    Bernie Sanders's insurgent presidential campaign has opened up a debate about how social change happens in our society. The official version of how progress is won -- currently voiced by mainstream pundits and members of a spooked Democratic Party establishment -- goes something like this: politics is a tricky business, gains coming through the work...

    I don't remember a whole lot of discussion about gay marriage being a Constitutional right until it suddenly happened. Maybe the discussion was all over he media; I don't live in the United States. But it seemed like the Constitution was rather used to force legality regardless of any dissent. Just my speculation, but after seeing the White House drenched in gay pride colors (now that made, and got laughed at, in the international news!) I suspect it was blatant social engineering by judicial fiat.

    It’s funny that Obama had to lie about being on the fence about gay marriage to get elected. Now it’s practically a hate crime to have a second thought about it.

    I read a Hillary staffer’s email from the Wkileaks stash – she was saying Hillary still isn’t big on it so don’t even bring it up if it isn’t necessary.

    They pretty much do what they have to do/say to get elected.

    As far as the average citizen… they are just along for the ride. They will have to adjust their personal opinions to match what the elite tells them is moral this week.

    Another issue on which activists are organizing in a major way and that may be primed for a breakthrough is climate change — and a breakthrough is needed if civilization as we know it is to continue. - Mark & Paul Engler
     
    The Englers are loons. They are obviously too stupid to recognize fraud when it is right in front of them, and I don't plan on wasting my time telling them why hey are wrong. Let them wallow in their ignorance.

    I suspect they know it’s a fraud…It’s a useful Fraud from their perspective.

    Gay marriage became acceptable because of the "everything goes" mentality required in a deindustrialized and multicultural society of sellers.

    Have you ever met a homosexual who isn't a narcissist?

    “Have you ever met a homosexual who isn’t a narcissist?”

    Plenty, actually, and working in places you’d probably not expect.

    I think gay marriage has became acceptable because in the last 20 years, most people found out that some of their ordinary and clearly acceptable family members, neighbors and co-workers are gay. They have learned not to stereotype when it comes to sexual orientation because in actual fact (with only a few exceptions) being gay is no big deal.

    You are obviously unhinged. Take your Thorazine before you post next time.

    Average abrahamic response, those who don’t agree must be crazy. American exceptionalism is also an abrahamic ideology (I know you will call yourself ‘atheist’) as it is the jewish mentality imported by anglos.

    1. No self critical analysis of actions
    Ie they hate us for our freedoms, or why so much anti semitism

    2. All non american are savages, all those who don’t follow our value system must be bombed; or all goyim are animals.

    Just remember when you go to war, it’s to support transvestite homosexuals forcefully adopting kids & for black men to have ‘rapeerations’ with white anglo saxon women.

    You probably need the medicine more than me. Significant part of your population is on mental drugs & commits mass shootings.

    We have many guns here as well, don’t have that problem. Even when trump wins,

    He can’t change you wannabe jew cucks into real men.

    Also wizard of oz look at the connection between the west & israel due to christianity.

    Same with us & the East.

    Mark why not 101x? Your little economic theories fail to take in politics. Export global % also fell,

    I mean you stole capital & used it to advance but, claim & act like you're not a thief.

    Wizard is just some man, trying to relive his childhood with juvenile insults.

    I mean, what does it make a difference? There are also more christian & muslim enemies to deal with so it's just the same.

    You guys will learn after the war.

  • The British had something like 50,000 soldiers in the whole of India. The population of India was in the hundreds of millions. India was weeks away from the UK. Yet somehow the British managed to rule by terror, according to Singh. This doesn’t say much for the fighting qualities of the Indians does it!

    I take it you mean the first army from outside Europe to be deployed in Europe, not the first army to be deployed in Europe.

    On that count, the Indian Expeditionary Force A units [I Indian Corps as they were eventually designated] appear to have been disembarking at Marseilles September 26-30, 1914. That is definitely quite early, but not surprising for a large body of already formed regulars such as the Indian Army could produce [Canada at this time was recruiting almost from scratch and its earliest battalions didn't even sail until later in 1914, not fighting until first Ypres in 1915; I assume Australia had a similar cycle]. So far as I can tell, La Bassee in the second half of October was their first battle, during the 'race to the sea' phase of the 1914 campaign. Again, very early.

    Nevertheless, not first non-Europeans to deploy or fight.

    I have a hard time believing the French weren't already pulling in Africans by the end of August but can't find dates for disembarkation in France quickly.

    The Moroccan division of the French army had, in early September, already taken part in the first battle of the Marne. It wasn't wholly Moroccan, to be sure. It included some Legion units which had Europeans in them, and at one point Malagasy troops. Not sure its exact composition in September 1914. But it was a formed body of troops from outside Europe that included mainly non-European natives.

    Isn't the Indian army mentioned along with the rest on Remembrance Day? They have an Indian Army cemetery in England where there appear to be commemorations every year. I seem to keep seeing documentary accounts of Indian service in France on TV, as well as, of course, plenty of reference to Indian service in the Middle East in both world wars. At Whitehall, when the national service is carried out, do they just mention Britain's own dead [that would not seem inappropriate; the rest of the old empire has its own services and commemorate their own dead, not Britain's specifically] or do they rhyme off all the then-Dominions and colonies and amazingly omit India, or what? If so, I concede surprise. I have never encountered any significant commemoration of the old British army that forgets the Indian army. Maybe specific engagements in which it didn't fight, but that would be it. They loved the Indian army.

    Entirely willing to concede the economic impact of the Raj for these purposes, but all I can find for combined total of famine deaths is more like 60 million. Not hundreds of millions. A figure that size would have come nearer to depopulating the whole country, depending on how many hundreds of millions.

    Also, famine, even when the ultimate product of exploitative policy, still seems to me morally distinct from rounding up millions of people for deliberate extermination, or rounding up peaceful villagers in such numbers and machine gunning them into ditches, etc. Even the massacres of the British required someone to rebel or riot first. The Germans and Russians were content to round up people by the millions for massacre even in the absence of any kind of resistance to their rule. The murder was the point, not merely a tool of suppression.

