Bill Maher: "Trophy Syndrome" Led To Equality Of Outcomes Over Equality Of Opportunity

|

HBO "Real Time" host Bill Maher delivers a monologue on the woke philosophy of "equality of outcomes," and how it plays into an increasingly vapid, entitled, famous-for-nothing culture.


MAHER: If you believe in the philosophy of equality of outcomes then you really shouldn't have watched the GRAMMYs last Sunday. Because the GRAMMYs, besides from the usual award show virtue-signaling, are still largely about the idea that certain people do music better than others, and it's okay to reward them for it. That's called meritocracy and it's the opposite of guaranteed outcomes. Equality of outcomes as opposed to equality of opportunity, we used to call that by another name: trophy syndrome. A world that was created by in the '90s, where everybody, every kid gets a trophy no matter how good or bad they are at something. Well, the result of that kind of thinking is that American kids now have a totally deluded and unearned belief in their charm, brains, and talent.
