DIVERSITY is Orwellian newspeak for #RacialMixing, which goes to the opposite extreme of the Nazi obsession with #RacialPurity. Thus:

Racial mixing GOOD.
Whiteness (as a symbol of racial purity) BAD.

This is the moral imperative at the heart of the religion of #AntiRacism.
"Diversity" has other meanings, of course, which help to obscure its Orwellian meaning in regard to race.

It serves to deny the reality & importance of race, in a misconceived, #NeverAgain, response to Nazi racial ideology.
It is a denial of the truth that race is real, & important; not in the way the Nazis thought it was, but for any deep & meaningful sense of both personal & group, i.e. genuine national, identity - which #BigBrother state does not want us to have. Thus, his embrace of DIVERSITY.

Q. Why are the British state, establishment, academia & Parliament so committed to the religion of #AntiRacism?

A. It serves as a source of (spurious) moral authority, just as the religion of the established church once did, by means of which British society is controlled.
Many Europeans fled Europe for America, to escape the tyranny of established religion, only for their descendants to succumb to the tyranny of the religion of #AntiRacism, which not only oppresses them, but will soon reduce them to a racial minority in the country they founded.
Why would the West's own White elites embrace an ideology that is detrimental to their OWN race?

For the same reason that, in the 19th century, Britain's elites allowed British children to work in factories & mines.

Personal self-interests above those of kith, kin & race.

Hello, #MedTwitter, #MedStudentTwitter, #NeuroTwitter
It’s been a long time since my last clinical neuroanatomy #tweetorial, sorry about that!

Here's a new one:

MOTOR SUPPLY to the FACE and Approach to FACIAL WEAKNESS

I'm glad #EndNeurophobia campaign has grown but please check out the rest of my feed, which seeks to amplify voices I’m learning from on the path to becoming an antiracist ally

Just like the arms and legs the facial motor pathway has both UPPER motor neurons and LOWER motor neurons:
The UMNs begin in the lateral precentral gyrus, descend with the internal capsule, through the cereeral peduncle to arrive at the facial nucleus in the PONS.

England's (soon to become Britain's) #GloriousRevolution was glorious indeed - for the elites. For ordinary Englishmen & Britons, not so much, which is why the American colonies broke away, sick of being exploited by Parliament & Britain's elites (never mind the King).
Amerca's founding fathers hoped to create a genuine nation of free White people (yes, White, because they knew that multi-racial nationhood would never work), instead of the mercenary #PatronState (deceitfully posing as a nation) that Britain was.
The founders knew it would be difficult enough creating a genuine nation from different European peoples of the same race.

And so it has proven. America became just a bigger, more powerful, version of the Orwellian construct that is now the UK.

The #GreatReplacement & #WhiteSelfGenocide are NOT far-right conspiracy theories, but very real consequences of the ideology/religion of Post-Racial #Multiculturalism, DIVERSITY, Inclusion & #AntiRacism, which now dominates the West in the name of #NeverAgain!
This ideology/religion, which #CriticalRaceTheory has also embraced, was an overreaction to the Nazis having manipulated & exploited German tribalism for their own evil purposes. It demonises human tribalism itself, which is madness - but with Orwellian method to it.
This demonisation of human tribalism is like demonising male sexuality for its role in rape.

Men must learn to control their sexual urges in a civilised fashion, & it should be the same with our tribalism. Instead, its demonisation is exploited by the state, i.e. #BigBrother.

1/ @AmerMedicalAssn adopted two resolutions we wrote (CC @glass_heff_full @FaithCrittenden + more).

For the first time in AMA history, we have policy to explicitly & actionably fight for #antiracism in #MedEd, health care delivery, research, & practice.

🧵 from the #AMAmtg ImageImage
2/ First, let's be clear: we passed these policies by standing on the shoulders of giants, & especially women of color.

We cited almost 100 references by scholars including @CamaraJones @DorothyERoberts @zinzinator @DrMaryTBassett @RRHDr @tsaiduck77 @AmakaEMD @IHJM_ & others. ImageImageImageImage
3/ By telling the truth & reconciling harms, and by advocating for actionable paths forward, these new policies will foster a brighter future of robust AMA advocacy for #HealthEquity and #Antiracism.

