Is America Abandoning Its Values?...
Have you seen this rhetorical question lately?
Let’s go over some basic reality here.
The United States was born out of the 13 colonies. Thirteen British colonies. The critical era of our history was between 1607 and 1707. If you are not descended from British colonists that arrived in that century then you’re not one of “us”.
The American Revolution came over one and half centuries after Jamestown was founded.
And it was a revolution that most colonists wanted nothing to do with. Like all revolutions, it was crafted and led by a small clique of wealthy merchants and bankers who claimed that their “values and ideals” should be everyone’s values and ideals.
America did not begin in 1776, it began in 1607 at Jamestown.
The American identity is an ethnic, biological identity. It is an English/Scottish identity, detached from the homeland and settled in North America. Yes, there were the Dutch and German settlers scattered about too. But they were always seen as outsiders, right up through WWI. However, assimilation and intermarriage was possible with them as they were, genetically, cousins from across the North Sea.
Later immigrants from Ireland and Europe could never assimilate, as they were a bit to distant from us, genetically. So they carved out their own little enclaves across the vast continent and the only thing that held the imposed republic together was commerce and the overarching Anglo-Scottish underpinning (to play at words!).
Nations are not places. Nations are not ideals or value systems or beliefs.
A nation is one thing, and one thing alone, and that is an ethnic group. A specific, particular race of people.
Remember this when you hear those on the left and right talk about “our” values, “our” way of life and “our” freedoms.
Who is “us”?
Beliefs and values are manifestations of genetics. Different peoples will have different values.
The only way a society can change its values is if the people of that society are replaced by another people.
When you hear someone saying, “that’s not our values”, you are hearing one ethnic group manifesting its genetics in contrast to another ethnic group.
