Cathy Reisenwitz was on Voluntary Virtues the first hour to discuss gender, race, individualism, and much more. It turned into a discussion about whether we should focus on race or not.
-Some take the individualistic approach in which they want to live free from past mind barriers (racism) and just seeing everyone as individuals instead of groups or niches… not wanting to play the “race game” and treating people as individuals without labels,… being the change they want to see in the world. They try to limit use of devise terminology that creates and perpetuates the division in the first place.
-Some take the pluralistic approach of using racial and gender based terminology that would be required to point out the infringements of freedom that racism has led to, in order to pull in people who still think in terms of these groups and niches, into the freedom “movement”.
(I hope I adequately represented both sides.)
Neither side denied race nor racism existed,… just a discussion on how to end racism from a group of voluntaryists who understand that all humans should be equal under non-aggression and property rights. Good discussion…
