Hate, Oppression, and Charity; and the Worst of These is Charity
by David Sims
WHAT GOT THE WHITE man into trouble wasn’t his oppression, but his charity. Lots of other races have done their share of oppressing without incurring anywhere near the blowback that the White race is now having to put up with. That’s because other races oppressed far more thoroughly than Whites did.
The Arabs made sure that their Black slaves did not reproduce and did not live long enough to rebel. The White man got all morally wussified and turned his slaves loose. In Haiti, that got all the White people in the country murdered in a very short time. In Zimbabwe and in South Africa, the extermination of Whites is going on now, but at a slower pace.
It isn’t oppression that causes problems for an oppressor. It’s relenting from oppression that does. All history, both political and natural, teaches — over and over and over again — that you must never, never give up the decisive control that comes from a position of dominance.
Another thing: When was the last time you heard about someone getting beaten up or murdered by a gang of Australopithecus robustus? You haven’t heard of such a thing because there aren’t any A. robustus left in the world. Our own ancestors, H. erectus, killed them all off. Do you suppose there ever was any bad karma from that? No. Instead, the genus Homo basically owns the world and the genus Australopithecus is dead, dead, dead. We have no regrets. We have experienced no adverse consequences. Quite the contrary.
So, really, the best thing to do with an enemy race is exterminate it. People used to understand that quite well. It’s why the aliens who came to our planet from other star systems, in most of the early (pre-Political Correctness) science fiction stories, did not come in peace. They came to exterminate us, or to eat us, or to exploit us in one way or another — and take possession of the Earth.
That is how Nature really works. That’s why the only good books in Orson Scott Card’s Ender Wiggin Saga are Earth Afire and Ender’s Game. The later books are corrupted by moral wussiness.
But the best science fiction along these lines is Robert Heinlein’s Starship Troopers. Read chapter 12 of that book for a rather concise philosophical treatise embedded within a very well-told science fiction story.
