Re: "Diversenfreude" And The Case Of Jones Day By Anonymous Attorney

Affirmative Action and "diversity" programs have been detrimental to social and economic efficiency because you cannot simultaneously pursue diversity and excellenceWhat you WILL do is lower the level of accepted competence, and dumb down the entire system; and like a metastasizing cancer, mediocrity will spread throughout the culture. Combine diversity with institutional "credentialism," and you get people in positions of authority without talent, experience or basic leadership skills; but a smug arrogance will not be lacking. [From my book REDOUBTS: Missives of Paleo-populism at the Twilight of Western Civilization.]
