I'm being serious, I've never heard quotas or affirmative action justified by saying they will cure poverty. It's always about under-representation and diversity in the workplace, a cure for the actions of horrible racist white people and glass ceilings etc. Poverty solvers usually talk about welfa...

I think the most ethical and effective solution would be anyone who wants a government hand out has to get sterilised. Jawohl, mein Fuhrer! :hockey: :mrgreen: A silly comment Hitler supported a form of Eugenics the welfare state is dysgenics being opposed to it does not make you a eugenicist. A goo...

I think it would, as it would help to remove some of the barriers and things that make things like affirmative action necessary in the first place. Note to Feminists: Sweetleaf is female. This proves I'm not sexist. Checkmate. :scratch: I thought the comment proved that Sweetleaf agreed with you on...

That isn't the communist attitude, the attitude is everyone works/contributes so that everyone can have a comfortable life. I mean ok might have been the soviet russia under Stalin attitude, but that doesn't really encompass the over-all idea. I understand the basic principles of communism... But h...

Why is it the fault of the rich that the poor choose to have children they cannot afford? Corruption can make people poor but the vast majority of people are poor because their parents were poor and chose to have kids they couldn't provide for. Decades ago, a learned man pointed out to me that, sta...

Truthfully, I believe "affirmative action" makes "minorities" look bad. "Minorities" themselves have told me this. I feel it's just about time to dispense with "affirmative action." Why not replace it with more scholarships based on "need?" But betw...

Hi all. This will be another thread in which I criticize the left a bit. Let's talk about affirmative action. I totally understand why affirmative action exists. Some women and minorities are dirt poor and that sucks. Here's the thing: What if America had a proper social safety net? Would affirmati...

BTW, where have you been all my life? :wink: If that's a compliment of my analysis of the political landscape I'll say that it took me long enough to figure out where I stand and gain a proper understanding of both sides of the political spectrum so I could verify that there are people on both side...

Truthfully, while I think people can transcend social conditioning by getting away from other people and staking out their own space to think, I'm less sure that people can really overcome biological limitations to their own intellect or mental health. Sup, dude... Bret Weinstein talks about the fl...
