America, the melting pot…
Let us reflect for a moment where the American mindset originated. Indeed, our culture is unique in many ways, similar to some, and not others, familiar and yet alien. Today, we hear very intelligent people give some amazing ideas on just what assimilation is, and what the American frame of mind has become, originated from every corner of the world:
“But then I came to the conclusion that no, while there may be an immigration problem, it isn’t really a serious problem. The really serious problem is assimilation.” -Samuel P. Huntington
“We must insist on assimilation – immigration without assimilation is an invasion. We need to tell folks who want to come here, they need to come here legally. They need to learn English, adopt our values, roll up their sleeves and get to work.”-Bobby Jindal
“The good Jew is ritually observant and resists assimilation, in some sense living apart, never fitting comfortably into American or any other society.” -Elliott Abrams
“Secular thinkers have no more been able to work free of the centuries-old Judaeo-Christian culture than Christian theologians were able to work free of their inheritance of classical and pagan thought. The process… has not been the deletion and replacement of religious ideas but rather the assimilation and reinterpretation of religious ideas.” -M. H. Abrams
“Miami is a melting pot in which none of the stones melt. They rattle around.” -Tom Wolfe
“On the outside, America looks like this great melting pot, but on the inside, there’s this segregation in American cinema. Why does a Latino film have to be for Latinos? Why is a black film just for black people? Why?” -Gurinder Chadha
Shame, for being you…
We have been shamed into thinking that our traditions, our language, our race, our cultural ethics are to be forgotten as unimportant. We are pushed and pulled to further coexist, integrate no matter how dangerous is the opposing culture. The white men have bent over backwards to assimilate with every culture to the point of intellectual suicide, and yet few other cultures have reciprocated. Of course, not every race or religion weighs integration the same. Some have developed a duality, maintaining culture with family and friends, while developing an American mindset separately. They speak the language, and live the culture at home and in a separate community of like mind, while incorporating typical Western values in business and associations outside of that realm. Hispanics, Indians, and Orientals have developed a complex system to both incorporate into society, and yet still retaining their original culture.
Of course, there are no absolutes when studying these systems. Some will try harder to assimilate to the host culture than others, depending on a positive or negative memory of their parent culture. Others, for reasons only history will furnish, come to America for one reason only, to conquer it.
Culture, struggling to exist…
1.) Of the three generalized cultures above, Hispanics, Indians, and Orientals, two powerful generalizations are of note. All of them help each other in several ways, monetarily and emotionally, but the reason is a powerful one, all have strong family ties. Without that, a culture will quickly disintegrate.
2.) Of all of the countries I have visited, India assimilation stands out from all the rest. Generally, Christians, Muslims, Hindis, and Buddhists, coexist, and yet, each of these religions, and their wide variety of associating cultures, strive to retain their edifying traditions, and to keep them intact in the minds and hearts of their children. We can not understand, or judge an entire culture, by studying just a few.
3.) Of all of the cultures vying for a place in the American sun, most would agree that the black man has had the most problem finding viability in our collective mindset, and the difficulties they have encountered was not always their fault. Still, they are responsible for what they do, and yet, without a doubt, have been at times, set up to fail. But then, every culture has been attacked by immoral, promoted violence, hate and wrath instead of love and tolerance, and unless that culture has the strength to resist it, to withstand the opposing force, they will be controlled and dominated. There are many ways to enslave a culture, and slavery of the spirit by voluntary servitude is the most powerful. We can not understand, or judge an entire culture, by studying just a few.
4.) Just as there have been abject cultural failures, so too have there been phenomenal successes. No culture, no religion, has accomplished as much in the American collective then the Jew. Arriving mostly from Europe in the last 150 years, they found our civil liberties and a Republic based on Constitutional Law to be futile ground. By the beginning of the twenty century, they had already displaced many of the typically gentile corporations with powerful Jewish influence. The Jewish owned banking system displacement by the Federal Reserve, and the takeover of our Money supply by Jewish owned Central Banks from Europe, catapulted Jews to dominate the media, including Hollywood, newspapers, and magazines; the building of armaments for war, a banking cartel that now spans the entire world, and mega conglomerate corporations from oil and gas, agriculture, pharmaceuticals, land and infrastructure, and much more. Though the complexity of failure takes study, so too does the complexity of success. We can not understand, or judge an entire culture, by studying just a few. But without a doubt, government, and those institutions who control it, play a large part in what mindset a culture accepts as normal, and standard. and no other culture has influenced the American mindset then the European Jew, from advertising, secular marketing, publicity and government lobbying, even the footnotes of the Oxford bible carried by Evangelicals by covered wagon, was influenced by the Jew. If Christian values, like forgive you enemy, for instance, is not displayed in a secular media whose religious mindset is revenge and vengeance, those traits will diminish. If irresponsibility is manifest by government intrusion and incursion of cultural and moral norms to be secular or amoral, that culture will diminish, becoming more vacant, confused, weaker, and thus, more reliant… Christianity has been destroyed in Europe, and grand cathedrals are being auctioned off for high end condominiums. What could be destroying the Christian faith, if no another, more powerful one?
