The results of Relativism in the modern world
Dec 15, 2019
This illustrates what is happening in our schools, institutions, and government.
After posting the video above, I came across this:
Many factors have combined over the last 50 years to remove the moral scaffolding into which we fit incoming information and prioritize it. Judeo-Christian values have been demonized and replaced with relativism. Relativism implies that nothing is all good or all bad, all wrong or all right. There are no justified priorities. Live and let live. Once this took hold, toxic education stepped into the breach and indoctrinated students with substitutes for what used to be "right" and "wrong." The only truth is your own personal well-being. So teachers set about redefining history and interpreting ideas with which the left disagrees as harm to one's person.
This makes it a small step to say "speech is violence." Golly, I might get hurt! That milestone has long passed, and added to it is "silence is violence." Wow, maybe I'm being hurt and I don't even know it!
Actual history is being replaced by dopey but powerful ideas. Today's teachers tell our youths that America was full of noble savages living in peace before Europeans came and annihilated them. A moment's thought to the idea would suggest that if those people hadn't come here, what do you think would have happened? A little more thought might point out that we didn't invent local traditions such as scalping.
