Societies have always been dominated by their elites via a strategy of divide & rule, & although they pretend to be, Western "democracies" are no different. It is just more subtle than in earlier times & in non-democratic countries.

Allow me to explain HOW we're divided & ruled:
I think it was #WinstonChurchill who famously said that British democracy was deeply flawed, but better than any other system yet devised, or words to that effect.

I agree with him, but while he saw it as a reason for maintaining the status quo, I do not.
Churchill wanted to maintain the status quo because it served him personally extremely well, as it does many others.

However, the status quo is inherently unjust, inhuman & - most importantly - unsustainable on our finite, vulnerable & overpopulated planet, SpaceshipEarth.

I welcome Eric's attempt to understand American society, although I can't really relate to it. It's no good leaving it to social scientists, who haven't a clue, despite it being their supposed area of academic expertise.
I too have put a lot of effort into trying to understand my own & closely related societies like America, i.e. the West, which are the only ones I know anything about.

My most important insight is that the academics we look to as authorities on understanding society don't.
That may seem trivial, but it's not, because we look to academics as authorities in their particular areas of supposed expertise, & for good reason.

We look to astronomers to explain the heavens to us, which they can now do extremely well.

“France is still not a democracy, we had the revolution, proclaimed a republic but there’s still an aristocracy, it’s the intelligentsia, and it has had a special status. Anything goes.”…
France, like Britain & all so-called #NationStates, is an Orwellian construct of lies, deceit & a regime of rewards & intimidation; a mercenary #PatronState deceitfully posing as a nation, in order to legitimise itself, its ruling elites & the immense power they wield & abuse.
I haven't spoken out much about France, because I don't speak French, despite having a French great-grandmother, & don't know the country well. But I identify with the Native French as fellow #FirstNationEuropeans, who belong to my #NationRace.

The West has always been dominated by a moral supremacist elite, which in medieval times was organised in the Catholic church.

It's modern, secular & decentralised counterpart is the church of #AntiRacism, which has replaced #OriginalSin with #WhiteGuilt.
Although decentralised, the Church of Anti-Racism derives much of its spurious moral authority from #SocialScienceAcademia, which, in the aftermath of Nazism, embraced a racial ideology which went to opposite but equally insane extremes.
In place of the Nazi extremes of racial purity & supremacy, Anti-Racist ideology goes to the opposite extremes of promoting #RacialMixing (DIVERSITY) & White racial self-denial, self-contempt & self-hatred. Anyone opposing this self-destructive ideology is demonised as a RACIST.

#JodiShaw is doing a great job of helping to expose the madness of White racial self-denial & self-contempt, which now dominates, not just #SmithCollege, where she works, but wider, Western society at large. @Smith_Surge via @YouTube
The madness which has befallen Western civilisation in the form of Post-Racial #Multiculturalism, DIVERSITY, Inclusion & #AntiRacism is rooted in #CriticalRaceTheory & is related to the madness responsible for WW1, in which "victory" paved the way for the rise of Nazism & WW2.

The #GreatReplacement #WhiteSelfGenocide, the #WarOnWhiteness.

These are all dismissed by most academics, politicians, the MSM & #Wikipedia as far-right & White supremacist conspiracy theories, just as they dismiss the fact that we are committing #CivilisationalSuicide.
#GlobalWarming is a SYMPTOM of the CANCER that is our growth-dependent, grossly materialistic, mercenary, rapacious & driven global economy, which is inherently unsustainable on our finite, vulnerable & overpopulated planet, #SpaceshipEarth.
Many of us recognised this cancer in the 1970s, when a number of books brought it to public attention.

I expected our leaders & their academic advisors to rise to the challenge, but instead they went into denial, putting the economy into super-global & turbo mode.

