That story on self-centred kids
Or ‘why so many people in their 20s and 30s aren’t very nice’. Charley Wingate first brought this to my attention. More unintended consequences. The answer of course is not to pull people apart (like army training or some other teaching methods) but the secular ‘self-esteem’ movement obviously is not the way to go either! IIRC C.S. Lewis warned specifically about ‘self-esteem’ using those words in Mere Christianity. Owen the Ochlophobist gets it.
