The white mans sickness.
    #2520905 - 04/03/04 08:42 AM (12 years, 8 months ago)

I re-reading a great book, the Mutant Message Down Under. In it these two well to do white folks are discussing the aborigines over afternoon tea. They (the aborigines)are 3rd class citizens, poor, and can be seen desperatly huffing paint thinner on the street. When asked wasnt anyone trying to help to do somthing about it?, the gentleman replied:

"Yes, it is sad. But nothing can be done. You dont understand the Aborigines. They are primitive, wild, bush people. We have offered to educate them. Missionaries have spent years trying to convert them. In the past they were cannibals. Now they still do not want to turn loose of their customs and old beliefs. Most prefer the hardship of the desert. The Outback is hard country, but these are the world's hardest people. Those who do straddle the two cultures are rarely successful. It is true they are a dying race. Their population is declining by their own free will. They are hopelessly illiterate people with no ambition or drive for success. After two hundred years they still dont fit in. Whats more, they dont try. In business they are unreliable and undependable, they act like they cant tell time. Belive me there is nothing you can do to inspire them."


I believe it is this one thing that is the cause of all the worlds problems, oh this and religion of course :smile:

But this attitude has to stop. We need to learn somthing from our Tribal Elders. We need to learn alot from them. Or risk extinction ourselves.

yes. the takers have begun to muscle out the last vestiges of peoples who are actually evolutionarily stable. i often ask myslef, however, where would THOSE people have been, in another thousand years? is the road to "progress" possible to avoid???

the takers you say? Once you become a taker or are born into a taker society it's hard to even understand leaver society completely.

I'm not sure how I feel about this... i DO KNOW, that I feel much regret and guilt about what my white man ancestors did to expand 'their' empire ....... I wish there was a way to even the odds somehow today..... I think the fact is, america is owned by white people........ this is changing, and i'd like to see it happen faster, but it may not....... kinda hard to start off life when you get treated like shit and have your kids beaten and sold before your eyes.... and then you work your entire life just to buy them back, and die a slave, knowing they have a hard 'free' life ahead of them...... Thats just in relation to blacks.... I wont even go into the NATIVE americans who REALLY owned this continent before we shot them all cold blooded, and used other LES subtle tactics like small pox blankets.......... FUCKING AMERICA....... im SOOO goona be in canada or europe when im out of college.

The sickness is simply this...MATERIALISM. That is the white mans sickness, and it is highly infectious.
