Well, we knew that math does NOT lead to a more interesting social life but… now get this from American Thinker:
One thing you realize when following the follies and foibles of social justice warriors is that there is no limit to their idiocies – that anything and everything can be declared “racist” or “sexist” if they stretch logic and reason beyond the breaking point.
Case in point: a course designed to teach high school kids that mathematics, as taught in the Western world, is a “dehumanizing tool” that has been used to “trick indigenous peoples out of land and property.”More.
But can anyone imagine a world without math? And how did it get to be “Western” math anyhow? Isn’t math liberating for anyone who chooses to take advantage of it?
Calling it “Western” math sounds like calling accountable government “Western” government.
Hint: If you don’t have accountable government where you live, hold a revolution and keep it going until you do. Don’t blame the “Western” world if we have accountable governments and you don’t.
Most of us did nothing to deserve that; we just happened to be born here. You, by contrast, could be part of a revolution!
