THE Analysis of "Pluralism"

Historian James Hitchcock, 1979:

“The media’s alleged commitment to pluralism,” says Hitchcock, “is at base a kind of hoax. The banner of pluralism is raised in order to win toleration for new ideas as yet unacceptable to the majority. Once toleration has been achieved, public opinion is systematically manipulated first to enforce a status of equality between the old and the new, then to assert the superiority of the new over the old. A final stage is often the total discrediting, even sometimes the banning, of what had previously been orthodox.” Hitchcock quotes T.S. Eliot, who put the matter most bluntly: “Paganism holds all the most valuable advertising space.” --quoted by Esolen at Crisis

It's helpful to know the dictionary-definition of "tolerate," of course.  Then you'll understand why it's true that we 'tolerate' Obozo.
