Time for a Great Cartoon: Studying and Victimhood

05 Nov

screen-shot-2016-09-21-at-8-45-22-pm“Self-esteem” is a tricky concept, isn’t it?  For Calvin, it appears to mean thinking highly of himself despite any evidence to the contrary.

His teacher — bless her heart! — is always trying to get Calvin to work harder, to put in the effort, to actually STUDY!

But, alas, all Calvin does is come up with more excuses — well-worded excuses, no doubt — but excuses!  His claim to “victimhood” would be laughable if it were not true for some today.

Blaming others, refusing to accept personal responsibility, expecting the world to cater to your whims — these are subtle (and sometimes not so subtle) signs of a culture which no longer values hard work, genuine humility, or gratitude for those who try to instill such virtues in us.
