No Generalizations: The Core Philosophy Behind the Cultural Left

Posted on the 17 August 2016 by Calvinthedog

PC, SJWism and Cultural Left  can be summed up as:

  • No generalizations!
  • All generalizations are false!
  • What about the exceptions?
  • The exceptions prove that the theory is false!

In fact, we have a liberal commenter on here who engages in all of the above forms of sophistry and logical fallacy all the time.

The Cultural Left underlying argument is that generalizations lead to stereotypes which lead to bigotry, racism, sexism, homophobia, Islamophobia, transphobia and whatever else the Phobia of the Day happens to be. So by declaring that all generalizations are false, we can strike a blow against bigotry.

But this attitude is not only false but also idiotic. Anyone who tries to go through life without making generalizations or even stereotypes will fail in life in the worst possible way. Sure, you will be free of bigotry, but you will also be one of the stupidest people on Earth. You will be gullible, continuously conned and victimized and a complete social failure, and that’s if you survive long at all before a criminal takes you out. Your social skills will be abysmal. Most of your relationships will fail because you will be unable to manage them effectively. You will get fired from most jobs.

You could always go live in a cabin in the woods, but even there you would probably not survive. I assume you would be killed by some wild animal because you would probably refuse to make generalizations about the poor critters around you. I guess that would be animalism (anti-animal racism or animalphobia or some other form of anthropocentric bigotry). If you are out in the woods all the time, and you refuse to make generalizations about those wild animals all around you, you will probably be target practice or dinner sooner or later.
