Statement Goal: "Because we need more inept, retarded, clueless, semi-illiterate, but aggressive and violent people in positions of authority and influence".

They are already destroyed. At least 10 years now

Here's a feel good story I pulled from Prof. Haidt's feed.
A new mob at Sarah Lawrence College: Hope for Gen Z?
The course, which is open to the entire school with no pre-requisites, is designed to tackle big questions about the sociopolitical state of the nation, and ask how various narratives will play out in the upcoming election cycle. The readings are deliberately designed to bring in contrasting ideas and world views from a range of scholars and commentators, from J.D. Vance and Sarah Smarsh to Charles Murray and Arlie Russell Hochschild, as well as Tim Carney, Thomas Frank, Jose Antonio Vargas and Thomas Chatterton Williams.

In each information session, the room was mobbed. Students filled the chairs. They sat on the floor five rows deep. They spilled out into the hallway. This happened in each session for two full days.

The students weren’t worried about last year’s progressive horde, or how they would be viewed for taking a class with me. In fact, many students directly addressed the question of viewpoint diversity head-on in emails and statements to me, such as: ‘I want this class because I don’t want to be told what and how to think’, and ‘I know there is more to the story, I want to see both sides of the political world.’

If government stops handing free money to “diversity”, universities will stop trying so hard to suck in that money.

That would definitely help. All those organizations based on resentment (racial, gender, weird sexual preferences) need to stoke the perception of all those problems to keep the funding going. If the funding gets slowed down, then exaggerations and lies should slow down as well. Takes staff and budgets to keep crying wolf all the time you know.
