Can we, for a brief moment,
cut the crap?
There are few things that are a bigger pile of self-love inspired, shopping mall mentality bullshit than self-determination.
No one is self-determined. As John Donne said, “Every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main.” People are born into culture’s, bound by rituals, beliefs and religions. Elizabeth Warren is dead wrong when she says, “you didn’t build that road.”
If we didn’t build our society based on our rules, our beliefs and our religion, we wouldn’t need a road. We’d be using a dirt path.
The whole idea that the “noble savages” as Steven Pinker calls them could have ever built a modern society is such of pile of asinine leftist horse-shit that frankly, only a dimwit university professor would ever believe it.
If you travel across Europe, you’ll see countless Roman ruins. There are aqueducts, colosseums, bridges and roads, some still in use today. The Romans were imperialists and the signs of their genius are thousands of miles away. And not just in building, but in literature, laws, banking and democracy.
Yet, for 1,500 years, the indigenous people they “enslaved” still couldn’t replicate what the Romans did.
Is there somebody out there that believes that Native Americans, if left alone, would have manufactured steel, developed a written language or started their own banks? The idea that these “natives” were peaceful and believed in coexistence are absurd. They were no less bloodthirsty and greedy than the Europeans that pushed them out.
So, why do we worship their culture? Because they got their asses kicked?
Of course, we know they would have been better off without us. I mean, who wouldn’t want to get raped and watch their children starve and be sold into slavery after their father’s scalp was removed. It must be pure joy to live in a society where the average life expectancy is 23 and you spend those years with bug infestations gnawing away at your skin.
What could be more fun than being 8 months pregnant and pounding a dead muskrat against a rock to make your new baby a pair of underwear?
I worked for seven years in Saudi Arabia and Dubai in the oil industry. We (the west) found their oil, drilled it, produced it, refined it and sold it to ourselves. We then GAVE THEM THE MONEY. And with the bonanza of wealth they created a woman’s prison, financed worldwide terrorism run through hundreds of madrassas and poisoned half the world with their corruption.
Is there somebody out there that believes that these Cro-Magnons would have done this if we didn’t leave them to “self-determine.”
The Venezuelans aren’t starving because of imperialism, they’re starving because of self-determination. It was imperialism that gave them an oil industry, roads, electricity and modern farming practices. If it wasn’t for imperialism, their population would be 1/3 of what it is today. It was the people that voted Chavez into power.
Look at India, the world’s biggest “democracy.” They have a population of 1.3 billion. Every day, over a billion of their people shit into a toilet that flushes into a creek, which goes to a river, that goes to the ocean. What kind of people, in 2019, shit in their own water supply?
They, along with China are poisoning the world with water and air pollution.
They cannot control their populations and can’t feed the people they have. In the decade between 2006 and 2016, India added the equivalent of 1/3 of the entire US population.
Of course, this is our fault.
A huge percentage of the world’s educated population is Christian, specifically Catholic. Even in communist China, Moslem India and atheist Russia this is the case. When mother Theresa went to Calcutta to minster to Indians and give them a respectable death, she was doing death bed conversions to Hindu’s she found dying on the streets. She was criticized by the same Hindu’s that wouldn’t lift a finger to bury their own people. She was called a hypocrite for trying to convert them from a culture that doesn’t give a damn about their people to one that does.
It’s high time that the west, specifically the Christian west, or more specifically, the conservative Christian west starts to tell the rest of the world to fuck-off.
We don’t want any more of their drug induced faiths, idiotic theories, witless mantra’s or “we are the world” governments. It’s not our fault that you shit in the street and we aren’t responsible every time you pump out another 100 million babies you can’t feed, won’t educate and don’t give a shit about.
and require intelligence, hard work and perseverance to maintain. If it’s so easy to develop trading system, why haven’t any of the indigenous cultures done it? The same people who call our system imperialist, can’t even manufacture their own toilets.
Every country that the west enveloped in our “imperial” model is today 1,000 times better off than it was under self-determination.
Korea, Japan, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Colombia one could name 50 more. Every country that has rejected it is, to use Trumps apt word, a shit hole. Venezuela, Cuba, Russia, Belorussia, China, North Korea.
Why do we keep apologizing for being right? In what war does the winner surrender?
In the new world order of today, you can’t get a job in a University, even a Catholic university, if you say that the west has any merit. This is our “intelligentsia.” Millions of people are strapped with debt loads that have destroyed their lives because they’ve listened to these university half-wits.
Should the US invade Venezuela and replace its government?
Your god-damned right we should. And if the next populist flea-brain that wins an election because he wants to confiscate private property?
We should take his worthless ass out also.
Imagine for a moment that you live in Caracas and your 6-year-old daughter comes up and says “mommy, I’m hungry. Are we going to eat today?” Imagine what goes through the mind of a father or mother who has to hear that, all the while Hugo Chavez’s kids are living on the French Riviera in a hotel that costs $600 a night.
Our spoiled, cloistered, mall rat professors and palm greasing media figures love to tell us that self determination is the ultimate freedom. That’s because they make their money on that.
But there are other freedoms they ignore.
Like the freedom to flip a light switch and have a light come on. The freedom to go to a grocery store and buy a can of Spam. Or the freedom to start a business and not have it confiscated by the local communists so their kids can go to Harvard and live on the French Riviera.
Without these freedoms, self-determination is just another worthless college course.
