On reservations- again

This post exists so people can see this one, which I had created on Friday, but which Blogger, for some reason, moved where no-one would see it. Not the final lanswer, but an attempt to sort out my own thoughts.

I like the point made by "Anonymous" in the main post. As people from the SC/STs grow more affluent, they should increasingly compete on equal terms with the rest of the population. That means competing for seats in the "Open" quota. If they don't do that, they are simply competing with poorer members of their own caste. This, however, is an issue that should be brought up from within their own communities. However, I suspect that this will not happen- the "Robbers' cave" again- http://www.marginalrevolution.com/marginalrevolution/2006/06/the_apprentice_.html. God, I hate those words "community", "society"..They suggest a cow-like conformity and docility. Growl.
