parsons paradox
"The school is losing students (and money?). Still, despite what may seem to be the problem, the lack of wellbeing and togetherness, the New School keeps promoting these exact things; collaboration, interaction and socializing. They know about the problems they are facing and yet they continue to promote something they do not actually have; a community.

...

It is peculiar that I, a Norwegian freshman, appear to be the first one to acknowledge the Paradox’s existence. I am saying ‘acknowledge’ because everyone at the New School seem to know about it. I believe I have pointed at some of the issues towards untangling the Paradox; however, it yet has to be resolved."
