A No-Fault Holocaust

an article in U.S. News & World Report by John Leo

(our site's article review)

The nonjudgmentalism and political correctness in our culture has gone about as far as it can go. Teachers are beginning to find students that cannot find immorality in even the Holocaust. They’ve taken the Biblical advice (from Matthew) to “judge not that ye shall not be judged” a bit too far. Cultural relativism has certainly been pushed too far. The only areas where moral criticism is alive and well are smoking, environmentalism, women’s rights and animal rights.

People are going to colleges determined to prove how open-minded and politically correct they are. Had they been brought up properly, they’d certainly not be “open-minded” or “nonjudgmental” about absolute evils like crime, murder, rape, torture, ethnic cleansing and the Holocaust. But many are “open-minded” in these areas, and it reflects on the moral values in their home environments, schools, peers and media. We surely don’t need authoritarianism’s absolutes to simply be accepted on faith like in the old days when kids were supposed to absorb and believe everything and question nothing like sponges with ears.

But we cannot survive the 21st century if our planet’s citizens are moral ignoramuses, who cannot think, problem-solve, or question, and whose moral relativism makes them tolerant toward everything and everyone, unable to show good judgment, or any judgment. On juries, such people would excuse any and all behavior, unable to act like American citizens. Such a vulnerable population of sheep would inevitably encounter a tyrant eager to lead them. Goodbye rights, hello servitude and slavery.

The U.S. has already transmogrified into an oligarchy, and this final hypertolerant insult to freedom, democracy, justice, and morality would regress the U.S. into feudalism. (See The US is an oligarchy, study concludes.)

Lacking good moral values in their home environments, schools, peers and media, the citizen-sheep would 'nonjudgmentally' regress us from oligarchy to feudalism

The author reports that values clarification programs in schools, which seemed to support excess relativism, are slowly giving way to character education programs which seek a reasonable consensus rooted in simple decency and respect. This is good. But it hardly makes up for the fact that so many home environments apparently contain no moral learning, so that kids get all the way to college ready to accept mass slaughter as something to be “nonjudgmental” about. Thanks for the heads up on this problem, John Leo. Is all this perhaps the legacy of the monumental blunder known as "bleeding-heart liberalism"? Bleeding-heart liberals are the airheads that voted for Obama twice because of the incredibly naive unconscious worry that if they didn't vote for him it would demonstrate racial prejudice! But in truth, it only demonstrated racial prejudice because of voting for a black man because he was black!

Alfie Kohn wants classrooms to move from compliance to community, with kids working with teachers cooperatively and teachers treating students as fellow citizens in a small community where everyone deserves respect—not just the teacher
