I'm still trying to figure out if this trend is a decentralized movement or if there are actually puppet masters at work

There is a group of very intelligent people who have power and wealth to gain that are using social media to rile up the useful idiots.

but none of this shite means anything in normative terms.


But functioning in a "normative" context now appears interpretable as bigotry to the "New" left. Expecting a person to identify in a binary fashion (you know, "normal") is now hateful and bigoted.

Like Bizarro world.

This seems demonstrably false. 1620 - 1955ish? vs 1955ish to now?

And I'd argue those "lingering effects" are not a result of a history of white supremacy, but by ham-fisted or outright calculated shitty government policy.

See: Anything by LBJ.
LBJ might have contributed negatively, but you are being way too cavalier about the preceding 200 years.

I'd give the credit to guys like Pat Buchanan who popularized protectionism, anti-globalism, and immigration control aimed at preserving racial demographics

Good things.

You're such an idiot. No one has a problem with legal immigrants and Asian and Indian men are far and away the best demographic this country has to offer.

No, I simply look at the success of the average nuclear black family from Reconstruction through the diaspora to manufacturing cities, and then how this ever increasing success comes to a screeching halt with the "War on Poverty."

Asian people are good at math
Indian people are good at engineering

Are we talking about the Old World? The vast, vast majority of it wasn't touched by the Europeans until the late 19th century. Most of Africa has been independent nearly as long as they were under the yoke at this point.

I can't stress enough how easily this unique project can come apart if the perverse tribalism of the Old World is allowed to take hold here. It will undo progress which was fought for, and lead us to be like Europeans again, lost in the future because we are stuck in the past.

I couldn't agree more with your argument and its scholarly and well stated conclusion.

You stated very clearly what I was fumbling with.

First of all, there is no culture more violent than ours. All you have to do is look at the entertainment we obsess over.


Your first sentence is patently false. The second is a poor correlation to support your false premise.
