Since this is Black History month (how can we forget?), it is important (since there is no White History month) to pay tribute to the humble contributions that White folks have made to our culture and to Western Civilization.

I don’t want to risk bragging by enumerating the obvious and blaring it out like some digital-lit billboard on the Interstate, but there are a whole lot of accomplishments that any White person over the age of (hmm) thirty is faintly familiar with. Such as the Magna Carta, the US Constitution, the wisdom of ancient Greece, Christian morality, the Enlightenment, the King James Bible, the common law, property rights, religious tolerance, habeas corpus, universal suffrage, equality under the law, the Golden Rule, free-market economics, the abolition of slavery, respect for women. . . okay, you get the picture.

And the names, my gosh, where do I begin? Let us take note of Joan of Arc, Bach, Beethoven, Mozart, Leonardo Da Vinci, the mathematician Hypatia (d. 420AD), Michelangelo, Vermeer, Shakespeare, Florence Nightingale, Goethe, Moliere, Jane Austen, Isaac Newton, Christopher Wren, Charles Darwin, Watson & Crick, Olinto De Pretto, Samuel Johnson, Emmeline Pankhurst. . . the list is virtually endless.

My goal is to entertain as well as enlighten the reader with a few not-as-well known, or so-well-known but taken-for-granted inventions, happenings, and ideas, and a modicum of names of White people who deserve to be listed in the pantheon of The Great Whites. Let us begin.

Arthur Scherbius
Arthur Scherbius

Arthur Scherbius was a German electrical engineer who patented an invention for a mechanical cipher machine, later called the Enigma machine. He was born in Frankfurt, Germany and studied electricity at the Technical College in Munich, and then went on to study at the Technical College in Hanover, finishing in March 1903. The next year, he completed a dissertation titled, “Proposal for the Construction of an Indirect Water Turbine Governor” and was awarded a Doctorate in engineering.

He subsequently worked for a number of electrical firms in Germany and Switzerland. In 1918, he founded the firm of Scherbius & Ritter. He made a number of inventions, for example, asynchronous motors, electric pillows and ceramic heating parts; his research contributions led to his name being associated with the Scherbius principle for asynchrous motors. He applied for a patent in February 1918 for a cipher machine based on rotating wired wheels, what is now known as a rotor machine. (Thomas Jefferson invented a cipher wheel also.) His company also purchased the rights to another patent for a rotor machine from Hugo Koch—patented in 1919.

His firm’s cipher machine, marketed under the name “Enigma,” was initially pitched to the commercial market. There were several commercial models, and one of them was adopted by the German Navy (in a modified version) in 1926. The German Army adopted the same machine (also in a modified version somewhat different from the Navy’s) a few years later.

Just like all the other rotor machines, this apparatus had both electrical and mechanical systems. The mechanical part of the system consisted of rotors which were arranged along its spindle, a keyboard, and a stepping component which turned one of the rotors when a key was pressed and a sequence of lamps for all the letters.

The machine was used to encrypt any plaintext message and for every letter typed by the operator the lamp showed a different letter as per the pseudo-random substitution. The letters displayed by the lights were recorded as the enciphered substitute. When the key is pressed, it moves one of the rotors, so that the next key uses a different electric pathway, therefore, producing a different substitute alphabet for all the letters. The cyphertext is then transmitted to another operator who deciphers the message. As long as the settings of the deciphering equipment resembled that of the enciphering machine, the message could be deciphered.

Scherbius’ Enigma provided the German Army with the strongest cryptographic cipher in the world at the time, until the code was broken by Polish mathematicians in the 1930s, as discussed in the following section.

Marian Rejewski, Henryk Zygalski and Jerzy Rozycki

While Alan Turing gets all the credit for breaking the code of the Enigma machine, probably due to his cult-like celebration for being a brilliant homosexual and due to the hit movie The Imitation Game, it was actually three Poles who cracked the code. Their story is virtually non-existent to the public.

