MULTICULTIiCULURALISM AND GLOBALIZATION

Dec. !8, 2017

Words that signal high fog nightmares for people like me.

If it simply means respect for another countries traditions, music, dancing, and faiths that’s fine and good.  Even more—it is praiseworthy. But often in the US (and other modern Western countries), they signal much more than that. It implies identity politics and all that entails.

AFRICAN-AMERICANS, NATIVE-AMERICANS, MUSLIM-AMERICANS, CHRISTIAN-AMERICANS, FEMINIST-AMERICANS, GREEK-AMERICANS, IRISH-AMERICANS, ANGLOSAXON-AMERICANS, LATINO-AMERICANS, SPANISH-AMERICANS, HISPANIC-AMERICANS, JEWISH-AMERICANS, CHINESE-AMERICANS, JAPANESE-AMERICANS, KOREAN-AMERICANS, SUSTAINABLE-AMERICANS, PROGRESSIVE-AMERICANS, GREEN-AMERICANS, CONSERVATIVE-AMERICANS, LIBERTARIAN-AMERICANS, LGBTQ-AMERICANS, etc., etc., etc. The list goes on and on and on.Whatever happened to the “melting pot?” Each identity has its own agenda and to hell with the issues not on their agendas.

True believers in multiculturism and globalization claim if you don’t believe the nonexistent evidence for some of these identity faiths— you’re a racist! Furthermore, anyone who says Western Culture is superior is simply stupid and un-educated—probably racist as well!

I’m not stupid and uneducated. I am not a racist or a homophobe. I am a realist though. There really are significant differences in individuals, in roughly definable groups, or sometimes in entire cultures.

THeis is an exceptional country that has led the way into the Modern Age of science & technology, freedom of religion, diversity of cultures, and capitalist wealth. Not many countries can match that record.

Rher are other differences. Yes, Jews and Orientals are on average superior in intelligence, leadership, and past achievements. And yes, Islam is in cold fact an inferior faith! Especially in its exclusive view of God and lack of freedom. And yes, Africans and African-Americans are on average superior in many sports that require quickness, speed, stamina, size, and strength. And yes, females are different from males in many ways, including abstract thought and past achievements in mathematics, science, technology, and philosophy.

And yes, the US is an exceptional country. Not because its average citizens are in any way superior, but because it is the country that led the way into the Modern Age in 1776. And it still leads in the 21st century despite the bitter worldwide hatred of Donald Trump and his campaign to “make America great again.”

That’s not the end.

True believers in multiculturism also hold that other cultures, especially that primitive Hunting/Gathering ones are actually superior to modern western ones. Followers of this faddish idea (most of them blissfully ignorant of any connection) can be found in the current craze for tattoos and body jewelry—male earrings, studs in the nose and lip, and gobs of unisex eyebrow, belly button, genital, facial, and tongue jewelry.

On a more intellectual level True Believers in multiculturism

True Believers in Multicuralism and globalization think the US is actually the world’s most terrorist and imperialist nation on earth. They delight in dredging up obscure facts and inventing absurdly complex conspiracy theories to explain 9/11, Radical Muslim assault gun attacks, and the JFK assassination. They blithely ignore most Radical Muslim, fascist, or socialist atrocities.  Prominent among these are learned pop star scholars like Jared Diamond and Harvard professors like Noam Chomsky; not to mention not-so-learned Hollywood types like Michael Moore, Oliver Stone, Meryl Streep, Whoopi Goldberg, and their many followers and fans.

This is still not the end.

These same worthies also promote ideas that the environment is fearfully polluted, we are fast running out of natural resources, and population, nuclear bombs, and global climate change threaten our very survival as a species. The fact that all of these faiths have precious little evidence to support them is beside the point. “Spend spend, and spend more tax dollars to add to the imaginary defects and crimes.” And “Never mind the higher taxes (the profit-hungry rich can afford it) and ever-mounting debt,” preach the progressive/green clergy.
