Social engineering is damaging to sport and society


There is seldom a week that passes where we dont hear some organisation calling for more diversity in society , be it in sports or politics or civil service etc .  

What these organisations do is look at groups in society in terms of peoples physical and sexual attributes such as skin colour , gender , sexual orientation etc with the intent of changing those groups to represent an equal balance of those attributes . 

For example , lets say there is a football team with 11 players and it so happens that those players are of the one skin colour  , the rule of Diversity says that this is wrong and the team must be changed to have an equal number of other skin colours . Indeed , People may remember comments by Brian Kerr a while ago when he said that the Irish Soccer team was "too white" . 

lets think about this for a second 

Your a football manager and you are tasked with going to games and picking players for your team . The criteria you are using is their skills and talent and Nothing more . At the end of the day you have picked all your players but wait , it so happens that the players you picked are of the one skin colour . The rule of diversity says that you should have considered skin colour as a criteria and you must change the team accordingly . 

After you have changed your team , the requirement then is to look at other characteristics such as the players sexual orientation , are they all straight , have you included gay or transgender players on your team , if not , go back to drawing board and start all over . 

What has this got to do with sport  ? the answer is absolutely nothing , whether a player is black , white , purple or green or whether a player is straight or gay or whatever ,  its irrelevant as those attributes are not going to improve the players skills level or abilities , but yet , the rule of diversity says you must consider it .

And that is how social engineering works  . Its about organising society based on peoples attributes such as skin colour , gender , sexual orientation etc rather than peoples merits and abilities . It is not a road any Country should go down but sadly in Ireland and all accross the western hemisphere , its now a pivotal part of government policy .

just emailed my local councillors in South Dublin about this asking them to justify the spending given the homeless crisis and for their evidence to support the claim that lgbt people need rainbow crossings in order to feel supported . who says they dont already feel supported without the rainbow crossings , and what about support for homeless these are all questions we need to put to our councillors , treat everyone the same means no special treatment for one sexuality over another or no p

its shocking to think that a homeless person could be housed for 2 years with the money spent on a single Rainbow crossing .

a discussion on all of these issues is long overdue . a mature conversation needs to happen . we used to have good debates in Ireland up to about 20 years ago , until debating an issue became a crime almost , a thought crime anyway.
