You're responding to what Ringo said in Message 63 and dwise1 in Message 53, which I don't think you understood.
It would be helpful if you could quote what you're responding to. Let us know if you'd like the quoting codes explained.

It become clear when one pays attention and is not just looking for attack points, although I do not mind those if it leads to thought.
Let me recap.
The right is shooting itself in the foot by setting up a system that will have more non-whites helped along than whites.
I have been calling that the whites giving restitution to non-whites, as it will cost all whites a lot of cash.

When did I say we could survive without competing?
Back in Message 63 I said that we can not predict what "fittest" will mean in the future. Therefore, we can not predict what area of competition will make us "fitter".

Are right wingers more moral and richer than the left?
Richer? Often yes.
More moral? Usually no. It's hard to get rich by being moral.

The conservative right are pushing a restitution agenda, indirectly, while the liberal left wingers want to maintain the status quo.
That statement makes no sense. Try again.

Your OP seems to be an attack point with little or no thought behind it.

The right tends to have polices that are beneficial to the rich and detrimental to society as a whole. All you're saying is that the right is the right.

So, are you against restitutuion?

It's weird, he/she seems to have right and left philosophies switched. It sounds like trumpspeak (accusing your enemies of doing crimes, behavior, etc. that you are actually committing) with Star Wars reverse sentence structure and incoherence thrown in.

Their thinking was pretty clear. I think if you reread those messages, Message 53 and Message 63, you'll see where you went wrong pretty easily. But if after doing that you still can't see it just let me know and I'll attempt to explain.
You're still not quoting anything. Would you like some help with the quote codes?

There is nothing veiled when speaking of the levels of the fittest, when doing so always shows the levels of the least fit.
So when you suggested giving power to "our fittest and brightest," the reference to eugenics wasn't veiled?

I am Canadian.
As a country, we never thought that some of us were created to be beneath others and of lower worth.
We never embraced slavery the way right wing Americans and others of low moral intelligence still do.
Generally speaking, yes, I think the old colonial powers owe their victims much.

Why?
No one is quoting anything anyway.

Did I mention the fittest of us or the least fit?
How anyone gets eugenics out of my words, when I am talking of the fittest, shows the garbage mental biases and attitudes that posting produces in some.

By "no one" you can only mean yourself, because almost everyone but you is usually quoting what they're replying to.
Would you like some help with the quote codes?

I think maybe you don't know what eugenics means. When someone starts saying things like giving power to the fittest and brightest, eugenics usually isn't far behind.