The adopted Resolved clauses (our resolutions are 005 & 010) are as follows: ImageImageImage

#BigBrotherBritain

George Orwell based his novel, 1984, on 1930s fascism & communism, projecting them onto a future Britain & unwittingly making it difficult for us to recognise how #BigBrother would manifest himself in liberal democracies like our own.
Manifest himself he does, but not as in 1984. Instead, we are left many freedoms, while at the same time being enslaved - rich & poor alike - to BigB & #TheMatrix of state & capital. As in the film, most are completely unaware of it, & the well-served have no reason to become so.
But enslaved we are, to a system that is inherently unjust, inhumane, & unsustainable on our finite, vulnerable & overpopulated planet, #SpaceshipEarth.

Thus enslaved, our leaders have been unable to initiate the #SustainabilityRevolution on which our very survival depends.

Gross (& that's putting it mildly) income inequality is what defines America & reflects its Orwellian nature. theguardian.com/commentisfree/…
Yes, Orwellian!

George Orwell based his novel, 1984, on 1930s fascism & communism, under Hitler & Stalin, projecting it onto a future Britain.

He unwittingly blinded us to how #BigBrother operates under liberal democracy, tricking us into loving him by posing as our nation.
"National income going to middle Americans fell from 62% to 43% between 1970 & 2018, while the number of billionaires has surged: from 66 in 1990 with a combined wealth of $240bn, to 614 today, with a total fortune of nearly $3tn."

And this makes no mention of poor Americans.

Today has been fantastic!
Celebrating black history with @jasleonce @CelinaMfuko and the honour of receiving an EoE regional midwife @WENDYMATTHEWS8 award for improvement and innovation work we have led on to improve outcomes for Black Asian and Minority ethnic women and staff💃🏽
A second generation “paddy immigrant” racial issues have been part of my family culture. I am aware I receive the award as a white ally in a privileged position and of the importance of elevating the black and brown voices of those around me.
I am dedicated to using my leadership position to reduce healthcare inequalities, raise awareness and promote anti-racism. It is also important for me to say I do not get it right all the time I am learning, educating myself and seeking to create space. #doingthework #antiracism

Reflecting on privilege today. I was washing raspberries for breakfast today & was struck by how lucky I am. I once was so broke, I couldn’t afford fresh fruit for months. Had to choose b/w food & heat on the regular. I often had to thaw out my shampoo before washing my hair 1/7
I then headed to campus for my flu shot, still feeling very fortunate. Sat down, ready for the needle and was asked if I had any “risk factors” according to the sheet or was in a “high risk” population. One of the bullet points just read: Indigenous 2/7
In that moment, on the heels of some very traumatic weeks for Indigenous folx in 🇨🇦, I felt triggered tbh. I was there as faculty. I’m fairly healthy (minus pandemic Dorito habit), and now am deemed “high risk”. For what?, I asked. 3/7

CW: anti-semitism, racism

#medievaltwitter, It’s easy to not want to take these racist/antisemitic statements seriously, but they're dangerous. We have opportunities to correct ppl for their absolute atrocious false sense of history & #antisemitism. #shakerace #antiracism 1/21
I gave a talk recently on the connections between #Covid19, racism & parallels to scapegoating w/ the Black Death. So here are some highlights you can share when it comes to #antisemitic statements like the 1 above.
We shouldn't ignore opportunities to squash these

& it’s dangerous not to correct sweeping antisemetic statements, particularly as medievalists. #medievaltwitter

#Antisemitism was rampant in Europe throughout the entire middle ages, particularly in the later middle ages, but we see it in the early MA too. At the height

🧵Been a while since we had a thread on #antiracism & allyship. Wanted to talk about screwing up today, as I've done before but it's worth repeating. Wannabe allies will always screw up. We all do. I do in allyship with other marginalized communities. 1/11
Should you apologize? How do you do that effectively? Let's go through some steps. Apologies don't always mean anything. If you rush to say sorry w/o thinking through where you F'd up then it's time to take a step back. #antiracism is something you must work at, & it doesn't 2/
come easy. If you apologize to a BIPOC individual you may've hurt or offended, they do not owe you a response. If you expect one, you're centering yourself. This is also abt labor. You are putting more labor on them. This apology is not about you, & if you've made it so, 3/

