The essential lesson (Brin)

The essential lesson of tolerance and diversity is not that all ways are morally equal, or that “not-us” is routinely better than “us.” A far saner and more supportable justification for diversity is that we all benefit—both ethically and pragmatically—every time we learn fresh perspectives.

David Brin
