weekend", "Children Playing with Guns", "On Rape and Repugnance", and many more.

Trigger warnings-notices about potentially sensitive material that might activate strong emotional or physical responses-have received polarized attention for their presence on college campuses. Some scholars argue that trigger warnings are "coddling the American mind"; whereas others argue that such warnings are essential to student success. Despite media attention, there is little empirical work on trigger warnings in the college classroom. Past research has conflicting results on the effectiveness of trigger warnings and none of these studies have fully investigated the mechanisms by which trigger warnings work. In order to address how trigger warnings function in classrooms, I conducted two studies. Study 1 was designed to collect descriptive data on students' experiences with and understanding of trigger warnings and to collect pilot data on students' mindsets about stress and appraisals of course material. Students were moderately familiar with trigger warnings and saw trigger warnings as facilitating classroom engagement. Students, on average, saw stress as debilitating and their course material as a challenge. Study 2 tested, experimentally, whether and how trigger warnings had positive or negative effects on knowledge retention and affect. Study 2 also investigated the role of stress mindset (manipulated experimentally). Overall, Study 2 tested a theoretical model, whereby appraisals explain the effect of trigger warnings on knowledge retention and affect and stress mindset moderates this effect. Receiving a trigger warning (vs. not) before viewing a video did not influence outcomes (i.e., knowledge retention and positive or negative affect). Moreover, there was no evidence to support the proposed model: appraisals did not mediate the effect of trigger warnings on outcomes and a stress mindset intervention did not moderate this (lack of) effect. Overall, these studies suggested that whereas students generally understand the purpose behind the use of trigger warnings in college classrooms (Study 1), trigger warnings-at least in the context of this experiment-had little effect on student outcomes (Study 2). Future studies should continue to investigate the influence of how course material is framed as well as mechanisms through which trigger warnings impact student outcomes.

This paper considers the constitutional questions posed by trigger warnings in higher education. Specifically, I look at the relationship between trigger warnings and First Amendment rights. I show that trigger warnings, a hot button issue in academia and the cultural discourse today, are neither exempt from constitutional concerns nor do they automatically violate First Amendment rights. The Court often interprets the First Amendment's central goal as promoting the pursuit of truth through the uninhibited free flow of ideas. The Court defines institutes of higher education as crucial spaces to forward this pursuit. Do trigger warnings aide or hinder the pursuit of truth in the college classroom? I explore two legal frameworks to consider this question. The first considers trigger warnings as a prior restraint on a professor's academic freedom, which is protected under the First Amendment. The second considers trigger warnings as a constitutionally permissible form of accommodation for women in higher education. This paper concludes with suggestions of how trigger warnings can be effectively and legally used in higher education. Trigger warnings can risk infringing on a professor's First Amendment rights; trigger warnings can also be benign and, sometimes, considerate teaching tools. A balance is possible between the two.

Despite the name, trigger warnings have nothing to do with gun control, and safe spaces don't necessarily mean state-of-the-art panic rooms. Instead, these terms and the phrase "microaggressions" relate to preserving and protecting one's emotional safety. In this volume, readers will learn about the increased demand for sensitivity in social settings, in literature and media, and on the Internet. They will also encounter the opposing view, that we, as a society, are becoming too fragile and don't need figurative bulletproof vests for every occasion.

Against Empathy

New York Post Best Book of 2016 We often think of our capacity to experience the suffering of others as the ultimate source of goodness. Many of our wisest policy-makers, activists, scientists, and philosophers agree that the only problem with empathy is that we don’t have enough of it. Nothing could be farther from the truth, argues Yale researcher Paul Bloom. In AGAINST EMPATHY, Bloom reveals empathy to be one of the leading motivators of inequality and immorality in society. Far from helping us to improve the lives of others, empathy is a capricious and irrational emotion that appeals to our narrow prejudices. It muddles our judgment and, ironically, often leads to cruelty. We are at our best when we are smart enough not to rely on it, but to draw instead upon a more distanced compassion. Basing his argument on groundbreaking scientific findings, Bloom makes the case that some of the worst decisions made by individuals and nations—who to give money to, when to go to war, how to respond to climate change, and who to imprison—are too often motivated by honest, yet misplaced, emotions. With precision and wit, he demonstrates how empathy distorts our judgment in every aspect of our lives, from philanthropy and charity to the justice system; from medical care and education to parenting and marriage. Without empathy, Bloom insists, our decisions would be clearer, fairer, and—yes—ultimately more moral. Brilliantly argued, urgent and humane, AGAINST EMPATHY shows us that, when it comes to both major policy decisions and the choices we make in our everyday lives, limiting our impulse toward empathy is often the most compassionate choice we can make.
