We are familiar with the political and social negative consequences of critical race theory, but here Justine Waters at Areo considers the moral flaw at its heart – its utopianism allows us little or no freedom to make our own choices and judgments:
None of us can do everything that is good all of the time. We make choices and we prioritise our values. Every choice involves negation (I want this, not that.) Choices necessarily involve gain and loss, and consequences, some of which cannot be predicted in advance. To remove them would be to eliminate our political liberty, and with it our human flourishing.
