I am toying with a theory I’d like your feedback on.
The world is ever increasingly run on math and science. So, people who can master math and science have an ever-increasing amount of power and influence. Conversely, people who can’t do math or science are losing power and influence and have now gotten to the point that they feel subjugated to the math and science “masters”.
For several years, we’ve seen efforts to re-balance the power by getting more races and women into math and science. The whole idea of promoting STEM to girls and minorities is about that. But the efforts never really worked as well as hoped. Thus, we have developments like the Damore blow up at Google.
So now, instead of revering math and science as knowledge necessary to understand and operate in a complex world, we are seeing a movement to change the world into one where math and science aren’t in charge. So it’s like saying “We are giving up on ever being able to understand those things, ...

So I guess this is my "Hello!" to you all. I'm just happy to be here.
