(There, MICK, I have three, count them THREE, new entries for you!)
I confess that I am disturbed by the American election. There is way too much interest in race and gender on both sides of the aisle. There must be some way to evaluate a candidate without subjecting candidates to a racist or sexist (whether straightforward or reverse) discrimination.
I propose the Burkha, for all candidates. Also, I would like to take the NAMES off the candidates. A name like "Barack Obama" says worlds, as does Hillary "Clinton."
Therefore I propose that all candidates must remain in a Burkha throughout the election season, and go only by a number. In addition, I humbly submit that voices should be disguised by a robot voice, so that every thing that a candidate says, sounds exactly like everything every other candidate says. Only the ideology, or the intellectual positions, would therefore be in play. There is way too much emphasis on how candidates look. And way too much emphasis on how some candidates sound.
I would like also all members of our society to dress in Burkhas, irrespective of gender (the Taliban's attempt to disguise all males behind a heavy beard doesn't go FAR enough). Also, we should just have numbers instead of names. And the numbers should never be prime numbers, or people would start to fight over them, and to talk about how their number is a "prime" number and mine, for example, is not. Also, the robot voice should be in effect for one and all, even within the confines of one's home. There should be NO sense that an individual has ANY identity whatsoever, aside from their number (numbers should begin in the trillions, and never be primes, but other than that, numbers that are seen to be special for any reason should be taken out of circulation). I think that in this way true equality can be reached. And that, after all, is the American way.