    So yeah, in an admittedly base competition I think the Brits were still better than the Germans or Russians.

    If you replaced a victorious but utterly economically, militarily and morally spent Britain committed to liberal ideological claims in 1945, with a victorious Germany riding high on quite different moral values, and somehow had India in their clutches, they might not have succeeded in holding India but they would have made a much more impressive show of it.

    But the population of India increased dramatically during the period of British rule, FFS!

    Lol gandhi never won freedom, he was controlled opposition.

    Second where does this perception that britain was better than soviets or nazis come from?

    It not only starved 100s of millions but took India from 30% of World GDP to 2 in 90 years. Both Nazis & Soviets can claim economic achievement at the very least.

    In top of that, they tried to convert entire regions to the cucked suicide cult called christianity (source of modern sjws you so complain about)

    Even until recently, it sent 'aid' in the form of evangelical or environmental ngos who wish to convert people or ban festivals however oppose bans on animal slaughter.

    Help stall electricity projects & then shoot a video about people with no electricity & blame the government. Why do you think they get scared when we test Nukes?

    After the collapse of america, they know london is getting hammered. These same christians are the ones who banned the olympics you 'whites' have so much love for.

    http://yugaparivartan.com/2016/01/22/from-fall-of-olympics-to-jallikattu-ban/

    There were dozens of rebellions & hundreds of skirmishes/battles in the 90 years between 1857 & 1947.

    Many of the ww1 veterans especially Sikhs came back & became insurgents. Same with ww2,

    Notice how the first army to be deployed in Europa was Indian Army yet it's never mentioned during remembrance day.

    Population of Indian subcontinent in 1800, before the British started managing things, 185 million. Population in 1950, shortly after they left, 450 million.
    But apparently hundreds of millions were starved!

    I think the lasting impact of england is seen in pakistan, & you deserve every crime they commit against you up to nuclear genocide.

    Of course the real lasting impact on the whole of India and Pakistan of what you very oddly call “[E]england” as if you were seriously ignorant of British history and of the part the Empire played in creating great career opportunities for the Scots and Irish (and Welsh) is population growth. Both modern medicine and hygeine, and improved crops, plus modern transport of grain and other foodstuffs have led to the growth of population way beyond what was possible before 1800.

    That explains why, when India’s regular cycle of (largely monsoon failure) famines occurred under the Raj the numbers of deaths might be larger. It also meant of course that there are now many more happy Indians than there would have been without the West’s impact on India from the 18th century to date:-)

    The actual british guy has already replied respectfully & admitted half of this is true. I don't know why you're getting irritated lol.

    No the point is simply this. The Industrial Revolution made Europe and the US 100 times wealthier and able to produce things 100 times faster and India and China basically stayed the same. Nothing you posted refutes that. It just said the Brits stopped importing Indian goods. Obviously if India was so dependent on Britain for its exports that its share of world production falls by a factor of 15, they could not have been producing much in the first place. They had a lot of people who could sit in front of a spinning wheel or loom all day long unlike Britain so it would seem like they had a large output. Once the steam engine allowed hundreds of looms to run with only a few people then the output of India isn’t so impressive anymore.

    These tariffs did not “destroy” Indian industry. They destroyed inefficient Indian manual labor intensive crafts. The Indians were free to sell their inferior fabrics to anybody who would buy them (obviously nobody). All the tariffs do is make the transition period where high start up costs by British manufacturers can cause some companies to go under while they work the bugs out. Machines were going to make cloth it was just a matter of time.

    I wonder why you capitlaised SIKH in one reply? Was it a trolling tease to see who was well informed enough to pick up the clues? After all Sikhism has/had a history remarkably like that of Christianity and is/was as far from poly/pantheist Hindism as the Early Fathers (cp. the Ten Gurus) were from the Roman poly/pantheist imperial religion. Monistic as well as monotheistic, but so are some Christians. Against caste and slavery but there were of course some fudges amongst rich landowners. Martyrdom by the ruling emperor etc. I suspect that you don’t care a damn for India’s premodern traditions. You must surely know that British missionaries – like those of all Protestant countries at least – were a private enterprise and highly varied. Just as Islam seems earlier to have had a natural appeal to the lower castes (whose conditions are surely not amongst the sub-continental traditions you are proud of) Christian missionaries I understand also had success with the underdogs in India.

    I’m not at all religious but know a fair bit about religions and I can say that your assertion that the Abrahamic religions are undebateable (apparently in contrast to some subcontintental religious tradition???) is absurd unless you have some very confining criteria in mind. In fact it is so absurd that, rather than pour out 1000 words to illustrate its falsity I invite you to explain what you meant, in particular what contrast you have in mind when you assert that undebateability.

    Also, given that despite some Hindu communities’ prejudices being given brutal effect to, females are at least a rather large minority in India, and given that Sikhism has always been against burning widows but lacked the power to do it outside the Punjab, is it not more than a small benefit of British rule that it was substantially abolished throughout India?

    It is only incidentally about India and is really about justifying the protection of infant industries against the free trade purists. It points out that the tariffs were imposed successively long before Britain in any sense controlled India. Assuming however that they were heavily ramped up at a critical period of the conversion to steam power at the beginning of the 19th century the case for the Brits "de-industrialising" India then falls a bit short - starting with the problem of calling India's cheap labour regime "industry" in the pertinent sense. [To make a lot of people unemployed may be disastrous but not the same as, for example, the killing or exiling of the educated (many examples but Cambodia may be the purest and worst, but don't ignore self-inflicted wounds like France's effective expulsion of the Huguenots) or the theft - USSR in Germany - or banning of important skills or machinery].

    The biggest problem with your argument in so far as it relies on the facts asserted in that linked piece is that it presupposes that India depended on exporting to the relatively tiny populstion of Britain. France alone was 3 or 4 times as populous without counting China. Then there is the dependence on the British East India Company's control of Bengal for making the case that "India" was "deindustrialised" by the British nation. More is needed to make any kind of case though I remain grateful for being pointed towards the evidence of protectionism. It is a reminder that the US thrived on appropriating intellectual property well over 100 years before it became aggressively protective of IP and suffered much legal and illegal appropriation in China.

