I’ll explain in a bit why I used “Western European Man.”
But before that I’ll again note that if you want to understand the worst about people all you need to understand is the Seven Deadly Sins: Pride (vainglory is probably more accurate), Envy and the rest.
Western European Man invented/discovered/created about 98% of everything in known history (the big indispensable four are Britain, France, Germany and Italy). You can’t even say “the white man,” not accurately. What has ever come out of Romania? Estonia? Latvia? Lithuania? Serbia? It all came out of that corner of the world known as Western Europe.
And how has the non-Western world responded?
Imitation, which I certainly understand (that’s really more admiration than anything else – and admiration is the benign form of envy). But otherwise just pure envy!
And envy is always immensely destructive.
That’s why you hear delusions about Dead White Males and “patriarchy” and slavery and how “the white man” oppressed and murdered everyone and stole everything. It’s an attempt to bring them down out of envy.
Envious people want to drag down the envied, even if they destroy themselves.
You can’t even quite accurately say “western Europe.” Northern Italy, with its Renaissance, created a great deal. Yet nothing came out of southern Italy.
Scotland had its Enlightenment, yet nothing came out of Ireland.
A great deal came out of Germany. But Portugal? Nothing.
Southern England (specifically Southwestern England)? A huge amount. Northern England? Hardly anything (as an aside, I once mentioned to a friend of mine I generally preferred the Beach Boys to the Beatles, to which he responded: “Would you rather live on the beach in southern California or Liverpool?”).
The United States was basically settled by the English and Scots-Irish and Germans, which is why I can be considered Celtic/Germanic. That’s my ancestry.
Even in the United States almost everything originally came from the East Coast, then state by state it runs over to Illinois (and slightly north of it) and Missouri, then it stops and picks up again in California.
But what has ever come out of Mississippi and Georgia and Alabama? Utah? Montana? Wyoming?
What has ever come out of Mexico and Central and South America? Nothing.
Funny that all these Third Worlders think they’re going to take over the United States. “Hispanics,” Muslims, Mexicans, whatever. None of them will be able to even maintain it and certainly not create or discover anything. They’ll turn it into a Third World hell.
I guess they think the White Man Magic is in the dirt and if the Third Worlders get the dirt they get the magic.
Why? Again, envy. Also funny is the fact that these are fantasies of, again, Third Worlders who can’t compete with us and instead beg for our scraps like dogs.
Not so long ago I met a German student who was attending an American college (incidentally he cracked me up when he mentioned how amused he was by American slang, such as “laughed my ass off” or “my dogs are barking”). He wanted to move to the United States and mentioned many Europeans wanted to do this. But he said the line to get in was astronomically long.
On the other hand, the U.S. government is allowing this country to be flooded with envious mass-murdering Muslims, envious drunken, raping, murdering Mexicans, envious stupid Africans, organized-crime Russians, thieving Chinese.
This is a recipe for a perfect storm of every crime imaginable.
Even women appear to be envious. After all, feminism is leftist, and leftism is based on envy. Are women biting the hand that feeds them? Sure looks like it, doesn’t it? And what is wrong with a culture that allows a corrupt, leftist woman to run for President?
As I’ve pointed out before, again more than once, in the story of the Garden of Eden women “bring evil” into the world through their envy (the “serpent” is a symbol of envy) and men help by listening to women (for that matter, in Greek mythology women bring evil into the world by meddling in that which is none of their business.
Leftists think everyone is equal, and those who aren’t are held back by “prejudice” and “oppression” (which means “the white man”) instead of their own genetic stupidity.
Imagine if Western Europe had never existed. Then imagine what the world would be like now. It wouldn’t be pretty.
Some people just can’t figure that out.
