Don't Assume

Don't Assume That They're Persons
Don’t Assume That They’re Persons

Truly! Assumptions based upon gross physical characteristics are extremely scientifically flawed, foolish, and quite dangerous. Most of Americans’ ongoing issues are the direct result of assuming that those sorts that constantly rant, rail, and riot against anything and everything that is America are persons just because, to a large extent, they look like us.

After all, we have no codified standard for being truly human. We certainly have no standardized test to determine whether an individual creature in our form is in fact human, e.g., Frank Herbert’s “Gom Jabbar Test of Humanity.” We’re operating off of assumptions and social pressures that change periodically based upon prevailing media opinions and who won what war.

So, don’t assume. Test, verify, and act accordingly. 👿
