Diversity Thursday

One of the more pathetic secondary effects of the Diversity Industry's diktat is that is warps otherwise solid, intelligent minds into a twisted logic train that makes the writings of Soviet citizens' self-criticisms seem logical and clear.

Of course the primary effect of the Diversity Industry's actions is the promotion of sectarianism and discrimination - but a secondary impact is a reward system that encourages the weak-minded to parrot diktat for professional gain.

If you want to have a "Ref. A" during the Commissariat's "Accountability Reviews," then you need something to show them. "Admiral, Admiral, Admiral ..... look at what one of my JO's did! No sir, it isn't patronizing at all! It is makes a clear connection to the power and strength we gain by promoting division! On top of it all - it is just so relevant to the second decade of the 21st Century. Just read what we've contributed to the celebration of 100 years of Naval Aviation!"

Behold, the addled lickspittle writes!
On January 15, 2009, U.S. Airways flight 1549 landed on the Hudson River and all 155 passengers were safely evacuated. The flight attendants on the flight had from 27 to 39 years of experience. The men and women who fought for equal rights in the 60s and 70s may not have been able to prove at the time why their right to do the job they loved mattered to the airlines, but more than 20 years later those 155 passengers owe some small measure of thanks to them for ensuring they had such an experienced and diverse crew when it mattered most.

We may not be able to always articulate why diversity matters, but experience has taught us that we are more effective and safer and the mission gets done more often, if we learn to use everyone we have to their maximum potential. Shutting people out and shutting people down didn’t work in aviation and it doesn’t work in the world in general.
OK, that didn't work for you?

OK 13XX types - you'll love this ready room conversationalist;
Crew resource management, often shortened to CRM, is simply the effective utilization of all available resources to achieve efficient, safe flight operations. As a pilot, I often struggle with trying to explain to people why diversity matters in aviation, but when I read the definition of CRM, I think “that’s it”…diversity is CRM.
Really? How does it play into career ORM?

There are a couple of more examples in the article as well that ... well ... will make you glad you don't fly with her. One of her comments Marie Curie and - ahem - Mother Salamander would find particularly insulting.

Corrupt post-modern theories create distorted lenses to see life through. The picture they produce is just as messy.
