Why opposing liberal anti-discrimination is not enough
Jeremy G. writes:
I agree with you that there is something about the West as a whole that has allowed liberalism to steadily advance. But tolerance among the masses is only a symptom, a manifestation of a belief in nothing, and is not the problem. The problem is not unrestrained tolerance but a lack of a credible affirming philosophy for European man. Christians, for example, are still intolerant of homosexuality because they have a strong belief that homosexuality is wrong. When the masses of whites in the south strongly believed that racial integration would be devastating, they resisted it. Today they have largely adopted a liberal belief system and now they can be tolerant of nonwhite immigration. The liberals themselves are extremely intolerant, of racially conscious whites for example. They call this “zero tolerance” instead of “intolerance”. The problem we face is not tolerance, it is the lack of a strong and healthy affirming philosophy for ourselves. It is important to make a correct diagnosis, so we know how to resist our ruin and rebuild our incredibly damaged civilization.LA replies:
I agree one hundred percent.
