Race

A race is a grouping of humans based on shared physical or social characteristics into categories viewed as distinct. Originally the term was used to refer to a common language or national affiliations. It evolved to refer to physical (phenotypical) traits.

The invention of the idea of race is a concepts developed from the ancient times that was born out of membership in a clan, tribe, or civil society. In the 1940s, anthropologists tried to present racial differences as scientific fact by categories like Caucasoid, Mongoloid and Negroid.

Johann Friedrich Blumenbach divided the human species into five races in 1779 and eventually divided people based on cranial size and shape.

“Race” refers to physical differences that groups and cultures consider socially significant, while “ethnicity” refers to shared culture, such as language, ancestry, practices, and beliefs.

Racism

Racism on the other hand is prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against a person or people on the basis of their membership of a particular racial or ethnic group, typically one that is a minority or marginalized.

It is also defined "as the belief that different races possess distinct characteristics, abilities, or qualities, especially so as to distinguish them as inferior or superior to one another."

Of course the ADL may define racism "as the hatred of one person by another — or the belief that another person is less than humudio broadcastsan." By defining racism in extreme terms we may do an injustice to the insidious and debilitating nature of it's effects on members of society.

Race is the result of some people choosing to categorize people based on physical or genetically related characteristic, while racism is the choice of some people to be prejudice or discriminate against or for or on behalf of one or more of these specified categories.

Is racism statistically a problem in the United States?

If not, what is the problem?

Riots in Christ's time over the Corban of the Pharisees which was Legal charity. Modern Church VS Pharisees- Are you following blind guides?; Pharaoh's power source. The scolding of Davy Crockett and weakening the poor. Thinking like Christ instructed because socialism is incompatible with Christianity; Destroying other peoples' statues is stealing; Christian response to rioters; Individuals have power - in righteousness--- Keep perspective.

The symptom and the cure

Racism is not the cause of societies degeneration but the symptom. To war against racism without understanding the root cause is like slaying windmills as if they were dragons.

It is the seven vices of mankind that decay and injure the members of the human race including what we often list as Lust, Gluttony, Greed, Sloth, Wrath, Envy, and Pride. These are often referred to as the Seven Deadly Sins but sin is just falling short. So, vices are just falling short of or neglecting virtue. Racism damages the individual racist to the point of degeneration because it cultivates pride to the level of hubris.

Racism can also draw the unforgiving victim of racism into the same degenerating process altering their state of mind. Men like Booker T Washington knew that unforgiveness and whining about the abuse of racist was detrimental to the thinking of the individual members of mankind, the race of men. The key to growth as an individual was to make yourself useful and productive.

All vices, as the absence of virtue, contribute to the degeneration of the individuals and society as a whole. Racism is often also driven by a spirit of Lust from that Latin word "luxuria" meaning "puritanical, self-righteous and self indulgent". In fact, not only the victimizer, but victim who is without forgiveness of racism can be degenerated by Gluttony, Greed, Sloth which will lead to Envy, and Wrath.

This process can be seen throughout history. Tacitus wrote:

"The vices, of which alone he boasts, overthrew the Empire, even when he was but the Emperor's friend. Shall he earn that Empire now by his manner and his gait, or by those womanish adornments? They are deceived, on whom luxury imposes by its false show of liberality; he will know how to squander, he will not know how to give." [1]

Tacitus goes on to speak of the "This lawless spirit will pass into the provinces" and "We shall give you a donative for your loyalty, as surely as others can give it for your treason."

The covetous practices of the welfare state entices the self-indulgent individual to betray their fellow man to continue to desire those "bounties, donations, and benefits” that destroy liberty and the love of it in society.[2]

This is no different than what Polybius warned of more than a hundred years before:

"The masses continue with an appetite for benefits and the habit of receiving them by way of a rule of force and violence. The people, having grown accustomed to feed at the expense of others and to depend for their livelihood on the property of others... institute the rule of violence; [3] and now uniting their forces massacre, banish, and plunder,[4] until they degenerate again into perfect savages and find once more a master and monarch." [5]

Polybius saw the downfall of the republic a 150 years before the first Emperor of Rome and 175 years before the birth of Jesus Christ and John the Baptist.

