Anti-discriminatory discrimination

Dalrymple receives an invitation to apply for a high position in the public administration. He writes:

I am too old for job applications, but if I had been younger I might have been tempted.

The employing organisation says that it is

non-discriminatory in its hiring policies with regard to race, religion, sexual orientation, disability, etc. This is a lie, for one of the criteria of employment is high intellectual ability, which the mentally disabled do not have.

The non-discriminatory employment policy

particularly welcomes applications from women, racial minorities, and people with disabilities.

This, Dalrymple points out,

can only be in order to discriminate in their favour, for otherwise such a welcoming policy is a cruel charade.

Be sure to follow the proper proce-ducres
