Letters by a modern St. Ferdinand III about cults

Gab@StFerdinandIII -

Plenty of cults exist - every cult has its 'religious dogma', its idols, its 'prophets', its 'science', its 'proof' and its intolerant liturgy of demands.  Cults everywhere:  Corona, 'The Science' or Scientism, Islam, the State, the cult of Gender Fascism, Marxism, Darwin and Evolution, Globaloneywarming, Changing Climate, Abortion...

Cultures are not relative

Stone-age societies and fascist regimes were and are barbaric.

by StFerdIII

According to the media and the United Nations multi-cultural jamboree, all cultures are relative. This is a fascinating lie. So the Western world, which has given those in advanced countries the lives that despotic Kings of the ancient world could only dream about, is just as relatively good as say the fascist regimes that govern China, Russia, or those wonderful pagans deep in the rain forests of South America and various Asian islands. I guess the West is just as relatively great as the Islamic world which has given exactly nothing to create the modern world political-economy - unless you count pagan fascism and unremitting terror, as an expression of cultural goodness. The Multi-Cult club loves cultural relativity since they equate spicy food, stylish clothes, old bricks and rocks, oral sagas, and superstition as equivalent to a civilization. What a fascinating load of rubbish. The most powerful moral, economic, political, military and civilizational force in world history has been Western culture.

Obviously some cultures and empires are ancient and had cities and developed economies pre-dating Western power. But they were despotic, Orientalist in nature or completely barbaric. Most of these ancient ‘cultures’ were stone-age groupings, or at best, iron age societies. Only in the West, in Jewish culture and in ancient Greece and Rome, were the basic ideas of modern society developed – freedom, constitutional division of powers, ownership of private property, family oriented structures, personal spiritual enlightenment, civic regulations, and the destruction of gangs, tribes or arbitrary power. Such ideals reached their apogee in the development of England and were enshrined in her empire producing the nations that today, possess the greatest wealth and most dynamic societies on the planet.

Outside of the Judaic-Western formulation around individual rights, choice and the freedoms enjoyed in social, economic and intellectual activity, the rest of the world has remained mired in Orientalist concepts of centralized control, community power, and attendant corruption, stagnation and public ignorance. This is not to state that all aspects of Western historical development have been glorious or peaceful. Certainly the number of destructive religious wars, inquisitions, European Orientalism exemplified by fascism and communism, and the inaninity of much of what passes for today’s popular culture gives one reasonable grounds for criticizing the West. Yet in spite of these weaknesses the Western model is far superior to other cultural models each of which has failed in shaping the modern world.

In spite of bad historical revisionism the poverty of non-Western societies is plain to see. The individual in Oriental societies and pagan cultures means nothing. The power of the group is realized through the power of the ruling gang or tribe. Individual choice, division of labor, self fulfillment, rational activity, and wealth creation are destroyed in the crush of leader worship, pagan worship, and ritualized superstitions. Some brilliant individuals were able to cut off the chains of their societal prison to achieve insights – spiritual, scientific, philosophical, economic – but these brave few were iconoclastic, fighting a losing battle against pagan ignorance and backwardness. Only in the West was thought, innovation, and ambition deemed a necessary part of societal and personal development.

The current failure of the Arab world illustrates the poverty of Oriental paganism. Married to a 7th century pagan cult the Islamic world finds itself poor, neglected, angry and chaotic. Long left behind by the West, the arrogance of the pagan Islamic mind invents conspiracy theories, root cause rationales, and foreign oppression as the main reasons for socio-economic backwardness. Mired in the pagan thought processes of a 7th century moon cult, the Arab mind has yet to free itself to deal with the opportunities and complexities of developing a society in the modern world. Fascinated by the destruction of the individual, the enslavement of females and the racism of hating non Muslims, the Islamic world will remain ignorant, stunted and viciously pre-modern.

The same is true for the Multi-Cult club’s other favorite pagan model – the North American Indian. The politically correct view is that Columbus did not discover America, because people had lived here for thousands of years. Columbus and by extension Western Civilization, is routinely vilified as a symbol of slavery and genocide. Critics, tree huggers, delusionists and sandal wearers all cry that Columbus initiated a holocaust. Piffle.

Prior to 1492, North America was mired in the stone-age, where there was virtually no change, no growth, no development and no innovation for thousands of years. With rare exception, life was ugly, nasty, brutish, and short: there was no wheel, no written language, no division of labor, little agriculture and scant permanent settlement; but there were endless and very bloody wars. Ripping out of hearts, human sacrifice, blood drinking, cannibalism and torture were common, not to mention the hunting to extinction of all large mammals. Yet this stone-age society is now applauded by historical revisionists as being the epitome of mankind’s emotional and spiritual development.

Unlike Native Ameri-Indianism, Orientalism, pagan Islam, Arabism, or Fascist-Communism, Western civilization exalts the human, enshrines the nobility of effort and thought, and glories in moral absolutes and dignity. Ask the Iraqi people if they prefer the Arab fascism of Hussein or the nascent Western democracy of the US inspired new Iraqi Constitution. Then ask if you want to live in an Islamic state or a Western one. Or how about sending the UNO and liberal jet-setters with their perfectly coiffed hair and shiny teeth to the Amazon rain forest, to live in their culturally relative stone-age world – apparently this is just as good as Manhattan. How then are all cultures relative?

The West is objectively the superior civilization – in fact it is the greatest that the world has ever seen. We should recognize that and tell the cultural relativists to shut up.