#SocialScience in general & #PoliticalScience in particular are failing SOCIETY & civilisation itself, because, in overreaction to the evils of Nazism, they lost their way, or rather, they failed to find it, & are thus now leading us towards a precipice.
It is not too late for the present generation of social science academics to correct the mistakes made by their predecessors. But first they have to recognise them.
In a misconceived, knee-jerk, #NeverAgain response to the Nazis having manipulated & abused German tribalism for their own evil purposes, human tribalism itself was demonised, which is like demonising male sexuality for its role in rape.

This was madness.

This is how the madness of mass immigration & the Orwellian ideology of Post-Racial #Multiculturalism, DIVERSITY, Inclusion & #AntiRacism have been imposed on the West, but by a minority wielding state & academic authority on a susceptible majority. #AschExperiment
The Asch Experiment demonstrates how strongly we are influenced by our peers, but we are even more strongly influenced by those in positions of power & authority, esp. when there is no alternative to them, as under the medieval church, or today under state & academic authority.
It's important to understand the motivations of those imposing this madness on us, which I do not believe are malevolent, but simply misguided. It began as a #NeverAgain response to the evils of Nazism, its exploitation of human tribalism, & ideology of racial purity & supremacy.

"I mean maybe people should just stop being racist"
There has been an #OrwellianShift in what it means to be RACIST, which enables a moral supremacist priesthood & its lay helpers to demonise human nature, just as it is in the biblical story of the Fall (Genesis 3), as a means of socio-political rewards, intimidation & control.
Racism used to mean hatred or contempt for people of a different race, or racial supremacism regarding one's own race, which the Nazis & supporters of Jim Crow provided classic examples of.

Now, even the most mild forms of racial prejudice, conscious or not, are deemed RACIST.

Americans who believe in America are misguided, as is anyone who believes in their country, all of which are Orwellian constructs, based on lies, deceit & a particular regime of rewards & intimidation.

There are no genuine nations or #UnitedNations.
If we are to create a new world order, which our very survival demands we do, we must organise OURSELVES, peacefully, legally & grassroots-democratically, into genuine nations, with the existing states continuing to enforce the rule of law & non-violence.
We need a framework within which to do this, for which purpose I propose the creation of a new political party & movement called #ContraPot, based on a philosophy of divide & self-rule. The existing world order of nation states is based on an Orwellian strategy of divide & rule. Image

A truly virtuous person does not virtue-signal as a means of gaining social status & personal advantage, but we can't help knowing that being seen to be virtuous is advantageous.
To want to be virtuous is a good thing, but all too often, good intentions are misconceived & thus pave the way to hell.

This is what is happening in regard to anti-fascism & anti-racism, & the ideology of post-racial multiculturalism & DIVERSITY they have given rise to.
The ideology of post-racial multiculturalism & DIVERSITY turns Nazi racial ideology on its head, going to opposite, but equally insane extremes, & serving Big Brother & his minions as the perfect means of virtue-signalling their moral authority over others.

This is a very moving & important piece by a black woman whose ancestors were raped by white men & thus has a good deal of European blood coursing in her veins.
Nowadays, far more white women are raped by black men than the other way around (although non-PC, if not down-right racist, to mention it), but are not normally forced to bear their children.

We need a deep & meaningful conversation about RACE, which we have not yet had.
The reason we haven't yet had this conversation is not just because it is difficult & painful for many, like Ms. Williams, but also because the STATE insists on defining limits to it, much as the medieval church did in regard to discussions about God.

Ultimately it is #SocialScienceAcademia, like a modern, secular, universal church, imposing the Orwellian ideology of post-racial multiculturalism & DIVERSITY on society, which its clergy (1000s of ordinary academics) are also beholden to, for employment & advancement. @epkaufm
It would be very useful to know the identity of the #POPESofDIVERSITY, i.e. those senior, authoritative, academics (living & dead) who are absolutely committed to their ideology, so that we don't waste time trying to reason with them, but focus our attention on the less dogmatic.
The social sciences are where they are, which is trapped in a pre-Darwinian dark age. All that matters is getting them to emerge from this dark age as quickly as possible, so that they can be a help, rather than a hindrance, in solving our civilisation's existential problems.
