Nature reveals an absurd reality to the astute observer: Big fishes eat smaller ones in order to survive; carnivorous animals eat the herbivorous for their sustainability; while among the human species, man is constantly searching for empowerment to enable him exercise dominance over his counterpart.
The advantage of the predator could derive from sheer physical strength, as it was in traditional societies; from knowledge superiority,( which is the bedrock of advancement), as manifested today in scientific products and wares from gild-edge technologies; but above all from ownership of capital, where those who have accumulated capital and have invested, turn it into a god which they manipulate as they deem fit to sentence their fellow humans to a life comparable either to ‘heaven or hell’ on this earth.
Donald John Trump is a successful American businessman who, until recently, the world knew nothing about.
But ever since campaigns were launched for members of America’s two most outstanding political camps, (Democrats & Republicans) to put up candidates for election to replace Obama at the White House come November, Donald Trump has been sending shock waves through the spine of humanity with his unbridled utterances as he seeks nomination under the ticket of the Republican party to run for president of the United States of America.
Many people across the globe thought that his outrageous comments at every campaign rally; in an era that humanity claims to be most civilized, sophisticated and knowledgeable, would bring him outright rejection from the American electorate.
But contrary to all expectations, Donald Trump’s popularity keeps soaring as he continues to manipulate the media to his favour, being a television personality himself.
Some Americans do not only see him winning the ticket as the Republican nominee but are even confident that he will be the next occupant of the White House. God forbid.
Trump’s comportment ever since he kick-started his campaign mirrors him in the likes of enigmatic Caucasians in history who, knowingly or unknowingly, sought to destroy this world because of what they thought, spoke and did.
Taking a look at that history so that it serves as an eye-opener to humanity at this critical point in time; and if possible push those who matter in the world to try to put a check to Trump’s ‘pollution of the earth’.
This is what will preoccupy us on your favourite column this Monday.
When we talk of enigmatic Caucasians in history, the person who readily comes to mind for the majority across the globe is Adolf Hitler.
Though the destruction Adolf Hitler inflicted on the psyche of humanity remains unsurpassed in modern history, my choice of a front-liner of such personalities falls on Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche.
This is because of my unflinching conviction that everything, be it positive or negative, begins in the minds of humans; and any outcome is usually a manifestation of the socialization and formative processes the individual went through.
Friedrich Nietzsche, christened the ‘tragic philosopher’ in academic circles was a fore runner of Adolf Hitler.
Whatever the latter did in practical terms was an overt manifestation of what he imbibed through studying Nietzsche, the undisputed evangelist of the gospel of Caucasian racial superiority.
Hear him, “All things are subject to interpretation. Whichever interpretation prevails at a given time is a function of power and not truth.”
“In the best, there is still something to loathe and the best is still something that must be surpassed.”
Then came Adolf Hitler the perfect student of Nietzsche. After learning the lessons so well, he went on the rampage.
To Adolf Hitler, “Only the Jew knew that by an able and persistent use of propaganda heaven itself can be presented to the people as if it were hell and, vice versa.
The most miserable kind of life can be presented as if it were paradise. The Jew knew this and acted accordingly.
But the German, or rather his Government, did not have the slightest suspicion of it. During the War the heaviest of penalties had to be paid for that ignorance.”
At the zenith of his euphoria about Caucasian racial superiority, Adolf Hitler declared, “The stronger must dominate and not mate with the weaker, which would signify the sacrifice of its own higher nature.
Only the born weakling can look upon this principle as cruel, and if he does so it is merely because he is of a feebler nature and narrower mind; for if such a law did not direct the process of evolution then the higher development of organic life would not be conceivable at all.”
What followed was the mass slaughter of six million Jews by the Fuhrer.
Can the world allow such a thing to happen again as Donald Trump spits insults even on divinity?
Hear Trump “Our great African American president hasn’t exactly had a positive impact on the thugs who are so happily and openly destroying Baltimore…just get somebody different in there,(into the White House) a conservative even if he is a devil.
” The ‘sin’ of the Obama regime, and what Trump sees as the most unbecoming is the enhanced welfare system Obama has been pressing the American senate and congress to adopt into law so as to relief the suffering of millions of Americans trapped in an ignominious capitalist system.
To the Caucasian, the world has no room for ideas like shared prosperity for humanity as a whole.
Trump plans to wipe out all reforms Obama had struggled to put in place over the last eight years in the health, education and other social sectors, in the face of a heartless, feeling less, money-squandering American minority ‘high’ class.
There isn’t much room in this short piece to talk about Machiavelli, Benito Mussolini, Joseph Stalin and many other Caucasians in this category who were fore runners of Donald John Trump.
On the other side, are the Mandelas, the Luther King Jnrs, the Mahatma Ghandis and so on, who put some glow on the dark history of humanity as painted by the Caucasians.
Contrary to the latter group they remain famous not because they spent their life time destroying others, or amassing material wealth for themselves and families; but by the abundance of humanism they haboured for those of their kind.
They suffered, sacrificed and even died loving and serving humanity without asking for anything in return.
To a considerable extent, the world is what it is today, (Full of hatred and violence) because of the greed, exploitation and the hatred that the likes of Donald Trump have sowed over the ages and continue to sow on earth today.
Compassion to them is an indicator of weakness, feeble-mindedness and even outright mediocrity.
Like Ayn Rand said, a creative man is not motivated nor is he so much preoccupied by the desire to beat, denigrate or destroy others but is pushed to want to distinguish himself by the need for self fulfillment through honourable achievement.
This may not necessarily be measured in the amount of material wealth the individual had accumulated as Caucasians would want us to believe.
