I just caught a snippet of Come Dine With Me. The topic of conversation turned to, ‘If you were Dictator for a day, what would you do?’ A lady replied, ‘I’d ban isms – sexism, racism, ageism.’ All very laudable, blaming people for characteristics they can’t control is illogical as well as bigoted.
But how would she go about this? She’d make everyone blind – presumably so we can’t tell each other apart. And in case that’s not enough – say you can distinguish a woman from her higher voice – she’d make everyone deaf as well.
So her simple way to make the world a better place – make everyone blind and deaf! I sometimes wonder whether giving everyone the vote was such a good move.
