But the content of this post is almost banal. The big idea is that people disagree about issues such as what to do about ageism because they do not realize that they do not share assumptions, and given a lack of shared position on big issues, the little issues "declaring ageism bad" is not so simple. So I am going to go over the obvious three assumptions that lie at the heart of this debate and observe that indeed not everyone agrees with them.
But given this diversity of opinion about something I would think would just be obvious, we, the forces of good, must work extra hard to.end discrimination in our society. It won't happen, apparently, unless there is a mass movement to change things.
