How Did EUROPE Become So SUPERIOR?

Posted by picard578 on February 23, 2017

One important aspect in Europe’s domination was its fragmentation. Combination of cultural diversity and political fragmentation enabled it rapid advancement, which placed it into position to culturally and politically dominate the world. It did lead to conflicts, but without conflicts there is no change. Today, Europe is working on a self-annihilation, spurred on by mentality caused by the guilt complex forced onto Europe by modern progressives. That guilt complex is caused by not knowing the history, and permeated by plutocracy’s interest in destroying advanced culture. Multiculturalism leads to cultural and societal annihilation, returning humans to stupid animals they were long time ago. Yet any protests against multiculturalism are met with accusations of xenophobia and racism, in order to prevent a reasonable debate. Dogmas and dogmatics do not like the debate, because it might force them to become enlightened. So they stop it through ideology and political correctness. Today’s West is on the road of self-destruction, precisely because it does not have the diversity, primarily diversity of ideas, that it once had.

Ancient China is a good example of progress through fragmentation. It developed huge array of technological devices, many of which were – much later – independently developed in Europe. Gunpowder rockets, printing press and many other advancements were developed. But that development stopped, and China got conquered – by Mongols, and then by Europeans. Reason? Formation of the empire. China united, became big and powerful… but it also became sluggish and unresponsive. Its size protected it from reality and from change. In the end it collapsed on itself. Same thing is happening in Europe today, the ever-increasing political integration of the continent through the European union is throwing the continent into political, cultural and economic regression. This integration was largely helped by the US plutocracy, and looking at Brexit one can see how many plutocrats tried to prevent it. Especially George Soros, the most visible plutocrat and the most extrovert agent of plutocracy, cried bloody murder about British exit. This is indicative of how plutocracy feels about integrations in general. They do not want independence, they do not want national self-determination, and they especially do not want the advancement.

Latin Roman Empire did not advance much. Their advancements were taken from the huge number of small(ish) tribes they fought. Roman sword, gladius, came from Spain (it is often called the “Spanish sword”). Another sword, spatha (cavalry sword, later adopted by infantry), was taken from the Celts. The entire concept of iron working and iron weapons originated with the Celts, and later was adapted through the known world. Greece made impressive advances in natural sciences, culture and philosophy, and was divided among city-states for the most of its ancient history. Cultural and political pluralism produced pluralism of inventions. Similar thing occured in India, where huge number of small kingdoms competed among themselves – “Arabic numbers”, algebra, and many other inventions were made in India, only to be stolen by Muslim conquerors and then brought to Europe. Muslim empires on the other hand can boast of no progress, other than what they stole from others. Even the car bombs were invented by Western terrorists. Part of the reason is certainly religious dogmatism, but more important was cultural homogeinity created by Islam. Islam is a perfect war religion, and it imposes single culture and single mind upon the conquered people. This singularity then halts any progress in its tracks. And what Islam had done for the Arabic world, multiculturalism is doing for the West.

European colonialism, which is now threatening to destroy Europe, was not the cause of the European advancement. It was a consequence of the advancement, originating in the need for resources and markets that said advancement produced. But today’s people care not for truth or history; and so it became politically correct to believe that everything bad came from the West, and that Western civilization has to be replaced. Political correctness is in fact the enemy of advancement. As noted before, advancement can only happen through plurality and pluralism. This is because cultural pluralism produces the plurality of ideas. The more different ideas are produced and explored, the faster the advancement happens. But any idea, especially a new one, is insulting to somebody. If one fears insulting other people, one will not express new ideas and may not even produce them. This fear of insulting and being insulted is the very basis of political correctness, it is in fact a definition of political correctness. And just like any other kind of (intellectual) fascism, it is lethal to any sort of advancement.

  2. Hey Picard, thanks for reblogging this essay. I knew you had posted something, but I was super busy (including writing about the TRAPPIST planetary system of seven Earth sized planets!).
    Your own comment/essay on it is very interesting, especially the perspective about China, that it was so big and fat…I did not think of it this way, but now that I do, I have further remarks, amplifying yours. China was then at least three empires. Genghis destroyed the Xia quickly: they had enslaved him. North China took more doing, and influential Mongol generals offered to Genghis to make it into a large Mongolia, through TERRAFORMING… Genghis declined the offer. South China was left to his successor.
    Well, anyway, your work requires an essay of its own to reply properly to it…
    I will momentarily drop my other activities, and do just this…
    Patrice

  3. Here is a preliminary answer on just one point you make, Picard!
