One of the reasons I started writing was to document inconsistencies within influential ideologies. Not that pointing out inconsistencies is likely to influence ideologues, but it does seem somewhat cathartic to the reasonable person to express this sort of exasperation. This will just be in simple list format, slowly added over time as new ones pop into my head.
- Why do Progressives believe gentrification destroys poor communities by changing the socio-economic structures, but also believe that immigration has none of the same effects on a host nation?
- Why do Progressives believe organizations be “affirmative action” which by definition discriminates by demographics, but also believe the same organizations should be “equal opportunity” which by definition does not discriminate by demographics?
Similar quotes, in original form:
- “If choosing my values is good, why does it become bad if I choose cultural cohesion and somewhat traditional sex roles?” James Kalb
- “How can ‘diversity’ (respecting differences) and ‘inclusiveness’ (eliminating the effect of differences) be the same?” James Kalb
