We live in a semifree capitalist society today. As stated in the Constitution, every American has these rights: life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. There is a huge philosophical discussion that I could go into about that statement alone, but I will refrain. Those rights are all that we need as free citizens in a government that has limitations (the Bill of Rights). There are a few things that could be done to lessen prejudice in America today. One of the first things I would suggest we do is to teach all the youth to never judge someone based on the group they are associated with, but to only judge them based on their productive ability. This would have a domino effect: kids will push each other in school from a very young age (which is the most important time) to work to their highest ability. This would, in turn, generate smarter kids from the educational system: kids that try. Since we live in a capitalist society, everybody relatively has the same chance – when going to a job, you are hired on your ability. If the education system was graduating the majority of kids that were extremely smart, this would raise the competition to get a job. This would mean that jobs suddenly become harder to get, and only the highly qualified would be getting all the jobs. Once every industry is saturated with geniuses, America’s production and economy will go straight to the top. We will propel higher than any civilization in history (we already have, back in the 1950’s). This could all happen if each individual taught their children that they need not judge on skin color, clothes, or social status, but judge on productive ability.
