Whenever I read about anthropology, sociology, or history, I feel like I’m filling my brain with dangerous radical leftist ideas

I guess it’s not really a surprise, since it’d be hard to rigorously study a hierarchy while at the same time assuming it’s “natural” or “the way things should be.” So such disciplines must fall back on the simplest assumption that we are otherwise equal, which is a fundamentally dangerous, radical, and leftist idea

Or at least, it’s dangerous to anyone feeling they depend on such a hierarchy.

@matt it took me a couple reads to understand what you’re getting at, but I think I do now. It’s similar to how I feel after years of biochemistry, that we’re all equivalent lumps of carbon nitrogen and oxygen. Yours is a much more humanistic way to phrase it though.

@matt better than how nice Pete sees people
