Racism is natural and even fundamental to all living things. The expression natural selection says it all. All species have always worked hard in order to survive, and they did that by specializing. Over time, as the species honed their survival skills, they avoided, repelled and even destroyed anything that interfered with their existence, anything that was different. In their drive towards uniformity, the species were intolerant to outsiders. That is still true of all living things on earth today except human beings, for when we became intelligent, we left the world of natural selection.
3 million years ago, we still strove to maintain our survival skills, and we were 100% racist. But as we gradually became intelligent and left the world of natural selection, racism or selectivity was no longer indispensable as a survival tool. And as lower order males outwitted the alpha male in order to enjoy the rapture of reproducing, the human genetic pool deteriorated. As a result, we had to get used to living with family, friends and mates who weren’t the strongest, the bravest, the tallest, the smartest, and who were not always beautiful or well constituted. In other words, we started realizing that intelligence could compensate for certain lacks, and we became less racist. The Bill Gates’ and the Woody Allen’s of our specie are today alphas in their own right. Brute force is no longer the driving force that ensures success. We see ever more examples of this gradual change, and it augurs well for our specie.
But racism remains very much present among humans. As recently as 325 CE, Christianity started using racism in a very sophisticated way. Anyone who didn’t accept the Nicene Creed that stated that Apollonius cum Christ was the son of God and not a prophet, were excluded from the Kingdom of God, and therefore were considered less than human. Millions were massacred until all of Europe accepted the Nicene Creed.
When the children of God from Europe went to America, it was a repeat. All the animists who were already there were considered less than human because they didn’t believe in God, and because they couldn’t read and write, the Europeans didn’t hesitate to steal their lands by having them sign agreements with an X or by giving them rifles and pots and pans in compensation. And worse, after the white Christians grabbed their land, the slave trade supplied a steady supply of negro labor to work the very lands stolen from the American animists. That was all done with the blessing of the Christian church, and that was extreme racism.
We’ve had 1800 years of this children of God nonsense hammered into us, and that’s not easy to erase. We still choose to celebrate the birth of a fabricated Christ instead of a very real Sol Invictus on the 25th of December, so we have a long way to go. Maybe someday the extraordinary story of Stonehenge will help us turn the clock back and infuse some sense of reality into our lives.
However, we do have globalization. Globalization as a financial concept was elaborated by Mayer Amschel Rothschild in 1763 when he sent Haym Salomon to the American Colonies in order to start a bills of exchange counter. He instilled confidence in the paper he emitted, and he was so successful that the offspring of his notes, the US dollar, is today very much alive and accepted in the remotest corners of our planet. It was a concept, when translated in social terms, meant to save humanity. Today, for instance, because Mayer’s dynasty controls world finance out of the City using the dollar as the official reserve currency in all the central banks of the world, there will never be another world war. Because it encourages immigration out of the Middle East and Africa, the gene pool in Europe and America is being regenerated. And because most immigrants are of the Muslim faith, that religion will become more accepted by Christians and religion in general will become less of a tool for stoking unrest. Furthermore, because most new immigrants have black or swarthy complexions, non-whites are becoming part of our social fabric, and in time, will be perfectly integrated. So, if globalization regenerates the gene pool and ensures global peace while combating racism based on color and religion, why are so many people against it?
The answer is that people don’t understand how the world of credit was created, and they are led to believe that bankers are crooks. Needless to say, I would dearly love to change that. We have a relatively level playing field, and although there is still a lack of parity between men and women, we should take advantage of what we do have, and try to improve upon it. Hating bankers or people with different skin color is based on blind ignorance and is totally counterproductive. Understanding why one bullies homosexuals, women, children and people of different color, how the world of credit was created, how we are driven by our libido, is something we can all achieve, and if we did, we would realize that we live in the best of all possible worlds and we would be better prepared to take advantage of it. Why O.D on ignorance?
