A Connecticut-based marketing company has created a "snowflake" test; a survey for applicants asking a number of questions about themselves, to weed out entitled liberal Millennials.
Kyle Reyes, CEO of Silent Partner Marketing, said the test was developed to vet potential employees for compatibility with the companies culture and mission statement.
Of course, this is completely in line with the concept of common sense. A gun manufacturer is not going to want to hire someone who hates guns because their heart wouldn't be into creating the best firearms possible. Conversely, one wouldn't want to hire a skinhead to work at an Anti-Antisemitism hotline.
While both those scenarios make sense, I will bet you dollars to donuts that someone somewhere is crafting a lawsuit because some indignant "snowflake" will demand to be included in the next Navy SEAL class. My wager is bolstered by the fact that we live in a litigious era where a quadriplegic would be able to find a lawyer who would file a lawsuit against an NBA team for discriminatory hiring practices against his/her client.
Yes, my friends, that is the era in which we live. We exist in the time of the absurd, and that absurdity is - increasingly - coming under the protection of laws crafted by the ideologically inane.
