The left and genetics – welcome to the land of confusion

February 19, 2012

Over at the Guardian, a columnist raises the important issue of why racism is such a big issue in today’s society if, as liberals claim, races don’t exist in any meaningful way. 

However, as a critic of liberalism I’d put it another way – why do post-racial liberals get so offended by racist insults if they don’t believe in race? As committed liberals, shouldn’t they just laugh off delusional comments by “ignorant” race believers?

There’s also a column this week on the history of left-wing support for eugenics, which has attracted much comment from the Guardianistas.

Personally though, I don’t think today’s society has much to fear from left-wing eugenics. Its left-wing dysgenics we need to be more concerned about.
