Watch on

This isn’t happening. This is a video capture of a super-cool sculptural painting hanging in the basement of the British Library, in London. The artist has done many such paintings, but this is the best (and all the others are very similar). It’s called “Paradoxymoron”, by Patrick Hughes. (video courtesy of Gennarino)

Paradox of tolerance

The tolerance paradox arises from a problem that a tolerant person might be antagonistic toward intolerance, hence intolerant of it. The tolerant individual would then be by definition intolerant of intolerance. This problem is at the heart of the dilemma faced by pluralist societies who wish to embrace diversity, but in doing so ostensibly exclude those who do not embrace diversity, which includes a large portion of the world’s population.


how in the hell…
