Democratic Diversity or Disaster?
Diversity in this nation has polarized its people to the point that it’s ripping this country apart. The identity politics played out and laid out by the Democratic Party is about “identity … gender, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, social class, religion, morality, culture and history.
These very elites who proclaim it to be its greatest attribute, have actually enhanced the disintegration of our society via policy and construct of what they deem to be morally correct behavior and attitudes. As the core issues appear to be about identity, culture and religion – compromise seems immoral. We have become more like the middle eastern nations who slaughter each other over whether or not Sunni or Shiite is the correct religious believer with no middle ground.
Just take a look at some of the issues we are at war with., abortion, homosexuality, same-sex marriage, white cops, transgender, cops and crime, black crime, Confederate monuments, LGBT rights, affirmative action.
Are we headed for this type of internal national discourse or are we intelligent enough as a people to remedy the situation before it gets out of control? Or are we ready there?
