White Guilt in the Service of Political Power

What We Fear When We Fear Terrorism

By Ross Douthat, Nov. 30 2015 (LINK to article)
"American xenophobia: We fear attacks from a nebulous or specifically-Islamic “Other” more than we fear violence by angry white men . . . , because Americans still identify with whiteness/maleness/Christianity too closely to fully imagine “white Christian terrorism” as something to be feared . . . This is a mostly left-wing argument . . "
Indeed it is a mostly left-wing argument, behind which lies an ideology of white racial self-denial and self-contempt, which began as an understandable overreaction to Jim Crow, Apartheid and, of course, Nazism, with their ideology of racial supremacism, before being transformed into an instrument of socio-political intimidation, rewards, punishments, manipulation and control, just as medieval church ideology once served.

What makes this ideology so powerful and pernicious is that is serves the age-old strategy of “divide and rule”, dividing society into a morally superior, now supposedly "colour-blind", elite and the morally inferior, naturally (human nature being what it is) less colour-blind, masses, who must submit to the authority of and domination by their "moral superiors".

It plays the same power-political role that medieval church ideology once did, whereby "original sin" (disobedience of divine, i.e. priestly/state authority) is replaced by "racial prejudice" (the natural human inclination - like original sin - to identity with members of one's own tribe, race or ethnic group, which was wrongly made responsible for the Holocaust and equated with the evils of Nazi racism), which only submission to priestly/academic/state ideology and authority can save us from eternal damnation for, not as heathens and heretics, as in the past, but as "bigots" and "racists".

As in the past, we are being bullied by an elite of "moral supremacists" who demonise different aspects of human nature to their own, personal, advantage, and which academics don't recognise, because they themselves are some of the biggest bullies.
