White Supremacists and the Taliban
White supremacism has become more and more strident in recent years, and the problem is not unique to America. We are seeing the same going on in Russia, in Western Europe, and in other offshoots of Western civilization. It is time that the white supremacists' claims be addressed, and their character exposed.
The foremost claim of the white supremacists is that the white people have led the way and are for that reason superior. This claim is then used by them to claim that they are superior, and as such have the right to dictate life for other white people. There is a big problem with their claims, and it is as follows: Most of the white people who actually contributed to the well-being and accomplishment of the white people were nothing like white supremacists. And if it had been up to the white supremacists, the white race would have never accomplished anything at all.
Europe came to the forefront of the world in 18th and 19th centuries as a result of science and industrialization. Neither of these endeavors would have been possible had the white supremacists been in charge. First of all, white supremacists hate science and want to kill the scientists, whom they see as Jews or as liberal or as godless or as New World Order or as politically correct. As for industry, the white supremacists' contribution to it is less than that of Chinese sweatshop laborers and Mexican maquiladora workers. Which means that they have no business claiming credit for the work of scientists, industrialists or laborers that have actually contributed to the Western Civilization, and that the accomplishments of Western civilization do not belong to them and are not theirs to appropriate.
And if the white supremacists had met in person most of the people who contributed meaningfully to Western Civilization, they would have murdered them, as they are well intent to murder anyone who has it within themselves to contribute meaningfully to Western Civilization now.
The white supremacists then go on and claim that they are protecting "culture" or "civilization." I ask a question of white supremacists: What do you know about culture? Read many great books, understand much great art, have in-depth understanding of much poetry and philosophy? A schoolkid in Kenya knows more about such things than does your average white supremacists. And a schoolkid in Kenya is a much prouder manifestation of Western civilization than all of the world's white supremacists taken together.
These are the same people that used to beat up their classmates for studying at school. These are the same people that strangle their wives to death if they read books or view art or study philosophy or metaphysics. These are the same people that burn to death someone, white black or Asian, who produces anything that adds to the culture now. So I ask again, What do you know about culture or civilization and how dare you be claiming to protect the things you know nothing about?
Freedom is choice - meaningful choice over one's life and one's destiny. The more choice, the more freedom; the less choice, the less freedom. Nobody chooses their ethnicity or their race. Which means that, the more people are made to identify with race or ethnicity, the more they are made to identify with the unchosen, the less the amount of choice in their lives and the less their freedom.
The less their freedom, the less they tolerate freedom in others, the worse it is for everyone.
It is the same exact down-grading dynamic as is led by the Taliban. These, too, think that they are protecting their culture and their civilization as they make it their first policy to destroy anyone who has it within them to contribute meaningfully to either. In both cases the worst elements in the group take credit for the work of their betters and use this appropriation of credit to subject others in the group to totalitarian control. And in both cases, the result is the worst possible: Totalitarianism, by the worst in each group, over the rest of the group, when they have created none of the work to which they lay credit and which they would not have tolerated to come about had they been in control when it was done.
The result: Destruction of freedom; imposition of totalitarianism; sabotage of all meaningful contributions; and hideous abuses, by the worst in the group, over all who have the misfortune of sharing the race or the ethnicity with them.
It is time for the people of all ethnicities and cultures to throw off the yoke of the worst within these ethnicities and cultures and to emerge as free citizens working with other free citizens to create a better future for the world. It is time that unchosen factors be minimized and chosen factors maximized, resulting in real freedom. It is time that credit be given where it is due and denied appropriation by the worst in humanity who are responsible for none of the achievements to which they lay credit, and which appropriation they then use to bludgeon everyone else into being their slaves. And it is time that these usurpers be seen for what they are and forever denied ability to oppress and enslave the citizens of the free world.
