Hardly a day goes by without some public expression of what some believe are societal “values” - diversity, inclusiveness and tolerance. I, for one, am disgusted with what seems to be blind and almost universal acceptance of these concepts as self fulfilling moral values. Each of us applies our own moral values to much of our lives including to these concepts. However, they are, in and of themselves, no more social values than their opposites: homogeneity, exclusive-ness and intolerance. It is in our interpretation of these, and other, concepts that moral values (or lack of) are evident. For example, how could “tolerance” of pedophilia be considered a positive social value?
Any other thoughts and ideas on this subject?
