Identity Groups

Cooperation versus competition is not enhanced by identity groups. Identity groups emphasize selfie-ego advantage in the public arena just like other gangs.
  • classify by race, gender (56 of them), genitals & what one does with them
  • divide, conquer & pander for politicians
  • classify by vocation & wealth & pit one against the other - pander for votes & a share of the public purse
  • classify by education level
  • classify by nationality
  • classify geographic location - the south etc & culture & electial votes
  • malke laws, rules & regulations that favor one against the other & create crony capitalistic advantages for some not all
  • classify by religion & malign those who don't agree with your beliefs & legislate against them

I would like to know how if, say you are a gay black transgender Republican poor guy , knowing that fact is going to improve the selection of a president or legislator etc. or the quality of the government the rest of us who are not such are likely to experience.  Suppose a lot of your friends who are similarly classified get together & form a club how is that club going to improve the lot of those who are not in the club? Identity groups just produce polarity.

Bozo: ... nothing even remotely like that follows from what i said. 

imposing any consequences on a population will advantage those who have the ability to use them and disadvantage those who do not.  Can you devise any taxation method that will not advantage some and disadvantage others?  If so, i would like to know what it is.  And think carefully before you suggest a flat tax.
... We were mostly talking about civil rights & politics.  But, now that you bring up taxation, a code that has voters with no investment in paying taxes vote for giveaway programs out of which they benefit is part of the Bread & Circuses racket. 
How is doubling the national debt with ~75% of the taxes being paid by the upper 10% of the country's wealthy doing a better job.  The only real solution is to get rid of government out of the economy & get rid of wealth silos. A silo of wealth is stupid like a race horse at the starting line when the other horses are running around the track.

Just enforce the 14th amendment instead of writing more laws to give advantages to some & disadvantages to others while pretending to be equal .

The point about indentity groups is NOT the expression of uniqueness of each human being & culture etc. which has many ways of expression.  It is about the equal treatment specified as equal protection in the 14th amendment
... no extra privileges or denials of same for any of your favorite identity groups, eh? It would be interesting to go deep into the notion of protected classes & how that got past the 14th amendment, equal protection, but probably a waste of time here.

.. & the Anti-Discrimination Law

Well i didn't hear about it until right wing pundits started ragging on democrats for supporting the groups that they were always disadvantaging.  to me it is not a real force in politics ... rather it is just a RWG distraction to it ... kind of like ragging on a candidate because they ran their own email server. 
Didn't hear about what? Shit-assed democrats disadvantage themselves & others from the so-called White House on down the line.

Bozo: ...
That said, if the government stopped advantaging and/or disadvantaging any class of people, then the egalitarian ideal would be achieved.   But when you think about that in a practical manner, i'm not so very sure that it is even possible.  A government must impose consequences to govern, and any consequences in and of their nature will advantage some and disadvantage others. 
... apparently then government is inherently evil because of incompetent minds.
