I just wanted to get some thoughts about why I hate the media’s agenda so much. Of late, I have felt less and less inclined to watch the media and hear the news. One of the sad things about a democracy is that we rely upon the news to determine our political action. Hearing about the state of the culture, the efficiency of political parties in aiding the common good, and how laws negatively or positively affect society determines how we vote, when we rally, and the positions and arguments we articulate. People will generally apply their political philosophy, ethics, and personality to new problems; but, the only way we learn about new problems so that we may apply the above facets of ourselves is through the media. For which reason, it behooves the media to be as objective as possible. There is a real need for media groups containing both conservatives and liberals so that each political ideology can correct the excesses of the other.
Another sad thing about the present state of affairs lies in how much aid and comfort the media’s culture gives to collectivists. In the above video, Sargon of Akkad well describes how both Antifa and the Alt-Right are benefiting from stopping intelligent dialogue. Essentially, conservatives are collectively being dubbed fascists, and liberals are forced to conform to socialist group think or driven out of the Left on a rail. And, in all liberal activism, the greatest villain is the Christian, conservative, heterosexual man of European descent. Liberal college professors especially target this group for shaming. I might add that a close relative, while in post graduate education, received his worst grades from two liberal black professors. Another relative of mine, while visiting her daughter in North Carolina, was actually called a fascist–despite being a rather rotund, old Hispanic woman! And, one can point to the recent Democratic Presidential Convention as a public example of the Left courting the support of minorities while speaking ill of whites–and law and order, for that matter.
Surprise! Surprise! The extreme Left is every bit as racist as the extreme Right. Somehow, people have been hoodwinked into thinking that giving privileges to colored persons while demonizing whites is morally superior to privileging whites and demonizing colored persons. Guess what! These are morally equivalent positions, and the only means people have for tipping the scale one way or the other involves claiming that one side has been more victimized than the other. The fact of the matter is that privileging Race X at the expense of Race Y because Race Y had victimized Race X creates a situation where Race Y becomes victimized by Race X. At which point, do you think Race X will give up their privileges in order to make amends to Race Y? Probably not, unless Race X is subjected to the same propaganda campaign to which the whites are currently subjected.
Let’s speak specifically of America. America currently exists as a multiracial country: the American race can only be perceived as one people of many races intermingling and associating freely under a common political system, political heritage, and history. The nearest country to us in this regard is none other than the Roman Empire, which gave citizenship to everyone as far north as Hadrian’s Wall, as far south as Numidia, as far west as the Pillars of Heracles, and as far east as Caspian Sea. As large as the Roman Empire was, the United States of America is almost three hundred thousand square miles larger than Rome at its fullest extent and incorporates people from the entire world into its citizen body.
Part of Rome’s success lay in giving people across its extent the full rights of citizenship. If they had privileged their own race, the Latins, at the expense of all the rest, they could never have extended beyond Italy: their Italian allies, first and foremost, would have constantly be seeking independence from the Latins. Some did during the Second Punic War, in which Hannibal almost destroyed the Roman Republic. We ought to remember Rome and strive to keep a mindset of racial equality and equality under the law. Anything less will see an America doomed to civil war and fragmentation within fifty years.