    I prefer Founding Fathers and Ratifiers and, no, there’s nothing wrong with “Founding Fathers.” The superior term would be?

    Everybody with a brain knew real estate was in a bubble. From what I read only rich people got to play the game of buying naked credit default swaps. The best way for a small player to play was to short the mortgage companies. The problem with that is if you shorted in 2006 you might have been squeezed out by 2008.

    I take it you mean the first army from outside Europe to be deployed in Europe, not the first army to be deployed in Europe.

    On that count, the Indian Expeditionary Force A units [I Indian Corps as they were eventually designated] appear to have been disembarking at Marseilles September 26-30, 1914. That is definitely quite early, but not surprising for a large body of already formed regulars such as the Indian Army could produce [Canada at this time was recruiting almost from scratch and its earliest battalions didn't even sail until later in 1914, not fighting until first Ypres in 1915; I assume Australia had a similar cycle]. So far as I can tell, La Bassee in the second half of October was their first battle, during the 'race to the sea' phase of the 1914 campaign. Again, very early.

    Nevertheless, not first non-Europeans to deploy or fight.

    I have a hard time believing the French weren't already pulling in Africans by the end of August but can't find dates for disembarkation in France quickly.

    The Moroccan division of the French army had, in early September, already taken part in the first battle of the Marne. It wasn't wholly Moroccan, to be sure. It included some Legion units which had Europeans in them, and at one point Malagasy troops. Not sure its exact composition in September 1914. But it was a formed body of troops from outside Europe that included mainly non-European natives.

    Isn't the Indian army mentioned along with the rest on Remembrance Day? They have an Indian Army cemetery in England where there appear to be commemorations every year. I seem to keep seeing documentary accounts of Indian service in France on TV, as well as, of course, plenty of reference to Indian service in the Middle East in both world wars. At Whitehall, when the national service is carried out, do they just mention Britain's own dead [that would not seem inappropriate; the rest of the old empire has its own services and commemorate their own dead, not Britain's specifically] or do they rhyme off all the then-Dominions and colonies and amazingly omit India, or what? If so, I concede surprise. I have never encountered any significant commemoration of the old British army that forgets the Indian army. Maybe specific engagements in which it didn't fight, but that would be it. They loved the Indian army.

    Entirely willing to concede the economic impact of the Raj for these purposes, but all I can find for combined total of famine deaths is more like 60 million. Not hundreds of millions. A figure that size would have come nearer to depopulating the whole country, depending on how many hundreds of millions.

    Also, famine, even when the ultimate product of exploitative policy, still seems to me morally distinct from rounding up millions of people for deliberate extermination, or rounding up peaceful villagers in such numbers and machine gunning them into ditches, etc. Even the massacres of the British required someone to rebel or riot first. The Germans and Russians were content to round up people by the millions for massacre even in the absence of any kind of resistance to their rule. The murder was the point, not merely a tool of suppression.

    So yeah, in an admittedly base competition I think the Brits were still better than the Germans or Russians.

    If you replaced a victorious but utterly economically, militarily and morally spent Britain committed to liberal ideological claims in 1945, with a victorious Germany riding high on quite different moral values, and somehow had India in their clutches, they might not have succeeded in holding India but they would have made a much more impressive show of it.

    Not sure about britain, my experience has been in north america.

    India was allied with japan & germany though. The russians & germans were concerned with murder yes but, the british wanted something far worse.

    Cause a famine then flood the area with missionaries..

    I see total excess mortality as very high however the direct famine seems to be kept at 60-85 million yes.

    End of the day, the narrative that england civilized the savages among other things (which most of older generation believe) is the issue.

    It’s the central story of england, & really all it has left/going for it at this stage.

You seem to be that sad sort of expat, a deracinated Sikh who has lost his roots but never succeeded well enough in America or the UK to feel otherwise than a resentful failure.

    I'm not sure what you think all the Abrahamic faiths have in common to justify writing of "Abrahamic ideology" in the Marxist or whatever other version you are adopting. Does Hinduism or Sikhism make more sense or promote better morals?

    Every britshit claims this, can never back it up & ignores the education system which produces these imbeciles.

    Well as a matter of fact this is well documented by Angus Maddison in: "World Economy: A Millenial perspective"

    http://www.amazon.com/World-Economy-Development-Centre-Studies/dp/9264022619/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1457559069&sr=8-2&keywords=Angus+Maddison

    Maddison was the pre-eminent economic data historian in modern times and offered rare insights into global economic performance over a much longer arc than most. On page 127 you will find a table that sets forth the shares of World GDP, 1000-1998. There you will find that Asia (ex-Japan) contributed 62% in in 1500 and dropped to 36.2 by 1800. The larger contribution was from India which at that point exceeded the economy of China,

    All that being said, I am unable to comprehend entirely what Mr. Singh's is driving at, given that the whole point of empire was to further the interests of the colonial power, and England was a far less exploitative one compared to, say the Dutch who [by Maddison's estimates] funnelled away about 60% of Indonesia's savings compared to England's 20% during the period 1868-1930. Needless to say in both cases these capital transfers were absolutely critical inputs for the Industrial Revolution that transformed the West. It might be validly argued that England's contribution to India is better assessed in the lasting impact of English, which cemented diverse states into a nation, not to mention the legal, financial, educational and scientific institutions that it bequeathed.

    I think the lasting impact of england is seen in pakistan, & you deserve every crime they commit against you up to nuclear genocide.

    Of course the real lasting impact on the whole of India and Pakistan of what you very oddly call "[E]england" as if you were seriously ignorant of British history and of the part the Empire played in creating great career opportunities for the Scots and Irish (and Welsh) is population growth. Both modern medicine and hygeine, and improved crops, plus modern transport of grain and other foodstuffs have led to the growth of population way beyond what was possible before 1800.

    That explains why, when India's regular cycle of (largely monsoon failure) famines occurred under the Raj the numbers of deaths might be larger. It also meant of course that there are now many more happy Indians than there would have been without the West's impact on India from the 18th century to date:-)

The US does not exist for the American people. American people exist to legitimize the US as the world policeman and enforcer of the world elites. Sadly, majority of Americans in their ignorance are more than happy to provide this legitimization. Kicking some poor country ass is one way of feeling powerful (by proxy) by powerless Americans.

