There are mainly 2 kinds of racists, the racist who hates people because they are different and the racist who likes people because they are different. Both are racists, just of a different sort. This is not meant to confuse or blur the lines between racism and equality but its a point that is meant to help shine a light on a serious problem in the world today. Racism is a subject that has been used as a political football for far too long and that has led people astray from reality. If people are being honest they are one of the 2 types listed above. But people are seldom honest in politics and they seek to obfuscate, especially when what they want to do is going to harm people.
There is, however, one more kind of racist, the one who claims they are not a racist at all. They are dishonest (or delusional), because all people are racist. Its the natural order of things. Mother Nature is racist (the second kind). But, the problem with this group is that they seek to eliminate, by force if necessary, all differences in people. These are the most dangerous people of all because they also seek to undermine civilization, to control it, and their brand of racism is one of the tools. People have a biological need to be unique and these so-called "non-racists" seek to deprive humans of that right. They wish to force everyone to be the same because it makes it easier to gain and maintain control of them. Having a civilization of differing ideologies and opinions is difficult to manage, when you're a politician, or anyone seeking power. For everyone else, its a benefit, as demonstrated by the success of the United States.
"Power corrupts. Absolute power corrupts absolutely."
The socialist left today is made up of many who are racists of the third kind. These people are truly dangerous because first off, they have convinced the people that it is THEY who wish to bring about equal rights to all citizens, but it is a lie. They seek no such thing. In fact, it is THEY who wish to imprison people in a one-size-fits-all ideological cage. They preach their religion as if no intelligent person could ever disagree with them. They portray themselves as equivalent to God and their opinions are Word of God. They are the modern world's priests.
Don't fall for the tricks of these people. Its easy to do. They tell people what they want to hear, just like Adolf Hitler. People want to hear that humans are destroying the planet. People want to hear that everything should be free. People want to hear that rich people are all greedy. People want to hear that oil is Satan. Some people want to hear that the United States is evil. Its so easy to believe, just like in a cult. But use common sense, use your brain.
And, look at history with open eyes. What existed before Democracy and Capitalism? War, hunger, disease, dispair, and worldwide. People struggled just to feed themselves. Do you want that world back? The world today isn't perfect but what's REALLY causing the world's problems today? Do yourself a favor, be honest. It isn't Democracy and Capitalism. The biggest fault of the human race is its laziness. People will do ANYTHING to get out of working. And Socialism is the philosophy of the lazy brain. Socialism is also the philosophy of the racist of the third kind. That's why it is so well supported by the idle rich.
Solving the world's problems requires hard work.
