The sudden interest about genetic ancestry in America has spawned some policymakers to create arguments which attempt to justify social differences between us.
Such habits of casual readers and even professional researchers form a fringe community among political advisers who can be called "accidental racists."
Unfortunately, these habits, when practiced in the daily context of public departments and lobby divisions, generate an invisible framework of ideological obstacles that preserve European values despite an increasingly multicultural voting base.
White academics must guard against the same sorts of hyper-logical policy paradigms which led previous generations of scientific advisers astray.
Many times, Capitalism and Socialism have taken turns playing the role of villain in global societies. On each occasion, the issue has been either too much instrumentalism, when arbitrary measures of finance define the success of its policies, or too much utilitarianism, when formerly biological notions of survival suddenly depend upon the treatment of individuals like mathematical variables.
American capitalists historically were slave drivers, and Nazi socialists historically were genocidal executioners.
In each of these cases, common confusion about categories of genetic distinction within the population allowed academics accidentally to approve policies of discrimination with deadly consequences.
The casual interest of everyday Americans in their genetic self-identification, although it may be seen to contribute in some small way to our recent surge of political tribalism, is no problem at all when compared to the larger trend of medical insurers who charge impossible premiums for preexisting conditions.
If it proves to be true that treatments are beginning to skew toward curing the medical disadvantages of the genetic people with more financial power, and if it continues to be true that the medical disadvantages of other genetic peoples are considered too costly to cover, not profitable enough to research, then our healthcare system accidentally will be committing institutional genocide.
Policymakers and their advisers, including voters, must guard against exclusively mathematical definitions of life. Animate tissues, living things, display evidence of choice not only at a social level but also at a cellular level, such that education and environment, including nutritional access, continue to be the primary determinants of survival for our species.
In an attempt to bridge the growing distance between our political tribes, both sides must make logical concessions on this issue.
Evangelicals on the Right must concede, especially if they display any interest in their own genetic ancestry, that Earth and its organisms are billions of years old. Commercial testing agencies must disclose that our closest genetic relatives are primates.
Academics on the Left must concede, especially if they argue the problem of climate change, that life is connected by an energetic field of subatomic communication, transcending time and space, linking all organisms on Earth, possessing simply preternatural qualities which historically have been documented by global scriptures in divine terms.
