Liberalism is sooooo passe. So 17th-century. Screw equal rights. The right of every individual to live in freedom is a perverse illusion.
Don't take my word for it. In the Globe & Mail, UBC PhD student David Moscrop appears to be saying that Enlightenment values just aren't a good fit for non-whites and the underpriveleged. Far better for indigenous movements to reject such nonsense (in favor of unequal treatment and racial supremacism, presumably).
"Middle-class, white and privileged at its core, liberalism, from its inception in the 17th and 18th centuries, was a particular way of thinking about the world based on two radical but flawed ideas: that each individual was equal and that each was free."
Interesting take. Unfortunately for Mr. Moscrop, his opinion is getting absolutely killed in the comments. One example:

To paraphrase Churchill, the only system worse than liberal democracy is all the other systems.
Especially systems centred around group identity politics such as ethnic nationalism, racialism, radical feminism, and tribalism.
Rejection of these corrosive and disfigured concepts is not a "blind spot"....More >>