The earlier Enigma machines were adopted by the government and military services of numerous nations like Germany who used it to send and receive messages before and during the Second World War. The British and their allies understood the problem posed by this equipment in 1931 when a German spy known as Hans Thilo allowed his French spymaster to take a photograph of a stolen operating manual for the Enigma machine. The manual included all the keys and plugboard settings which the Germans used in September and October 1932.

The British and their allies could not decipher the message; therefore, they handed them over to a Polish mathematician named Marian Rejewski. Rejewski together with Henryk Zygalski and Jerzy Rozycki managed to build an Enigma double. They developed numerous techniques for defeating the plugboard and get all the components of the keys, thus making it possible for them to read all the German enciphered messages from 1933 to 1939. With the 1939 German invasion imminent, the Polish government decided to share their secrets with the British.

Less than six weeks before World War II began, on September 3, 1939, Lieutenant Gwido Langer, head of the Polish Central Staff’s cipher bureau invited British and French intelligence chiefs to a meeting at his secret cryptology centre at Pyry in the Kabaty woods near Warsaw.

There he revealed to them that his team, Rejewski, Zygalski, and Rozycki, had cracked the Enigma code seven years before and had been reading German messages ever since. This was five years before Alan Turing had even started studying cryptology – he was still working on a degree in mathematical logic at Princeton University in the United States.

The GC&CS (Government Code and Cipher School) in Buckinghamshire became the Allies’ center for dealing with the war-induced changes in the enciphered messages.

Since the Germans were convinced that their technology could not be deciphered, they continued using the machine for different types of communications with their secret services, in the sky, and on the battlefield. The decoded messages were given to a few commanders who used it cautiously making sure that the Germans did not find out that their cipher was broken.

Alan Turing, gay icon, will be the face on Britain’s next £50 note, which we’ll see in 2021 and is acknowledged as the father of computers. Turing’s legacy is carried on by the annual Turing Award that is the highest recognition in computer science since 1966.

The three young Polish mathematicians who were the first to crack the new German military Enigma code got their faces on a Polish postage stamp in 1983.

Claude Shannon
Claude Shannon

Have you heard the term “Information Theory?” No? Then perhaps you’ve been watching too many faux movies, like Red Tails (on the Tuskegee Airmen), or reading factvels (novels passing themselves off as non-fiction) like Hidden Figures (on African-American women involved in NASA).

Claude Elwood Shannon wrote the most important master’s thesis in history in which he, at twenty-one years old, applied Boolean algebra to switching circuitry titled “A Symbolic Analysis of Relay and Switching Circuits.” In this paper Shannon invented new mathematics to describe the laws of communication. It was a transformative work, turning circuit design from an art into a science, and is now considered to have been the starting point of digital circuit design.

In a 1939 letter to his mentor at Bell Laboratories, Vannevar Bush, Shannon outlined some of his initial ideas on “fundamental properties of general systems for the transmission of intelligence.” After working on the problem for a decade, Shannon finally published his masterpiece in 1948: “A Mathematical Theory of Communication.” He introduced new ideas, like the entropy rate of a probabilistic model, which have been applied in far-ranging branches of mathematics such as ergodic theory, the study of long-term behavior of dynamical systems. Shannon’s theories have now become the standard framework underlying all modern-day communication systems: optical, underwater, even interplanetary.

His theories laid the groundwork for the electronic communications networks that now lace the earth. As noted by Ioan James, Shannon biographer for the Royal Society, “So wide were its repercussions that the theory was described as one of humanity’s proudest and rarest creations, a general scientific theory that could profoundly and rapidly alter humanity’s view of the world.”

