Should being a member of a group diqualify a person for a position
Debate Rounds (3)
Isn't it, when allowing persons who have belonged, to and in some cases represented certain organizations, to hold certain positions in government who's decisions effects the lives of all citizens similar to handing a box of matches to a known arsonist and expecting that he wouldn't use them to set fires.

The question asked ,"Should being a member of a group disqualify a person for a position." I remember an old -time radio show which started out asking the question,
" who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men....." While we can't possibly know what evils lurk in the hearts of men we can rest assured that if some person had been a member of a group with certain exclusive objectives that if that person were later on, granted a position weighting the correctness of that groups objectives after leaving that group that they could be unbias in their opinions.
The statue in front of the Supreme Court building is of a statue of a lady wearing a blind fold... Holding a scale .."The scales that she holds and the ....blindfold represent .....the impartiality with which justice is served"
The statue representing justice to all that stands before the Supreme Court building may represent the concept that the unbiased renderings of justice to all will be given by the Supreme Court justices but to allow Justices to decide cases who's motivations are suspect doesn't offer assurance to anyone that the justice's decisions would be impartial to all. Justice delivered by such Supreme Court justices who have belonged to or represented certain groups, doesn't do much for the concept that the justice decisions will be Impartial.
