PREJUDICES

Third World Country has a good post on The Benefits of Prejudice.
Prejudice can be beneficial. Approaching all pans on a stove or dishes in a microwave as though they were hot; all guns as though they were loaded; all Mass Media Podpeople, politicians and Academia Nut Fruitcakes as though they were pathological liars: these and other prejudicial positions can prevent a lot of pain and injury.

Prejudice is simply a way of classifying and understanding the world around us.
Go read the whole post.

    Ya know, I labored hard to avoid saying in that post that what most people call "prejudice" nowadays used to go under the term "common sense"...
