The latest cackle from the Left’s henhouse–all cultural Marxists are chicken, because they are terrified of facts and reason–is “white supremacy”. We are supposed to grovel in the dust before this charge, endlessly apologizing for being white. But what do facts and reason say about this? Are whites in fact superior to other races?
The question cannot at present be investigated by science because where only one conclusion is permitted there can be no science. Academics who have studied the matter and concluded that whites are, on the whole, smarter than some other races have been subjected to a campaign of terror: shouted down, fired, blackballed, sometimes even physically attacked. But the evidence from IQ tests seems to indicate that East Asians are on top, whites come in second, and the rest are also-rans.
History appears to confirm that verdict. Only two cultures have been successful over time, i.e., for thousands of years: Chinese (Han) culture and Western culture. These are the products of East Asians and whites. Civilization first arose around five thousand years ago among these two peoples. Was race the only factor? Undoubtedly not. All major historical developments are the product of multiple factors. Whenever you hear a single-factor explanation of history, you should know you are listening, not to facts and reason, but to an ideology. Beware! But was race one factor? Almost certainly. Are the differences between, say, Sweden and Italy today in part products of the differences between Swedes and Italians? Who, other than an ideologue, can deny it?
Other places and peoples have produced splendid civilizations: the Maya, the Khmer, the peoples of India, etc. But all rose, peaked, declined, and never rose again. They followed a bell-shaped curve they could not escape.
In contrast, Han civilization and Western civilization have endured. They took two very different paths in doing so. Han civilization rose and never fell. China fell numerous times as a political entity, both to foreign invasion and to civil wars. But Chinese culture was so superior that her conquerors quickly adopted it. Over five thousand years, China has maintained a remarkable continuity. If you look at an artifact from the Shang dynasty, you immediately know it is Chinese.
In contrast, the West has risen, fallen, and risen again repeatedly. The great example is Rome, but there are others. The high and successful Medieval culture that eventually replaced Romanitas fell in the 14th century, largely thanks to the plague. The first blooming of Western culture in the eastern Mediterranean and Aegean oceans collapsed around 1200 BC for reasons we do not fully understand. But in the former case the fall was followed by the Renaissance and in the latter by the glories of classical Greece. The Western pattern is very different from that of China, but both have succeeded over time, as has no one else. Again, is race one factor? Almost certainly.
When the cultural Marxists throw their boogeyman words at us, our response, after we have stopped laughing, should be to do what I have done here: respond with facts and reason. Nothing scares them more. In fact, they denounce facts and reason as “white”. To that, our answer should be, “Thanks for the compliment.” Reason and logic are one of whites’ great contributions to civilization, among many others, including classical architecture and classical music, both of which are now found all over the world because of their superiority to all others.
History says that white supremacy means a society that is constantly striving in every field to reach greater heights, to the benefit of everyone, including all other races and peoples. Just look at how Africa and Asia have profited from modern medicine, overwhelmingly a product of whites. Thanks to the uniquely white concept of noblesse oblige, supremacy does not mean oppressing others but raising them up, serving them and giving them the blessings of peace, order, and commerce. After all, most whites worship a God who said, “I came not to be served but to serve.” Don’t expect to hear that from Quetzalcoatl any time soon.
