Stop Creating Campus Bubbles

November 30, 2016

Saturday Night Live’s recent sketch, The Bubble, offered hope for Americans depressed about the election—“What if there was a place where the unthinkable didn’t happen and life could continue for progressive Americans just as before?,” SNL asked in the fictitious advertisement for a “planned community of like-minded free-thinkers and no one else” opening in January 2017.

SNL deserves credit for poking a little fun at its loyal fan-base, which includes many would-be residents of “The Bubble.” Some Americans don’t have to wait to live in bubbles. They are already living on college campuses.
