Since coming to university, I have noticed that most of the events, programs or speakers that come here are here to promote the “diversity” agenda. Don’t get me wrong, diversity is great!
I, however, do not appreciate constant “cultural diversity” requirements or qualifications for classes or clubs. Cultural diversity, in my opinion, is just as, if not less, important as diversity of thought.
If, for example, someone is on the left and believes X and Y, while someone is on the right and believes Z, then would the “diversity” requirement suit someone who already believes in X and Y? Or would that just be pushing an agenda and covering it with the “diversity” cloak?
If someone on the left truly wants to promote diversity, then they should be going to speakers or events that are based around rightist ideas and beliefs. For example, why don’t they attend an event about why the Second Amendment should be protected instead of something they already agree with?
This is an interesting topic, as I have started working to uncover the origins and roots of it. The roots, in my belief, start with stacking a university administration with far left ideologies and then brainwashing young people to think they are contributing to diversity, when in reality they are merely playing into the left’s plan to convert everyone into liberal fascists.
That was a big jump, right? Well, it is not really far off.
If we look at Margaret Sanger, the mastermind for planned parenthood, we would see that she hired black priests, or community members, and got them to convince others that abortion and birth control are what is best for their community. This was of course wrong as she really just wanted to control the population of black Americans and maintain a “pure” society.
Universities across the country are starting to adopt this method of brainwashing and coercion. They are enlisting student organizations and insisting that X and Y are the right policies to follow.
The student organizations are the blindly following instead of thinking about Z. Those of us who do think about Z see that this method of making sheep is working.
Diversity of thought is one of the ways that we can ensure that everyone is not only accurately represented, but that they are also heard. Cultural diversity ensures that those in the culture are heard, or rather the general population of the culture, where diversity of thought ensures that everyone, including the non-general population, is heard.
It is important to note that the support of a few leaders of a group should not suggest that everyone in that group agrees with the ideas presented. That is where cultural diversity is failing.
The women’s march, for example, was a small portion of women who happened to agree on a few issues. This failed to represent the ideas of women who voted for Trump, who are pro-life, who carry guns, want an immigration halt and generally disagree with the social justice ideology.
I think it is high time that we start promoting the individual belief over the generalized ideas of the specific group. Diversity of thought is the only way this can happen and this is the only method that can actually yield results.
People on the left always want us to stop generalizing, so I suggest we tell them to stop generalizing and assuming everyone thinks the same way because guess what? No one does.