While Shannon worked in a field for which no Nobel prize is offered, his work was richly rewarded by honors including the National Medal of Science (1966) and honorary degrees from Yale (1954), Michigan (1961), Princeton (1962), Edinburgh (1964), Pittsburgh (1964), Northwestern (1970), Oxford (1978), East Anglia (1982), Carnegie-Mellon (1984), Tufts (1987), and the University of Pennsylvania (1991). He was also the first recipient of the Harvey Prize (1972), the Kyoto Prize (1985), and the Shannon Award (1973). The last of these awards, named in his honor, is given by the Information Theory Society of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and remains the highest possible honor in the community of researchers dedicated to the field that he invented.

But Shannon was also a fun-loving joker; he invented something called the “Ultimate Machine,” a machine—a box really—containing a replica of a human hand whose sole purpose was to turn off a switch that had been turned on by its user. Shannon approached research with a sense of curiosity, humor, and fun. An accomplished unicyclist, he was famous for cycling the halls of Bell Labs at night, juggling as he went. His later work on chess-playing machines and an electronic mouse that could run a maze helped create the field of artificial intelligence, the effort to make machines that think. Yeah, we call them computers.

As Stanford University Professor David Tse says, Shannon “invented the future.”

Oscar H. Banker

Oscar H. Banker
Oscar H. Banker

If you had never heard of Claude Shannon, then I can guarantee that you’ve never heard this man’s name. You should know it. . . you probably drove or were driven somewhere recently using two of his historic inventions — the automatic transmission and power steering.

Oscar H. Banker (b. Asatour Sarafian, May 31, 1895) was an Armenian-American inventor who patented a number of works, including an automatic transmission and power steering for automobiles. He is considered the “father of the automatic transmission.”

General Motors incorporated the semi-automatic transmission system into some of its vehicles in 1934, oddly enough the same year that Banker filed for a patent on the automatic transmission. The GM design had many flaws, leading Banker to propose his system to the company, asserting that it would be safer and more durable. After battling for eight years, Banker’s design was adopted and GM finally offered the American driver automatic transmissions using Banker’s design in 1940 in Oldsmobiles and Cadillacs, the first mass-produced automatic transmission vehicles. It was a marvel of engineering complexity that simplified driving so much that today, 97 per cent of all cars have just two pedals.

1940 Oldsmobile

In Banker’s memoirs titled Dreams and Wars of an American Inventor: An Immigrant’s Romance published in 1983 he writes: “America is yet the greatest country existing for opportunity, for achievement and if a person can endure the hardships, ridicule, rebuffs, whatever and keep on going! That is what counts. And absolutely nothing else.”

The Drinking Bird

It would seem that brilliant people have a penchant for designing useless toys if you follow the examples of Claude Shannon and Miles Sullivan both of whom worked for Bell Labs in the 1940s. Sullivan filed for a patent on his toy in 1946.

The drinking bird is an iconic desk toy, but can you explain how it works? The principle is unintuitive at first glance, but beautifully simple in hindsight, like only the most brilliant inventions are.

At its core, the drinking bird is a heat engine, not unlike a steam turbine or diesel engine. When the bird’s head dips in the water, it gets wet. When the water evaporates, the bird’s head cools. This temperature change in-turn changes the internal pressure of the bird’s vacuum sealed body, and the movement of the gases and liquids inside propel the bird’s motion.

The bird’s underlying principle is unintuitive at first glance, beautifully simple and a mesmerizing feat of engineering. The drinking bird illustrates many principles in chemistry and physics: boiling and condensation; combined gas law; torque; the center of mass; capillary action (wicking of water into the felt); wet-bulb temperature (temperature difference between head and body bulbs depends on the relative humidity of the air); the Maxwell-Boltzmann distribution; heat of vaporization/heat of condensation; and the functioning of a heat engine.

It’s best just to watch it in action and listen to the engineer guy explain it.

The Columbian Exposition of 1893

The World’s Columbian Exposition celebrated the 400th anniversary of Christopher Columbus’s discovery of America. (Or as Wikipedia says, Columbus’s arrival in the new world.)

