If our Left leaning parties had their way, any criticism of Affirmative action would be criminalized, any rational critique is immediately slammed as 'racist', 'Neo Nazi' and God knows what other adject..., oh YES, Fascist, we all know how much they love using the F word. 1.First things first, we must point out that, for all their pious speeches about how Israel keeps bringing up the Holocaust for deflect any criticism of its expansionist policies, they sure are very honest about NOT bringing up the F word. 2.I'd also advise these people to save up some money and buy a dictionary, opposing discrimination based on caste(caste not economic status) is not Fascist, neither is it cruel to point out that they alienate the section of society that this policy discriminate against, this is the very reason why the European Americans in the Southern United states have a strong dislike for Statist policies and lean more towards Libertarianism. 3.The excuse used by cultural Marxists is, of course, the lack of privileges for the underprivileged castes, these people should take a closer look at Govt colleges and other institutions implementing these feather brained shenanigans. The beneficiaries are not from the underprivileged, but from middle class families that have already benefited from this politically correct form of Casteism. 4.You don't solve one problem by creating a completely new one. I'm going to tell you something you probably have never heard of, you solve the problem of poor schooling by setting up a decent school system, not discrimination. How exactly is the schooling for poor students going to be improved by hiring under qualified teachers who can't even spell their own name properly? While we're on the same, how are the Doctors in Govt hospitals doing? Please tell me, how do they compare with Doctors in the public sector in other universal healthcare system? Also explain to me, how exactly is an inefficient bureaucracy( the least efficient in South Asia) which reserves seats for 2500 odd upper middle class candidates with a BC certificate a fair trade off for an otherwise fully functional meritocratic one like the one they have in Singapore, one that delivers, one that doesn't take 20 years to come up with a Universal education system. 5.How many posts that you think are reserved by the public sector? Did you know that the total no of jobs in the Govt don't exceed 30 million(this includes the Indian armed forces, and there are no reservations in the Indian armed forces)? So, if let's say, 50% of these jobs are reserved, that number of people that benefit from these policies would not exceed 15 million, I'm damn sure that the private sector employs more BCs than these guys. So, please answer this final question, Do you think Affirmative action for 15 million BCs(70 per cent of whom belong to middle class families) is worth the mentioned harmful side effects that we have to put up with? Don't wanna answer that question, fine, go ahead, keep hollering Fascist,Fascist,Fascist,Fascist, like a broken tape recorder.
