EDITORIAL -- KNOW THYSELF! -- KNOWLEDGE IS POWER!

July 17, 2003

Before we read our "News Bulletin",  let's enjoy some typical views about "mankind" across the ages, taken from an essay, that I wrote three years ago, demonstrating the inherent racist, fascist essence of the world system that is producing such macabre, international news, as exemplified below.

In general, the statements below will also highlight who is man, who is a human being, who is a child of God, who has "rights", and who is supposed to be liberated in Iraq, or  anywhere on this planet. As we should know already, "Niggers", “slaves", "Jews", "Arabs", "aliens",  "recogelatas", "bottle and tin collectors from the rubbish heap", "Kaffirs", "coolies", "latinos",  "communists", "terrorists",  etc., -- over 95% of "humanity", of 6 billion -- do not belong to the sonorous, ideological epithet: humanity.

Whether we like it or not, believe it or not, know it or not, the quotations below simply reflect the "gospel truth" about our world, coming from the "think-tanks" of the masters of the globe; currently, in the Fourth Empire, more than ever, they express a formal- logical, self-evident, racist, fascist Absolute Truth. Thousands of erudite ideologues have affirmed it across the ages. And billions still have not studied their Gnothi Seautón, their "Know Thyself", their "Conócete a tí mismo", have not yet developed their "Knowledge is Power". Who still can read, read between the lines, please, carefully, just read your official "classics", your daily "news"! Anyhow, here we go:  


"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."

(Declaration of Independence, 1776.)


"Every political association has as its goal the preservation of the natural and inprescriptible rights of men. These rights are liberty, property, security and resistance to oppression."

(Art. 11, Declaration of Rights of Man and the Citizen, 1789.)


Slaves are “Speaking Tools”, they do not form part of the famous "Zoon Politikon". They are only barbaric, banausian "Speaking Tools".
(Aristotle.)



"Characteristic of the Negro (of Africa) is, that his world outlook didn't reach any definite objectivity as yet, e.g., God, Law, which would reflect a human will, and in which he could experience his essence. ... The Negro represents the natural human being still in a state of total savageness and wildness. ... The Negro displays a total disrespect, a contempt  towards humanity. ... For him, humanity is worthless, this takes on incredible forms; for him, tyranny is not injustice, and a generally accepted and sanctioned custom is to devour human flesh. ... Another characteristic of Negroes is slavery. ... On their own continent the Negroes experience a slavery worse than European enslavement of Negroes. ... The fundamental expression of slavery is precisely that man is not yet conscious of his freedom, hence he degenerates into a thing, into something without any human value. ... We leave Africa, not to mention it anymore, because it is not a historic continent, because it lacks motion and development, ... it is just appearing vaguely on the dark threshold of world history. "

[G. W. F. Hegel, Excerpts from: LECTURES ON THE PHILOSOPHY OF
HISTORY. (My free translation, exhibiting the "racist" arrogance.)]
 

"It is almost unthinkable that God, who is all goodness itself, could have determined to place a soul -- let alone a good soul -- in a body as black and repulsive as that of a Negro."

(Montesquieu, "Esprit des Lois", Livre XV, Chapter 5.)
 

"The Negro race is a species of men as different from ours as the breed of spaniels is from that of greyhounds. ... If their understanding is not of a different nature from ours, it is at least greatly inferior. They are not capable of any great application or association of ideas, and seem formed neither for the advantages nor the abuses of philosophy."

(Voltaire, Works.)

In short, they all affirmed what Montesquieu had stated in a most telling and overt manner:

"It is impossible for us to suppose these creatures to be men!"

There you have the only true man speaking, whilst you are the "non-men", the "non-human beings", --- yet, it is all that difficult to explain this to you!


Apart from the fact, that in the "Communist Manifesto", Marx & Engels, typical social products of their "racist", colonial, liberal-capitalist epoch, spoke about "barbarian and semi-barbarian countries dependent on the civilized ones", Marx himself found a subject of derision in Ferdinand Lasalle's “negroid" features, calling him a "Jewish nigger", "who always conceals his woolly hair with all kinds of hair-oil and make-up", and that "it is perfectly obvious, from the shape of his head and the way his hair grows, that he is descended from Negroes." - So much as for the defendants of the working class!

These are the "human" reflections of the European superstructure of the 18th and 19th centuries. In the Third Millennium A.D., capitalist "race" prejudice and the conceptions of "man", -  of the perfect, great "human being" - have not changed basically. Also the attitudes towards “barbarian races" have not ceased; on the contrary, they have become more virile, more virulent; this could be seen in the "World Wars", in the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, in the Nazi concentration camps, in the Stalinist Gulags, in the slaughtering carried out by tyrants such as Idi Amin and Mobutu, in the South African Apartheid regime, in the witch-hunting of the McCarthy era, in the murders of Patrice Lumumba and Walter Rodney, in the Rwanda Conspiracy, in the US "shock and awe" over Baghdad, in fact, in the Whole Global Era, as far as the eyes could see, as far as the Internet could reach!