Erased history, as we await the next decree from our rulers and other betters.

    Piffle indeed.

    Apparently Egypt under “the repressive military government” is worse than when it was under the Muslim Brotherhood. Thins are bad under Gen. Sisi who has called for a Muslim religious revolution. However, they were un-bad when Christians endured torture and beatings under Morsi.

    And how could the authors resist the ever-specious global warming hogwash or hand wringing over the XL pipeline?

    We need to be aware of the homo agenda as the new imperialism.

    It’s interesting that Liberals expressed outrage about conservative German reaction against Weimar cultural decadence but have generally sympathized with communist moral rage against decadent American capitalist influence.

    The very Liberals who rooted for the decadents in Bob Fosse’s CABARET against the puritanical Nazis were rooting for the puritanical Castroite/Guevaraite communists against the decadence and degenerate influence of American capital in Cuba in THE GODFATHER PART 2.
    Liberals who celebrated the decadence of Weimar Germany denounced the decadence of Havana under Batista, the stooge of US capitalism.

    Many Liberals and all Leftists also lionized the puritanical Viet Cong and North Vietnamese communists against US influence in Saigon that was turning Viets into gum-chewing consumers and prostitutes.

    When Jews used decadence and degeneration against white people(as in Weimar Germany), that was all very good.
    But when non-whites waged a moral war against Western Capitalist materialism dominated by Wasp America, they were the good guys and American power was the bad guy: not only destroyer of lives but corrupter of souls.

    But because US is no longer Wasp-American-dominated but Jewish-dominated(and because Jews gave up on classic socialism and fully embraced globo-capitalism as their cash cow), globalist Jews are now openly using decadence and degeneration as a Culture War against the entire world, and homo activists are their main agents in this.

    Jews are now pushing the Weimarization of the world.

    On the surface, the Civil Rights Movement made good, actually great, sense. Why should the Negroes be denied full equality on the basis of mere skin color?
    But it was a tragic mistake in one crucial sense. The difference between whites and blacks isn't merely one of skin color. Blacks have the Jafro soul that makes them act crazy, and they are tougher and more aggressive. They are the biggest threat to civilization. A small number of Negroes cannot destroy civilization. They might even add some color and rhythm to it. But too many Negroes means trouble. This is why EU, Brazil, and even US may be doomed. Too many Negroes. This is why white Libs hope that immigration's browning/yellowing will serve as buffer to the blackening.

    The inverse of US is South Africa. US in 1960s was 10% black, the rest mostly white. And it was great. South Africa at end of Apartheid was the opposite. 90% black, 10% whites. And there was no way SA could succeed with or without apartheid. Indeed, it is bound to grow worse without it since democracy favors blacks who are nuts.

    So, the lesson of CRM is that lofty ideals are rendered worthless IF they are premised on fatally flawed mis-reading of reality.
    If indeed blacks were no more than whites with black skin, I think CRM would have succeeded. But it has failed in so many areas because too many blacks are riled up with Jafro souls and have more muscles.

    As for dictators, their fall is good, but what replaced them isn't necessarily better. The problem is that so many new democracies came into being with support of US, therefore they became political and cultural puppets/satellites of the American Empire. Look at Poland. How great to see the passing of communist tyranny. That was good. But Poland became a whore of the US and EU.
    A nation can be politically democratic at home but still lack genuine sovereignty as a puppet of US. Look at not only EU nations --- essentially tools of the US --- but Japan, Taiwan, and South Korea. They have elections and large measure of social freedoms, but they are political puppets of the US. In a way, one could argue China is freer. China is now mostly socially free like other Asian nations. But there are no elections, so it is undemocratic. BUT, it has national sovereignty whereas Japan, SK, and Taiwan must follow US foreign policy dictates.
    And look at Latin America. So much of neo-democratic neo-liberal reforms were really meant to turn those nations into satellites of the Wall Street gang, and this was what set off another round of anti-American reaction in the 2000s, esp under the gross gargoylean leadership of Bush II.

    As for the Middle East and North Africa, I think one would have to be tarded and sick not to realize that the 'democracies' imposed on those parts by the US have turned out to be just as bad or even worse than what had prevailed under strongman rule.

    Another problem with democracies is that their freedom makes them easier as targets of US covert-imperialism. We saw this in Ukraine and US. Now, I like the idea of democracy and freedom and etc. But US intelligence-and-subversion networks have a way of using all sorts of means, especially through so-called NGO's, to funnel money and means to free societies so that US puppets will gain control and serve Washington. We saw this with Suckassvillain in Georgia. Or that toady in Colombia.

    And homos have been among the main agents of US neo-imperialism that is controlled by globo-Zionists. Jewish elites seek out homo communities in every nation, give them tons of cash, spread homo agenda. Once homos rise in power with US backing, they work to undermine national culture and values in favor of globalist ones of decadence, whore-ishness, Afro-pimpery, and urban elite snottiness.

    As for 'gay marriage' and homomania, they are not about equality or tolerance. They are about coercion and lies. We are forced to celebrate homos, in the way we are not forced to celebrate incest or polygamy. If equality rules America, why don't we have incest pride parades and polygamy pride parades? Because incest-sexuals and polygamists don't have the power to control culture and politics. Jews control the US and they've chosen the creative homo community as their main partners-in-crime.

    Also, forcing people to believe that unequal things are equal isn't true equality. That's like saying lies and truths have equal value. But forcing people to believe 2 + 2 =5 is of same value as 2 + 2 = 4 is a corruption of equality. Equality must be about things of equal value.

    The idea that men whose idea of 'sex' involves fecal penetration are on the same biological and moral plane as men and women who have proper sex to produce life is pure decadence leading to degeneration. The idea of 'two daddies' or 'two mommies' is a total lie, and indeed for such to become actual reality, we have to resort to Frankenstein science that perverts the very meaning of life.

    True tolerance is admitting that some people are born homo and that they should be left alone to be fruity. Anything beyond that is sick decadence.

