This is how it begins…

By trying to erase white history as though it never happened.

They are titans of philosophy, without whose work an understanding of the subject is all but inconceivable.

But now students at a University of London college are demanding that such seminal figures as Plato, Descartes, Immanuel Kant and Bertrand Russell should be largely dropped from the curriculum simply because they are white.

These may be the names that underpin civilisation, yet the student union at the world-renowned School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) is insisting that when studying philosophy ‘the majority of philosophers on our courses’ should be from Africa and Asia.

The students say it is in order to ‘decolonise’ the ‘white institution’ that is their college.

Last night philosopher Sir Roger Scruton lambasted the union’s demand, saying: ‘This suggests ignorance and a determination not to overcome that ignorance. You can’t rule out a whole area of intellectual endeavour without having investigated it and clearly they haven’t investigated what they mean by white philosophy. If they think there is a colonial context from which Kant’s Critique of Pure Reason arose, I would like to hear it.’

The vice-chancellor of Buckingham University Sir Anthony Seldon said: ‘There is a real danger political correctness is getting out of control. We need to understand the world as it was and not to rewrite history as some might like it to have been.’

  1. We are so losing the ability to synthesise new ideas because of the shit. We are creating a generation of students who are wanting to dictate what people think. Just because you pay for it does not mean you change the meanings of words, ideologies and right off other established principles!

    SMH!

    1. I can’t believe these students can’t see that they’re wasting their own money. Getting to uni then trying to dictate what the professor says? Why don’t you just get a free book from the public library for all the good that does?

  2. This is an ultimate expression of bigotry in the saddle, closely coupled to another curse our society has incurred: credentialism. Bre’s question about “a free book from the library” is on point: libraries don’t award degrees or diplomas, and one can’t aspire to being a member of “the better sort” without a degree and a diploma to match!

    “How long will whites have to pay for colonization of other cultures? Of course we shouldn’t deny the atrocities committed, but how long are whites supposed to pay for things their ancestors did? ”

    Sorry Bre, but if you start out agreeing with these idiots that the colonization of other cultures by Western Civilization is either wrong or an “atrocity” you’ve already lost the argument.

    In most cases in history had it not been for that horrible white colonization the people involved would have never left the Middle Ages. And as far as atrocities go every single successful culture has gotten there by conquest which brings along with it atrocities.

    Western Civilization, that is the culture of Caucasians, is responsible for more advancements for mankind than all other cultures and races combined. It is very reasonable to understand a culture capable of creating Michelangelo, Mozart, Shakespeare, Carnegie, Edison, Einstein and a million more superior thinkers and creators will also lead in creating the Hitler’s and Stalin’s and some pretty bad actors. No pain, no pleasure.

    What these spoiled brats hate is America. So they hate Western Civ for creating it. They don’t think it’s fair America is white and Christian even though the people who created it were George, Benjamin, James and John not Mohammad, Chang, Jose and Kunta.

    Whites have as much right and legitimacy to create and establish their own culture as do Africans, Asians and Middle Easterners.. And they should be thankful we did or they wouldn’t have airplanes, cars, heart transplants, penicillin, or Viagra. No one is forced to stay here. I suggest they try and immigrate to the Orient or Africa. They will find those folks don’t want them and won’t take them because they don’t believe in “diversity” they believe in “identity”.

    1. I don’t think acknowledging that both sides of colonialism experienced atrocities is losing the argument. Especially since I used to live near an Indian reservation. But I agree completely with what you say. Colonialism in the end was a good thing and helped propel the western world (the white race) forward.

    These young people are at least a decade into the social engineering program by the time they get to college. My son had to read a paper written by an ” Indian chief ” describing how horrible whites are, and how wonderful the natives are. He was 13 at the time so I gave him a more balanced view backed with sources. He was really down until I shared the whole story about that. Whites are taught to hate themselves long before uni. Non whites are taught to hate whites long before uni. The ones behind this know full well what the agenda is.

    1. I saw an interview with an escaped KGB agent from back in the 80s. He said the demoralization had already begun way back then and that it might be irreversible. I hope he’s wrong but I also fear that he’s right.

    Bre, all I mean is when you start from: “I don’t think acknowledging that both sides of colonialism experienced atrocities is losing the argument.” as a white American all any leftist hears is blah…blah…blah colonial atrocities….blah… …blah. Leftists BEGIN at the atrocities and never, ever move forward.

    It’s just like arguing politics with a black person. The minute you corner them they start about slavery like that only existed in the American south. Even when you point out slavery ended over 150 years ago and neither they nor anyone they ever knew were slaves or slave owners it doesn’t matter. You’re still racist. Even when you point out that in America there was no “slave revolt” like Spartacus. In America white men fought and died to free the slaves while the slaves were working in the fields. There were a few blacks that fought ON BOTH SIDES but 600 thousand whites died to make black men free. You’re welcome. In no other culture or country on earth did that happen! Only here, in America, land of raaaacists.

    My wife is a South Korean immigrant who is now an American. This was her first Presidential election she could vote and she went Trump. She loves America and does not think it needs “fundamental transformation”. She pointed out I can go join her family on Korea. Even become a Korean citizen (though it is very, very difficult) but I’ll never be a “Korean”. Whereas she came here and after 12 years and 10 grand in lawyers and fees she’s and American. pretty impressive for a bunch of raaaacists I’d say.
