"There is no right answer?" A noble and true sentiment at times, but perhaps not the most appropriate thing to tell a young college freshman
heady from his or her first draught from the well of subjectivity.
Students are, essentially, a heartless wolf pack
and will close in on any hint of subjectivity
, like it was an old or sick animal, to cull it from the herd of objectivity
. Drunk with pseudo-intellectual
concepts and their own youthful arrogance
, they will use this point to argue just about anything if it squeezes a few more grade points from a beleaguered professor
This is my only weapon, but it is a powerful one. What I say is this:
"There is no right answer; however, there are wrong answers
That seems to do the trick.