    Hard to disagree.

    Maddison was the pre-eminent economic data historian in modern times and offered rare insights into global economic performance over a much longer arc than most. On page 127 you will find a table that sets forth the shares of World GDP, 1000-1998. There you will find that Asia (ex-Japan) contributed 62% in in 1500 and dropped to 36.2 by 1800. The larger contribution was from India which at that point exceeded the economy of China,

    All that being said, I am unable to comprehend entirely what Mr. Singh's is driving at, given that the whole point of empire was to further the interests of the colonial power, and England was a far less exploitative one compared to, say the Dutch who [by Maddison's estimates] funnelled away about 60% of Indonesia's savings compared to England's 20% during the period 1868-1930. Needless to say in both cases these capital transfers were absolutely critical inputs for the Industrial Revolution that transformed the West. It might be validly argued that England's contribution to India is better assessed in the lasting impact of English, which cemented diverse states into a nation, not to mention the legal, financial, educational and scientific institutions that it bequeathed.

    There you will find that Asia (ex-Japan) contributed 62% in in 1500 and dropped to 36.2 by 1800.

They have learned not to stereotype when it comes to sexual orientation because in actual fact (with only a few exceptions) being gay is no big deal.

    “… being gay is no big deal.”

    You might want to tell that to the people who have had their lives and businesses ruined by the gaystapo. And it would be helpful to try to understand how a young boy’s life has been shattered by being buggered by homosexuals.

    You want Switzerland in the US? It’s very easy. Just restore the state rights and autonomy so state taxes constitute 70-80% of all taxes. Federal government is very weak and small in Switzerland. Switzerland was created by people for the people while the US was created by elite masons for the purpose of facilitating liberal revolution throughout the world. The US does not exist for the American people. American people exist to legitimize the US as the world policeman and enforcer of the world elites.

    I take it you mean the first army from outside Europe to be deployed in Europe, not the first army to be deployed in Europe.

    On that count, the Indian Expeditionary Force A units [I Indian Corps as they were eventually designated] appear to have been disembarking at Marseilles September 26-30, 1914. That is definitely quite early, but not surprising for a large body of already formed regulars such as the Indian Army could produce [Canada at this time was recruiting almost from scratch and its earliest battalions didn't even sail until later in 1914, not fighting until first Ypres in 1915; I assume Australia had a similar cycle]. So far as I can tell, La Bassee in the second half of October was their first battle, during the 'race to the sea' phase of the 1914 campaign. Again, very early.

    Nevertheless, not first non-Europeans to deploy or fight.

    I have a hard time believing the French weren't already pulling in Africans by the end of August but can't find dates for disembarkation in France quickly.

    The Moroccan division of the French army had, in early September, already taken part in the first battle of the Marne. It wasn't wholly Moroccan, to be sure. It included some Legion units which had Europeans in them, and at one point Malagasy troops. Not sure its exact composition in September 1914. But it was a formed body of troops from outside Europe that included mainly non-European natives.

    Isn't the Indian army mentioned along with the rest on Remembrance Day? They have an Indian Army cemetery in England where there appear to be commemorations every year. I seem to keep seeing documentary accounts of Indian service in France on TV, as well as, of course, plenty of reference to Indian service in the Middle East in both world wars. At Whitehall, when the national service is carried out, do they just mention Britain's own dead [that would not seem inappropriate; the rest of the old empire has its own services and commemorate their own dead, not Britain's specifically] or do they rhyme off all the then-Dominions and colonies and amazingly omit India, or what? If so, I concede surprise. I have never encountered any significant commemoration of the old British army that forgets the Indian army. Maybe specific engagements in which it didn't fight, but that would be it. They loved the Indian army.

    Entirely willing to concede the economic impact of the Raj for these purposes, but all I can find for combined total of famine deaths is more like 60 million. Not hundreds of millions. A figure that size would have come nearer to depopulating the whole country, depending on how many hundreds of millions.

    Also, famine, even when the ultimate product of exploitative policy, still seems to me morally distinct from rounding up millions of people for deliberate extermination, or rounding up peaceful villagers in such numbers and machine gunning them into ditches, etc. Even the massacres of the British required someone to rebel or riot first. The Germans and Russians were content to round up people by the millions for massacre even in the absence of any kind of resistance to their rule. The murder was the point, not merely a tool of suppression.

    So yeah, in an admittedly base competition I think the Brits were still better than the Germans or Russians.

    If you replaced a victorious but utterly economically, militarily and morally spent Britain committed to liberal ideological claims in 1945, with a victorious Germany riding high on quite different moral values, and somehow had India in their clutches, they might not have succeeded in holding India but they would have made a much more impressive show of it.

    Well said.

    And look at Latin America. So much of neo-democratic neo-liberal reforms were really meant to turn those nations into satellites of the Wall Street gang, and this was what set off another round of anti-American reaction in the 2000s, esp under the gross gargoylean leadership of Bush II.

    As for the Middle East and North Africa, I think one would have to be tarded and sick not to realize that the ‘democracies’ imposed on those parts by the US have turned out to be just as bad or even worse than what had prevailed under strongman rule.

    Another problem with democracies is that their freedom makes them easier as targets of US covert-imperialism. We saw this in Ukraine and US. Now, I like the idea of democracy and freedom and etc. But US intelligence-and-subversion networks have a way of using all sorts of means, especially through so-called NGO’s, to funnel money and means to free societies so that US puppets will gain control and serve Washington. We saw this with Suckassvillain in Georgia. Or that toady in Colombia.

    And homos have been among the main agents of US neo-imperialism that is controlled by globo-Zionists. Jewish elites seek out homo communities in every nation, give them tons of cash, spread homo agenda. Once homos rise in power with US backing, they work to undermine national culture and values in favor of globalist ones of decadence, whore-ishness, Afro-pimpery, and urban elite snottiness.

    As for ‘gay marriage’ and homomania, they are not about equality or tolerance. They are about coercion and lies. We are forced to celebrate homos, in the way we are not forced to celebrate incest or polygamy. If equality rules America, why don’t we have incest pride parades and polygamy pride parades? Because incest-sexuals and polygamists don’t have the power to control culture and politics. Jews control the US and they’ve chosen the creative homo community as their main partners-in-crime.

