Children are to be indoctrinated in the latter belief system which sees itself as neutral and enlightened above all others. It is becoming an intolerant religion trying to fill the void of meaning and morality in our lives as Christianity is pushed aside. A new iteration of Marxism, Progressiveness sees people not as individuals but as mere units of identity groups. Moral superiority comes from backing the most fashionable oppressed minority in the struggle for power.
It is to be expected that the Left of Labour is Progressive, but what is shocking is how the Conservative Party has fallen for the shallow ideology. They are mesmerised by the inviolable god, Equality, and terrified of crossing its high priests, the BBC.
Modernising Tories are embarrassed by all the proven conservative values that appeared sacrosanct under Mrs Thatcher: family, Christianity, patriotism, freedom, individual responsibility, even truth. They suppress our natural taboos, re-engineering us with State-enforced taboos against categories of people who are to be hated for dissenting from Progressiveness – the homophobes, racists, Islamophobes. Only a few years ago Cameron came to office promising to protect children from sexualisation. The Conservatives are now trying to force homosexual teaching on young children. That is the dangerous extremism that Ofsted should counter, Amanda Spielman.
More blasphemy against the god of Equality, please. In Solzhenitsyn’s words, ‘Human beings are born with different capacities. If they are free, they are not equal. And if they are equal, they are not free.’
