The Antidiscrimination Paradigm: Irrational, Unjust, and Tyrannical
By Ben O’Neill
This article appeared in the Spring 2009 issue of The Independent Review


Abstract

The proliferation of laws against racial and sexual discrimination has been accompanied by a wider moral crusade that has made it highly taboo to call attention to even the most obvious distinctions between groups of people. The logical consequence of the paradigm behind these trends is not merely political egalitarianism, but also the obliteration of categorical distinctions between people, even when they are statistically valid and morally benign.