    Also, forcing people to believe that unequal things are equal isn’t true equality. That’s like saying lies and truths have equal value. But forcing people to believe 2 + 2 =5 is of same value as 2 + 2 = 4 is a corruption of equality. Equality must be about things of equal value.

    The idea that men whose idea of ‘sex’ involves fecal penetration are on the same biological and moral plane as men and women who have proper sex to produce life is pure decadence leading to degeneration. The idea of ‘two daddies’ or ‘two mommies’ is a total lie, and indeed for such to become actual reality, we have to resort to Frankenstein science that perverts the very meaning of life.

    True tolerance is admitting that some people are born homo and that they should be left alone to be fruity. Anything beyond that is sick decadence.

    I think gay marriage has became acceptable because in the last 20 years, most people found out that some of their ordinary and clearly acceptable family members, neighbors and co-workers are gay. They have learned not to stereotype when it comes to sexual orientation because in actual fact (with only a few exceptions) being gay is no big deal.

    That’s completely delusional. At best, homosexuality is a debilitating mental illness which typically comes along with numerous, severe comorbidities. Maybe you know some gays who manage to keep it together long enough to manage Thanksgiving with their family. More likely, it’s by watching Will and Grace that you’ve come by the ludicrous stereotype of gays you use.

    I take it you mean the first army from outside Europe to be deployed in Europe, not the first army to be deployed in Europe.

    On that count, the Indian Expeditionary Force A units [I Indian Corps as they were eventually designated] appear to have been disembarking at Marseilles September 26-30, 1914. That is definitely quite early, but not surprising for a large body of already formed regulars such as the Indian Army could produce [Canada at this time was recruiting almost from scratch and its earliest battalions didn't even sail until later in 1914, not fighting until first Ypres in 1915; I assume Australia had a similar cycle]. So far as I can tell, La Bassee in the second half of October was their first battle, during the 'race to the sea' phase of the 1914 campaign. Again, very early.

    Nevertheless, not first non-Europeans to deploy or fight.

    I have a hard time believing the French weren't already pulling in Africans by the end of August but can't find dates for disembarkation in France quickly.

    The Moroccan division of the French army had, in early September, already taken part in the first battle of the Marne. It wasn't wholly Moroccan, to be sure. It included some Legion units which had Europeans in them, and at one point Malagasy troops. Not sure its exact composition in September 1914. But it was a formed body of troops from outside Europe that included mainly non-European natives.

    Isn't the Indian army mentioned along with the rest on Remembrance Day? They have an Indian Army cemetery in England where there appear to be commemorations every year. I seem to keep seeing documentary accounts of Indian service in France on TV, as well as, of course, plenty of reference to Indian service in the Middle East in both world wars. At Whitehall, when the national service is carried out, do they just mention Britain's own dead [that would not seem inappropriate; the rest of the old empire has its own services and commemorate their own dead, not Britain's specifically] or do they rhyme off all the then-Dominions and colonies and amazingly omit India, or what? If so, I concede surprise. I have never encountered any significant commemoration of the old British army that forgets the Indian army. Maybe specific engagements in which it didn't fight, but that would be it. They loved the Indian army.

    Entirely willing to concede the economic impact of the Raj for these purposes, but all I can find for combined total of famine deaths is more like 60 million. Not hundreds of millions. A figure that size would have come nearer to depopulating the whole country, depending on how many hundreds of millions.

    Also, famine, even when the ultimate product of exploitative policy, still seems to me morally distinct from rounding up millions of people for deliberate extermination, or rounding up peaceful villagers in such numbers and machine gunning them into ditches, etc. Even the massacres of the British required someone to rebel or riot first. The Germans and Russians were content to round up people by the millions for massacre even in the absence of any kind of resistance to their rule. The murder was the point, not merely a tool of suppression.

    So yeah, in an admittedly base competition I think the Brits were still better than the Germans or Russians.

    If you replaced a victorious but utterly economically, militarily and morally spent Britain committed to liberal ideological claims in 1945, with a victorious Germany riding high on quite different moral values, and somehow had India in their clutches, they might not have succeeded in holding India but they would have made a much more impressive show of it.

    I think Australia had introduced some kind of National Service about 1909 so was perhaps a bit ahead of Canada in readiness to fight the Empire’s battles. Quite a few officers would have served in the Boer War (1899-1902) and others had many years as citizen soldiers who were ready enough for Gallipoli where they landed first on 25th April 1915. (My maternal grandfather and at least one of his brothers were volunteers in South Africa but my grandfather at least was a family man with many daughters who didn’t serve in WW1).

    Gay marriage became acceptable because to oppose it meant losing your job or worse. People say they support it or have made themselves forget about it because of the threat that hangs over anyone who doesn't comply with the prevailing ideology, which is always determined by progressives using fringe groups to break up anything that smacks of tradition (or religion, God forbid!). In other words, most are lying. This is the same with race; being called "racist" is worse than actually BEING a murderer, rapist, or pedophile. SO no one can be honest about race expect in places like this, where we are somewhat protected. Like another commenter said in another article on Unz by Ilana Mercer, "I'm sick of black people." I'm also sick of gay people. The State determining what is right and wrong to believe is social change I can do without, whether or not I happen to agree with the whims of The State and its progressive moralists or not.

  • One dramatic example was Serbia.

    More of a counter-example, surely, if you account for the reality that Otpor would probably have been crushed had it not been for multi-million dollar (and who knows what black budget dirty tricks and propaganda) external assistance from the world’s only superpower, whose dirty work they were doing.

