(See what happens when we get bill in the game too???)
Equivocation of equality as categorical membership with qualitative assessment ( that being the notion that all are equally valuable), results in an obscurity of ingroup distinction i.e. leads to the notion of open borders and franchise for all.
We are equally members of the ingroup (categorical membership) or equally not (not a member of the ingroup)… conflation of “all men are created equally before god” with categorical membership obscures ingroup criteria and disarms any categorical assessment (that dude over in Nigeria was “created equal before god” and thus must be part of our group).
this obscures calculation of membership benefit. specifically this stands as an example of creating AMBIGUITY. What is it that our group does? DISAMBIGUATE.
Isonomy and categorical membership as the foundation for the notion of equally DISAMBIGUATES allowing for calculation of membership benefit and policing.
Qualitative assessment as the foundation for the notion of equality affords obscurity in deciding membership benefit and policing…. which is why, after 100 years of the romantic notions (romantic r@pe of enlightenment ideas) we now have outgroups being extended ingroup benefit while skirting ingroup accountability.
Truth is, notions such as equality and tolerance, in their initial application, remain critical to creating the world we would like see manifest.
However, romantic age manipulations of these terms paved the way for the left to use our innovations against us, and the further regions of the right to rejects core mechanisms of what made the west great.
Gotta admit – our enemies (broadly speaking – platonists) are fucking brilliant, which is why we must be more vigilant.
