The Null Device

An opinion piece from the Wall Street Journal argues that high-school cliques are good, that the parents of Alpha kids (cheerleaders, jocks, abercroms and such) should not feel stigmatised, because most of the anti-clique arguments come from former nerds and outcasts still bitter about being ostracised in high school. (One could probably argue that the clique system, with its subtexts of intense competition and conformity, is very useful for preparing children for taking their places in the consumer-capitalist world once they grow up.)
