you are right. I believe in discriminating in individuals. for example the Christian baker we disputed about before. (I do not mean to bring that back up the ethics, but it is an on hand example I have). if a customer is unruly they can definitely be banned, but that doesn't extend to similar people no matter how much of a pattern you see. (at least in light of numerous contrary examples, if it's really 100% savages yeah actions should be taken.)

This judging on individual basis can get tricky when international relations, but at least within a political unit, *generalized* discrimination is a negative.

*specific* discrimination I shall concede, but is that more of a survival issue for the individual rather than for society?

I understand treating people with respect, but we should still discriminate. When I mean discriminate, I don't mean like kicking black people out of places and stuff.

Do you not discriminate between enemies and friends? Between people who share your beliefs and those who don't?

discriminating (telling the difference between) poisonous vs nutritious food, yes is necessary.

discriminating between people is not and has only weakened us.

What type of friend won't ever personally meet you or even consider they might die fighting to protect you, if necessary?
What type of friend doesn't understand the difference between friends, and excellent neighbors?

Thereal, do you consider me a friend?

In life, you have to discriminate to survive.

Definition of Discrimination:
Recognition and understanding of the difference between one thing and another.

If we weren't able to tell the difference between one thing and another, we wouldn't be able to survive.
