In this case it's simply about providing a better education, which is the ostensible purpose of these institutions.Admin wrote: ↑6 months agoThere is absolutely no evidence that affirmation action helps in any way, to the contrary, it's just another form of unfair discrimination.
I've been a victim of it several times, and based on how I felt afterwards, there's no better way to build resentment and push white people (or those Asians for that matter!) towards the right, or worse, the far right.
So I hope that you include more people being pushed towards the right in that 'minor perturbation'. I hope you realize that's what's happening all over the Western World. What's scary is that the left is not accepting it (see impeachment 9.0).
Their unfair policies lead to those results, and then they start calling for violence after calling right-wingers nazis. Again, I look at the results and then infer the motivation.
I get it, you yearn for a fairer and better world and you think those policies are the way to go about it. But then you forfeit the right to complain about what they actually do in the real world when implemented.
The educational environment will improve if the student body is non-homogeneous. Universities are not supposed to be like factories, they're supposed to encourage rigorous and critical thinking. Given that context, diversity is a strength, as it nurtures creativity. If everybody thinks in the same way then breakthroughs become impossible.
As for things being "implemented", again, affirmative action is a quantitatively minor perturbation. The people who complain about its effects are mostly imagining things, and they'd be imagining grievances regardless.
