Chapter 87 – The Way Of The European

       History was one of my favorite subjects when I was in high school. Were it not for my intense interest and curiosity in science, I probably would have grown up to be a history professor. Later in life, I did extensive reading and research on the European conquest of Africa and Asia, and American history during the antebellum period in the American South. All this inspired me to write my first book published in 1988. It was titled, “African-American Prosperity – You’ll See It When You Believe It”. (Full disclosure – it was my first attempt at self-publishing and it was very poorly edited, although the critical feedback on the content indicated it was very informative and enlightening). My key learning from all of the research I did before writing the book was my understanding of the reason why Europeans were so successful in conquering the world. I became aware that, prior to the 1400s, no civilization anywhere in the world admitted they didn’t know everything there was to know about the world and the universe, especially regarding its purpose and creation. All cultures and civilizations had their own special spins on the subject, but what they had in common was that all believed their explanation was the one and only explanation. It was the Europeans who first took the approach that, “maybe we don’t know all that is – lets go out and see what actually is true or not true”. It was that open mindedness that lead to the discovery of gun powder in Asia and its eventual development into weapon systems that enabled them to conquer the world, led to a large degree by the British Empire.

       One would think that these early expeditions were led by scientists. They were not. Although scientists were the inspiration for the voyages and participated as consultants, the expeditions were primarily conducted by the military with the clergy second in command. As a result, the military provided security for the scientists, who gleaned the practical benefit out of all the discoveries and the clergy was there to bless and interpret God’s purpose for all of the discoveries. Sadly, the clergy (just as the clergy of any of the cultures they conquered would have done had they empowered scientific method and logic before the Europeans) concluded that only Europeans were created in God’s image and therefore not only had the right but the responsibility to rule the world. While the instinct to do that is a very primitive instinct derived from our tribal, hunter/gatherer past, it is never the less a natural tendency that exists in all of us. The tragedy of it is that the advancement of humankind’s technological evolution cannot coexist with tribal instinct (which we today described as fascism) that seeks to dominate or exterminate all competing cultures and ideals. The lesson of World War II was that pursuit fascism, given the power of modern day weapons of mass destruction, would only result in the destruction of all humankind. It’s probably not by accident that this modern day clamor for secure borders, supposedly to preserve the entitlements of people of European heritage, is led by the United States, which was the only major industrialized power in the world that did not suffer the horrors of the war within its own borders. We have no modern historical experience of what is really risked by going down this fascist road.

       The point of this discussion is to get you to understand that the fact that Trump’s supporters are still solidly behind him in spite of the colossal blunders he has made in his handling of the COVID-19 pandemic, and his being responsible for the loss of thousands of lives unnecessarily and for as yet un-calculable damage to the economy, is a clear indication that fascism is becoming firmly rooted in our country. There is no other explanation for this completely illogical devotion to Trump other than the belief apparently held by at least 30% of white Americans, that they are at war with everyone who does not subscribe to their belief that America belongs to white people only.

It is important to understand that fascism is not something peculiar to white people exclusively. Where fascism is concerned, we are all European. Fascism is a primordial tendency that exists in all of us. Those who advocate for it would have you believe that it is a manifestation of strength and determination, when actually it is a product of fear and the weakness of hatred. Like many of the hereditary tendencies that are natural to us as animals and served a useful purpose when our barefoot ancestral tribes were struggling to survive, it has outlived its usefulness and we must use our intellect and capacity for change to evolve past it. If red as well as blue states do not turn off this fascist road we’re travelling on, the United States of America will no longer exist after this next election. I don’t know what the new nation will be called (probably something like The Fascist Republic of Trumplandia), but at least in practice, it will no longer be the United States of America. First we will tear ourselves apart from within. Then the conflict will escalate to include the entire world. It will be the beginning of the end of all of us.
