Publisher's Summary

What has happened to the American spirit? We've gone from "Give me liberty, or give me death!" to "Take care of me, please." Our colleges were once bastions of free speech; now they're bastions of speech codes. Our culture once rewarded independence; now it rewards victimhood. Parents once taught their kids how to fend for themselves; now, any parent who tries may get a visit from the police.
In Not a Day Care, Dr. Everett Piper, president of Oklahoma Wesleyan University and author of the viral essay, "This Is Not a Day Care. It's a University!" takes a hard look at what's happening around the country - including the demand for "safe spaces" and trigger warnings at universities like Yale, Brandeis, and Oberlin - and digs in his heels against the sad and dangerous infantilization of the American spirit.

The book comes from a fair Christian perspective

I am not a Christian, but I agree with the main thrust of this book. It is well worth the listen. I believe the author wishes to be fair with everyone and would not discriminate against someone with a different religion. he is mostly discussing the illogical of the new anti free speech movement, AKA label it "hate speech" then shut it down argument. He is promoting honest debate with courtesy for others.

I did not like the narrator's style or tone, but the subject is so important and the analysis so good I can overlook that.
Although I have been critical of some things the main message gets my positive approval. I recommend this book highly.
