Now people want to give anti-discrimination laws to the long term unemployed. While I can sympathize with them, making yet another anti-dicrimination law is not the direction that we want to go.
First of all this is mainly a boon to the lawyers. We already have too many parasitic elements in our economy, and the lawyers don´t need to be given more food to make hay with. Secondly, if we continue with these laws, employers will not be able to distinguish between more attractive or less attractive employees. A total anti-discrimination law would require that people be hired by lottery, since any differences between them could be labeled as being “discriminatory”.
