This site is about many concepts you have probably heard about before. Prejudice, bigotry, discrimination and so on. Racism, sexism, homophobia and so on. Guilt by association, no true scotsman fallacy, and so on. Here they are all brought together into one single conceptual framework: The concept of categorism.

Racism, sexism and homophobia are the same thing, they are simply different foci of categorism. Racism, sexism and homophobia are not about different categories of people. Instead, they are about different categorizations of people. It is about something that people do to each other, not about something that people are.

In the current phase, the wiki is almost exclusively based on the thesis "Categorization of Human Beings versus the Universality of Human Rights". The thesis itself is available online as a free PDF. The wiki format has the advantage of breaking it down to giving each concept a page of it's own, thus making the thesis content far more accessible than one single wall of text.

In the future, this wiki is likely to expand beyond the scoop of the thesis.
