Over at Bonfiire, I’m weighing in on how to undermine race classification and restore social harmony.
The real problem is that there (still) is a monopoly on race classification, whereby everyone in the country is forced to give objective and enduring status to something that should be subjective and fluid.
In the article, I suggest that we refrain from offering our cooperation in the state’s objectionable race classification system – the principles of which Étienne de La Boétie (1530-1563) formulated in The Politics of Obedience – the Discourse of Voluntary Servitude:
Resolve to serve no more, and you are at once freed. I do not ask that you place hands upon the tyrant to topple him over, but simply that you support him no longer; then you will behold him, like a great Colossus whose pedestal has been pulled away, fall of his own weight and break into pieces.
And to paraphrase Johannes Kerkorrel: “Sit dit af, sit dit sommer sélf af.”
