Confirmation bias

When the philosophy known as “intersectionality” is taught to young people, they are inculcated into a religious dogma – that every vicissitude of life suffered by anyone not a normal, healthy white male is due to “oppression.” This leads to phrases – spoken entirely unironically, mind – like “EVERYTHING is problematic.”

And leads to the predictable outcome: cries of “racism” and “sexism” that are entirely, utterly bogus.

Because intersectionality is nothing more than a particular form of confirmation bias, weaponized so that its acolytes will never be able to use reason to call into question their received dogmas.

A mind is a terrible thing to waste.
