DEI pedagogy is like a gas that penetrates all space, seeping into every nook and cranny of the new MIT. A recently released role-playing game called “On the Plane” puts the virtue in virtual reality, teaching players correct attitudes and microaggression-free small talk that respects the religion of peace.
Unlike the real world, this virtual airplane will never fly you to your rendezvous with 72 virgins at the World Trade Center, accompanied by soothing chants of Allahu Akbar. Have no fear of getting pitched off the roof if you’re caught playing hide the salami with the wrong gender. Instead, you can enjoy AI-generated lectures by a righteous cartoon flight attendant when you foolishly insult the hijab-wearing passenger next to you by asking, “So, where are you from?”
Move over Super Mario Brothers! This game is sure to be a bestseller, brought to you by MIT’s Institute for Data, Systems, and Society, an interdisciplinary social science program devoted to getting computer science nerds to worship at the altar of woke consciousness. Best of all, it’s genuine peer reviewed science! Who doesn’t love being bombarded by pious propaganda every waking hour of every day?
