How is your society or culture described?

When any entity, whether individual or collective, has lost or failed to achieve any quantifiable or logically supportable virtues, it applies to itself neutral adjectives which can not be logically proven or substantiated as virtues.  Such adjectives are intended not to be interrogated or examined, but to provide a sense of validation and satisfaction, provided nobody questions their logical foundation or supposed benefits.

Examples:

  • Diverse.
  • Multicultural.
  • Progressive.

None of those adjectives actually mean anything good or beneficial. They might, if some qualification or explanation were added. But on their own, they mean nothing.
