pluralism destroys itself

"This Enlightenment attitude of 'partisanship as pejorative' is based on a supposition of neutrality. It assumes that the very diversity of ideas is itself an end, rather than a means to an end. The problem that pluralism produces is that it destroys itself in the process. Contradictory and opposing ideas, by definition, cannot all be held and applied by one society. Some partisan notion will always dominate and, in so doing, will smother any notion of pluralism."

- Scott Oliphint, Covenantal Apologetics
