Secularism is a Western Value. So is the belief in a representative government. So are things like Human Rights, Impartial Trials, Equality for everyone and Egalitarianism, Feminism, Peer Review, Freedom of Information, Universal Literacy, I could go on and on, but these are ideas that were founded or refined in "The west", that being, Europe and the United States, where these ideas were developed, studied, debated, spread, and eventually embraced, and fought over, for many centuries. The reason we even have these as universal concepts is that Europe spread out itself and its cultural ideas to the rest of the world, which included these teachings.
It kinda infuriates me that a person whose entire point rests of the accomplishments of people who pushed these ideas to be "western values" in the first place is claiming there are no such things, without even giving credit to where credit is due. They probably think Egalitarianism was invented by some Middle Eastern Woman in 1954, or that Suffrage was a concept we stole from Abyssinia in 1890, or that only black people believed in everyone learning to read and white and that the illiterate white man stole their knowledge or some other BS.
It's tiresome that good things are disregarded because people on one side of a political compass can't stand the thought that they don't by default win, that their morality isn't the 100% standard norm of all people. Left wing or Right wing its goddamn obnoxious and I really hate it.
And as for the electoral college point, ask them how the election came down to Pennsylvania if only Texas, California, and New York mattered?
If they really, really, want to fix the system and make it "more representative", why not champion for it to not have a Winner Take All system? Becuase if you switch it to a popular vote, but keep the winner take all system, what exactly do you accomplish, but make the same BS you're mad about, but just with a different face. To me it seems more people are angry that we have a winner take all system, where whoever gets a state gets all the votes of the state.
So shouldn't fixing that be a higher priority then removing a part of our constitution? Because the constitution doesn't lay out that this needs to be a winner take all system. It can be changed easliy at a state level if people campaigned and made it an issue worth debating.
