Absent a common ambition any interest can be served; for a time!
The notion of diversity, seemingly hip and peevishly altruistic, is nothing more than functional lethargy overtaking the natural order of form. The charade that is diversity is right up there with the iconic and authoritative defense often raised and known as a Conspiracy Theory.
In truth, if you care to consider the theory, isn’t any/every outcome a conspiracy? The deliberate ambition of those preferring one outcome over that of another’s, have they, forces and interests, not conspired to affect their cause? In either instance the outcome is still the same; the overtaking of the natural order of functional form.
In typical human fashion the only reason objections are levied, as absolutes occur, is simply as an exhibition of our desire to not be defined or constrained by them. Or, far worse, is that to hold another accountable risks our having to be equally accountable and so, if we decide to be free of accountability, then by what reason do we expect the environment to be anything less than seamless chaos.
What’s the point? Simple: We’ve refined, in this country, a support system for failure and it is everywhere. Recently, during a visit with Ezra Klein of Vox, the President of the United States put it into his own words; “People are getting more and more comfortable with the diversity of this country, much more sophisticated about both the cultural differences but more importantly, the basic commonality that we have.”
What has Mr. Obama cloaked beneath the word “commonality”? Once again, very simple: An uber-powerful national government that systematically controls every aspect of your life, accountable only to itself. Clearly, and frequently demonstrated, he loathes the order of form which, by its nature and its own curriculum, requires accountability. And this describes the state of leadership in this country. You can’t fix what prefers to remain broken. Or can you?
