The Deceitful Equivocation Of Worth With Moral Worth Is A Quicksand Fundament Of The Racial Quota Regimes
When some are, for example, handicapped or retarded, this affects their worth in high degree, but need not affect their moral worth. Genetic retardation in large groups, makes it very easy for the power-greedy to exploit that equivocation of worth and moral worth. It can be made to sound as if moral worth were meant, in order to get the disadvantaged riled, but especially to smear, by way of that equivocation. Those who speak of differences in worth between individuals and groups, are smeared as if they were saying that moral worth could be inherited genetically. This smearing is done, because there is no rational argument for treating everyone as equal in worth, and power can be won by pushing for equalization of the consequences of unequal worth.
