More inclusive of different viewpoints and perspectives

What Higher Learning or a Higher Level of Learning once was and is always have supposed to be and been about, which is higher state of mind and thinking can only mean a plurality of Perspectives and Viewpoints in order to contribute to one’s way of thinking or how to think it does not mean as its essence diversity of ethnicity or Nationality that is a completely different and separate issue that at certain places and at certain times needs to be addressed . The real problem is the intentional and unintentional conflation of the two.

Becoming less interesting

Quillette used to be quirkier; now it’s more one-note. There’s a lot to make fun of in the woke world, but if that’s all you do, what are you adding to the established upmarket conservative outlets? Feature some writers you disagree with, if only for the sake of “viewpoint diversity “!