    I mean, even Wikipedia talks about it openly:

    By late November 2000 information started appearing about substantial outside assistance Otpor! received leading up to the revolution. Otpor! was a recipient of substantial funds from U.S. government-affiliated organizations such as the National Endowment for Democracy (NED), International Republican Institute (IRI), and US Agency for International Development (USAID).[38]

    Contacting various officials from the U.S. based organizations, in his New York Times Magazine piece, journalist Roger Cohen sought to shed some light on the extent of American logistical and financial assistance received by Otpor. Paul B. McCarthy from the Washington-based NED stated that Otpor! received the majority of US$3 million spent by NED in Serbia from September 1998 until October 2000. At the same time, McCarthy himself held a series of meetings with Otpor’s leaders in Podgorica, as well as Szeged and Budapest.[38]

    Just how much of the US resources appropriated in the year 2000 by USAID, for democracy and governance, which included support to groups that worked to bring an end to the Milošević era through peaceful, democratic means, went to Otpor is not clear. However, what is clear is that the Democratic Opposition of Serbia—a broad alliance of those seeking Slobodan Milošević’s downfall, among them the Democratic Party (Serbia) Otpor would later merge with—received in excess of $30 million to “purchase cell phones and computers for DOS’s leadership and to recruit and train an army of 20,000 election monitors” as well as to supplement them with “a sophisticated marketing campaign with posters, badges and T-shirts.”[39] Donald L. Pressley, the assistant administrator at USAID said that several hundred thousand dollars were given to Otpor directly for similar purposes.[38]

    Daniel Calingaert, an official with IRI, said Otpor! received “some of the US$1.8 million” his institute spent in the country throughout 2000, but didn’t specify the concrete figures. He also said he met Otpor! leaders “seven to ten times” in Montenegro (then part of FR Yugoslavia), and Hungary, beginning in October 1999.[38] IRI particularly focused a lot of its attention on Otpor!, organizing a seminar on nonviolent resistance at the Hilton Hotel in Budapest during March 2000 and paying for about two dozen Otpor! leaders to attend it.[40] Lectured by retired U.S. Army Colonel Robert Helvey, who did two tours of duty in the Vietnam War before devoting himself to study of nonviolent resistance methods around the world, including those used in Burma and the civil rights struggle in the American South, the Serbian students received training in such matters as how to organize a strike, how to communicate with symbols, how to overcome fear and how to undermine the authorities.[40]

    Whether this formed a part of a concerted American effort to remove Milošević remains speculative, though it bears mentioning that US Secretary of State Madeleine Albright “had told her officials that she wished Milošević gone from power by the time her term of office ended in 2002″.[39]

    Otpor!

    And of course, if Milosevic hadn’t been defeated in a major war aimed at toppling him, he might still be there and Europe might not now have a nasty muslim narco-ministate propped up by NATO troops staining its map.

    That the author can refer to immigrant 'rights' without spending one moment exploring why it might not deserve to be pursued as a great political cause is breathtaking: Immigrants have the privilege to take up residence when it is granted, and the right to be returned to their home country when it is not.

    In the tacit worldview of the author, “rights” are tools to overturn the established order (that is, power in the hands of white male gentiles). Therefore, people who quite literally by domestic law, the law of nations and custom are without any right to be in the United States magically have an extra-statutory supreme right to reside in the United States and enjoy all of the benefits and privileges of citizenship by virtue of being brown. I have no doubt that should Hillary succeed Mr. Obama in the White House and as is foretasted appoint several Justices, this “right” will be said to have been found in the United States Constitution.

    Its hard to be sure of the full depth of your ignorance because verbal junk like "constant normative inversion" associated with some "Abrahamic ideology" obscures vision. You sound like one of those classic joke figures who claimed to be X.Y. Singh FBA Jaipur [the F standing for Failed] after spouting the nonsense sociology he hadn't quite understood.
    On my visits to India, though not a Brit I have always heard more than a few Indian people talking wistfully of the days of honest British rule and very many proud and grateful for what joining the modern world as Anglophones has given them. You seem to be that sad sort of expat, a deracinated Sikh who has lost his roots but never succeeded well enough in America or the UK to feel otherwise than a resentful failure.

    I'm not sure what you think all the Abrahamic faiths have in common to justify writing of "Abrahamic ideology" in the Marxist or whatever other version you are adopting. Does Hinduism or Sikhism make more sense or promote better morals?

  • Lol gandhi never won freedom, he was controlled opposition.

    Second where does this perception that britain was better than soviets or nazis come from?

    It not only starved 100s of millions but took India from 30% of World GDP to 2 in 90 years. Both Nazis & Soviets can claim economic achievement at the very least.

    In top of that, they tried to convert entire regions to the cucked suicide cult called christianity (source of modern sjws you so complain about)

    Even until recently, it sent ‘aid’ in the form of evangelical or environmental ngos who wish to convert people or ban festivals however oppose bans on animal slaughter.

    Help stall electricity projects & then shoot a video about people with no electricity & blame the government. Why do you think they get scared when we test Nukes?

    After the collapse of america, they know london is getting hammered. These same christians are the ones who banned the olympics you ‘whites’ have so much love for.

    There were dozens of rebellions & hundreds of skirmishes/battles in the 90 years between 1857 & 1947.

    Many of the ww1 veterans especially Sikhs came back & became insurgents. Same with ww2,

    Notice how the first army to be deployed in Europa was Indian Army yet it’s never mentioned during remembrance day.

    So according to you, Christians predated Jews. I think your history is a bit weak.
    , @random observer
    I take it you mean the first army from outside Europe to be deployed in Europe, not the first army to be deployed in Europe.

    On that count, the Indian Expeditionary Force A units [I Indian Corps as they were eventually designated] appear to have been disembarking at Marseilles September 26-30, 1914. That is definitely quite early, but not surprising for a large body of already formed regulars such as the Indian Army could produce [Canada at this time was recruiting almost from scratch and its earliest battalions didn't even sail until later in 1914, not fighting until first Ypres in 1915; I assume Australia had a similar cycle]. So far as I can tell, La Bassee in the second half of October was their first battle, during the 'race to the sea' phase of the 1914 campaign. Again, very early.

    Nevertheless, not first non-Europeans to deploy or fight.

    I have a hard time believing the French weren't already pulling in Africans by the end of August but can't find dates for disembarkation in France quickly.

    The Moroccan division of the French army had, in early September, already taken part in the first battle of the Marne. It wasn't wholly Moroccan, to be sure. It included some Legion units which had Europeans in them, and at one point Malagasy troops. Not sure its exact composition in September 1914. But it was a formed body of troops from outside Europe that included mainly non-European natives.

