When I was a ten-year-old in Cuba, I already understood that Latin American countries had lotteries because it was the only chance that the average person had to get ahead.
Blacks weere mixed with whites there because, from the point of view of those who owned everything, all peasans were equal, just as the Queen of England tday says that any of her hundreds of millions of Commonwealth former subjects has the right to move to England, even if they do elbow out the white peasants.
Now we have state lotteries, the super-rich in charge, and everybody who is not rich is equal to everybody else. We live in Batista’s Cuba. To the very rich, all those peasants are the same. The LAST people who object to this attitude on race are the Marxists.
Leftism and respectable conservatism agree that all peasants are equal. So do today’s leftists. And we have also gone Latin American on assimilation.
Don’t worry. Batista’s Cuba will be replaced with a rightist or leftist form of Castro’s. Cuba rumbled for decades, then Batista’s Cuba collapsed in a matter of hours.
To others, the suppression and rumbling dissatisfaction shows that the System cannot be beaten. I watched the Soviet Empire go. I watched Batista go. I watched Perot come within a hair’s breadth of being elected president, certifiable though he was.
Nobody thinks the coming election will make any difference. Politics has ceased to have meaning, but the discontent is palpable. It just has nowhere to go.
I must have been raised in a different world, because all this strikes everybody ELSE, from racial defeatists to respectable conservatives, as STABILITY.
And remember, when the collapse of Batista came, Cuba went from fascist to Communist, ALL THE WAY. Russia went from Communist to fascist. If things are the way I see them, the safe, moderate position today will put you in enormous danger in the future.
You may have to EXPLAIN your “anti-racism:”
AFRICA FOR THE AFRICANS, ASIA FOR THE ASIANS, WHITE CoUNTRIES FOR EVERYBODY!
” It is said that there is this RACE problem. They say this RACE problem will be solved when the third world pours into EVERY white country and ONLY into white countries.”
“The Netherlands and Belgium are as crowded as Japan or Taiwan, but nobody says Japan or Taiwan will solve this RACE problem by bringing in millions of third worlders and quote assimilating unquote with them.”
“Everybody says the final solution to this RACE problem is for EVERY white country and ONLY white countries to “assimilate,” i.e., intermarry, with all those non-whites.”
“What if I said there was this RACE problem and this RACE problem would be solved only if hundreds of millions of non-blacks were brought into EVERY black country and ONLY into black countries?”
“How long would it take anyone to realize I’m not talking about a RACE problem. I am talking about the final solution to the BLACK problem?”
“And how long would it take any sane black man to notice this and what kind of psycho black man wouldn’t object to this?”
“But if I tell that obvious truth about the ongoing program of genocide against my race, the white race, Liberals and respectable conservatives agree that I am a naziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews.”
They say they are anti-racist. What they are is anti-white.
“Anti-racist is a code word for anti-white.”
“…There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn’t an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag,… excludes any foreign flag of a nation to which we are hostile…We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language…and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.”
Theodore Roosevelt 1907
This was taken for granted in 1907, and TR was one of the more liberal on the subject. Today it is absolute chauvinism.
When you discuss the Constitution, remember that the same thing would have been routine to say about the white race. We were discussing what to do abut Indians and blacks, not whether to assimiliate with them.
The reason the capitol of Liberia is named for a slaveholder is because President John Monroe FOUNDED Liberia country to return freed blacks to. Francis Scott Key was another who favored this solution. Those who were opposed to slavery always had the problem of what to do with the blacks after they were freed.
This is a major hunk of history you never hear a word about. Historians act as if everybody took it for granted that it was slavery or assimilation. In fact, the accusation of “Negro Equality,” much less intermarriage, was one of the major planks of those opposing Lincoln’s reelection in 1864. He denied it vigorously, of course.
I had always wondered why Jesus never said anything which people COULDN’T have known. Back then, people would have already known the golden rule, it needed no explanation.
Dealing with the incessant shriekers, those foul liberals of exaggerated indignance, again, requires nothing we don’t already know.
Every kingergarten student will be able to tell you that if you can’t do what you want, then you aren’t free.
Our education is based on giving us books, books and scriptures to make us forget what we knew, to cloud our judgement. To make us think we CANNOT know, and we MUST turn to the established authorities for facts, for meaning, for definitions. That was my experience. Race doesn’t exist because WE SAY SO. The difference between sexes doesn’t exist because WE SAY SO. What YOU observe is wrong. What you THINK is wrong. It is WRONG because you are NOT one of the established.
You are not supposed to use your values. We have the books and you dont. Your judgement, your opinion, was of no value if you didn’t have the books and the authority.
This is why I’ve hearn hundreds of philosophers babble about ‘freedom’ and never make a point. This is why I’ve heard gun control nuts talk about how we need gun control to be free. It’s all based on words and NOT you and I, and no one ever questions it.
I went to a philosophy event where six philosophers argued about the philosophy of happiness and what it means to be happy, and how to achieve it.
Kindergarteners don’t need 6 professors to tell them what would make them happy. This puts them head and shoulders above everyone who went to that lecture expecting some form of answer.
How could our overly domesticated population of Americans possibly know that the “six million Jews” shrieking that began in the spring of 1945 was part of a “war atrocity claims game” that is as old as war itself, truth, as always and forever, “being the first causality of war”.
And how could they also possibility know that there is never and beginning and ending to war and its trajectory, the trajectory changing manifestation in forward linear time, but nevertheless one continuous trajectory from the horizon of the forgotten past to the horizon of what is impossible to ignore in the here and now.
Accordingly, WWII did not end in 1945 and continues today. It all continues, in the endless trepidations of the State of Israel, in a castrated Germany, in the generations of refugees infesting Dehli, Moscow, Cairo, Khartoum, Berlin, London, New York, cities ringed and inundated with populations of countless millions still floating in the same of old tide forcible evictions, economic desperation, and nationlessness.
Who in America really understand the continuous nature of these trajectories to see through today’s manifestations to the whole cloth of one conflict tumbling into another, the residue of the past’s reality ever present in the here and now?
And Americans crippled by one, and only one, atrocity claim? Not knowing that there have ten thousand of these in history, no less compelling in scope and ghastliness? These going back to antiquity into every age that has ever been, these claims being an integral part of war?
Americans are not and have never been up to this. They simply have not and do not have the street smarts or the “leather”.
But that will change as the current generation of weaklings and schmucks in their wholesale dereliction brought the whole cloth of the larger world and its tragic history to America with their fabulous and millennial doctrines of multi-racial and multi-ethnic harmony, doctrines only the weak, corrupt, sheltered, and pampered could possibly entertain.
They are now destined to learn the true meaning of their doctrines in radiant pain and suffering, and fated to be as steeply learned these matters as such “old world” peoples as the Sikhs in their eviction from their Indus Valley homeland, and the Serbs in their eviction from Kosovo, and the Tibetans in the Chinese usurpation of their homeland. I could go on with endless examples.
How is it possible that American people could be so utterly stupid as to let this happen? But happen it has. I see it every day in an America that is no longer American, and won’t be tomorrow and never will be again.
America is now immersed in the whole of the world and what it has always been in all of its tragic and horrible suffering, an endless trajectory of racial, ethnic, and religious conflicts.
Accordingly, the time for dumb, soft, sheltered, pampered, and no street smarts Americans is over.
