Subject: M-I: Age-ism, sexism, racism

Justin Schwartz,

You consider that "age-ism" trivializes "sexism" and racism.

I know of alomost no-one who takes "sexism" seriously, or who is
not intimidated into parrotting the correct line (very like Israel);
but the cause of social justice for the real "despised minority"
has suffered immensely from this juxtaposition.

Capital is indeed the objective enemy, but its dialectical
reflection, subjectively, is egoism, or in its social form, chauvinism.
Race adn gender are real, as are all the postmodern "identities"...
vive la difference...but bullies and bitches are the ignancy.
