"Discrimination (to the Modern Leftist) is the ultimate sin."

"All cultures, all behaviours, all plans and courses of action, all people and all nations, are inherently equal. Therefore, no matter what anybody does, they ought always to get equal results. This does not happen. Therefore, there must be some swindle going on — in some unseen way (‘systemic’ is the usual word), those who succeed are taking away success from those who fail. To you and me, who look at facts and evidence and reason, it is obvious that a man who works twelve hours a day at productive employment will do better than the man who spends those twelve hours drinking whisky. But to the Modern Leftist, there is a priori no reason to prefer work to whisky; therefore the man who works is robbing the drunkard." -- Tom Simon commenting at The Knife and the Pony | John C. Wright's Journal

Your Say

I can't believe that this article and the comments failed to mention Evan Sayet, who's ideas are replicated therein.

Discrimination, as a word, has totally lost its meaning now. I am to the point where I prefer a man who has an opinion of his own, no matter what it is. This is the essence of freedom of conscience.