A description of a white man is complex. In the American frame of reference a typical description of a white man is one of European decent, the same race as the European Jew, who were converts. In this context, however, the white man, as referred to, are overwhelmingly Christian, and until recently, within the last fifty years, could have held the same attributes of paragraph one and three. In just two generations, since ww2, typical white culture had declined dramatically, along with the Christian Faith. Only one country has been nurturing and home-growing Christianity, Russia..
White straight Christian men have been attacked and shamed into thinking they are narcissistic, egocentric, with overt attempts at shaming for a variety of reasons, especially from the Progressive Left. Typically, the traditional white man was family oriented; manifestly moral and ethical from the teaching of Jesus Christ; responsible and accountable for their actions by cultural ideals formulated for thousands of years, like Christian morals and ethics; selflessness and self sacrifice for family; altruistic agape’ love as taught by the New Testament and the writings of Paul; honor and principle based on character and reputation; philanthropic; and altruistic. These characteristics have declined dramatically, and again: We can not understand, or judge an entire culture, by studying just a few.
Loving yourself… Is that selfish?
It seems that no matter how many people die to prove a point, we keep pushing the envelope of collectivism, even if it means extinction. Our manipulators know this well, and use it to control both sides, as the further we are divided, the more control they have on us all. For thousands of years the European peoples developed a culture advanced and of high quality, as did most all cultures in every country. I propose here that indeed, a collective society is strong, but only if the leaders are not using our natural differences to advance their own agenda, as is quite evident today. Of course, many people came to America, but it was Christian Europeans who designed and dreamed this country into existence, and since that time every culture has attempted to take it away. Some of these cultures have even used our own moral and ethics to dominate us, so trusting, while the writing in other religions give them cart blanch authority to annihilate us, by any means necessary. I am not talking about the displacement of one government with another, or a new law or amendment, but the veritable obliteration of any culture not their own, the death of what they consider animals. Read Deuteronomy, Leviticus, and the Koran.
Deuteronomy7:1-2: When the Lord your God brings you into the land you are entering to possess and drives out before you many nations . . . then you must destroy them totally. Make no treaty with them, and show them no mercy.
20:10-17: When you march up to attack a city, make its people an offer of peace. If they accept and open their gates, all the people in it shall be subject to forced labor and shall work for you. If they refuse to make peace and they engage you in battle, lay siege to that city. When the Lord your God delivers it into your hand, put to the sword all the men in it. As for the women, the children, the livestock and everything else in the city, you may take these as plunder for yourselves. . . . This is how you are to treat all the cities that are at a distance from you and do not belong to the nations nearby.
However, in the cities of the nations the Lord your God is giving you as an inheritance, do not leave alive anything that breathes. Completely destroy them—the Hittites, Amorites, Canaanites, Perizzites, Hivites and Jebusites—as the Lord your God has commanded you.
Stand up to anything who wants to assimilate you into the collective. You have a reason for being, and value, and your culture can teach and edify, nourish and nurture. Let no culture dominate and dismantle your heritage. It is there, in the folds of what you are as a person. Listen to the words of your ancestors, our founding fathers, where you will find the truth and courage to forge ahead, by your own volition. Be proud yourself, no matter what color you are, no matter what religion, or society, and let no one judge you. You have a beauty in you, a truth in you that came from mother’s knee. Do not let anything take that away. Look at yourself in the mirror. There is no one like you on the planet, and yet you are part of a tribe too, your tribe. Revel in that, and never betray who you are.
Ken LaRive – Facets: It’s a simple but beautiful metaphor. Our soul is likened to an uncut diamond, pure, perfect, and unrealized. Each learned experience cleaves a facet on its face, and leaves it changed forever. Through this facet, this clear window, new light, new questions and ideas take shape and form. This process is our reason for being …
