Post Election Protesters Are Not Protesting Trump


They’re protesting the grotesque image of him they see through the lens of their grand narrative / moral matrix.

The lens is deeply flawed.

It’s flawed because the education system not only failed to correct the imperfections in the lens, it exaggerated them.

The imperfections are the many entrenched yet questionable orthodoxies that are integral to the grand narrative of American Culture.  A small number of examples are listed here.

VIEWPOINT DIVERSITY ALONE WILL NOT FIX THIS!

THE QUESTIONABLE ORTHODOXIES THEMSELVES MUST BE CALLED OUT.

AND THEY MUST BE CORRECTED.

The job of the education system must be to improve the lens.

The political system is failing because the education system is failing.

The education system is failing because Social Justice University ALREADY EXISTS.  And so do Social Justice High, and Social Justice Middle School, and Social Justice Elementary School.

It is flat out wrong to suggest that universities should choose either the Telos of Truth or the Telos of Social Justice.

The Telos of Social Justice and the distorted lens it creates is the root cause of most of our current problems.   

ONLY the Telos of Truth is acceptable.

I Support Viewpoint Diversity

www.heterodoxacademy.org

A politically diverse group of social scientists, natural scientists, humanists, and other scholars who want to improve our academic disciplines and universities. We share a concern about a growing problem: the loss or lack of “viewpoint diversity.” When nearly everyone in a field shares the same political orientation, certain ideas become orthodoxy, dissent is discouraged, and errors can go unchallenged.

An Interpretation of Jonathan Haidt’s Moral Foundations Theory

This sidebar lists a series of posts which together make up an essay relating Moral Foundations Theory to today's politics, and even a little history, as viewed through The Independent Whig's six-foundation moral lens.
