TO RUN, OR

NOT TO RUN

a risk. images

There’s a lot of guff being emitted by the nice PC folks. Ya gotta comply—you know, go along with what they dictate as ‘legal’. Otherwise you are a racist, sexist, atheist swine or worse.

FOR MYSELF

I’m a pragmatic idealist, a theoretician-dreamer. So? This came in minutes ago—

HOW TO STRAIGHTEN UP

The people who administer the test say that with “active efforts” a person with subconscious bias can act in a non-prejudiced fashion. That’s probably a good idea if you are a judge or if you are working in human resources. But do you need to spend your whole life actively watching out for your subconscious?

ANYONE WHO

tells us not to be judgemental is—essentially—either a dupe, a fool, or out for control of your wallet. (Any takers?)

The quote is from a New Zealand Herald article titled “It’s black and white-simple test tells if you’re a racist” … for link: CLICK HERE.

hate speech? YOU’D BE A FOOL

(in many places a suicidal fool) not to rely on your own judgement.

Your own judgement is to a large degree (nooooo~!)* based on your experiences and what you’ve been told. You can modify it any time.

FOR MYSELF?

A couple of simple rules that’ve always served me well (and in some insalubrious places too)—

JUDGE FOR YOURSELF

JUDGE BY WHAT THEY DO, NOT WHAT THEY CLAIM

IF IN DOUBT—GET OUT

There’s more but the above serves as intro:  Anyone telling you not to use your own judgement is a threat.

Be wary, often your judgement is all that stands between you and something nasty. Use it.
