Modern Trophyism

Modern Trophyism – the perceived need for physical representations of worth or status – within America is a virulent weed that has born foul fruit, as the Liberals’ and Progressives’ response to Mr. Trump being triumphant in the 2016 elections.

True, the need or obsessive desire for trophies or any material representation of others’ validation of one’s worth is and always been a bad thing. Sadly however, the intersection of trophyism with the Liberals’ and Progressives’ obsession with equality of results and ensuring that everyone “succeeds” in anything they do irrespective of their merit in that endeavor has resulted in a pernicious, synergistic cycle of personal and social degeneration.

The Millennials’ ongoing, disruptive protests; their riots; their cry-ins; their need for specialized counseling; and their desire for special dispensation from their duties as students or, in all too rare cases, workers in the wake of Mr. Trump defeating Hillary Clinton in the 2016 elections is persuasive evidence of this pathology.
