Zur Verteidigung des Vorurteils

M&Ms2,515 words

English original here

Vor Jahren erzählte mir ein Freund eine Parabel über eine Hominidenspezies, die es nicht erlebte, die Erde zu erben. Diese Hominiden betrachteten jedes einzelne Wesen als völlig einzigartig. Wenn ein Tiger aus der Dunkelheit sprang und einen von ihnen in sein Verderben zerrte, veranlasste sie das zu keinen Verallgemeinerungen über Tiger als Gruppe. Als daher ein neuer Tiger in den Schatten am Rande des Feuerscheins herumzuschleichen begann, wurde er nicht auf der Grundlage des Verhaltens des anderen Tigers beurteilt. Read more …

En Defensa del Prejuicio

M&Ms2,632 words

English original here

Hace años, un amigo me dijo una parábola sobre una especie de homínido que no vivió para heredar la tierra. Estos homínidos comprendían cada entidad como enteramente única. Cuando un tigre saltaba desde la oscuridad y secuestraba uno de ellos a su muerte, esto no les generó ninguna generalización de los tigres como grupo. Entonces cuando un tigre nuevo aparecía alrededor merodeando en las sombras al borde de la luz del fogón, él no era juzgado en base al comportamiento de los otros tigres. Read more …

How I Became a Socialist

Jack_London_Bain_News_Service1,540 words

It is quite fair to say that I became a Socialist in a fashion somewhat similar to the way in which the Teutonic pagans became Christians — it was hammered into me. Not only was I not looking for Socialism at the time of my conversion, but I was fighting it. I was very young and callow, did not know much of anything, and though I had never even heard of a school called “Individualism,” I sang the paean of the strong with all my heart.

Til forsvar for fordomme

M&Ms2,569 words

English original here

En ven fortalte mig, for år tilbage, en lignelse om en art hominider der ikke overlevede til at arve Jorden. Disse hominder betragtede hvert evig eneste væsen og tilfælde som aldeles enestående. Når en tiger sprang ud af mørket, og slog klørene i en af dem, førte dette ikke til nogen generaliseringer angående tigre som gruppe. Når en ny tiger begyndte at luske rundt i skyggerne omkring lejrbålet, blev den således ikke vurderet på baggrund af den anden tigers adfærd. Read more …

Na obranu predsudkov

M&Ms2,177 words

English original here

Pred niekoľkými rokmi mi priateľ povedal podobenstvo o druhu hominidov, ktorý neprežili, hoci mohli vládnuť Zemi. Títo hominidi považovali každého tvora za úplne jedinečného. Keď vyskočil tiger z temnoty a jedného z nich odsúdil k tragickému osudu, nebolo to pre nich dôvodom, aby zovšeobecňovali tigrov ako skupinu. Takže keď začal druhý tiger obchádzať v tieňoch na pokraji ohňa, nesúdili ho na základe chovania prvého tigra. Read more …

German Cinema Classics 
Heimat (1938)

Heimat poster9,830 words

Heimat is one of the finest productions of Third Reich cinema, and by any standard it is an excellent film. The title means “homeland,” and in the minds of many the word Heimat is closely associated with National Socialist ideology. Indeed, a close study of this film can give us priceless insights into the true nature of that ideology. But the results may surprise you.

Race, Identity, Community

Aeneas3,674 words

Modern Right-wingers who assert the importance of racial differences and advocate racial separatism, especially White Nationalists, face a number of philosophical challenges which they need to be aware of and ready to address. It is all too common to rely on presuppositions, assumptions, or implications without being prepared to respond to more in-depth issues or the complications involving the interpretation of facts and ideas.

Whither America: Elitism or Racism?

bellcurve3,972 words

In our universities today and in the pages of the scientific journals a battle is being waged between scientists concerned with racial matters on the one hand—biologists, psychologists, and anthropologists of professional integrity—and pseudo-scientists concerned with upholding the fundamental liberal dogma of universal human equality on the other hand. Despite the well-entrenched position of the pseudo-scientists and their powerful allies in politics and the communications media, encouraging progress is being made by the scientists. Read more …
