Not related to Norway, though they still do have considerable snow up there.
There is much discussion of young people who are "snowflakes," who believe they are quite special. It's a big issue on conservative sites and bigger still at civil libertarian sites, but it's certainly not confined to those. It irritates adults in general. When the data comes out from one college or another that the protestors are actually children of privilege compared to other students, it just frosts people even more.
I don't know why seeing that information didn't trigger some thinking about my own experience at college and other large collections of young people. This is exactly what a subset of rich kids have always done. They want what they want. They are outraged over small slights. They threaten to go to the dean, or their parents, or a lawyer if they don't get what they want. Giving into them also isn't new. It is stock comedy of cowardly camp directors or craven college presidents who give the little darlings everything they want and ask that the children put in a good word to their father. It is also a stock feature of more serious plays and films, of people who cannot get justice against an offending young criminal because his father is a powerful figure, or crusading young lawyers or journalists who will stand up to the powerful.
Maybe there are more of them now, because there are more rich people. Or because they are a larger group, they encourage each other in this pathology and it increases thereby. Perhaps too many institutions in society encourage this behavior now rather than trying to knock it out of the little monsters. Yet I am not sure of any of those explanations. We don't have much in the way of measuring whether there were more jerks in the old days or more jerks now, and even our measurement of the responses of the supposed adults is indirect. We say "no one would have put up with this in my day," but I can remember specific instances where people did put up with it. We can measure that there are now more administrators at colleges whose jobs are specifically tied to the monitoring of who is offended. I suppose that's an indicator. However, most of what we are quite sure of here may just be our impression.
