I’m gobsmacked on a day-to-day basis by how completely the country has devoted itself to the cause of “diversity.” As though it’s automatically and everywhere a Good Thing, if not the one and only Magic Cure to Everything That Ails Us. Apply a big helping of “diversity” to no matter what the challenge and/or situation, and instantly life is better for everyone, right?
Is diversity fanaticism — the conviction that diversity is everywhere and always the ultimate good — the prime, and maybe even defining, delusion of our era? Got any other contenders?
(Just to be clear: I’m hoping we can all agree that there’s a diff between “enjoying and appreciating different kinds of people, and doing a reasonable job of behaving decently and fairly” — I’m all for that — and what I’m calling “diversity fanaticism.”)
