Even Steven Pinker was cancelled for a brief moment in time.
The MIT linguist responsible for the treatise outing the myths of the “noble save”, the “ghost in the machine” and the “blank slate”, in branding popular Ivy League tendencies as a farce, was ostracized among intellectual communities for his endorsement of common sense which culminated in a very public and disturbing funeral pyre as a consequence for describing truth.
Pinker theorized that systemic racism had far existed beyond the scope of European colonialism and to the dawn of humanity where the duality of existence and prostitution existed as the founding tendrils of society, a revelation that earned a New York Times scathing editorial tarnishing his character with all the subtlety of a morose mutiny upon a haphazard and listing vessel only implied to float, but destined to sink.
Cue Seattle City Council member Kshama Sawant in contributing to the collective debate as an egregious demagogue introduced proposed legislation effectively eliminating the caste system from the local ecosystem, an infrastructure adopting elements of Asian-Indian culture first facilitated before the rule of the British empire, a true indictment of hypocrisy and the initial auspices of pseudo-intellectual arrogance. Allegedly, the prosperous tapestry of the American dream is an oblivious thought experiment to those on the opposite side. The precarious cleft of free will separating those striving to modify human behavior and those battling for fundamental liberties illustrates the fundamental divide destroying the country.
An article published by Aljazeera, a curiously moderate journalistic entity in a teeming sea of liberal bias, profiled Sawant’s campaign the ancient Indian caste system from being applied to the social dynamics of the US. Allegedly, her father left a disturbing impression on the Marxist politician after berating a female servant in the lower rung of the culture’s rigid hierarchy. The self-proclaimed Socialist and radicalized ideologue who somehow managed to avert a recall vote in 2021 is once again wasting tax-payer dollars and burgling time to push an personalized agenda based on emotion and the anecdotal. However, in this instance the ideological miscreant is indirectly proving that systemic racism was a cornerstone of ancient societies, and the base members of her platform cannot be too pleased that position to demonized white European colonists has been significantly weakened by her insolence and ignorance.
The strain on public funds to officially identify and codify a culture nuance in a region where the vast majority of the population adheres to the ideals specified in the Constitution is as reckless and idealistic as the entire parcel of legislation drafted over the last decade in appeasing special interests. Elected officials with a fetish for authoring mandates that are not conducive to the majority should be held accountable for the damage which they inflict and the subsequent bureaucratic clutter that stymies the legal system.
In referencing the Constitution and the First Amendment, how is an anti-caste behavioral bill even possible within the republic and how would it be enforced? Similar measures have been passed on a municipal level attempting to micromanage what is construed as “hate speech”, an extremely dangerous genre of mandates that attack fundamental liberties.
Adhering to the axiom of “just because one says something doesn’t make it so” the posturing of political degenerates continues to plague society as individuals with designs on reengineering what is construed as “normal” understand the premise of freedoms and ironically exploit liberty to suppress the population. Sawant’s treatise to address a phantom issue represents the contemporary nightmare of the information age and puts the onus on voters to make better choices for the sake of the future.
