    Watched the following interview conducted by Dan Senor. It discusses a number of influences (including the insulating effects social media) in certain programs (mostly in the liberal arts) at prominent universities that have made the discussion of diverse views unacceptably PC. They discuss that much of this helped fuel Trump's campaign rhetoric. Ironically, these liberals did not discuss that there is also the opposite effect on the right, just not at such universities. Perfect environment for apocalyptic transformations.
