Widespread violence, injustice, and tyranny are always preceded by attacks on language, such that fidelity to the dictionary is resistance to tyrants. Logocide is prelude to genocide, every time. After all, if you believe someone is a Nazi and fail to eliminate him when you have the chance, that makes you complicit in Nazism.
Similarly, accusations of "white privilege" are just a linguistic license to kill, since the slander bypasses the conscience, legitimizes envy, and sacralizes the violence that follows. This is just the latest iteration of a vertical anti-tradition extending all the way down to Genesis 3, when our archetypal human father is heard to exclaim,
You've got the wrong guy! It was the woman! It's her fault! And, -- with all due respect -- you gave her to me, so if we're laying our cards on the table, it's really your fault, is it not? Besides, the serpent was already here when I arrived.
You've no doubt noticed that the spasm of sociopathy to which we have been treated over the past week has been seeded and nurtured for over half a century by a race-obsessed media-academic complex that is drenched to the bone in lies.
If lies of this magnitude were susceptible to correction by fact, logic, or principle, they would have vanished long ago. But, as expressed in words that purportedly have no expiration date, -- or so we have heard from the wise --
He was a murderer from the beginning and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks according to his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies.
Timeless truth, or at least it has stood the test of 2000 years. That's a pretty good track record.
Coming at it from another angle, Paul claims in 2 Cor 3:17 that "where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty."
In a free country such as ours, inequality is an inevitable consequence of freedom. It's called the right be different, or in other words, who you actually are. You and I are unequal to everyone else, because we are individuals: we are free to be ourselves, and our self is utterly unique. Which is why it is written (by the Aphorist):
Freedom is the right to be different; equality is a ban on being different.
Indeed, what is the point of freedom if one is only free to be like all the other Don Lemmings and media-hackcrities, as in the diabolically misnamed "diversity," or "multiculturalism," or all those other totalitarian cults of noetic and pneumatic uniformity?
At this point we're way past the R & D and marketing phases, and are deep into the application: novel religion, same old gods. Imagine bowing before criminals and psychopaths to earn some sort of redemption? This is such a spiritual regression that it would represent a genuine leap in being to conduct a proper sacrifice and smear its blood on our doors in the hope that BLM will pass us by.
Enough insultainment. Back to our definitions.
Regarding the above-noted criminal blackslide into primitive appeasement of the angry and vengeful gods, Voegelin would insist this goes precisely to the reason why the discovery of monotheism by the ancient Hebrews was such a literal leap in being. It was a leap because it cleansed the cosmos of mere human projections in the form of gods, and situated the absolute principle outside and beyond the cosmos.
It will take awhile to explain exactly why this was such an advance, but we're running out of time, so we will only be able to strike a few preluminary sparks.
Speaking of our Hebrew friends and vertical relatives, Exodus, expressed abstractly and in principle, is "the process of transcendence." It goes to "the universal calling of humanity" toward "open existence in the metaxy oriented toward its transcendental pole."
Metaxy? Needlessly esoteric term IMO, for it is simply "the experience of human existence as 'between' lower and upper poles: man and the divine, imperfection and perfection, ignorance and knowledge" -- or, as we prefer to express it, (¶) <--> O, with the arrows representing the metaxy, AKA the in-between.
This goes to the necessity of open existence, specifically, a vertical openness to the transcendent pole, failing which the mind and soul suffer ontological shrinkage and become pathological. It is a chronic condition of low T -- not just of Testosterone but of Transcendence.
Leftism is by definition a pathologically closed world, since it is predicated on the denial in principle of transcendent reality. Thus, they inhabit a "second world," which is "a fictitious world imagined as true by a person using it to mask and thereby 'eclipse' genuine reality."
"Eclipse?" It is "the voluntary, perverse closure of consciousness against reality" (although I would say that it is more often unconscious, unless I'm misunderstanding something). It necessarily results in a kind of anxiety, since reality always persists despite our efforts to deny and evade it. This, in my opinion, is one of the sources of political correctness, which is an enforcement mechanism of the Lie, or the verbal glove over the mailed fist.
I'll leave you with a couple of haunting images, first of the hideous anti-Bob:
Followed by the genuine Bob of freedom and space age transcendental living:
