"Diversity" really means uniformity, and more

  • Ex-Army: We have a diverse planet, with different kinds of people in different places, and that produces many different wonderful things because of the infinite variety of human insights and abilities. To the left, though, that kind of diversity really stinks, and their kind of diversity would slop everybody around all over the world, encouraging all kinds of multiculturalism and interbreeding, the idea being to end up with a bland, beige human race where there's no significant difference between one person and another, one nation or another, one family or another. In short, the leftist "diversity" ethic is actually a uniformity ethic. Got that? As is the case in so many other areas, the left is working towards the opposite of what it publicly advocates. Another example is "safety." The left says it will make you safer by disarming you. That is, when criminals are assured that regular people have no weapons in their homes, home burglaries and invasions will of course increase like crazy, so the criminals will feel safer. So when the left says they want to make you safe, again it's the opposite — they want to make the criminals safe and therefore put you at much greater risk. You can go on and on with this 'opposites' theme. They want to make you more prosperous by raising your taxes. Prevent war by threatening Russia. Improve education by forcing incompatible groups to go to school together. And that brings us back to diversity. The white liberals, Christian heretics, believe they're the true church and that everybody wants to be like them, or should want that.
  • England: Mainline me-too marketing destined to fail. Such doesn't convert the New Agers (and really how many New Agers are there?) and drives off the Christians you do have.
  • A leftist's case against Facebook. I use it; I have no need for Twitter. The Internet can be a lifeline (and it's the greatest library ever: teach yourself the humanities for the cost of a connection) but it can also be a dangerous second-rate substitute for real community.