There hasn’t been a World’s Fair in North America since 1986 in Vancouver, B.C., and the last one in the US was in New Orleans in 1984. During the Fairs’ heydays, wealthy and middleclass families would make pilgrimages across the seas to meccas of modernization to see the wonders firsthand.

Rather than trumpeting how great each nation was or could be, the Fairs became pitiful reminders of how desperate we had become. World’s Fairs don’t even try to capture the imagination like they used to. The 1939 World’s Fair’s Dawn of a New Day slogan exuded aspirational wonder as nations shamelessly hawked their latest kitchen appliances or technological innovation.

The 1964 Fair held in New York focused on Peace Through Understanding—how many foreign wars has the US engaged in since then? The last Fair in 2015 in Milan, Italy had as its theme — Feeding the planet, energy for life — it focused on ending hunger and developing food sustainability for impoverished nations. . . what a downer!

Dubai, a sheikhdom in the United Arab Emirates, bet billions of dollars on an Expo to rejuvenate its struggling economy. That Expo is now postponed to Oct. 1, 2021, due to the coronavirus pandemic.

But the Columbian Expo held in Chicago was probably the pinnacle of global mankind’s demonstration of striving for excellence.

Fredrick Law Olmsted, possibly the world’s foremost landscape architect, laid out the plan to build on a swamp requiring wood pilings driven into the ground to support the buildings. He also created a system of lagoons and lakes in which full size replicas of Columbus’ ships, the Niña, the Pinta, and the Santa Maria floated. 40,000 skilled and unskilled laborers (making ten cents a day) constructed the fair’s buildings.

There were over 65,000 exhibits at the fair covering 630 acres. The Chicago skyline was dominated by a 250-foot-high Ferris wheel, designed for the fair by inventor George Ferris. It was 100 feet taller than today’s Ferris wheel at Chicago’s Navy Pier and had 36 cars capable of holding 60 people each. Fully loaded, it could carry 2,160 people and took a full twenty minutes to make one rotation. The commission responsible for the Fair believed it couldn’t be done. But Ferris, embodying the spirit of American ingenuity and doggedness, built it anyway.

The color of the material generally used to cover the buildings’ façades, white staff, which was a type of plaster of Paris, gave the fairgrounds its nickname—the White City. Its scale and grandeur far exceeded all prior world’s fairs including the one held in Paris in 1889 symbolized by the Eiffel Tower. The Columbian Expo became a symbol of emerging American Exceptionalism.

The main entryway was a peristyle of forty-eight massive fluted columns on either side of an arch in the style of the Arc de Triompe.

Every US state built an exhibition house or building to show its products. California had, among other things, a full-size medieval knight on a horse made of prunes. Missouri showcased a replica of the Statue of Liberty made of sugar. Philadelphia sent the Liberty Bell to grace Pennsylvania’s building.

This was the first Fair to solicit exhibits from foreign countries and forty-six heeded the call. It seemed that each nation was in a fierce competition to excel the others. France built a nearly full-size wing of the Palace of Versailles.

On October 9, 1893, nearly a million people paid 50 cents to attend the opening where President Grover Cleveland pushed a solid gold button to switch on George Westinghouse’s electric lights that illuminated in a bath of brilliant whiteness the staff-laden buildings of the Fair. Nearly half of the total population of the US attended the Fair.

It is impossible to describe the awesome accomplishment of the White men and women who came together to create one of the wonders of the modern world. Everything about it was the biggest, the best, the greatest. It had the longest telescope in the world, the largest building in the world, and a choir of 2,500 singers.

A good book to read on the subject is Erik Larson’s The Devil in the White City. Another place that I really recommend is the documentary narrated by Gene Wilder titled “Magic of the World’s Fair.” Trust me, the documentary will amaze you.

If you watch the documentary, and I hope you do, you will be left with a sense of appreciation for what white people have achieved. Like George Ferris who was not content to allow the erector-set appearing Eifel Tower to stand as the crowning glory of civilization, there were others who motivated by money, fame, or ego, would scale mountains of obstacles, and leave their indelible record in the history books and in their genes for future generations.

