THE MIND OF DISCRIMINATION
Posted on Aug.25.2011 @ 02:31PM EDT by chontri

The mind of discrimination sees The young one is young, the old one is old, and young versus old.
The female one is female, the male one is male, and female versus male.
The black one is black, the white one is white, and black versus white.
The small one is small, the big one is big, and small versus big.
The single one is single, the multiple one is multiple, and single versus multiple (or one versus many).
The unique one is unique, the common one is common, and unique versus common.
The false one is false, the true one is true, and false versus.
The wrong one is wrong, the right one is right, and wrong versus right.
The bad one is bad, the good one is good, and bad versus good.
The ugly one is ugly, the beautiful one is beautiful, and ugly versus beautiful.
The pleasant one is pleasant, the unpleasant one is unpleasant, and pleasant versus unpleasant.
The poor one is poor, the rich one is rich, and poor versus rich.
The loser is lost, the winner is gaining, and loss versus gain.
And it makes preferences with love or hate; then problems, dilemmas,
fightings, killings, rapings, troubles, sadness, unhappiness, suffering, blames,...follow.
