The inscrutable logic of liberals’ diversity fixation Reply


By Tom Quiner

Liberals have talked themselves into believing two contradictory things, as evolutionary psychologist Geoffrey Miller points out in today’s Wall Street Journal:

  1. Men and women and all races think alike. They possess the exact same traits, proclivities, and yearnings. In other words, there is true no diversity since we’re all alike.
  2. Companies must promote diversity to be competitive, because we’re all so fundamentally different. “Any lack of demographic diversity must be due to short-sighted management that favors groupthink.”

These two tenets of American liberalism are at odds with each other, which explains the revulsion so many on the political right hold for the Democratic Party. Their foundation rests on feelings and rage, not rational thought.
