“Responsibility without authority is slavery.” – Rollo Tomassi
This is a quote that cuts to the heart of what is wrong with Critical Race Theory. It assigns responsibility for actions to those who did not perform them while simultaneously denying those with responsibility for “fixing” the problem the authority to do so. All you can do is admit fault, accept guilt, and do what your masters demand of you. Isn’t that the very definition of slavery – of being a slave?
Is it a wonder that Democrats support CRT? This is the party that stripped the franchise from minorities and women. It is the party that championed slavery, and when they failed at maintaining their peculiar institution attempted to back door it through segregation and discrimination. And who today are reinstituting both in the name of equality.
This also makes the point that today’s conservative is actually a classical liberal. They are trying to conserve classical liberal values: equality before the law, equality of opportunity (not outcomes), and limited government with powers granted by the will of the people. The “progressives” are really trying to bring back medieval feudalism, with all the inequality that system entailed.Published in
