This is an old entry that I’ve shortened & edited; I think it is of interest since it touches upon issues that are universal and certainly not unique to our continent or population groups.
” You know, the only thing that kills a demon…is love” – Mickey Knox
“The Kite Runner” is a movie (and a book) set in Afghanistan depicting the friendship of two young boys from two very different backgrounds. One of them is the servant of the other. The privileged boy ends up fleeing the territory with his father to the U.S.A. when Russians invade Afghanistan. The once distinguished Baba ends up working at a gas station across the pond to provide for himself and his son. In this setting America becomes a place of refuge and hope, not only for them but for other Afghanis as well.
An interesting detail to note in the movie is that Baba doesn’t want to be examined by an American doctor of Russian ancestry, but insists on getting care from someone who hails from the same territory as himself.
“The citizens of Kabul were skeletons now. Skeletons selling naswar in the night market, skeletons drinking cups of strong tea, skeletons playing cards in the moonlight. They greeted me as I passed, teeth clacking together in their jaws. “Salaam, brother,” they said. “Welcome home.”
In the superhero movie “Black Panther“ we are introduced to a fictional African realm called “Wakanda” whose technological superiority is meant to be kept secret. The movie is actually extremely interesting as it touches upon various topics that you normally don’t come across in the universe of fictitious heroism. One is of course the question of “racial solidarity:” should Wakandans reveal themselves by sharing their secrets with others who have the same skin colour as them? Another one is the character of Killmonger who is genetically Wakandan but who has been raised in America. He is technically an insider, yet he is not since he was raised elsewhere. When his particular configuration is introduced into the African realm he literally starts a civil war in the territory, displaying how dangerous it can be to take in “strangers” even if they are biologically just like you!
This element of “from us but not like us” is very fascinating to me probably because I was raised as an expat but also since the scenario of being raised “a stranger as a stranger” is becoming increasingly common in Europe as it has been in America since its foundation. “Go back to where you come from!” but where is that exactly? I bring my readership’s attention to Liberia, a most ignored topic and scenario.
“The Americo-Liberian settlers did not relate well to the indigenous peoples they encountered, especially those in communities of the more isolated “bush“. The colonial settlements were raided by the Kru and Grebo from their inland chiefdoms. Americo-Liberians developed as a small elite that held on to political power, and the indigenous tribesmen were excluded from birthright citizenship in their own lands until 1904, in a repetition of the United States’ treatment of Native Americans. The Americo-Liberians promoted religious organizations to set up missions and schools to educate the indigenous peoples.”
It must be a strange situation to find oneself in for sure, to be born a foreigner, yet being legally not due to papers, which is a scenario touched upon in the enjoyable movie “Bend It Like Beckham.”
The tale of human suffering and struggle, whether fictional or not, knows no race or geographical boundaries as the examples from above illustrates. Yet in the light of Nike’s recent commercial featuring Colin Kaepernick and numerous other campaigns that follow a similar vein, a question is left unanswered: what about white people?
An interesting thought experiment would be to take someone like the EU politician Juncker and place him in the context of the two movies described above:
- In the 1st scenario he would be an Afghan helping and aiding the Russians in their invasion of Afghanistan. A role that would certainly have depicted him as a villain.
- In the 2nd scenario he would be an African leader giving away all of Wakanda’s technology and territory to another race. A role that would have him depicted as the worst of the worst.
In both scenarios he would be a traitor, yet in real-life and in the real-world characters like Juncker are depicted as heroes by the mainstream media, while someone who wants secure borders like U.S. President Donald J. Trump or Italian Deputy Prime Minister/Interior Minister Matteo Salvini are depicted as heartless, sociopathic, villains.
The reasons cited for why we should give our continent away as well are poor at best since nobody in the mainstream seem to ever mention that demographics within a territory goes up and down anyway, 2/3 of Norway’s population died during the Black Plague. Norwegians are still around today despite that dramatic drop….
“In addition, recent research from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) found nothing to support the assertion that economies are harmed by ageing populations.
“There is no evidence of a negative relationship between ageing and GDP per capita,” academics wrote in a paper entitled ‘Secular Stagnation? The Effect of Aging on Economic Growth in the Age of Automation’.
“On the contrary, the relationship is significantly positive in many specifications,” it adds.
This entry used to be substantially longer with a great number of articles linked into the text. I now seek to shorten it considerably:
Internal tribalism among various demographics is becoming an increasing issue under the surface in the U.S.A., this is something that I’ve written about after witnessing and experiencing this internal fragmentation myself – now it has started to bleed into mainstream journalism:
Tribalism in the U.S.A.
More about the same topic.
Poverty in England is a huge problem: 14 million Brits live in poverty.
The E.U. are hellbent on uniting Europe and Africa:
Matteo Salvini & Viktor Orban however vocally oppose unification with Africa and are not showing any signs of backing down:
An anti-EurAfrica front.
“I believe that I’m in government in order to see that our young people have the number of children that they used to a few years ago and not to transplant the best of Africa’s youth to Europe.
“Maybe in Luxembourg they need to do this, but in Italy we need to help people have more children, rather than bring in modern-day slaves (from Africa) to replace the children we’re not having.” – Matteo Salvini
The French authorities are trying to get rid of, or to discredit French politician Marine Le Pen by ordering a psychiatric evaluation. If this is how political opponents are to be treated then we are getting closer to “The Democratic People’s Republic of Europe” everyday.
The desire to forcefully bend others to one’s will is an unhealthy, ever-present wish and endeavour: “We respect your Sovereignty – as long as you do what we want…..”
Salvini is under investigation due to his handling of Italy’s immigration problem. This was an issue back when I used to live there, it only got worse under Berlusconi. It is long overdue that something gets done.
Salvini rudely interrupted since he wants more Italian children and less Africans.
Meanwhile; here we have Bill Gates who according to himself is doing God’s work. I find this to be an interesting proclamation after scrolling through his social media sites. If he is right, then God has evidently placed his love elsewhere.
The Muslim Council of Britain? British politicians who supported Hungary’s Orban, are now asked to distance themselves from him.
“His comments came after the Muslim Council of Britain said the incident raised fresh concerns about “bigotry in the party”, as the organisation has repeatedly demanded an inquiry into allegations of Islamophobia in Conservative ranks.”
You are an anti-Semite if you don’t like what Soros is doing? You are an Anti-Semite if you are targeting the Jewish people as a group. With the reasoning seen below it makes it impossible to be critical of individuals.
“President Marie van der Zyl said: “As we have stated previously, we are very alarmed by the messages at the heart of Orban’s election campaign, including his comments about ‘Muslim invaders’, calling migrants poison, and the vivid antisemitism in the relentless campaign against Jewish philanthropist George Soros.”
” … within the framework of international norms.” Where do they find these people?
“We place great values on the importance of the rule of law. We hope a resolution can be found that respects a nation’s right to set its own constitutional arrangements within the framework of international norms.”
Young politician Sebastian Kurz is a light in the darkness for sure. Austria doing what is necessary.
I find it interesting that any person who does not comply with replacement-migration and the fundamental transformation of Europe is instantly lumped into the “far-right” category regardless of political ideology. This shows that it doesn’t matter what your politics or values are as long as you disagree with uniting Africa and Europe. That is apparently the only box that you need to tick in order to get this label. Last time I checked I thought that the E.U. was about establishing peace between the Nations of Europe, clearly I was wrong.
The U.S.A. will expand its military presence in Greece.
So with all of those articles pasted in I’m back to where I started, which is how all things go in the end, here is an article about Demons: “How To Get Rid Of Demons & Demonic Attachments.”
