No. It’s impossible to live in a society without discrimination as those with extremist views need to be pushed aside and discriminated against so the rest of us can live in a peaceful society.

Many countries have good laws which are there to protect ‘others’. But the society does not always reflect the laws – many groups of people are discriminated against because of longstanding engraved stereotypes. Laws are essential societal but acceptance too.

Mahatima Gandhi once said, “be the change you wish to see in the world…” It all starts with you who wishes to see a world free of discrimination…stop discriminating against others, love and respect others, tell your friends, peers, and whoever is listening about how bad its feels to be discriminated against…it is the good in you that will gradually influence others to treat you without discrimination. One person at a time, you could gradually achieve a discriminatory free world. It all starts with you…

What a wonderful response thanks Jolly – do you have any ideas how we can speed the process up?

(Anonymous at July 31, 2018 8:12 am)

I think this boils down to building value systems…and the best place to start is among children…the values we instil in them at infancy largely influence their behaviors, attitudes, thinking, and so much more as they grow…if there is discrimination at home and a child grows up seeing this…it begins to appear right and normal behavior to them…so there must be a deliberate effort in that direction amongst children…besides you can take key messages against discrimination to schools and communities for example using MDD, children/youth safe spaces, etc…advocacy, Human Rights and litigation, etc. There certainly isn’t one magic bullet but a package of gradual and deliberate interventions…

I think discrimination is a construct created to keep ‘others’ – whoever they are – from participation. We can change this and start to perceive differences as assets and benefit from them

My view is that we need to understand the root cause for where discrimination comes from & address that. We need to engage with the people in power & get them onboard with change, and we need change the minds of those who think differently – exploring why they think differently and working to influence, understand and collaborate.

Discrimination is the act of comparing people and subjectively choosing favourite traits based on ones own morals & beliefs.
So the only real problem here is that people have been allowed to Inforce their own morals and beliefs onto other people. But as a society in 2018 we have a lot more forms of quick communication with social media acting like a social norm inforcement guiding people to a more accepting viewpoint – but to what extent is this really happening?? (With fake news/ anonymous cyber bullying & algorithms to give you more of the same info guided by your previous intrested clicks)

The only option is for everyone to collectively experience a dymention of the all inclusiveness of life. Once this is experiencly touched, once you know that you are not separate from anything else around you… What does it matter what morals you have: your not going to harm anything you experience as yourself unless you are unwell.
This is the power of Yoga / Buddhism = which both teach meditation to touch a all inclusive state of being. This is just one drop of spirituality that can save humanity from discrimination.

Agreed ish. Discrimination is the acting differently based on something different about the individual and this leading to ‘harm’. If I give or remove a benefit from a group because of a certain trait then the harm done is the issue. We can’t stop the thought that led to it

We can never have a society without discrimination because of the different stages of people in society. The young cannot be respected by the elders and the elders also think they are discriminated.

(Anonymous at July 26, 2018 12:24 pm)

When we kill them it brings discrimination

We can create a society without discrimination by starting with our education system, changing the way in which discrimination is the norm from the start. It needs to be pointed out as something that is unacceptable from the start not something we tolerate cause for alot of people there is nothing they can do about the discrimination they experience

Break down stereotypes in society, starting with family and government – two pronged attack! Have more laws passed to end discrimination. Involve the media to help educating people. Build on what different countries are doing well i.e. care of refugees in Uganda.

(edwin uganda at July 26, 2018 12:21 pm)

Yes and yes. But this will require enforcing- not only by the law but by the change in the hearts and minds of all citizens (the family part). If the law moves and the people do not follow – it won’t get very far. Young people hold the balance here as future leaders

(Marcus at July 26, 2018 12:35 pm)

Religions don’t discriminate but help one to live in a good living relation.

(Anonymous at July 24, 2018 10:35 am)

Religions are different like people are different. Some tell you to be free to others and some to try to convert them to your way of thinking. It is discrimination to try to change someone to believe as you do I think.

(Greg UK at July 26, 2018 8:50 am)

I agree. Discrimination is so ingrained in religion wether its homophobia, discrimination against other religions etc. Although not taught specifically as dogma (no religion teaches you to discriminate) the members of the religions tend to interpret the teaching in a way that causes them to discriminate.

(420Blazeit at July 26, 2018 10:41 am)

Other people are discriminated due to tribes. In case of that then equality before god has to be ensured and emphasised.

(Oboth uganda at July 26, 2018 12:13 pm)

By pushing them aside/removing their voice the ‘pushers’ become the extremists. #JSMill argues that unless harm was being committed then all voices should be heard – challenged and the truth will win through. This requires a good education of citizens to engage in the debate

Let’s name all of the discriminations we can think of together people. I will start – some discriminations are age, some are if you are males or females, some are the colour of your skin, some are if you are a beautiful person or not, some are if you are a married person or not, some are about your religion.

I don’t think we ever will…there will always be discrimination about one thing or another. If it’s not your sex, religion, sexuality, education background, race, weight, hair colour, height, disability, political beliefs, wealth etc then there will be something else people will discriminate against you for. EVERYONE does it whether they mean to or not. Yes we can create laws etc to protect people from the negative effects of discrimination but we will never be without some kind of discrimination in our lives because we all do it.
