I believe there is a war between the elites and the rest of the world. The elites are of many races. halfoldman posted that a popular author states:
the black and minority elites are long since a part of the system
I have to disagree with your implication that the white, christian, european order was anything but one of might makes right.
Well, we can agree to a point. The "elites" may always turn out to be an enemy of humanity, and certainly some from every "race" will find
themselves within their ranks, but they are still not the "real" enemy. Lots of threads I'm sure have speculated on exactly who the "PTB" are,
which is more to the point, but while TPTB are elite, all the elite are not
This of course is probably too much for this particular thread, but I suppose I can address your other point regarding European culture.
I think you'll find that the notion of "might makes right" is something that has been very consistent throughout most of history, regardless of
where, and when we may be speaking of.
But within the Western tradition, there was an evolution that dates all the way back to Hammurabi's code. From kings who were virtual gods wielding
absolute power, came eventually what we usually call "democracy". Along the way, we had the classic Greek and Roman versions of it, and later Magna
Charta, and still later a virtually omnipotent Church authority that also found itself within bounds, more and more respecting the "rights" of the
I hope that didn't come off as too much of a history lesson, but the point is, compared to other world cultures, Europe led the way, even if at the
same time her empires conquered the world. In a way, Europe may not have been able to conquer, as she did, if freedoms had not grown in accord with
her growing global responsibility.
Compare this growth of freedom to other cultures. In China, the emperor was worshipped, and in Japan, people who are still alive recall their
"divine" emperor asking his subjects to voluntarily sacrifice their lives. India, Africa (I will defer to halfholdman here), the Islamic world.
Take an honest look at history, and realize what a precious gift Europe has given the world.
And yet, it was such a fragile thing, this new freedom, that too many "natural" forces might come in to play to finally reverse the trend. The
pendulum is swinging back the other way, as TPTB deploy the many means to ensure that this "threat" remains in check.
I would not be too quick to write off Europe's smashing success at subjugating the world as a result of mere might, or even things like opportunity
exploited, or superior technology. What they had in their favor was "superior" PEOPLE. And I don't necessarily mean that in any "racial" sense.
It could be, but we don't even need to appeal to that. The fact is, European "culture", which was "Christian" (for lack of a better name),
imbued their people with the characteristics that lent themselves quite well to conquest.
For better or worse, this European "culture", squeezed through the American "lens" if you will, did in fact become the defacto GLOBAL culture.
Even from a Darwinian perspective, this culture is now so dominant, it seems there is little that could stop it. Even the Chinese, and East Indians,
and the Islamic world...They all want to be part of this global culture, even if they have unique ways of tweaking it to their particular liking.
This global Westernized culture isn't anything one can stop, but it is perhaps something that can be manipulated. And this is exactly what we see,
as we all march on to a NWO that got it's initial push from viril European roots.
As anyone can see, who believes that TPTB desire to control the world, anything European must be played down, if the intention is to craft something
truly "global". And why not? If there was such strength when this monster was born, anyone wanting control would not want to allow that kind of
strength to continue, perhaps one day rising up to challenge that which they have worked so hard for.
Well, that's long enough! I would encourage anyone to look past the surface. Dump your politically correct history books. There is more than meets
the eye, in all that we're surrounded with.
