This is a secular post predominantly, and it only proves to me that if one rejects the Lord, only Satan’s order is available…
The military used to be known for their legal discrimination in maintaining a strong and cohesive force. Discrimination used properly is a force multiplier, however bigotry cannot be tolerated as it is corrosive to good order and discipline. So who will judge the just or unjust authority figures?
Merit promotion policies took root during the Johnson Administration, an offshoot of Americas Civil Rights. The social engineers in “the marketplace” started enforcing quotas for blacks and other minority groups, with the theory this would ensure Equal Opportunity, in the otherwise dominated white male workforce.
Somehow this has morphed into “the white man is the oppressor” within progressive academic circles.
Should not a man (or women) be judged on the “content of their character’, as coined by the Civil Rights greatest leader, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.? Everyone I have ever known agrees with this assertion, yet regulating this principle within the “great society” of diverse humanity seems to have predominantly failed.
Character Assassins within a Orwellian type of society, now seems to dominate the landscape instead of the ideals once envisioned. And a state of denial by politicians that regulating (White) society has been ineffective, even with over 50 years of accommodations, and a Black President only seems to have exacerbated the issues, and caused greater pain and resentments for all involved.
