Racial Separatism is Humanitarian
MULTICULTURALISM WITHIN a nation leads to internal tension and eventual violent conflict. Six thousand years of human warfare proves this (i.e., roughly 80% of all wars throughout history are rooted in racial/ethnic/religious conflict). All races and ethnicities are tribal and separatist by nature — these innate characteristics of human nature must be accepted and public policy should be drafted with such characteristics in mind. Hence, racial/ethnic homogeneity should be encouraged by policy makers. Pursuing racial/ethnic homogeneity is the most humane way to organize the world’s peoples.
Any realistic humanitarian (such as myself) understands this reality of human nature and works within its framework.
I don’t have anything against Mexicans…. in Mexico.
I don’t have anything against Nigerians… in Nigeria.
Mexicans belong in Mexico. Nigerians belong in Nigeria. And so on. Global humanity works best when the world is divided into nation-states where each nation-state has racial/ethnic homogeneity. Nations can trade (i.e., fair trade, not so-called “free” trade), have diplomatic relations, compete in the Olympics, etc. And, of course, there should be tolerance between nations.
But when we start mixing very different peoples in the same nation, what happens? Trouble brews and internal violent conflict results — and that is not a humane way to organize the world’s peoples.
Global humanity has enough trouble maintaining peace between nations; we don’t need to make matters worse by promoting multiracial nations which always gravitate towards internal conflict.
Hence, humanitarians (like myself) who are realistic about human nature believe firmly in racial/ethnic separatism. On the other hand, those pushing for multiculturalism are actually anti-humanitarian since they are sowing the seeds of internal national conflict (via their promotion of multicultural/multiracial nations) even though they naively think they are “building a better world.”
The above is the core of my racial-realist/humanitarian philosophy.
