It is in no way stable. First we would have to convince the general populace that there is even a reason to begin building a foundation. That in
itself would be extremely complicated because we are dealing with an ideology which is quite old and quite destructive, like a cancer of sorts. It is
convinced of its superiority over thousands of years of alternative belief. I believe that every civilization travels through seasons; from spring
through winter. The West has experienced spring, summer, and autumn so now we are in winter. Whether or not we make it out, or even if we deserve to
make it out, are yet to be seen.
We can judge that there are in fact certain universal truths revealed in different manners to different people depending on culture. In the Indian
Civilization it was revealed through Hinduism, Buddhism, Sikhism, and Jainism. In the Chinese Civilization it was revealed through Taoism. In Japanese
Civilization it was Confucianism. In Africa it was expressed by each tribe rather than any organized belief. In the Arab, North African, and Central
Asian world it was expressed through Islam. In Europe it was expressed through Judaism and Christianity. And among the Indigenous peoples of
Australasia and the Americas it was expressed through their numerous Shamanistic and Folk religions. But all come back to a certain universal truth, a
dedication to a form of transcendence above this material realm.
Us in the West have lost our ‘tap root in Eden’ and with it our transcendence which almost all other cultures still hold. It will return again but
when, how, and where are major questions that cannot be answered as of yet.
Those who claim that we are all one are misled and are misleading others. There are different religions, different races, different ethnicities, which
go beyond the outer shell of itself. Your skin color is merely an outer representation of your inner spirit; we are all different regardless of what
some people may say. Does that mean we are biologically superior? Absolutely not, I would rather avoid the biological side of things because that is
once again playing in their world of materialism. Different cultures exist because they have a different collective soul, albeit expressed with
individual free will on this earth, but which ultimately makes each person, group, race, religion, etc… different.
Some people have abandoned this understanding of difference because they do not want to identify as American or Christian or whatever. They want to be
a citizen of the world, one with everyone and everything. This in itself is a Universalist creed which forces itself onto other people as a form of
imperialism of thought; it is an assumption that there is one universal way which all other things should be subordinate to. They do not accept that
the true universal truths are revealed and explained differently for a reason, this to them is Dark Age type of thinking. We must all abandon what
teaches us virtue and values for a new system, artificially designed without the input of any universal truth that is transcendent. Every Abrahamic
religion warns us about this and what is behind it.
