i'm an SF and my emotional and physical reactions towards people are usually determined by how beautiful and gentle the person is and the internal sensations i have from them (although i'm misanthropic at times). i do make or subscribe to generalizations sometimes and i'm imprecise in expression, but i just enjoy categorizing everything sometimes. i did make racist comments to my friend just to try to impress him to make relations with him better, to please him. i made racist comments to someone just because i wanted to fight him.
i never understood the mass arab hysteria back in 2001 through today; i never thought terrorist=arab.
i don't really think of myself as belonging to any group but rather as a stupid, ugly person really (i've never had much of a sense of group identity).
so anyway, why don't we think of all the ways in which aristocracy and democracy is understood/misunderstood and where each applies when it may not be obvious?
i've always been more democratic than aristocratic as i wasn't really able to completely conclude on my own what group a person belonged to anyway.
