George Orwell once said that some ideas are so foolish that only an intellectual could believe them. Multiculturalism is one of those ideas – as mentioned by Thomas Sowell. The members of our intelligentsia burst into indignation or outrage at "gaps" or "disparities" in educational, economic or other outcomes -- and denounce any cultural explanation of these group differences as "blaming the victim." Other tools of our ongoing enslavement process are affirmative action, inclusiveness, diversity, equal opportunity, disparate impact, hate speech. (like what I am doing here). That thought reminds me of the Stalin’s scientist Lysenko who believed that the Soviet educational system will produce “a New Soviet Man” – hard-working, unselfish, honest man, serving all the time the needs of the state. The non-conforming were sent to the Soviet “re-educational” camps (aka Gulags) by the many millions where they were largely murdered. Among Obama’s White House advisers (so-called czars) and the Democrat leaders in the Senate and the House there are a number of suitable candidates for the post of the commander of the future American Gulag. In the next few years the irresponsible printing of some 20 trillion paper dollars will inevitably result in runaway inflation, gigantic unemployment numbers, huge bankruptcies of private corporations and banks, followed by massive nationalizations, big city riots, arming of Obama’s community organizations (in the defunct USSR these were called soviets) in order to suppress those riots, and the new martial law giving Obama dictatorial powers in the name of saving the country. Teacher unions have produced three generations of illiterate nincompoops voting their feelings, with no knowledge whatsoever of history, geography, literature, philosophy, chemistry, physics, mathematics, logics – who will readily accept the new order and actively support it. I can see one positive result of this “transformation” as defined by Obama: the disappearance of trial lawyers hyenas trolling for victims of private corporations “bent on killing their customers”. Logical – right? Who will buy their products if their customers are dead? But then in a perfect society where everything belongs to the state there will be no such victims any longer, and therefore no need for trial lawyers. Well – one must see the one bright side in this coming catastrophe.
