I haven’t gone the way of politics for a while, as most of my friends and family are liberals and won’t talk to me for a few days after a typical Killer J political post. I could go for a good helping of ostracization. Then again, most close to me don’t pretentiously bloviate with righteous indignation like the vacuous dick heads in my television set.
So, I guess I’ll just make my point. You can’t have equality and diversity. Both of these are great things, but liberals want them imposed on us by the government. Well, you can’t have both. In order to be equal, you would have to do more than just redistribute land and money. Redistributing land and money equally is absolutely impossible anyway, but the issue goes deeper than that.
For true equality, you would have to be a genderless, colorless, faithless, and even beliefless (is that a word?) society. People categorize things by how they differentiate. We do this from a young age. In an earlier blog, I went in to this categorization process a lot deeper. I won’t elaborate on that part here. Where there is categorization, there is comparison. Let’s take gender by itself. For the record, I believe both sexes should be equal so save me the feminist drivel. Also for the record, men have a physical advantage over women no matter how you slice it. This creates inequality, which influences our thoughts on the actual capabilities (albeit unfairly in this technological age) of the genders. Unless you turn us all in to Eunichs, the difference between the genders promotes discrimination all by itself. By the way, don’t “Google Image” search the word Eunich. Seriously, don’t.
Long story short, all the wonderful things that make us humans different, or diverse, have a dark side. I don’t think diversity and equality are necessarily mutually exclusive, but for each standard to be realized in its entirety is a pipe dream. Nevertheless, take a vote.
