Is discrimination a bad thing?

Postby pharoah007 » Tue Oct 10, 2017 9:00 am

The word Is discrimination itself is always taken as a negative thing, however, I find myself thinking this is not the case. Of course anything taken to an extreme is a bad thing and extreme discrimination is not good (Nazi Germany, Rwanda, Former Yugoslavia ect ect).

But equally as bad is zero discrimination as this leads to a world where nothing is scrutinized and makes us all weaker.

Here is an author (unknown to me) who put my feelings into works with far more elegance than I ever could.

"I discriminate.

The entire human race are neither my brothers nor kin. There is nothing noble about non-discrimination—concepts such as love, trust and brotherhood lose all meaning when discrimination is removed.

Sorry, bleeding hearts—love does not exist without discrimination. The person who “loves everyone” actually loves no one. Imagine if I loved everyone as much as I loved my wife…this is a ridiculous notion—I love, honor and would lay down my life defending my wife before any other human on Earth precisely because I discriminate. Similarly, I strive to fill my inner circle with people who are strong, noble of character and wise because I discriminate.


If you choose the company of weaklings, cowards and fools in your court, don’t be surprised when your castle is laid waste.

We build our homes on strong foundations because we discriminate; we craft weapons from the strongest steel because we discriminate. Non-discrimination is weakness incarnate—a lie that is repeated again and again in hopes that mindless repetition will make it true.

In future times, humans who are not my brethren will compete for resources, wealth and power with myself, my children, my family, my tribe, and my nation; and, as has always been nature’s way, those most suited to rule will do so. Those suited to serve will fall into their places as well…as they always have.

Computers, political trends, communication, education, and improving technology will never change this simple facet of existence; natural hierarchy is an axiom upon which all life on Earth evolved over millions of years. All human servant revolts have, time and time again, resulted in more masters and more slaves.

I discriminate to give myself, my family, and (when my wife and I have children,) my progeny the best chance at being dominant rather than subservient in the unknowable future; and this is all common sense: you don’t encourage your children to hang out with unmotivated, drug addicted, or delinquent peers—you teach them to discriminate early on in life to improve their chances at being successful—of being dominant. You teach them to not trust strangers; in effect, to discriminate against the entire world of people who they don’t know. Trust is earned, not simply given.

“Something given has no value.”
– Robert Heinlein

Often, it appears to me that we are encouraged (by mass media, political movements, government and particular religious institutions) to abandon our common sense and the accrued wisdom of the ages…to instead give our loyalty pursuant to their agendas. These are false cults, designed only to strip power, liberty and wealth away from family, kin, tribe, folk, and ultimately, from you.

There is only one reason why anyone would encourage us to weaken our communities and tribal bonds, and it isn’t to make us more powerful, wealthy, safe or happy."

Are you being discriminated against, or just tired of excessive political correctness?

I could care less about the former, however, the later does bother me greatly.

'Couldn't care less' ;)

It is a good read. Are there many who have claimed to not discriminate?

discriminate? Bah, it's all perspective. The majority of this planet's population are either branded glass half empty and a vs half full and I'm a half full guy. I don't think when people say they love everyone, they mean equally, but only a glass half empty guy sees it that way :)
