Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

There are some things only intellectuals are crazy enough to believe.
George Orwell

If you have encountered “Diversity, Equity and Inclusion”, you might notice a disconnect between what the concepts are supposed to mean, and what they actually mean — or lead to. In this “New Discourses” podcast, James Lindsay addresses each of the concepts and provides context. He begins with Diversity, continues with Inclusion, and ends with Equity. While the order is due to how the context relate to each other, I agree with Gad Saad here, it makes the more honest abbreviation.

I can only highly recommend the podcast episode — and other works by him as well (e.g., “How to have impossible conversations” with Peter Boghossian). He practices what he preaches and criticizes these concepts in an open and fair manner without attributing malice to (most of) its adherents.

Highly recommended.