The authoritarian State uses force and violence to become the Benefactors of the people. They force one class of citizen to provide for another. Proverbs 23 warned and Christ forbid that type of socialist government.

"He who lives outside the law is a slave. The free man is the man who lives within the law, whether that law be the physical or the divine."– Booker T. Washington

To covet your neighbor's goods through the exercising authority of government is to live outside the divine law of God.

It is the modern welfare state instituted by the New Deal and FDR and the Great Society with its War on Poverty by LBJ that did more to damage the hearts and minds of the Black community than all the racism of the last hundred years or more. It has lead to violence and Riots. racism has just become the excuse to justify Lust, Gluttony, and Greed that come from desiring benefits at the expense of their neighbor. There should be no doubt that Sloth, Envy, and Pride will follow ending in the Wrath of riots in the street.


So, the problems of our times is no different than those of the past and have virtually nothing to do with black or white made categories called race. Neither slavery nor racism is the cause of the degeneration of individuals in society as much as the liberal who justifies the vices that bring real degeneration. The real problems of society is not racism but the cry of racism by those who contribute to the growth of vices through a "false show of liberality" whether in physical benefits, affirmative action or emotional justification.

"No man, who continues to add something to the material, intellectual and moral well-being of the place in which he lives, is left long without proper reward." – Booker T Washington

To suggest the Black man or any one who is poor cannot succeed without help is a disservice but to help them by forced offerings through the exercising authority of government will condemn the whole of society.

"Those who are happiest are those who do the most for others. – Booker T. Washington

As Christians the pursuit of happiness must be by what we do through faith, hope, and charity and not force, fear, and fealty as the Gospel specifies.

It is through a daily ministration of love through charity as Christ commanded and the practice of Pure Religion that God is able to cultivate his love in us through the Holy Spirit.

"Great men cultivate love… Only little men cherish a spirit of hatred." – Booker T. Washington

The "manner" of our "gait" should not be "womanish"[6]. The people are "deceived" by the "false show of liberality" of the socialist with whining cries of pity and who "know how to squander" but "will not know how to give".

"A whining crying race may be pitied but seldom respected." – Booker T. Washington


"The thing to do when one feels sure that he has said or done the right thing and is condemned, is to stand still and keep quiet. If he is right, time will show it. – Booker T Washington

Trolls

The spirit of the troll dwells in the dark places of our own hearts. It resides in the realms of our soul we are not willing to see. It thrives in denial but in order to oppress, there must be a victim to dance with. Identity politics and intersectionality[7] will not only create an army of trolls roaming cyberspace but also the orcs and goblins of the physical world in which we live.

Capitalism

There is often an insidious Sophistry used to defame capitalism if you find a capitalist doing evil.

In an article about King Leopold II's (of Belgium) murder of millions of Congolese, the author "talked about what capitalism did to Africa, [and] all the privileges that rich white people gained from the Congolese genocide.

This article of course was racist, suggesting that whites murder blacks. The truth is, people murder people. If you put people in a position of power over other people, abuse will occur because power corrupts. People were not designed to rule over each other.

Power to rule over your neighbor leads to abuse of power, black, white, red, yellow or green ... it makes no difference. Evil comes in all colors, shapes and nationalities. Some systems lend themselves to that abuse. The ones that centralize power or use power to control others and make them do what they want are the social DNA of tyranny and tyrants.

Besides the race distortion in the article, there was another insidious misconception hidden in it, about "capitalism".


The morality of the economic system of Capitalism is entirely dependent upon the people who practice that system. Capitalism simply agrees that you own what you produce with your own labor but if that ownership is to be moral you must also labor to wisely share what you produce otherwise what you produce may end up owning you.

Socialism is both a political and economic theory of social organization that advocates the concept that individuals should not have ownership of the means of production, distribution, and exchange which includes the land, capital (money), or industry, but rather the whole community collectively owns and controls property, goods, and production. This allows the immoral

Jawaharlal Nehru said "Democracy and socialism are means to an end, not the end itself" but Karl Marx said "Democracy is the road to socialism" and "Socialism leads to Communism."

