Obey our diversity dogma or starve.
In the name of equality, we decided on meritocracy through education, which means testing people on past scenarios and rewarding those who apply the “current” (really: past) procedures the best. Now they have no idea how the other half lives and sign up for poverty simulations so they have something to discuss at luncheon.
Beware of identity politics. I’ll re-phrase that: have nothing to do with identity politics. I remember very well the first time I heard the saying “The Personal Is Political.” It began as a sort of reaction to the defeats and downturns that followed 1968: a consolation prize, as you might say, for people who had missed that year. I knew in my bones that a truly Bad Idea had entered the discourse. Nor was I wrong.
People began to stand up at meetings and orate about how they felt, not about what or how they thought, and about who they were rather than what (if anything) they had done or stood for. It became the replication in even less interesting form of the narcissism of the small difference, because each identity group begat its subgroups and “specificities.” This tendency has often been satirized — the overweight caucus of the Cherokee trans-gender disabled lesbian faction demands a hearing on its needs — but never satirised enough. You have to have seen it really happen.
From a way of being radical it very swiftly became a way of being reactionary; the Clarence Thomas hearings demonstrated this to all but the most dense and boring and selfish, but then, it was the dense and boring and selfish who had always seen identity politics as their big chance.
It turns out that this was prophetic. Identity politics means every group is a special interest working against the mutual interest. Diversity tears societies apart.
On the one hand, they have tried to rally developing countries behind the idea that the “right to subsistence” trumps concerns over other human rights.
Other times, the government has justified its dictatorship as an expression of traditional Chinese “Confucian values”. These emphasise the importance of duty and social harmony over individual rights.
Now, however, the government has formed a coherent ideological strategy in response to this criticism. China is seeking not merely to resist but to dismantle a foundational idea of the post-Cold War international order – the universality of human rights.
China is simply ahead of the curve. Universal human rights means dominance by parasites. Like all egalitarian ideas, it is a death-trap for the unwary, and as democracy fails in a miasma of debt, declining populations, endless wars, rotted cities, transsexual activism, and drug use, we are realizing how serious the “death” part of that statement is.
The law is an ass. Technically, this was unwanted sexual touching, thus sex assault. But no one wants to live in a society where a kiss is a jail sentence. We need a sense of proportion here.
Democracy is fetishistic; it has a paraphilia for egalitarian Utopianism to conceal its contrarian individualism. When a trend starts, it only stops when the horrors are revealed too late to do anything real about them. Just bury the dead and move on.
Another dubious study designed to justify shakedowns, this one most likely confuses epigenetic changes caused by lifestyle with PTSD. Ending diversity — repatriating these people to Mongolia — ends the problem.
Another superstitious study confuses some cases with all cases and uses that to assign cause to what is really a detail.
These rules strike me as ridiculous attempts to try to force diversity to work when it clearly does not. Students should be in uniforms at this point, since most people can barely dress themselves.
We are ruled by a fear of symbols because we fear that the WW2-era order was never good and is failing. We should fear this because it is true.
Coca-Cola’s marketing aims to target all consumers while avoiding the appearance of endorsing or criticizing any particular group, Arroyo said. Internal messaging guidelines clearly delineate which topics Coca-Cola marketing should and shouldn’t touch, he said, though he declined to elaborate on specifics.
“Whatever is your political preference, whatever is your religious preference, whatever is your sexual preference, we welcome absolutely everyone. But a different thing is to make a statement that basically favors one against another. It is not our job to enter that,” he said.
As we said here in the past, under diversity all marketing is niche marketing. The big companies are avoiding this if they can, especially after the Disney and Bud Light debacles.
Diversity divided the USA yet again. Now the post-WW2 order fails, since consumerism has become job-slavery and equality has become education-slavery, with diversity rising to mean constant internal division and rule by special interests. We told you equality was a Big Lie that led to civilization collapse.
They come here for the free stuff. The voters assume someone else will be paying.
Most humans are dysfunctional, so most societies are dysfunctional. The post-colonial order of world liberal democracy (“globalism”) has made this worse. Now they all want to come here because they are dysfunctional, and hope that going to the free stuff will solve all of their problems.
Whether you like slavery or not (I do not) it is high time to realize that the Confederates were right about diversity, as the riots of last summer proved.
We spent ourselves into oblivion on anti-poverty (socialism) and anti-racism (diversity) programs, now have depleted what made us great and fed what makes us weak. As always, “equality” (contrarianism, individualism, narcissism) takes from the strong to give to the weak.
Diversity ended the American consumer miracle and with it, the American Dream.
Science requires taking samples for study. Now we wish to reverse this.
Awkward moment Mads Mikkelsen is stunned to be asked about lack of diversity in the cast for his film set in 1750s Denmark
The Communists want to retcon diversity into history, in contradiction to known fact.
Educators should be asexual and apolitical, yet we have the opposite now.
Diverse areas are less interested in nature.
The Leftist solution is always more free stuff.
Diversity has failed and more people than ever before see it.
Although the Frencha are regicides who should be enslaved for their stupidity, they have tacitly recognized that foreigners in the West are not refugees and can always go back home.
