Political Correctness and Neo-Nazis
For a long time political correctness has been used to confront things such as neo-Nazism. However much is wrong with political correctness, and one should not have to go to one fascist ideology in order to fight another fascist ideology. Many of the ways to screen out Nazism ("they were absolutist," "Hitler had a personality disorder" and further along the same line) would attack many things that are not Nazism and that are not destructive. Instead Nazism and similar racist ideologies can be screened out through simple rationality.
The main core claim of Nazism is that the white people are the superior race. This claim does not pass the muster of history. For 1,000 that were the Dark Ages, the white man was at the bottom of the world and could not hold his head up to China, India, Mesoamerica, the Baghdad Caliphate or Timbuktu.
The white people did not get ahead through superior genetics. They got ahead through superior methodology. They got ahead through science, technology and economics, starting during Renaissance and growing full-speed in 18th and 19th centuries. Now that non-white places such as China, India and previously Japan, adopt similar methodology, they are fast catching up. Even Africa - according to Nazis the bottom of the ladder - is booming now. What this means is that the superior outcome comes from the methods used, not from the gene pool; and the more non-white people use workable methods the more they will catch up with the West.
Another major Nazi claim is that the Jews are evil. In fact, the Western civilization owes vastly to the Jews, and the Jews have contributed by far the most of all populations per unit of population. That also vastly exceeds the per unit of population contribution of Anglo- Saxons. There are maybe 400 million of people who are ethnically or culturally Anglo-Saxon, and about 15 million Jews. And yet the number of Nobel prizes won by Jewish people is comparable to the number of Nobel prizes won by the Germans and the English combined.
The neo-Nazis also claim that they are a superior race by nature. I have the news for them: There is no such thing in nature as a superior race. Nature contains a vast variety of lifeforms, all of them having different ways of doing things and all of them co-existing without waging wars of extermination upon one another. And if nature is wise enough to practice tolerance and diversity, then surely man - supposedly the pinnacle of evolution - should be wise enough to do the same thing.
The problem with racist ideologies is not that they are politically incorrect; it is that they are factually incorrect. And it is by meeting them at the factual level that they can actually be rendered extinct as they fully deserve to be.
