How to Solve Other Groups' Problems

Let's look at some of the problems of various groups.




helping individuals



Cases:


Women's rights:

The case has been made that women are treated poorly and should be given rights equal to those of men. However, men as a class have suffered and made sacrifices up to and including loss of life multiple times throughout history to safeguard society, science, technology, engineering, art, justice, and especially, women. The contributions in these areas by women have been practically negligible by comparison, however they were given equal rights on humanitarian, moral and ethical grounds. Even in the current Ukrainian-Russian War, women are allowed to leave the country and not do an equal share of suffering, but men of all ages are mandated to be available to serve the military.


Because of the ongoing coddling of charity and the law, the unintended consequence has been that women have become grossly irresponsible. Now women are given special privileges in the forms of reservations in education system, private businesses, health care, etc. If one reasons with women having these privileges they think it is very natural to have them and will be offended if the notion is presented that they have not been earned. This has caused a downward spiral of strong women getting weaker and simply taking advantage of the system even as it strains toward collapse.

This is not to say that women have never been exploited, but overcompensation and an absence of recognition that men are also exploited in the modern world, fails to adequately balance the equation of rights and responsibilities between the sexes.


Indian caste system:

For a look at the caste system, refer to that section of the essay "Law Makes People Irresponsible", which is linked in the description to this video.


One can see that solutions offered by outside groups or society in general can generate huge blowback which can prove detrimental to society.


Racism:

Whether it is antisemitism, or discrimination by color, or any kind of racism at all, once an outside group tries to solve problems of another group, then the previously troubled group simply takes advantage of the largesse of society on flimsy moral and ethical grounds, rather than using their new found freedom to participate in and contribute to society at large.


Refugee and Immigration Issues:

Current socioeconomic policies in various European countries have made provision to accept refugees from predominantly Islamic countries on humanitarian grounds. However, these Islamic groups have widely divergent views of reality from those of their host countries, and do not assimilate. They maintain the entire culture of the land they left, with no desire to become, say, English or a French, and what could be their new home, with a new beginning, is simply a free opportunity to exploit a new region, committing crimes because “that’s the way we do it back home”. Even though welcomed into the countries under a humanitarian rationale by governments of Europe, those governments' hidden, cynical purpose was mainly to increase the tax base for their system’s own selfish needs. So really it is not truly humanitarian grounds alone which has allowed middle eastern peoples into the country, but simply to tax their labor.

It is disadvantageous both to the host people of European countries and also to the refugees. As local people, lifelong citizens, have to share their schools, hospitals and other services with others who did not contribute to the system, their contributions to their own future are diluted, and muslims and other minorities who have moved to these European countries are being taken advantage of to provide taxes for the system. And by doing this, the system actively tends to eradicate their own host culture.


Solution:

As one can see based on the above cases, responsibility and fairness cannot be achieved by charity. Whoever proposes to solve another group’s problems in reality is taking advantage of that other group, immediately or eventually. And over time the groups which got the benefits of this charity become increasingly irresponsible.

Each troubled group has to become aware as to what their own failings are, and most of the time powerful people within their same group are subtly taking advantage of them. Call it terrorism, feminism, anti-semitism, racism, etc., all are prey to the same forms of exploitation with different names.

It is natural for animals to take advantage of their surrounding environment. Humans are no different. Humans raise farm animals for their consumption because farm animals do not have same moral standing as humans. So it is between groups of people. There is nothing wrong with other peoples having their own sovereignty and their own standards, as it's very natural. If one group, whether identified by race, religion, gender, social hierarchy, etc. is being taken advantage of by another, the only way they can rise above the exploitation is to become more powerful by organization with other members of their group, by invention, or by offering as a trade their labor or other resources, and compete against the groups seeking to take advantage of them. In this way disadvantaged groups will either perish or will rise. Then and only then, can the much desired fairness, respect, and responsibility be achieved among groups.

Solving collectively with one-size-fits-all solutions always has negative affects however, and is never as useful and meaningful as helping individually. Generally so called leaders or heroes want to earn name recognition and fame, resorting to virtue signaling before these so-called disadvantaged groups by promoting endless regulations, like minimum wages, reservations and set-asides, unions, provisions for fatherless families, etc. which actually cripple the society even further as the exploited groups tend to develop a learned helplessness, and deems that it's their right to demand the state give them privileges whether they work or not. Instead, helping people individually, people with whom one is connected, has a greater positive affect than any attempt at solving problems collectively. In this way individual people get far more capable, are more likely to feel a responsibility toward their community and will be able in turn to help others.


To summarize: the best way to solve another group’s problems is not to solve another group’s problems, collectively, with enforced regulations and policies and rules and unions, but rather to help individual people with whom one associates.
