Tolerance and Diversity

Tolerance is a false label to promote double standards. Otherwise, the use of the word tolerance – usually in connexion with another word: diversity – would not mean what it is ostensibly connoted for. That is, tolerance without diversity means forebearance. On the other hand, tolerance with diversity means parallel or ‘double’ standards. In the sense that tolerance is a good thing in and of itself, lobbyists for the same might as well be promoting lawlessness, because that is what tolerance is in the context in which it is used – i.e., in terms of social standards. However, when tolerance is coupled with diversity – i.e., ethnic and cultural – it refers to multiple standards for judging social behavior.
