Racism

Being someone of South American descent, I was never raised under the auspice of race or racism.  In fact, I was raised color blind.  I know, the term “color blind” is now considered covert racism, which is absolute nonsense.  My parents didn’t want me to recognize nor prejudge a person by the way they looked, but rather by their character.  Throughout my childhood anyone darker than me I just saw it as that, just a tanned human being with no label other than their given name.  The mind of a child is an amazing thing in life and the ability to accept people as they are is born into us.  For example, my mother worked at an animal shelter whom had a co-worker that was black.  Once in awhile, I would go with my mom and the black woman would bring her children as well.  We’d have a good ol’ time just playing and being kids.  Not once did I think of them as anything but fellow children.  It wasn’t until high school that the idea of people being separated based on “race” (I use that term in quotations due to the fact that there is only one race, the human race) due to ones melanin content was actually a thing.  To me, basing what “race” someone is based of the melanin content of ones flesh is ridiculous.  It’s nothing more than evolutionary by-product that has ZERO bearing on who you are as a person.  No one, by virtue of their abundance, or lack there of, of melanin make them superior nor inferior. The dream that Martin Luther King Jr. had was of a world where our differences no longer mattered.  However, today we have begun to reverse our progress in “race” relations towards neo-segregationism where the idea of a “black only showing…” of a movie is something to be applauded.  No, nothing that divides human beings is never a good idea.  I’m sorry, but that isn’t progress, it’s regressive.

Throughout my adolescence my father, who is of Spanish (originating in the Canary Islands), Italian (both a mix of northern and southern Italian) and French, always made it a point to remind that due to our Italian and Spanish heritage that we have North African(Moors/Berbers) blood pumping through our veins.  And from mothers side of the family we have English, Irish, Welsh, German, Dutch, Swedish and Native American blood.  So, I’m not exactly pure anything, I’m a mutt.  My mother made sure to remind me of that as well.  We’re not pure anything.  Having these ideas surrounding me growing up made any sense of pure anything really to me and became even more alien when you realize that in human history with the migration out of Africa of our early ancestors and the successive invasions by different groups of people, the idea of pure anything becomes ridiculous to even contemplate.  Anyone who figures they’re pure anything, especially here in America, they obviously have no sense of human history.  Also, keep in mind, if “race” truly mattered mutts like me wouldn’t exist.  Since we do exist, that only means there’s no genetic difference between all of us human beings and the lie that racial supremacists have been fed is an absolute crock of shit.  I do get pride in your ancestors and I think that’s great, but when we use our ancestors as a means of puffing up our delusional superiority, that’s when it becomes a problem.

So, why do we do this to ourselves, allow ourselves to be separated by petty and silly labels that truly have no meaning.  We aggravate our lives with these lies of “race” even though science shows otherwise.  If humanity is to have any future it needs to start deconstructing the lie of “race” and start realizing that there is one race, the Human Race.  If a conquering alien civilization came to Earth, they wouldn’t see white vs. black, but rather all a bunch of humans that should be conquered and nothing more.  The superiority of your “race” would mean nothing to an advanced and aggressive species.  You can call me a covert racist, like I’m sure some might want or even a “race” traitor, none of that matters because I feel my convictions are right and once people start to get their fetishism over “race” we humans might actually make a decent species for once.  You want change?  That’s where it begins.

Marxist Ignorance

Religion

This morning I read an article on this website called Socialist Appeal about science and how those of any religion tend to be ignorant of science.  It also speculates that once material wealth is abundant for all that religion would disappear entirely.

The coming socialist revolution will establish universal high-quality education, placing the wondrous power of modern technology at the feet of the people and allowing it to be used according a democratic plan in the interests of all. This revolution will be the negation of all traditional faiths and superstitious rituals, as people voluntarily drift away from these, on the basis of material wealth and security, available for the first time to everyone.

That’s a bold statement to make considering that in most cases becoming religious or spiritual isn’t because a lack of security and/or material wealth, but rather the emptiness produced by being solely reliant on such.  This is one classic example of the ignorance shown by Marxists in general, they believe that once people are “happy”, within a materialistic and superficial paradigm, that religion will disappear.  Well, Christians believed this very same thing when they converted our ancestors from paganism to Christianity, that once the light of Christ entered the souls of the pagan that “happiness” would become more common place in society.  However, with the resurgence of paganism, especially in Iceland a country that should be, by all means in the realm of socialism, “happy”, but somethings missing apparently that Iceland is the first nation in over a thousand years to build a pagan temple to the old Norse Gods. Scandinavian socialism is held in such high regard by socialists in the West, so shouldn’t the Marxist hypothesis be true in this respect?  Seems like the hypothesis is null and void because for a nation to be abundant and accepting enough to allow a pagan temple to be built shows that religion will never die out no matter how much the Marxists want their ideology to be held in sacrosanct.

