—“So any criticism leveled at another group only serves to illuminate our own failure to perform successfully in intra-group competition.”— Bill Joslin
( CD: Or as I have been saying “The problem is in the mirror.”)
by Bill Joslin
Group Identity, being a common-property shared by group members, when redefined by another group (for example: whiteness, or inferior races) commits a vandalous act – damages that property.
To maintain a condition of boycott, those under attack must abandon the property to the vandals (thieves) – if not, then the only alternative is to double-down to defend it – which then devolves into retaliatory vandalism… (at least unless escalated to political, economic, or military conflict.)
So the stance I’ve heard you take on racism, which has a short list of justifications [we have crap people in our group also; any group can advance; etc.] I think has a deeper operational and moral footing”
i.e. reciprocity between groups, as it pertains to identity, isn’t possible – to go there violates our own law of reciprocity.
And near-group breeding and cooperation might present the limit at which intra-group reciprocity can occur within domains of identity – some common ground- some exchange which doesn’t result in erosion of damages to identity.
So any criticism leveled at another group only illuminates our own failure to perform within intra-group competition.
Focussing on fixing our failures preserves integrity to natural law which is the basis of out identity… And prevents retaliation spirals and intertemporal transfer of costs for breaking our law)
Was that coherent?

(CD: Yes, bill that was about as coherent as it can be stated. 😉 )
