02 11 10 - 02:32Poor Jesus Christ, wanting to destroy the Romans, came up with a formula: all people are equal and the meek will inherit the earth.
This made empires neurotic. Instead of knowing that each person had a place, such empires treated all people as equal. As a result, they encouraged the migration of individuals anywhere they chose.
Of course, by denying context, they set up a time bomb. The neurotic among a wealthy population invite in newcomers with open arms, mainly trying to become part of The Meek so they can enter heaven. The savvier people are less sanguine about it, knowing that a flood from poor to rich results in dilution of the rich, and destruction of what made that wealth.
Fast-forward 2000 years:
Migrants in Europe, the United States and many other parts of the world are subjected to the worst forms of racial discrimination and xenophobia, a U.N. independent investigator said Monday. - AP
What do you call a person of poor origins in political office? A leftist -- always.
They don't want to believe that a mistake was made, or a series of them, leading to that situation. They'd rather believe it's arbitrary, and they've spawned a huge market for people who sell them that illusion (Jared Diamond, we're looking at you here).
Now they're finding out that while they've conned many Europeans, both secular and Christian, into wanting to accept the meek, not everyone is so deluded. And so they complain, as a prelude to justifying violence.
Europeans and Americans, it's time to get your head out of the Jesus-illusion. It has nothing to do with spirituality. It is just pure politics of subversion, that is to say, it is intended to destroy...
Christianity is one view of the spiritual truth of humanity. One earth, one humanity; we describe this earth and this humanity many different ways, and spirituality is no exception. Like we can describe an elephant in Hindi as well as in French, we describe spirituality with Hinduism as well as Catholicism.
Many of us started our careers as violent blasphemers because we disagree with how Christians view the world, because much of Christianity is too liberal to be realistic. If you really want to worship this world, and God or The Gods, you need to be matching your spiritual outlook to your material and logical ones.
A good start would be finally, after 200 years of horse shit, some honesty about immigration and race.
