Re: Race versus culture

Americans too can become fascist, and Americans already have an anti-intellectual fascist as president. Of course I disagree as I see Donald Trump as a very great man who will save the productive class upon who a free democracy depends, and, which is to say the same thing, defend the culture of the...

Re: Race versus culture

My hypothesis throughout this discussion has been that the core values of cultures are extraordinarily stable (...) It is well supported by social sciences, anthropology and history. Living things are integrated and holistic. Just as elements cannot easily be added or subtracted from a peoples cult...

Re: Should I enter the reading room with my backpack?

Speaking for myself, I wouldn't be ashamed one way or the other, but i would find it inconvenient if I had to go back down six floors so I'd myself probably leave the bag downstairs. One counseling way of solving this is to ask yourself what feelings you are having and what needs those feelings indi...

Re: Race versus culture

And yet we still find Celts in the South and the Anglo-Saxon genetic compliment not more than 40%? If you read all three articles you will have to by now have realized your error and that the Anglo-Saxons did not displace a Celtic people as you had believed but instead a pre-Roman migration of Germ...

Re: Race versus culture

The following quote from Cicero "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers r...

Re: Race versus culture

Also, whites make up 16% of the world's population, blacks make up 15%. If there as many blacks as whites, why is Africa so technologically behind? What do you mean by "technologically behind"? Maybe she means something like how there's no sewage systems, or how the electricity goes off all the tim...

Re: Racial basis of spiritual traditions

... [ C, + sing/pl verb ] a group of people who share the same language, history, characteristics, etc.: The British are an island race. Right!
