William Shatner deals with a lot of stupid on Twitter. It has sort of become his thing, other than being awesome and James T. Kirk. So we’re surprised to see his frustration with ignorant people and his criticism of education as a whole.
I am so tired of presentism & moronic people who continue to place today’s value systems on the past to judge. They cannot comprehend that the fact they have the freedom to judge is because of what brave people did in the past. Education needs a wake up call.

Yes, yes it does.
In more ways than one.
It's been said that Leftists are moral absolutists across time and moral relativists across space.

Whoa, nice Star Trek reference.
I love the term *presentism* to define a movement that seeks to ignore or cancel all accomplishments of the previous generations.
It probably also represents a related belief that everyone owes you a present ? just for being alive today.

Presentism really is a good word.
And he’s right, pushing today’s value-systems on the past, judging movies, books, people … and for what? To bang their chests and demand apologies to pretend they’re more important than they are?
Agree, most of the politics, systems and prejudices are bases on old events, The ability of a country to evolve, solve and progress should be the main focus all the time

Kirk really is THE captain.
Sorry, not sorry.
I agree it is crazy. Now Warner Brother's has put disclaimers on some of their older films.

Agreed. Education needs to start actually educating again Sir.

Wouldn’t that be nice?
Shatner Twitter rules.
