Thought For the Day…
Replace the word “racism” with the word “culturism” (it doesn’t exist, by the way, but should). Would that change anything? What would it change if so? Would it make a difference in how society sees diversity?
Think about it like this: if you couldn’t argue that “it’s in their blood” because culturism would say that biologically all humans are similar (excluding obvious differences in gender and skin color) what would be the point in discriminating against it? If discrimination were based on the differences in one society’s beliefs and practices how could you argue that one culture is superior to the other if there was no proof other than opinions? Would diversity become part of the culture instead of something for people to argue over?
We are moving towards a global unification. There is no doubt this will happen. History proves it to be true. Go read Roman history, Persian history, Chinese history, etc… empires were built and the point of empires is unification. We are simply walking towards a future that is certain. IF you remove the fear of that then why should diversity scare you? There is no point to fearing your culture will be eradicated. Like the Romans, they simply absorbed one culture after another.
This is what I was thinking about this morning while reading a history of humankind. Sapiens by Yuval Noah Harari is an excellent read, especially if you like books that make you ask questions.
Just wanted to throw this out into the void and see what y’all have to say.
