This can only come from someone who is possibly the wrong colour. If this remarkable insight into humanity turns out to be true.
Which it isn't.
Africa has had many great civilisation when we in the west were still living in caves.
Egypt and Ethiopia are just two that spring to mind.
It may be that religion created our culture to the point where it allowed science to flourish. If thats true then its just a fortunate coincedence that science allows us to blow things up. without that then we wouldnt own 65% of the wealth.
Hardly a godd description of advanced is it?
We can blow you up so were clearly more advanced.
Actually, its much more than 65%. England alone owns 1/4 of the world. However, we should be looking at it as democracies and our allies owning oh so much of the world, and not the color of someone's skin.
I don't understand the question.
The point above of Egypt and Ethiopia is a very good point.
The reason European descended Caucasians (especially Anglos)control most of the world is because of superior culture compared to other groups with similar abilities. Race is incidental, an equally intelligent group with the same culture would also flourish.
The West has not always been the most advanced, though it was from the years ~500BC-500AD and from ~1500AD-now. The Byzantine empire was arguably part of the West, in this case the West remained the most advanced for some time after ~500AD.
The early Arabs were in awe of Byzantine culture, by their own accounts. They were the "Rum," the only group of infidel Europeans whom the Arab regarded as their equals, at least culturally. The religious schism between Rome and Constantinople & the political infighting of the Byzantine rulers (an unfortunate legacy of the Roman Empire in the East) were two of the greatest tragedies to befall Western civilization.
"They tend to be savage, ruthless, narcissistic, and full and terrible hate and overly aggressive. Mo"
Yes, of course, they should have all been peaceful & enlightened like those loveable Easterners, Genghis Khan or Tamerlane or Mahmud Ghazni or Pol Pot or Mao. Better yet, they should've followed the enlightened headhunting habits of the Papuans or pre-Hispanic Filipinos. I'd love to see some kind of alternative universe where the Papuans discovered gunpowder and the internal combustion engine. Then, they could've brought headhunting and cannibalism to the entire planet. ...Or how about one where Japan won World War II and brought it Co-Prosperity Sphere to the West?
Stop being so damned sanctimonious. There's shit on your shoes also, Wong.
Correct: "its" for it.
Correct: "its" for "it."
Actually a ballot by you would be more like this:
Why do 100% of white people aggressively try to take from non whites all the time?
I don't know who thought you were a right winger or even a centrist, you are way left.
"Africa has had many great civilisation when we in the west were still living in caves."
Speack for your ancestors! :--)
No, it's because they killed their way to power. Duh.
It's because they've had the best and most weapons. Killed off virtually all nonwhites in the Western Hemisphere.
Believe it or not, Im not considered way left by my pers in the UK, which begs the question are some of you guys far right, just a thought.
^ Either they don't know you very well or you only associate with people even further to the left than you.
No doubt David Duke was seen as a moderate in some circles. Didn't make it true though.
Nope, I live in a society that tolerates all branches of society and debate and discourse is kept to the facts and not on hearsay and what FOX News happened to say that night
'Nope, I live in a society that tolerates all branches of society and debate and discourse is kept to the facts and not on hearsay and what FOX News happened to say that nigh'
That has absolutely nothing to do with anything of course. Foxnews is biased to the right, just as the rest of the media is to the left.
But regardless of how tolerant and 'open to debate' your neighborhood is, any rational person will admit that you are a far leftwing radical.
You're a communist, how can you get any more to the left? Communism is the pinnacle of leftwing ideology.
Im a socilaist, there is a difference.
You believe in exploitation , I believe in shared ownership by the peole who do the actual work.
Its a simple philosophy.
It may take a house repossesion and a downsizing for you to finally figure out how pointless you existence is in the capitalist system.
Umm, ok, lol. Im flattered of course Steel. However, I WOULD be interested to hear why YOU think "white people" have owned so much of the world for such a very long time?

Nope -- just more rationalization.
The simple fact is, pretty much all countries and civilisations have been warlike at one point or another in their history, the difference with "white people" is that they had the technology to dominate the other cultures, not because they were/are more aggressive. I
Steel: "finally figure out how pointless you existence is in the capitalist system."
You hit a spot there, but you got the wrong conclusions: you would feel as pointles in communism as in capitalism. The problem that makes us feel pointless is not in the system, but in us, it's life itself. Life is pointless and so are we. It's just that some of us are projecting this universal inner sufference of the human race against the social background, upon real or imagined problems and they hope that, if we could just change the social reality, everything will be ok. But guess what: the univers itself is unfair. We get sick, we suffer, we don't get enough love, we are desilusioned, we fail, we lose and in the end we die. And that is going to happen, no matter what system we live in. Our existence will always be pointless and it will always feel this way, no matter how just or unjust the systems would be. We, as a group, should not seek happiness, just solutions. Happiness it's an individual pursuit and is rather a matter of luck and idiocy.
The only reason white people own 65% of the world is because they have cruelly taken advantage of others instead of teaching them the ways of industrial life. It's called imperialism.
Um i do agree with you to a point on that but it seems a little racist. We own it because we traveled to new continents and claimed them ours. North America wasnt ours and we took it by killing innocent natives. I think the Japanese and people of India are smarter than whites but they dont own all this land. I think its more because the white people like to explore and will do anything to get to the top even if it means fighting for land.
Im just wendering? How does England own 1/4 of the world? Thats like what 2 continents? A lot of places have won their independence from England but so did the u.s and Britain doesnt run us. This is to travistime.
East Asian have the highest average IQ's but this may be mostly in the mathmatical areas, while whites, most notably Askenazi Jews have the highest verbal IQ's in the world, and what you see in the world today is an outcome of these intelligence levels. Subsaharin blacks have the lowest IQ's and thus many would still live in straw and mud huts if it werent for the intervention of westerners.
These facts are not politically correct, nonetheless they are discussed by psychometricains at universities very frequently.
Voted : No
why does this topic say it like we/they
and why is all white people part of this? more specifics please..
