We celebrate diverse* perspectives
But with limits.
We can’t celebrate diversity around
Our core values
Such as ‘not killing people who disagree with you’.
As such, diversity can’t really be considered an absolute
That we either ‘have’, or ‘don’t have’.
It’s more a matter of degree – about how many perspectives that we are ‘willing’ to allow.
Or how many perspectives are ‘practical’ within
Where we draw the line between ‘acceptable’ and ‘not’
Helps to draw a distinction between cultures.
If ‘our’ line and ‘their’ line
The cultures will probably have trouble ‘getting along’.
