HOW TO ARGUE WITH ANTI-WHITE RACISTS 9

Most people are unhappy with their country and the world, whether on the left or right. I’ve been campaigning as a rebellious youth and then critical writer all my life. I believed in the revolution a la Russell Brand until learning more about the world at university. Youth seem to think the revolution will bring a utopia where they can dance all day, a la Avatar‘s Pandora etc.

However the reality is likely to be a few days of celebration followed by years of hardship; and probably violence, especially against women; and then a new authoritarian leadership, and probably greedy corruption.

For those in the Western democracies who criticise their leaders’ corruption; as I have to my cost all my life; should know that European and white-majority countries are top of the non-corrupt leagues, and the most corrupt are those in Africa, Middle-East and Asia, according to the Global Corruption Index.

The top fifteen LEAST corrupt countries are European, plus Canada, New Zealand and Australia. The rest of the top 23 are European except for Singapore (16th), Japan and Hong Kong SAR China.

I don’t know which social-political-sporting system has won most battles throughout history, but when thinking about it recently, I thought that the authoritarian should win more than it does, with more of a total war attitude, and wondered why it didn’t.

Media War Propaganda My Doctoral Thesis

I don’t know if it’s a common theme or knowledge, and if I’ve read it somewhere long ago, perhaps in my studies, where it was my specialist subject. It emerged recently into my head as an original idea, inspired by thinking about the quick collapse of I.S. in Syria.

I thought that while a totalitarian attitude with promising propaganda can work to build a quick big following initially, if the promising propaganda is shown to be false, then it will also result in a quick big collapse.

The democratic side doesn’t have the sudden burst of energy from ‘big lie’ propaganda, but can sustain itself better through defeats, as they are not as crushing to its whole rationale. To use a food analogy, its like a sudden sugar rush v complex carbohydrates.

‘Big lie’ propaganda is like a ‘set in stone’ monolith that cannot be repaired when cracks start to show, whereas democracy is more like a brick wall that can be renovated, with the ‘new bricks’ derived from debate and policy-strategy changes.

Having chosen creative writing after my PhD I have written a Folding Mirror poem to demonstrate how I see the two sides of the above discussion. It also has relevance to ordinary society and culture, where these kinds of battles also go on; and even more now in the social media age; and to individual personalities, with regard to self-development and sociability.

Democracy Debate v Authoritarian Agitate

weakness a waving
for all to see
positive attribute
enlightened society
balance power better
when enjoying strong economy

displaying replaceable tail, possible false trail

cultures with closed society
brainwash people by
boasting superiority
negative occurrences
set true picture free
exercise inner strength
