Last year, Bret Easton Ellis published “Generation Wuss” in Vanity Fair. Be forewarned about the language and decadence. I worry that Ellis is largely correct. I am shocked by how psychologically delicate young Americans have become. I blame helicopter parents, electronic device-life, the self esteem cult, and the cowardice of every institution that caves to unreasonable vermin for fear of lawsuits and/or bad p.r. It is a shame, though. I do not know if anything is uglier than an ugly soul—it is such a defacement of what is destined for greatness.
