We've let our civilization's perception of risk warp. Let me give you the headline. It's risky out there! That's why PSU's Outing Club can no longer go outside. Our university's main source of entertainment is a sport that gives a large number of the participants brain damage. We maintain a Greek system where the students have been killed indirectly and directly by hazing. But we cann't find a way to maintain the Outing club? fubar. Tufts started doing this years ago.
Learning in life is inherently risky. When my son was trying to crawl up the stairs the first time, it was a risk, abandoning the safe floor on which he crawled to try to be more. When he tried to stand for the first time last year, he was taking a risk. First attempts are often failures, as were others. There were hurts. But we were there, and we made sure those risks weren't quite so bad as they could have been, and that he never tried anything that was truly dangerous. We gave him opportunity to learn from his mistakes.
On the other hand, we have many times witnessed cases where rules intended to protect people actually make things worse, at least for a few. There is a balance between protecting and educating. It can be had to find sometimes. But when balanced against other examples, revoking recognition of our Outing club does seems inequitable and diminishing of the university.
