Nature smiles at the union of freedom and equality in our utopias. For freedom and equality are sworn and everlasting enemies, and when one prevails the other dies.If Nature smiles at the union of freedom and equality in our utopias, She bursts into laughter at the union of freedom, equality, and diversity in our utopias. When one prevails, the other two die.
Liberty, equality, or diversity--choose one. Just one.
Even the most nightmarish Orwellian IngSoc state, with zero liberty, will fail to make diversity and equality compatible. Asian men and black women will still have relatively lower SMVs than others, black infants will still die at higher rates than non-black infants, etc.
That the Cathedral favors diversity over the other two is the Occident's great tragedy. There is plenty of room for moral, empirical, pragmatic, and dialectical arguments and correspondingly differing positions on relative preferences for equality and for liberty in a healthy society.
Diversity destroys all of this. It leaves us enfeebled, untrusting, and holed up inside our own little cocoons. As Greg Johnson puts it:
Nobody feels at home in multicultural and multiracial societies.
