Let's concentrate on egalitarianism where it counts -- in making sure that all groups have a chance to lead happy and fulfilling lives regardless of their individual endowments. I've given a lot of thought to this problem. best,
Could you please provide evidence for your claim that different population groups are endowed with different sets of abilities and disabilities? I would also like to know how governments are supposed to apply this "scientific" knowledge to immigrants. Only individuals immigrate, not populations.

I know that you have a very high opinion of your own intelligence, but I have difficulty believing it when you make such dubious claims. I remember not so long ago that you made similarly unfounded claims about contemporary Europeans being "collectively responsible" for the holocaust and therefore morally obligated to solve the Israel/Palestinian problem....

Now what is your "ethnic group"? Are you absolutely sure that you are one of the chosen few?
