Stuart Basden Co-founder Extinction Rebellion says XR not about Climate (that's just a symptom of a toxic system that has infected the ways we relate to each other as humans and to all life)"

XR is about #decolonialism

XR about #decolonialism: Basden says "how European ‘civilisation’ spread around the globe thru cruelty & violence over the last 600 years of colonialism, where the roots of the infections go much further back"

Basden #XR: "#Europeans spread their toxicity around the world, they brought torture, genocide, carnage & suffering to the ends of the earth. Their cultural myths justified the horrors, idea that indigenous people were animals (not humans)"

“YouTube to Ax #Marxist Videos that Urge/Imply Robbery/Murder of Capitalists for ‘Wage Slavery/Exploitation.’ (If you believe this, you must be a “logic extremist,” who draws inferences. YouTube says only that it wants to remove extremism/hate speech. nyti.ms/2KwWPPd)s
Ayn Rand has identified “extremism” as an “anti-concept.” (So is “hate speech.”) A concept is supposed to refer to a class of concretes on the basis of their most fundamental common characteristic that distinguishes them from the next broader class to which they belong.
For example, “Man is the rational animal.” Rational is the most fundamental common characteristic that distinguishes human beings from the wider category “animal.”

»#YuriBezmenov may well go down in history as a #saint by the #survivors of the generations to come.

His statements about the global “#communist agenda” offers an opportunity for students of #history, #philosophy and #economics - world wide - to take note of #reality and to

.. reflect on the identity of their intellectual enemy, the dynamics of #capitalism in economics, and the role of #violence in politics.

Firstly, what is the “western identity”? From my understanding .. the #western identity has been shaped primarily by what it has resisted:

namely monarchic #despotism, authoritative #collectivism, and the infringement on the sovereignty of the #individual. You can even say that, to an extent, #Christianity itself followed from an already existing identity (i.e. the #Socratic divination of the individual).

@LordAubrey @ClarasStorm Glauben Sie ernsthaft, dass solche Entwicklungen von nur einer (zugegebenermaßen sehr bekannten und symbolhaften) Person gesteuert werden?

To mark the occasion of #LaborDay2019, I will transcribe an interesting, 91-year old #German text on #Marxism that has never entered the #internet before this post of mine. (I tried quite a lot to find the text, to no avail.) I will manually transcribe it, then translate it.
..
..I won't give the source, and also won't say WHY I don't give the source.

I repeat that it is a literal quote (from a 1928 publication), probably published during the #WeimarRepublic:

"#Marximus .. [ist] .. staats-, gesellschaft- und kulturzerstörend .. gegen jeden Staat,..
..jede Gesellschaft, jede Kultur ... ist #Marxismus ein #Aufruhr der #Eigensucht
gegen das #Gemeinwohl, also das Gegenteil jedes wahren #Sozialismus, denn Sozialismus muss stets das Wohl des Ganzen dem des Teiles voranstellen ... seine „Vorfurcht“ [sic; see dictionary entry

(1) The anti-white sentiment in #SouthAfrica is an aspect of #tribalism.

Outsiders see it as racial, because they r not aware of the endemic internecine conflicts which occurred inter-tribally - long before the white Boers arrived in South Africa.

It's an economic power play
(2) which would unfold against any land-owners should the white #Boers not be there.

It manifests itself as racism, but in reality is an economically-motivated #tribalism (you have - we don't - we take) with #Marxist elements seeded into the movement to foment hate and violence
(3) Complicated #Marxist dynamics, fueled by #tribalism (which as an ethnic phenomenon can encapsulate racism) - but base motivations reside in economic differences versus color or tribe - despite what alternative state media in SA maintains

#anthrotalk #HiCharles #moralrelativsm v. #culturalrelativism v. #linguisticrelativism
THREAD. I am surprised to see a "senior" anthropologist confuse the difference b/t moral and cultural relativism. Let's discuss and find some important examples! Anthros Let's talk.
2/ An argument was made that it is ok when discussing non-normative "sub-subaltern" cultures based on the principles of "cultural relativism" one should not "judge the judgers." @transscribe
This came up in a debate in med/psych anthro over the weekend when a Whyte American prof used the word "hermaphrodite" instead of "intersex" in a global call for conference papers and book chapters. Their rationale is in India this term is used.

Marxists use "controlled opposition" to create political drama - people like Kessler, Hitler, and "weev" who are politically ambiguous. Links from new NYT left-racist editor Sarah Jeong to "weev" are like fresh deer-track to us commie hunters. #Marxist

One might ask how actors such as "weev" are controlled. I'm not going to say right now, but you will figure it out by the end of this thread. It's a Question you can think about.
First, some background on who this woman is, who was just hired as an editor at the Failing New York Times. Note that she is being hired as the LEAD WRITER on technology. I kid you not. But wait - it gets better.
