‘Diversity, equity and inclusion’, end this tragedy.

Finally, the academic world is waking up to the nightmare that reality has become. Words used against the “oppressed” constitute violence. The use of violence against “oppressors” is a form of discourse, free expression of resistance.

Murdered Jews, raped women, kidnapped children, humiliated elders are “oppressors”, and they are responsible for the tragedy that befell them. Murderers, rapists, kidnappers, insolent and arrogant, violent, and barbaric criminals are the “oppressed” and their crimes are resistance.

That is the moral perspective of students at the top American universities. They are being educated, indoctrinated, and persuaded that the world is divided into “oppressors” and “oppressed”, and that what distinguishes one from the other is directly linked to Identitarianism, the 2.0 version of collectivism based on Marxist ideas, adapted by postmodern philosophers, political scientists, psychologists, and sociologists, those who pervert language and have created the insane “political correctness” doctrine.

The problem, as well-written by Andrew Sullivan and Jonathan Haidt, and as I have previously stated, is that dismissing university executives is neither the solution nor a viable option. Yes, having them fired is necessary, but is not sufficient.

The collectivist concept of diversity, equity, and inclusion pervades the university environment, the media, and the cultural environment. There is no longer a human being whose individual rights are equally protected by the Rule of Law objectively applied.

If you are a black person today, you are “oppressed”. If you are a LGBTQ man or woman, you are “oppressed”; if you are a woman, you are “oppressed”, unless you are Jewish, or Arab subject to the Sharia law; if your child is a Palestinian refugee, you are oppressed, as long as the oppressor is Israel and not Hamas terrorists or the governments of Egypt and Jordan.

The accusations of antisemitism appear to have shaken the foundations of these ideological hypocrites, who seek to rule society by dividing it and promoting dissent against one another. There is no doubt that the letters N and J will be added to the acronym LGBTQ+, which stands for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transsexual, Queers, and other newly invented identity categories. N stands for black, and J stands for Jewish. After all, Jews make significant contributions to their “alma maters”, such as Harvard, MIT, Columbia, NYU or UPenn.

By doing so, we would exacerbate the current psycho-epistemological, ethical, political, and social tragedy. A tragedy which has exceeded all acceptable limits for any society whose culture, and thus institutionality, was based on Aristotle, Aquina, Locke, Jefferson, Madison, and Hamilton ideas.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion oppose Individualism, Freedom, and Merit or Justice, pillars of the Enlightened Western civilization. DEI, yet another bad acronym, must be abolished and forgotten as a societal ideal. Human interactions and relationships must be free, voluntary, and spontaneous, and freedom of conscience, expression, and association are rights that include the ability discriminate, to say yes as well as no.

What one must realize is that the smallest minority in any society is not any one of those ABCDEFGHIJKLGBTQ+ groups. The letter I is the acronym for the smallest minority that exists, the Individual.