📣 For those committed to #InclusiveLeadership & #antiracism at work: One of the primary reasons that we aren’t progressing on #DEI is that we’ve been oversold the value of diversity and haven’t dug deeply enough into the personal costs. A thread./1
In my view, the greatest individual cost of DEI is the comfort of the status quo. As @mjmichellekim calls out, we love to coddle it. Breaking the inertia requires all of us to wrestle with the costs and benefits of change and reckon with what we are willing to give up./2
Here are 3 ways in which progress threatens key aspects of who people leaders are and what we can ask ourselves if we’re truly committed to leaving a positive legacy on the future of work./3

.@JohnHMcWhorter describes #AntiRacism as a RELIGION, which it is; not in a spiritual sense, but in the role religion plays as an instrument of personal, social & political rewards, intimidation & control.
Social & political scientists fail to recognise this, because they themselves are members of the priesthood of #AntiRacism, helping to maintain a system which confers on them moral authority, & works to their own personal advantage.
In this context, let us revisit Orwell's 1984:

All civilisations & the states which comprise them are rooted in self-exploitation, which leads to the creation of different classes, & ultimately to a society's self-destruction.
#AntiRacism, like medieval church ideology, serves as an instrument of socio-political rewards, intimidation & control, thus facilitating society's self-exploitation to the advantage of its morally superior & wealthy elites.
In place of Original Sin (disobedience of divine, i.e. priestly, authority) we now have #Whiteness, from which only a commitment to #AntiRacism can redeem us.

For Whites this is a self-destructive ideology, but is the price for White elites' wealth & privilege.

Princeton Is Not Racist, but Race-Obsessed nationalreview.com/2020/09/prince…
How did #AntiFascism & #AntiRacism, which used to be such noble causes, become so degraded?

Nationalism & socialism were once also noble causes, which is why they were incorporated into the very name of Hitler's Nazi party.

A noble cause confers moral authority & POWER.
We are ALL anti-fascists & anti-racists now, because anyone who isn't must be a fascist or a racist, i.e. a baddy.

The only way to understand this is through #EvolotionaryPsychology & #sociobiology, which social & political scientists tend to reject - as fascist & racist.

What to do, having discovered a truth, which professional academic truth seeks simply ignore or dismiss?

The truth I discovered is this: in overreaction to the evils of Nazism & its ideology of racial purity & supremacy, academics went to opposite but equally insane extremes.
These "equally insane" extremes constitute what is now referred to as post-racial multiculturalism, DIVERSITY, Inclusion & #AntiRacism, which is deeply Orwellian, & yet championed by many winners of the #OrwellPrize, @DAaronovitch amongst them.

The religion of #AntiRacism serves the British state & establishment (i.e. #BigBrother) as an instrument of socio-political rewards, intimidation & control, which supplements the religion which equates state & nation, which is how we are tricked into loving BigB.
We are ALL - rich & poor, Black & White, high & low IQ alike - dependent on Big Brother & #TheMatrix of state & capital, & thus enslaved to them.

As in the film, The Matrix, we are unaware of our enslavement, until red pilled, which at the moment I am the only one who is.
If I am mistaken about being the only one who is red pilled, please let me know, so that we can work together in red pilling others, & then cooperate in creating a new world order of #ContraPot, as an alternative to the existing world order of Big Brother's #MeltingPot.

As modern, secular heirs of the medieval clergy & cognitive elite, academics (not so much in the natural as in the social sciences & humanities) are imposing the religion of anti-racism, post-racial multiculturalism & DIVERSITY on the West.

This is how they rule us!
We are not really free. We do not have government of the people, by the people, for the people, but of the elites, by the elites, for the elites.

We are ALL enslaved - rich & poor, Black & White, dumb & bright - to #BigBrother & #TheMatrix of state & capital.
Who is Big Brother?

He is the abstract manifestation of evolved human nature (largely subconscious), which has been corrupted by civilisation to facilitate society's self-exploitation to the narrow & short-sighted personal advantage of its wealthy & cognitive elites.

#AntiRacism is a religion, which now dominates the West & needs to be taken as seriously as you would need to take Islam, if you lived in Saudi Arabia.

Religion derives from Latin, religare, meaning to bind people together, & is thus a source of POWER.
Americans fought a civil war over the religion of the Union, which was, & became an ever greater source of power that has been abused throughout American history. If the Confederacy had won, power would still have been abused, of course, but in two separate states.
The American constitution & the rule of law mercifully limit the abuse of power, but not nearly enough to achieve a humane & sustainable society.

The religion of Anti-Racism plays out within the religion of the Union & of every other sovereign western state.