You might also feel a bit wistful if not melancholy as you contemplate that White people descended to the deepest part of the oceans, climbed the highest land masses, and flew to the moon to go for a walk.

Can we ever attain the impossible tasks again? Or have we lost that intangible component, that antecedent of accomplishment, that precursor of victory, and that faculty of deliberative striving?

Have we lost it — our will?

  9. Just a point re the Enigma machine. This enciphering device was never fully cracked. Parts were cracked — often as a result of user inertia (senders & receivers would often use the same phrases etc to check in/out per procedure). And of course, the Allies threw the kitchen sink at the enigma problem.

  11. Yes, a fun and informative article. It is too bad that a gullible public doesn’t teach their children how phony lots of movies are. I had read a lot about Enigma so I knew Turing being a homosexual would be overhyped by Hollywood movie makers. If things don’t seem right then people should look for the truth. Most movies are falsified. It is now worse than any time in history unless one lived in the USSR.

    I rewatched The Martian in bits and pieces last weekend while doing some manual labor.

    The astrophysicists/rocket scientist geniuses who saved the day were cast as black men. Two of them. It also showed them as the only characters with empathy, and depicted the white Americans leadership as money grubbing insensitive sociopaths. The blacks had to lead up to scientific eurekas and humanity.

    When you work with blacks, and deal with the real world consequences of their incompetence and cultural insouciance, these depictions become intolerable.

    America is too infested with this lie of the Magical Negro to correct course. This article is super, but if we tried to post or reprint in MSM we would be branded as….insurrectionists? That’s the upgrade from White Supremacists since January 6.

    Christian white people were busy advancing all of humanity through Arts and through Science. Meanwhile the jews were planning their own “World Fair” in which the Protocols of the Elders of Zion were passed around and discussed, and 2 world wars and revolutions across the planet were being planned….

    1897: The First Zionist Congress takes place in Basel, Switzerland

    At Basel I founded the Jewish State. If I said this out loud today, l would be greeted by universal laughter. In five years perhaps, and certainly in fifty years, everyone will perceive it.”
    (Theodor Herzl, 3 September 1897)

    Where would the world be today without jews and their evil machinations? Even negroes could have been apart of that glorious new world of art and science. Negroes, with the moral support of whites, might have been able to pull their mentality and morality out of the gutter and the jungle and into the shining city on a hill. Instead they have been degraded, perverted and turned into jewish bullets to be used against white Christian civilization.

  22. JackOH says:

    Around 1990 I read a defense of Western civilization in a Plain Dealer op-ed that was astonishing for its persuasiveness and concision. My memory is very dim, but I do believe it was run as a reply to a bout of public Western civ-/White-bashing. I think the intent was to demonstrate that the bashers knew nothing of the civilization they were slapping about.

    The author placed Western civ as re-emerging about 1500 from a 1000-year dark night of internal warfare, and invasions or threats of invasions from Asiatic marauders coming from the east, and Islamic invaders from the west and southeast. The author’s genius was to portray the West and her peoples as profoundly weak, until they found the wherewithal to throw off the invaders and divert some of their war-making energies into exploration, trade, and, by God, yes, colonization and the re-introduction of slavery, too.

    I think the overall argument was that the West’s (and Whites’) biggest bashers seemed to have no clue that their public bashing has been enabled by the sciences and arts and political structures that were not to be found before the West got its post-1500 burst of energy. In a nutshell–the total demonization of the West by, say, American or European Blacks and others who choose to live in the West is a dishonest racket.

    My dim memory has not done justice to that fine article. I don’t recall that author’s name or credentials.

    Aristotle and Confucius were contemporaries. Aristotle was Plato’s student. Plato was Socrates’ “student”. Thus Confucius not “first”.

