Listening to the the Ben Shapiro Elon Musk interview earlier this morning and Musk’s comments about how the DEI doctrine was like something from a George Orwell book, it suddenly occurred to me that an earlier author, William Shakespeare in another context, was onto this DEI caper or a variation of it several hundred years ago in Macbeth.
Instead of DEI he called them witches.
The three witches, of hubble, bubble, toil and trouble fame were Shakespeare’s DEI equivalent. He could have easily be describing DEI.
In his obtuse style, writing about the three witches he wrote that: “𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐢𝐧𝐬𝐭𝐫𝐮𝐦𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐬 𝐨𝐟 𝐝𝐚𝐫𝐤𝐧𝐞𝐬𝐬 𝐭𝐞𝐥𝐥 𝐮𝐬 𝐭𝐫𝐮𝐭𝐡𝐬, 𝐰𝐢𝐧 𝐮𝐬 𝐰𝐢𝐭𝐡 𝐡𝐨𝐧𝐞𝐬𝐭 𝐭𝐫𝐢𝐟𝐥𝐞𝐬, 𝐭𝐨 𝐛𝐞𝐭𝐫𝐚𝐲 𝐮𝐬 𝐢𝐧 𝐝𝐞𝐞𝐩𝐞𝐬𝐭 𝐜𝐨𝐧𝐬𝐞𝐪𝐮𝐞𝐧𝐜𝐞”
Think about that — Telling us smiley truths, seducing us and luring us, winning us across, much to our detriment and then betraying us.
Because when you frame the DEI ideology from the standpoint of “𝐰𝐡𝐨 𝐜𝐨𝐮𝐥𝐝 𝐩𝐨𝐬𝐬𝐢𝐛𝐥𝐲 𝐚𝐫𝐠𝐮𝐞 𝐭𝐡𝐚𝐭”, with such noble objectives as Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, words in this context that are deliberately designed to cloud and obscure their true intent, you begin to see that these three soft, nectar off the tongue and mollifying words are indeed the instruments of darkness Shakespeare describes but in this instance not the three witches but the three words of: 𝐃𝐢𝐯𝐢𝐬𝐢𝐨𝐧, 𝐄𝐱𝐜𝐥𝐮𝐬𝐢𝐨𝐧 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐈𝐧𝐝𝐨𝐜𝐭𝐫𝐢𝐧𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧. .
