Following is a quote I came across on the website Return of Kings. Even though the article doesn’t have to do with any specific political issue — the topic is much broader — I thought the writer’s observation perfectly explains the transgender bathroom issue.
Because civilization has become its own determiner of what is true, or what is good or bad, it exerts a Darwinian effect and weeds out those who are realistic about what is actually true. Society has become a popularity contest and only those who flatter the illusions of others will succeed. Some call this “utilitarianism.”
