As Estragon says in Samuel Beckett’s play Waiting for Godot, “People are bloody ignorant apes.” We must face this fact. Therefore, we the elites at Cornell University, are compelled to tell people what to think. The importance of our mission, given the existential threats of Climate Change, White Supremacy, and Transphobia, is clear. To fulfill our mission, we must suppress any speech that promotes free thinking. Free speech can only subvert our goals of ending Climate Change, White Supremacy, and Transphobia in order to create a diverse, equitable, and inclusive world, where each person is a global citizen in a perfect world in which they belong.
In order to build such a perfect world, free from delusion, we must realize and act on the fact that free thinking and free speech are
remnant[s] of archaic times. Objective verification of ideas [must be] rejected since no reality beyond [our]…opinion exists. The deviant point of view [must be] considered dangerous for the weak. Free thought is experienced as a thwarting, hostile force. The critical word, the deviating attitude, the non-conformism of one man threatens the clan. The individual is only permitted to think with the tribe. Archaic thinking follows what we might call an imperialistic strategy. It lulls people to sleep…. [Our]…thinking is identifying thinking; it takes account only of totalities and never of parts. Specific and particular forms have no value. Only the recurrent and expected is accepted.
Joost A. M. Meerloo’s (pictured above) thoughts expressed above must inspire us to thwart, suppress, and cancel any speech that harms our ability to make a perfect world characterized not only by Diversity but by Mass Diversity, in which everybody is a global citizen, and in which everybody has the feeling of wellbeing and belonging.
