Loving Slavery in 2020

The Donald Trump presidency reminds me of what occurred, on a smaller scale of course, when Pauline Hanson was elected to the Australian Senate back in the 1990's.

Like Donald Trump, Pauline Hanson was critical of Australia losing its sovereignty to global organisations and thus she spoke of an "Australian First" approach.

She opposed "multiculturalism" because she understood that the concept of "all cultures being equal" would undermine "western culture" and therefore "western society."

Western culture with its concepts of "individual liberty" and the "rule of law," developed and inherited from charters like the 1215 Magna Carta and 1688 English Bill of Rights and then further developed and expounded in the United States with the Declaration of Independence, Articles of Confederation, Constitution and appended Bill of Rights, all set the fundamental basis for individual freedom as opposed to being ruled by an elite class, whether it be a king, oligarchy, council of wise men or even the rabid mob.

It was Western culture which, for the first time in world history, called for the abolition of slavery, a long standing world-wide institution going back thousands of years. It was through the philosophical concepts of recognising "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness" as being fundamental Creator endowed unalienable rights that slavery was seen for the abomination that it was. It was both the English and Americans whom first banned the slave trade and used their naval ships to enforce such a ban. It certainly took time in the USA and the loss of many lives before slavery was finally abolished. Such a value in a culture certainly makes that culture of better value. All cultures do not have the same value. Individual people do, but a people is clearly distinct from the culture they adhere to. Cultures generally reflect a set of values and the better values of any culture ought be upheld with the detrimental values being rejected. It has nothing to do with any physical characteristic like skin tone, average height or bone structure.

A tactic often used today is the conflation of multi-culturalism with that of multi-racialism. Many people whom are critical of the undermining of the tenets of Western Culture by the imposition of foreign cultures are often labelled as a "racist." Race has nothing to do with it and anyone who thinks it through knows this. Human genetics and human traditions/practices/worldviews are obviously not one and the same thing. To conflate the two, as many do, is an artful means of preventing people from actually reasoning through facts.

The inculcating of fear into people as it pertains to addressing particular subjects is a very effective means of controlling the public mind. By mislabeling people as "racists" and then through a constant repetition of that lie through establishment media, education and political institutions it is possible force people to self-censor their own valid viewpoints because those viewpoints become associated with an unpleasant fiction. The average person, having no desire to be embroiled in conflict, will then simply keep their views to themselves as opposed to having to defend themselves in an attempt to disassociate themselves with the mislabel. It simply isn't worth the effort in daily life to most people and thus a valid and logical viewpoint is effectively eliminated from public discourse through mislabeling and the subsequent peer pressure of the those lacking critical thought.

Some cultures are CLEARLY more efficient, just and equitable than others. Certainly Western Culture is not perfect, and we ought reflect and work on correcting any inadequacies as individuals, but to completely undermine Western Culture, as is being presently done on many fronts, is certainly societal suicide.

Pauline Hanson, due her inarticulate and simplistic understanding, wasn't able to speak to the underlying philosophical reasoning of her views and thus she was easily attacked and labelled a racist. Pauline Hanson stated in her maiden speech...

<<<My view on issues is based on commonsense, and my experience as a mother of four children, as a sole parent, and as a businesswoman running a fish and chip shop. I won the seat of Oxley largely on an issue that has resulted in me being called a racist. That issue related to my comment that Aboriginals received more benefits than non-Aboriginals.

We now have a situation where a type of reverse racism is applied to mainstream Australians by those who promote political correctness and those who control the various taxpayer funded 'industries' that flourish in our society servicing Aboriginals, multiculturalists and a host of other minority groups. In response to my call for equality for all Australians, the most noisy criticism came from the fat cats, bureaucrats and the do-gooders. They screamed the loudest because they stand to lose the most – their power, money and position, all funded by ordinary Australian taxpayers.>>>Pauline Hanson, Maiden Speech to Parliament, 1996

The parallels between Pauline Hanson and Donald Trump are quite startling the more I think about it.

It is the intellectuals, bureaucrats, and the do-gooders whom make a living off dividing society into "groups" and "identities" and then attempt to bring about "equal outcomes" through the social engineering of central planning. Of course the implementation of social engineering requires authoritarian big government to enforce such an agenda, the intellectuals plans must overrule the plans of individuals and that takes both social conditioning and force.

Both Donald Trump and Pauline Hanson stood on opposition of the vast and powerful special interests of the media, bureaucracies and intellectual elitists of this world. They stood with the common people for common sense. I clearly see that now. Neither of them are right on all things, both lacked understanding of many things, just as we all do, yet they were certainly "for the people" as opposed to being "for the status quo of the intellectual elite."

In both cases the media, bureaucracy, intellectuals have vehemently attacked Donald Trump and Pauline Hanson using buzz words and catch phrases and have therefore been able to completely avoid and misdirect the minds of the public away from the actual sentiment being expressed. Much of the general public, in response, simply parrot the same deceptive rhetoric due to lacking any real capability to critically think for themselves.

Edward Bernays, the man whom coined the term 'Public Relations,' was absolutely correct when he wrote...

<<<The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country.>>> Edward Bernay's, Propaganda, Chapter 1, Organizing Chaos, 1928

Add a lack of attention spans and social media to the mix and it's clearly evident that the world is ripe to march off headlong into a dystopian technological mind-numbed slavery. When people lose the capacity for critical thought as well as lose their moral compass and live like animals they will be governed by tyrants and just like in Aldous Huxley's "Brave New World" they will CRY OUT FOR IT AND LOVE IT. We have seen that in 2020.