Some like Winston Churchill sees that "Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery."

Margaret Thatcher once said that "The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other peoples' money."

Capitalism is not supposed to provide for the working class, it's a system for the working class to provide for themselves.


Systematic Socialist

(from the article on Norway#Systematic Socialist)


Systems produce results. According to their natural patterns comprehensive systems will produce predictable results.

No pain no gain is a rule about exercise of your body. Society is a body too. If virtue is the “character muscle” of the individual Social Virtues can be described as the sinew of society.

There is no such thing as a free lunch unless it is provided by charity.

George Washington once said "Government is not reason; it is not eloquent; it is force. Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master."

So yes you can move to other countries with all the other Social Democrats[8] and force your neighbor to pay for your education.

The Social Democratic Party of Germany was outlawed in Germany but returned to government, in 1969, with Willy Brandt. The term Nazi is German and stems from Nationalsozialist or National Socialist. The party was created as a means to draw workers away from communism and into völkisch nationalism which is interesting in the light of Karl Marx advocating “Democracy is the road to socialism” and because socialism leads to Communism.

It rose to power with socialist ideals but the 25 points of Hitler was clearly racist.

Once it segregated German race from others its point 9 stated "All citizens must possess equal rights and duties."

The German work ethic praised since the days of Tacitus went on to state in item 10 that "The first duty of every citizen must be to work mentally or physically. No individual shall do any work that offends against the interest of the community to the benefit of all."

This bases allowed them to "demand" in additional points:

11. "That all unearned income, and all income that does not arise from work, be abolished."
12. Since every war imposes on the people fearful sacrifices in blood and treasure, all personal profit arising from the war must be regarded as treason to the people. We therefore demand the total confiscation of all war profits.
13. We demand the nationalization of all trusts.

You can outlaw whatever party you want but God already outlawed coveting your neighbor's goods which all Socialist do by their very nature.

Public school education is a benefit provided at the expense of your neighbor who is forced to contribute whether he agrees with what is taught or not. If the schools receive funds from a government in debt, be it Federal or State, we make our children surety for that debt. “Many a man thinks he is buying pleasure, when he is really selling himself a slave to it.” Ben Franklin.

There is no free lunch, free education or free benefit coming from governments. Modern society has sold itself into bondage as a surety[9] for the debt through a system of economic and political control. You and your children are a surety for that debt under benefactors who exercise authority one over the other.

“He that is surety for a stranger shall smart [for it]: and he that hateth suretiship is sure.” Proverbs 11:15

All lawyers and everyman concerned about the weightier matters of law and justice should understand that a contract “arises from the principles of natural law: it is voluntary, and founded in consent: it involves mutual and reciprocal obligations; and it is for mutual benefit…”[10]

The captivity and subjection of the people and their children is often been established through the acceptance of benefits granted by a contractual submission to the feigned benevolence of government who promise you liberty from your personal responsibilities.[11] When the benefit is provided through debt the former beneficiary is snared as a surety.[12]

The Bible and Christ’s redemption commands for us to live by faith, hope and charity, loving our neighbor and not coveting his goods for personal benefit if we are to have His surety[13] and liberty.10[14]


We are to attend to the Weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith which include caring for the needs of our neighbors and the widows and orphans of our society through Pure Religion in matters of health, education, and welfare. We are NOT to do so by the Covetous Practices of modern governments.

The Way of Christ was like neither the way of the world nor the governments of the gentiles who depend on benefactors who exercise authority. Christ's ministers and true Christians do not depend upon systems of social welfare that force the contributions of the people like the corban of the Pharisees which made the word of God to none effect. Many people have been deceived to go the way of Balaam and the Nicolaitan and out of The Way of Christ.

The Christian conflict of the first century Church appointed by Christ was because they would not apply to the fathers of the earth for benefits but instead relied upon a voluntary network providing a daily ministration to the needy of society through Faith, Hope, and Charity by way of freewill offerings of the people, for the people, and by the people through the perfect law of liberty in Free Assemblies according to the ancient pattern of Tuns or Tens.

The modern Christians are in need of repentance.
