I loved this debate between Saadna and Devil’s mind about Corporate discrimination as responce to my polls results of the Tazaj employment advertisment in the news paper where they requested explicitly veiled women to work for them.
Both Saadna and Devil’s mind made excellent argument.
Devil’s mind argues that discrimination is a basic human right. That the employer has the right to choose whomever he wants to work with him because he isn’t opening a charity. He also said that we do dicriminate in our daily life. Friendship and Love are based on discrimination.
Saadna argues that discrimination is a molestation for human rights. She says that we can’t compare discrimination of love and friendship to that at work-place.
While I still can’t form a solid stand, here is what I think of this so far:
I think that there is nothing absolute. Discrimination is accepted in places and isn’t accepted in others.
It does sound hypocritical, right? But I don’t think it is. Business associations discrimination is a glorified kind of discrimination than of individual ones.
While both is not right in my opinion, the effect of enterprise discrimination is much more damaging to a society than that at a personal level.
In addition to that, we can’t control personal choices, but we can try to empower equality between citizens.
On personal level, I dont think it is right to choose your friend/lover based on his race, sex, color, religion, or national origin. This depends on how mature the individual is, and how much perception he has in this world to understand that all of those attributes don’t make a person a worse or better of a friend/lover.
I would love to gather others opinions on this.
What do you think?
