Objectively Good Indoctrination

Some simp on Twitter is arguing that indoctrination is fine if you are being indoctrinated into “something that’s objectively good.”

The poor ignoramus is unaware that every totalitarian regime always positions its belief system as “objectively good.” The most evil regimes in history never said, “here are our evil beliefs. We want to make bad things happen, so do what we say.” They always claim they are a force for the greatest good that ever existed.

  1. “The ideas of the ruling class are in every epoch the ruling ideas, i.e. the class which is the ruling material force of society, is at the same time its ruling intellectual force.” (Marx sometimes hit the nail squarely on its head.)

    1. Cliff’s article says the second officer also faces charges:

      “Rolfe was charged with felony murder and 10 other counts after video showed him shooting Brooks twice in the back with his service handgun after a scuffle in which Brooks stole his taser.

      A second officer on the scene, Devin Brosnan, did not discharge his weapon. He faces a handful of lesser charges, including aggravated assault and violation of his oath. ”

      Why? How did Devin Brosnan violate his oath? Should he have stopped Rolfe from shooting in a half-second before it took place? How? Didn’t Brooks commit “aggravated assault”? I do not want to watch the end of this video, so may be I miss something.

      Suppose a cop wrongly shoots and kills a woman sleeping in her flat. Surely, other cops cannot always prevent another cop from acting wrongly, so it may create a dangerous precedent.

    1. No, we were discussing diversity seminars. It took me under 10 minutes to trap him into sinning against racial justice dogma.

      These poor little fools. They think they invented this and it will be easy to keep under control.

      1. Ok, I get it – indoctrination is bad unless it’s into something that references the supernatural and is exempt from taxation.

        1. If anybody forced people at work to attend an indoctrination into the tenets of the Christian faith, that would be terrible, too.

          Like sex is rape without consent, exposure to ideas changes its nature if it’s unwilling.

          If people want to gather and read White Fragility together, good for them. If they want to force somebody to do it with them, that’s wrong. Why is this hard to understand?