I’m coming from this as someone highly into the sciences and currently attending college for a Biotechnology degree, so to assume because I believe in multiple Gods doesn’t mean I’m an ignorant simpleton.  In fact, the director of the National Health Institute and leader of the Human Genome Project, Francis Collins, is a Christian, though not a Creationist Christian, but a Christian who believes in Yahweh and Jesus Christ.  I seriously doubt this man would’ve been allowed to conduct such an important project if he were simply a feeble minded, Dark Age mystic.  Another example is my father, another Evolutionist Christian, who most likely has a genius IQ with all the things he DIYed and the problem solving skills shown. However, Marxists would figure him to be a superstitious dolt.

Race
Within much of the Leftist spectrum is a tendency to be shameful of the actions of their ancestors, which is called “white guilt”.  I find this trend to be ridiculous and a sign of a weak mind.  Since Lizzy Borden is my distant relative, should I feel shameful for her acts of violence?  Gods no!  Why would I since I wasn’t even born then?  So it must be asked why white Leftists should shame and induce shameful feelings within other white people about actions they themselves had no hand nor control over? No one should have any shame for what their ancestors did, because there is nothing you can do to change the past.  The past is an immovable mountain, however the present and future is quite malleable.  You affect change now instead of wasting your time feeling guilty for the past that you had no hand in.  One of those discussions we need is the discussion that eliminates the idea of melanin based racial labels and viewing all people as what they really are: The Human Race.  However, Marxists still enjoy dividing people up into small, easily controlled parcels of human beings in order to better control their attempt at social engineering.  It’s the same tactic used by the two major parties in power in America today, the Democrats and Republicans.  In order to keep absolute power the people must be absolutely divided.

Conclusion
I used to be a Marxist years ago and I have no regrets.  After all, it helped me formulate my slight socialist with a libertarian edge ideology.  I consider myself patriotic in regards to my country and I support the Constitution.  It’s perhaps one of the most perfect documents outlining our freedoms these days.  I support the 2nd Amendment to the point where I believe open carry should be allowed.  Though I would prefer a battle axe to a gun, but to each their own.  I support states rights and a decentralized form of government, meaning that the Federal Government interferes as little as possible with what states and their population vote and decide for themselves.  I support gay marriage and gay adoption.  I don’t see anything repulsive about this.   I support Universal Healthcare, which I think can still be decided by states to implement or not without the Federal government. I’m neutral on abortion.  I have my reasons, but I’ll keep them to myself. I believe in absolute religious freedom which extends to businesses as well.  If a business wishes to not patronize a certain group of people, that’s their right.  However, they must not whine about the loss of profits due to their decision.  This of course goes beyond Christian businesses, but also other religiously based businesses such as pagan ones who wouldn’t want to patronize Christians or other monotheists. I’m pro-animal rights and pro-environment, obviously.

That’s just a few things where no one can truly pinpoint my ideology, which I think if anyone follows one ideology to the T, then it’s nothing more than ignorance.  I believe both sides of the political spectrum have something to contribute to our political system.  Whether socialism or capitalism wins out for absolute control of a country it’s simply totalitarianism.

In a world that is in chaos politically, socially and environmentally, how can the human race sustain another 100 years?

In a world that is in chaos politically, socially and environmentally, how can the human race sustain another 100 years? – Stephen Hawking

I’ll do my best to answer this question posited by Stephen Hawking back in 2006.

First and foremost, humanity must recognize it’s kinship by disposing of the idea of race.  This very thing is the greatest barrier that plagues our species.  We are blind to our close relation to each other and deny the fact that the human race is only one race and NOT an amalgamation of races under the umbrella of the Human genus.  Race is nothing but traits produced by evolution within a given environment and nothing more.  It’s sadly held in sacrosanct these days all over the world, but it’s a disease and who in their right mind holds a disease as an idol?  It’s a disease that infects the mind, blinding human beings of their potential.  Potential is destroyed because once you apply that ridiculous label of “white”, “black” and etc. you pigeonhole yourself and everyone inside and outside of your “race” expects you to be something within the parameters of that “races” limited scope.  Once you discard “race” like garbage, you are free to wander the landscape before without any borders or restrictions.  You no longer have to worry about someone saying “You’re acting white/black/Asian/Hispanic….etc.” because it will no longer matter because it is no longer sacred.  Therefore your full potential can be unlocked.

Humanity has always been divided by it’s tribalistic nature and still is tribalistic today, but today people actually want that to remain because it is profitable to them.  What they don’t understand is that it’s helping pull our species towards extinction because all of the resources and energy needed to progress humanity is being wasted on petty things like racial division.  Despite our divisions we have done amazing things in the areas of science, philosophy, art and so forth.  Now, I dare you to imagine what we could do if we were united once and for all as the Human Race.  That is the crux of my answer and why it is absolutely important to overcome race all together. Once we discard race we will heave ourselves over the wall that has separated humanity and come together to figure out solutions for everything that ails our species.  Everything will come into play once we are united and nothing can stop us but ourselves.

This is how we progress in the universe.