    Isn't the Indian army mentioned along with the rest on Remembrance Day? They have an Indian Army cemetery in England where there appear to be commemorations every year. I seem to keep seeing documentary accounts of Indian service in France on TV, as well as, of course, plenty of reference to Indian service in the Middle East in both world wars. At Whitehall, when the national service is carried out, do they just mention Britain's own dead [that would not seem inappropriate; the rest of the old empire has its own services and commemorate their own dead, not Britain's specifically] or do they rhyme off all the then-Dominions and colonies and amazingly omit India, or what? If so, I concede surprise. I have never encountered any significant commemoration of the old British army that forgets the Indian army. Maybe specific engagements in which it didn't fight, but that would be it. They loved the Indian army.

    Entirely willing to concede the economic impact of the Raj for these purposes, but all I can find for combined total of famine deaths is more like 60 million. Not hundreds of millions. A figure that size would have come nearer to depopulating the whole country, depending on how many hundreds of millions.

    Also, famine, even when the ultimate product of exploitative policy, still seems to me morally distinct from rounding up millions of people for deliberate extermination, or rounding up peaceful villagers in such numbers and machine gunning them into ditches, etc. Even the massacres of the British required someone to rebel or riot first. The Germans and Russians were content to round up people by the millions for massacre even in the absence of any kind of resistance to their rule. The murder was the point, not merely a tool of suppression.

    So yeah, in an admittedly base competition I think the Brits were still better than the Germans or Russians.

    If you replaced a victorious but utterly economically, militarily and morally spent Britain committed to liberal ideological claims in 1945, with a victorious Germany riding high on quite different moral values, and somehow had India in their clutches, they might not have succeeded in holding India but they would have made a much more impressive show of it.

    I'm not an economist or a historian but I find it hard to believe that at any time in the past ~200 years India was 30% of world GDP. Can you provide a source for that claim?

    To what extent did the British contributions of technology & infrastructure (railroads, telegraph/telephone, ports, airports, roads, electric power, modern medicine, etc.) and concepts of government contribute to India's economic growth?
    , @MarkinLA
    It not only starved 100s of millions but took India from 30% of World GDP to 2 in 90 years.


    Even if this were true, and I doubt it, it would be because of the Industrial Revolution and what it did to Europe and the US and not the British causing a decline in India.

  • That the author can refer to immigrant ‘rights’ without spending one moment exploring why it might not deserve to be pursued as a great political cause is breathtaking: Immigrants have the privilege to take up residence when it is granted, and the right to be returned to their home country when it is not.

    In the tacit worldview of the author, "rights" are tools to overturn the established order (that is, power in the hands of white male gentiles). Therefore, people who quite literally by domestic law, the law of nations and custom are without any right to be in the United States magically have an extra-statutory supreme right to reside in the United States and enjoy all of the benefits and privileges of citizenship by virtue of being brown. I have no doubt that should Hillary succeed Mr. Obama in the White House and as is foretasted appoint several Justices, this "right" will be said to have been found in the United States Constitution.

    Gay marriage became acceptable because to oppose it meant losing your job or worse. People say they support it or have made themselves forget about it because of the threat that hangs over anyone who doesn't comply with the prevailing ideology, which is always determined by progressives using fringe groups to break up anything that smacks of tradition (or religion, God forbid!). In other words, most are lying. This is the same with race; being called "racist" is worse than actually BEING a murderer, rapist, or pedophile. SO no one can be honest about race expect in places like this, where we are somewhat protected. Like another commenter said in another article on Unz by Ilana Mercer, "I'm sick of black people." I'm also sick of gay people. The State determining what is right and wrong to believe is social change I can do without, whether or not I happen to agree with the whims of The State and its progressive moralists or not.

    Well, Puff, all you have to do to gauge a White Liberal’s inner racist, especially a wealthy White Liberal, is take note where they live. Without exception, their digs are far from Southside Chicago-style Blacks. For all their admonishments to the rest of us about our practical concerns they paint as racism, it turns out Liberals are pretty practical too!

    Hell, even wealthy Blacks stay out of “Southside”, so to speak. Wealthy Blacks, the actors, the athletes, the politicians, are all quite practical. Wealthy white liberal women, all VERY practical.

    Liberals, Black and White alike, are racist-practical for themselves, inclusive and diverse for the rest of us.

    Intrigued by the headline, I was disappointed by piffle that one can readily see in the Sunday WaPo or NYT. I won’t take the time to learn more about the authors, but they sound like faux historians, adept in manipulating the institutions of power (courts, SJWarrioring, nationalized governance) in the USA today.

    Whatever one’s views on marriage, why would a “social transformation” need to be effected through a 5-4 vote of unelected governmental officials? If you don’t yet realize that this country is increasingly ruled from the Imperial Capital, just compare that recent episode to the achievement of women’s suffrage. Many of your friends are unaware that the Constitution in that instance was not only amended in writing, but ratified (albeit by cunningly avoiding the actual State legislatures) in accordance with its terms by a supermajority of the states. Erased history, as we await the next decree from our rulers and other betters.

    Apparently Egypt under "the repressive military government" is worse than when it was under the Muslim Brotherhood. Thins are bad under Gen. Sisi who has called for a Muslim religious revolution. However, they were un-bad when Christians endured torture and beatings under Morsi.

    With these cultural marxists deploying the latest and greatest strategies from mass political psychology, its no wonder conservatives are browbeaten into accepting the various deviant 'causes'. Socially engineered mores enacted from a morality that views the state as the arbiter of social relations is about as far from conservatism as you can get.

    And Britain was a spent shell after WWII. All they wanted was to get the hell out of India. The costs of maintaining it were too high.

    Liberals endeavor to extract (forage) resources from their environment to survive. Given enough time the producers will be overwhelmed and environment will be depleted. Happens in nature, too.

    I think gay marriage has became acceptable because in the last 20 years, most people found out that some of their ordinary and clearly acceptable family members, neighbors and co-workers are gay. They have learned not to stereotype when it comes to sexual orientation because in actual fact (with only a few exceptions) being gay is no big deal.
