This is in response to a recent comment made by “Yew Among You“, who I’m guessing also uses other names for himself. Here’s the text of the comment with my responses in bold:
Jew Among You! Are you the guy who posted a video at YOUTUBE putting 3 different types of ice cream in a blender and saying that’s what “liberals” want to do to all the various entho-cultures, amalgamate them in the name of “multi-culturalism”? And that you prefer enjoying each ice cream separate in its own unique flavor?
Yes, that was me.
Actually its the opposite, at least here in USA (don’t know where you are writing from). Here the “conservatives” want people to “assimilate” into one homogenous mass and even convert to Christianity! The liberals and multi-culturalists on the other hand like freedom and diversity of religions and cultures.
The “conservatives” you speak of are not conservatives; they’re slow liberals. Their racial/cultural attitudes are indistinguishable from those of other liberals, except that they are a bit slower to adopt them. John Derbishire has already explained this on various occasions. It’s true that there are Christian fundamentalists who call themselves “conservative”, and who do want the entire world to convert to Christianity, but when it comes to racial matters (and my ice cream video was targeted mainly at advocates of race-mixing), most of them are entirely within the leftist camp. It was the Left that agitated for school integration, the Left that pushed massive third-world immigration on the West and the Left that forbade neighborhood associations, landlords and real-estate agents to discriminate on the basis of race. All the above inevitably lead to race-mixing (ice cream in the blender). All of the above were, in turn, adopted by so-called “conservatives”. Any “conservative” who favors any of the above is not a true conservative; he is a slow liberal. While the Left claims to be in favor of “diversity”, what they are really working toward is destruction of diversity.
As far as Asians emulating “European culture” some do. However a very large % want to avoid all your divorce, promiscuous sex, disrespect for elders, obnoxious teenage rebellion, single parenting, single parent dating, etc. For the most part Asians take pride in their various ethno-cultural traditions, philosophies, religions and family values.
This could be the case; I don’t claim to know what percentage of Asians answer a higher moral calling. From what I’ve read, the Indian sub-continent leaves much to be desired in the way of morality and respect. Of course, Yew could be referring specifically to East Asians.
As for the West being morally bankrupt, the disappearance of Church authority and, to a large extent, Christianity, left a vast void. As a result, many whites were left with no moral compass when it came to the matters you describe. Societies change. Cultures evolve and one religion fades into another. I don’t think there has been a time, prior to the modern era, when a religion disappeared and was not replaced with another. Leftism has sought to replace Christianity, but it lacks the history, ritual and spirituality of other religions. This is why many Europeans are embracing Islam instead. It’s a pity that the spiritual needs of the masses cannot be met without lying to them. It’s a shame the so many must fear the hand of heaven to abstain from sin.
Yes, it’s probably healthier for Asian societies to continue their ancestral traditions, flaws and all, rather than embrace the empty pop culture that now passes for “Western” culture. As for the West, I hope it can find its way without destroying itself.
Those Indians may get off the plane and start littering and talking loud once in India but they will not date, have promiscuous sex, smartass back talk their parents, divorce, talk trash about their families, religion or traditions once in India because “sssshhhh, the Indians are watching”.
I don’t think I’m qualified to speak to this; I’ll leave it to Indian readers. But it certainly does appear that many more Indians would rather live in Europe and America than in India. You imply that it’s not just the trashy Indians who move abroad. So, if India is so great, why do so many Indians leave?
While Germans may come down hard on people who throw candy wrappers out the window, they are perfectly comfortable with promiscious sex, divorce, obnoxious teenage disrespect of elders, single parenting, single parent dating, and all manner of other uncivilized behaviour that is rampant (and indeed the universal hallmark of) Western so-called “civilization”.
Not to mention the fact that they have so little respect for their own German heritage that they tolerate their daughters marrying Africans and Muslims. It would be nice if Europe could re-learn some things from the Asians, over whom they ruled not so long ago.
