"To ban discrimination is to ban freedom of thought and freedom of association. Everyone in a free society should have the right to think whatever he wants to think about anyone else and to choose to associate or not associate, in both personal or business relationships, with anyone on the basis of those thoughts. His thoughts may be erroneous, illogical, irrational, or unreasonable, his opinions may be based on stereotypes, prejudice, bigotry, or racism—but in a free society everyone is entitled to his own thoughts and opinions."

Walter E. Williams - Equality in Discipline →
If schools cannot justify differentials in rates of punishment by race or ethnic group, they will face the loss of federal funds and be forced to undertake costly diversity training. The nation’s educators can avoid sanctions by adopting a racial quota system for student discipline.

For example, by Ukrainian tradition I should have inherited a traditional costume and other embroidered garments through the maternal line. What happened was that my maternal grandmother’s family had all their self-embroidered clothing and footwear, including prized woollen shawls, taken away by Communists. They lived in a village in the Kyiv region and were considered wealthy,explaining this taking of possessions. The most bitter thing was that later on when my grandmother was an adolescent she saw these woollen shawls being worn by the wives of Soviet authorities at a local meeting. The point was to take away possessions so everyone would be equal, but in reality the people in authority had simply used the opportunity to claim what was better of what they had looted for themselves. This is pretty much what always happens whenever leftist notions of ‘equality’ are implemented in any society.
"If the state wishes to spend more it can do so only by borrowing your savings or by taxing you more. It is no good thinking that someone else will pay- that “someone else” is you. There is no such thing as public money; there is only taxpayer’s money."
