State minority "glasshouse"

The long and often discussed anti-discrimination law is an example of the state's strongly contradictory approach to various minorities and the disabled. A perfect example of the worst thing when politicians try to "do good."

For those who do not know me at the beginning of this article, I will specify that my father is a Roma, I grew up among the Roma. I know both those "abusers of the social system" and those who work or want to work and live "decently".

What will the anti-discrimination law cause? The anti-discrimination law has been and is often advocated by ensuring equal conditions for access to education and work for members of minorities and the disabled.

However, the problem with the anti-discrimination law is that neither allows it. On the contrary.

When I read the law, the first thing that occurred to me was that it was so vaguely worded I haven't read the law in a long time. It is thrown there without much connection and definition with the words ala "benefit", although "benefit" is de facto a subjective matter. It describes reasonable and disproportionate costs, although their amount is always individual and a general assessment of "proportionality" is often very difficult, if not impossible.

The anti-discrimination law brings a new element of uncertainty to job creation. What if I don't accept him and I go to court for discrimination, entrepreneurs call themselves. The outcome of any court proceedings is not important, as the court proceedings themselves are a cost. And their possible later payment always reflects as much as possible the accounting items, not the economic ones. As a result, the conduct itself is disadvantageous.

The result will be that in places where entrepreneurs are more likely to apply for a job as a member of a minority or a disabled person, new jobs will cease to be created. It won't matter if he's that rom whether handicapped expert or not. Due to the very existence of the anti-discrimination law, of course, they will pay for it all in the area, not just minorities. The result is that the anti-discrimination law will simply prevent the creation of new jobs.

Of course, they will pay you the most for it Gypsieswho are decent and want to work. The Anti-Discrimination Act is just another piece of the state's "glasshouse" around minorities and all - at first glance socially disadvantaged - groups of the population.

First, the state, through its anti-discrimination law, creates it in society realization that we are here and Theywhich need to be "protected" against discrimination. The basic principle that no one can be discriminated against on the basis of sex, skin color, state of health, etc. is already enshrined in the constitution. That enshrined in the constitution is an example of the fact that law and laws must be based on socially recognized moral norms, that laws and law cannot create them.

American Indians

Secondly, the problem with minorities, etc., already arises from the fact that it is the state is trying to protect. A similar problem was (and probably still is) with the American Indians. The US government has decided to give them generous social benefits as an excuse for the hardships of the past, giving them space to live naturally. The result was that unemployment among the Indians was huge, alcoholism and addiction to other drugs became widespread, children did not go to school, and Native American settlements were an open-air museum in the United States.

The situation went so far that one Indian community asked the US Senate to stop paying them for social assistance. The volunteers gave up those "benefits." Today, Indians from this community own a large IT company and have built a picturesque part of a suburb of a city in the United States. They are both socially and financially high. They say that the state stopped caring about them, it was the best thing that ever happened to them.

Areas such as Khanov, Genoa and others will be an anti-discrimination law suffer. And no, it will not be because the "Roma will give way" - on the contrary, the Roma will suffer the most, because the anti-discrimination law is what will prevent them from further development and growth.

How is it that "before the anti-discrimination law" the Roma areas "did not grow"? The answer is simple - because the state tried to protect them and help them. It is state paternalism that eliminates motivations for education, working inclusion and more. Those who really want to work and "live normally" are the exception that exists despite this paternalism.

The anti-discrimination law will not harm the "whites", as some say, but on the contrary - it will hurt those who it is supposed to protect the most. The state is building around minorities greenhousewhere society like the sun inside creates more and more stuffy. And they may not like being too stuffy inside - it can hurt them. Despite the fact that it deprives minorities of the strongest motivating element, the strongest element that encourages education and activity - competition.
