    It is a very interesting perspective by Dr. Jacob that America is proletarian rule in its culture. Though I had considered that The American Revolution was largely set against the English Aristocracy, I’d had not quite conceived of America as thoroughly proletarian. However, it is evidently true enough, with its having been cultural standard to flout intellectual concerns; along with a kind of reverence for work and making money that ostensibly excuses the most destructive and ignorant behavior: as Jacob notes, in terms of cultural standard, there is little difference between the rich and middle class.

    I nevertheless maintain that at this juncture, we need to promote a general union in Whites, not stratification (and being unification, it is rather a “leftist” thing) – once organization of the entire class is conceptualized and widely understood, we can foster qualitative differences among our members. Then we might advance the views of subgroups and persons of cultural refinement as they naturally express it; while not permanently blocking some circulation of participation in ideal practices and the grounds of practical concerns.

      Expressed in the terms of the Indian caste system : Americans are VAISHYAS ( “middle class”) with a culture of SHUDRAS ( “working class”).

        Franklin, I think your evaluation is correct.

        Daniel, while I think stratification and hierarchy are important, I agree with you that it’s silly to begin thinking about such issues until we have a unified people and something resembling a genuine culture again.

        It’s not entirely accurate to consider the caste system as the Indian class system. The middle class are not necessarily all vaisyas and the working class not all sudras. The mark of the vaisya is someone who is a merchant, who buys and sells in one way or another to make money. The sudra is one who simply ‘labours’, or does manual work which is not communicative of metaphysical truth, or at least not considered so. Within each caste are many different jati, or trades peculiar to each caste. I would say that in America, the majority of people could be considered vaisya, in the upper, middle and working classes. Similarly, we may find sudra in the working class, but also perhaps in the middle class (the archetypal office drone doing mountains of data entry, which is essential and pays well enough but is entirely soul crippling after enough time has passed). It makes one wonder…who might our untouchables be?

    Did he say the the Vedas contain secret mytics that were only known to the priests? They what were the Vedas doing for the no priests? Were they used in ceremonies that all attended?

    Where can we go to learn about these secret powers in the Vedas? Do they still work, or did you need to be exact organics of those who wrote them?

    • Posted September 11, 2012 at 10:33 pm | Permalink

      Don, it is traditional for Hindus to believe that there are secrets contained in the Vedas which are only known to the most advanced sannyasis, or those few who spend their lives in renunciation of the material world and immersed in study of the scriptures. Similar ideas occur in Christianity and Islam, and, I imagine, most other traditions as well. There are books about this, but if you really want to learn them for yourself, then you’re probably going to have to both learn Sanskrit and also move to an ashram in India!

    Sorry, there were some typos that I did not see in first preview (this is corrected):

    Though I had considered that The American Revolution was largely set against the English Aristocracy, I had not quite conceived of America as thoroughly proletarian – in its culture anyway, it makes sense.

    I would add, not only was the American Revolution set against the English Aristocracy, but as a consequence, any hint of class snobbery has been strictly taboo in America.

    A particular example would be the more casual nature of American English* by contrast to the more mannerly and stylish British English (at least those forms closer to R.P.), which would normally be flouted as pompous in an American context, even in American academia.

    * Sometimes stifling in its requirement to be “down to earth”, on the other hand, American English can perhaps at times be more practical, as it may lend itself more easily to operations of thought, not being quite as preoccupied with style.
