Non-solving ideologies

if your ideology entails suppressing an arguably intrinsic aspect of human experience — such as tribalism, greed/selfishness, diversity, or irrationality — to function, then you haven't really solved anything; the same way ethnic cleansing doesn't really solve the problem of ethnic tensions, it just removes the need to solve that problem by sacrificing value.

(emphasis on: tribalism and greed/selfishness for left-wingers, diversity for right-wingers, irrationality for ""rationalists"" — but not actual rationalists, who know better)

instead of creating a good world for people to live in, you have changed people such that creating a world that satisfies them is easier.

you changed the problem to make it easier, instead of trying to solve it.