But here is one pattern to observe when recollecting the notoriety of, for a lack of a better universal term, women’s rights activists (some of which through no fault of their own have been given that descriptor posthumously): they all seem to be beneficiaries of wealth or privilege or both, and many of those seem to have borne their causes out of nothing more than boredom, that being a consequence of being born of or married to wealthy men of the time.

    Juliette Low, Susan B. Anthony, Amelia Earhart, Jane Addams, Eleanor Roosevelt; all the daughters of privilege who’s effort were the result of having too much free time on their idle hands (the devil’s tools, as they say). And aside from a couple examples of ill advised bravery, did little to advance the achievements of euro-descended peoples and in many cases in can be argued they worked to reverse or undermine those achievements.

    We have a black history month !
    Why dont we have history months for Whites, Chinese, East Indians, Japanese, Eskimos, Russians and South Pacific Islanders and of course Jews and Arabs??

    How can blacks (I mean Afro Americans) who were born here have black history ? In the US, black history is American history.

    What is even black history in Africa where each country has a multitude of tribes ? And whatever history there is is inconsequential. What ? On February 31st of 1669 Chief Bingo of the Bongo tribe drove 40 head of cattle over the Bungo river saving his tribe from starvation ? In addition, black history in Africa is submerged in white accomplishment with records started only when the white man arrived.

    Are these people so desperate they need some root to hold on to ? The black man never accomplished much. Even in Africa 99% of the infrastructure was white built and 99% of the infrastructure was black destroyed. Roads in Europe were thousands of years old at a time when transportation in Africa meant following animal trails through the bush with porters carrying the baggage on their backs.

    When Mohammed Ali returned from his fight in Zaire he said he was grateful the white man brought his Grand Daddy to the US. Dont blacks get it ?

    Personally, and I think Kamala should do this, we should have a holiday for black history. We should also have a holiday for every other race. That way we whites can take a rest from paying the bills and hang out idle every day of the year like most blacks do.

    Another curious observation is the absence of perhaps (European) man’s greatest combined achievement of technology and exploration: space travel, culminating with the moon landings.

    But perhaps the author was attempting to avoid the alternative theories of space travel that are held by many of the commenters here, and if that’s the case, good idea.

    Hollywood’s twisted view of the world is part and parcel of its whole system.
    It seems that in Hollywood’s depiction of leaders, they are almost ALWAYS portrayed as soft-spoken educated blacks, despite the truth being otherwise.
    There is a “method to the madness”.
    Many whites got their first depiction of (benign) black behavior with Sydney Poitier who performed in many films in the 1960s. Many whites saw Poitier as the typical negro, unlike reality.
    “Guess Who’s Coming To Dinner?” is the seminal miscegenation film although “To Sir With Love” is a close second, a white female student having a “crush” on her teacher. In real life, the negro teacher would have “taken advantage” of the situation and then walked away from his “baby momma”.
    Hollywood has always been anti-technology, especially when utilized by average Americans. Almost always, automobiles as portrayed as pollution-spewing vehicles while it is “trendy” for actors to be portrayed utilizing buses, subways and trains in their depictions of life. Living in a crowded New York City “walk-up” is also a part of the equation.
    All in all, “The Martian” was not a bad film. I did notice that “at the top” a black man makes decisions that “saves the day”.
    It is interesting to note that “back in the day” (1960s), blacks were opposed to spending taxpayer dollars for NASA space projects, demanding that “the money be spent to improve conditions on earth”. Blacks still do not understand that the spin-off technologies that are a result of the space program have improved life in immeasurable ways.

Then they started on about how because of the canals built as well, people were then segregated. That’s when I turned it off. The Indonesians have had over four hundred years to make a decision on their city’s future and they are still whining about the Dutch from centuries before. It’s probably a concerted build up to receiving reparations for the rebuilding of a new capital. So once again the white mans at fault.

