Isn't the true test of tolerance whether you can tolerate things you don't like even if that thing is intolerance?

Best Answer

no, that's absurd. Bigotry, racism and the like are hateful and harmful. Should rape then be tolerated? fraud, deception, violence? There are some behaviors that shouldn't be tolerated....including willful stupidity. We don't need to kill these people, but they need to be told by their peers and others that some things are unacceptable.

There's a big difference between stopping rape, fraud, violence, etc. and being hostile to someone who has comes to a different conclusion as you. Bigotry and racism are nothing more than just thoughts and views, in application they can be harmful (Jim Crow laws for example) but in and of themselves they're just thoughts. There's also a big difference between simply telling someone that they're wrong and backing it up with facts and logic as opposed to socially castigating people for believing something different than you which is more often than not the accepted practice (that practice is usually just as devoid of logic and facts as the racists). It should also be pointed out that most of the accusations of racism, bigotry, discrimination, etc. are usually something ambiguous said that is just construed as racism for one reason or another, you virtually never see overt racism anymore, just things that are implied as racism by some moral authoritarian. My whole point is that certitude about other people and complex situations such as racism whether in opposition or support is much more dangerous than just having a little humility before deciding someone is morally wrong.
