US academics who do dabble in this area often try to date its decline and disappearance to a convenient ‘1350 CE’ – or just prior to the arrival of Columbus in 1492 CE – whilst others state that it was probably contact with Europeans that put an end to it. The usual dualistic paradigm perpetuated is that these non-European architects who (were expert in engineering) – were also ‘savage’ in religion (a recurring theme in Protestant and Catholic-led European colonialism) – and destroyed themselves through their own inherent ‘evilness’ and ‘stupidity’! There is premised upon apparent archaeological evidence of what might be a small number of human ‘sacrifices’ dating to around 900 CE – but many old cultures practiced this including Celts, Vikings, the Chinese, Indians and many other ethnic and religious groups (including Christians) around the world. The Protestant and Catholic Christians, for instance, used to ritualistically ‘burn’ one another throughout Europe as an ‘offering’ to their respective interpretation of the same Abrahamic god! Of course, this was when these two ‘Unorthodox’ Churches were not busy torturing or burning the Pagan populations of the countries they had occupied!
Non-Democratic Nature of US System Never More Apparent! (8.11.2022)
“One of the most consequential outcomes of this redistricting cycle has been the continuing decrease in the number of competitive congressional districts,” Michael Li and Chris Leaverton of the Brennan Center for Justice at New York University School of Law pointed out.
“All told, there are now fewer competitive districts than at any point in the last 52 years,” they wrote in an analysis. “If the good news is that both parties emerged with reasonable opportunities in coming years to win control of a closely divided House, the bad news is that they will fight that battle on the narrowest of terrains under maps artificially engineered to reduce competition.”
“American democracy was never designed to be democratic,” wrote American critic and essayist Louis Menand in a piece published in The New Yorker earlier this year.
“The partisan redistricting tactics of cracking and packing aren’t merely flaws in the system — they are the system,” Menand continued, stressing that the American government has never been a government “by the people.”
China: Foreign Ministry Decries Racism of West! (28.9.2022)
The US, UK and EU all follow a US-derived anti-Socialist agenda that developed in the post-1945 era. Indeed, the EU is a direct product of US Neo-Imperialism throughout Western Europe – which is now spreading into Eastern Europe – using the ideology of ‘Neo-Nazism’ to propagate its anti-Russian racist agenda and move the boundaries of NATO up to the limitations of geographical Russia (the world will never forget the 78-days of the continuous blanket-bombing of ‘Socialist’ Yugoslavia in 1999)! This policy can be clearly seen in the Ukraine, Poland, Estonia and many other such countries. In the meantime, the US declared decades ago that it will not ‘accept’ the democratically arrived at (‘international’) status quo if such a status quo does not recognise the hegemony of the US or the dominance of US notions of free market economics! The US and its post-colonial minians seek regime change in China and so the US media, education and political systems all act in accordance with this agenda – all churning-out ‘false’ agendas, lies and general misinformation to the younger generation. The US bourgeoisie ‘fears’ a homegrown ‘Socialist’ movement which would see Americans of ALL ethnicities ‘uniting’ around their ‘working-class’ background and reaching out to their brothers and sisters in China – voluntarily putting an end to US racism!
Syria: US Neo-Imperialism Premised Upon Racism and Theft! (21.8.2022)
The US perpetuates the myth of ‘Human Rights’ whilst its foreign policies are premised upon the normalisation of the violation, contradiction and destruction of these ‘Human Rights’! Indeed, an academic report issued in recent years – states that between 1945 to present – the US military has killed between 20 to 30 million men, women and children around the world in pursuit of its socio-economic and politic vision around the world!
Down House: Sat in Charles Darwin’s Shelter! (9.7.2022)
It is said that Charles Darwin would walk around the ‘Sand-Track’ that ran around the exterior boundary of his property on a daily basis – to keep fit! Approximately half-way through – Charles Darwin had a wooden shelter (with a seat) constructed – where he would sit and think for awhile – before starting the journey home! As the years progress – we take family pictures sat on this seat!
Email: Russia’s False Dichotomy Between ‘Nationalism’ & ‘Neo-Nazism’! (5.7.2022)
A modern Russian can be ‘racist’ and ‘homophobic’ claiming that these attributes are part of his modern ‘Slav’ identity (‘Nationalism’) – whilst simultaneously asserting that these viewpoints are ‘separate’ and ‘distinct’ from Hitler’s ‘National Socialism’ and any post-1945 versions of it (that is ‘Neo-Nazism’)! This is wrong. It is an assertion even contradicted in the text itself, which readily admits that the Hitlerite ‘Combat 18’ (Neo-Nazi) is the military wing of the ‘British National Party’ (a Party in the UK that prided itself on it ‘English’ Nationalism)! I notice that even within general Russian language discourse, ‘Neo-Nazis’ in the Ukraine are often referred to as ‘Ultra-Nationalists’ – with the Neo-Nazi Battalions are acknowledged as forming the Hitlerite ‘National Guard’!
