This is another project that appears to be a coalition of liberals, centrists, and center-right types against the “far left.” What is being described here, along with the University of Austin project being described in the previous post, is largely what the future of “conservatism” will look like, i.e. “liberal” but not “far-left” and/or totalitarian humanist. That’s more or less what Western European politics looks like. What in America would be considered liberals, centrists, or the center-right are the “conservatives,” totalitarian humanists are the “left,” although a serious left of actual socialists and communists remain on the margins, and folks resembling American-style conservatives are considered the “populists” or “far-right.”
Foundation Against Intolerance and Racism (FAIR)
Increasingly, American institutions — colleges and universities, businesses, government, the media and even our children’s schools — are enforcing a cynical and intolerant orthodoxy. This orthodoxy requires us to identify ourselves and each other based on immutable characteristics like skin color, gender and sexual orientation. It pits us against one another, and diminishes what it means to be human.
Today, almost 70 years after Brown v. Board of Education ushered in the Civil Rights Movement, there is an urgent need to reaffirm and advance its core principles. To insist on our common humanity. To demand that we are each entitled to equality under the law. To bring about a world in which we are all judged by the content of our character and not by the color of our skin.
That’s where FAIR comes in.