    Fred Reed on mighty fine dust. (Meaning that when white men are gone from the planet, the dust will be remembered as mighty fine.)

    I would like to explain to Professor West a few things about this dread supremacy:

    We have White Supremacy, Professor, because for 2500 years we, whites, have produced the best minds on the planet, the greatest flourishing of the arts and sciences ever seen, the most complex and organized societies. We have White Supremacy, whatever exactly it may be, because we have been the earth’s most successful race. No other has come close. Deal with it.

    We put probes on Mars and invented the thousands of technologies needed to do it. We developed the symphony orchestra, the highest form of musical expression. We invented the airplane, the computer, the internet, and tennis shoes. Putting it compactly, we invented th
    e modern world. A degree of privilege, however you may conceive it, goes with the territory.


    permit me a brief and very incomplete list of things white people have done or invented:

    Euclidean geometry. Parabolic geometry. Hyperbolic geometry. Projective geometry. Differential geometry. Calculus: Limits, continuity, differentiation, integration. Physical chemistry. Organic chemistry. Biochemistry. Classical mechanics. The indeterminacy principle. The wave equation. The Parthenon. The Anabasis. Air conditioning. Number theory. Romanesque architecture. Gothic architecture. Information theory. Entropy. Enthalpy. Every symphony ever written. Pierre Auguste Renoir. The twelve-tone scale. The mathematics behind it, twelfth root of two and all that. S-p hybrid bonding orbitals. The Bohr-Sommerfeld atom. The purine-pyrimidine structure of the DNA ladder. Single-sideband radio. All other radio. Dentistry. The internal-combustion engine. Turbojets. Turbofans. Doppler beam-sharpening. Penicillin. Airplanes. Surgery. The mammogram. The Pill. The condom. Polio vaccine. The integrated circuit. The computer. Football. Computational fluid dynamics. Tensors. The Constitution. Euripides, Sophocles, Aristophanes, Aeschylus, Homer, Hesiod. Glass. Rubber. Nylon. Roads. Buildings. Elvis. Acetylcholinesterase inhibitors. (OK, that’s nerve gas, and maybe we didn’t really need it.) Silicone. The automobile. Really weird stuff, like clathrates, Buckyballs, and rotaxanes. The Bible. Bug spray. Diffie-Hellman, public-key cryptography, and RSA. Et cetera.

They are obviously valuable and great, and are the foundation on which the modern world was built. That being said, I think there are two important points worth noting

    1. The titanic was a beautiful, awesome ship; however most people really focus on the fact that it sank on its maiden voyage; In the same way, Western civilization was great, but it has basically died, and we are living in that wreckage.

    2. Most of the great wars have been whites against fellow whites; It is good to acknowledge our collective achievements, but we must remember not to be our own worst enemy in the future. No more brother conflicts for the benefit of (((bankers)))

It would be absurd and deceptive if I were to think otherwise. Southern Germans, for example Bavarians, often have brown skin and brown eyes. This was no doubt because of their ancestors being mixed with Romans, etc. But, the fact that “white people” basically were the agents that ushered in the modern era, is indisputable.

Probably the worst of Hollywood’s distortions in the past decade was the film “Hidden Figures.” Through the usual propaganda channels, in addition to the film, they managed to trick the herd into thinking that Johnson, Vaughn, and Jackson were actually mathematicians who were critical to the success of NASA’s mid-twentieth century space programs. First of all, they weren’t mathematicians. They did nothing creative. They were good with numbers, apparently, but being able to multiply numbers quickly and accurately doesn’t make one a “mathematician.” Second, the only noteworthy publication produced by the three of them (internal) had Johnson as the second author. This is the work that supposedly was instrumental in calculating Glenn’s re-entry trajectory (see While laudable work, this was a basic exercise in what was even then standard applied mathematics. This is the kind of thing engineers do. There was no mathematical innovation advancing a new numerical method like, say, the FFT (a high bar, but I hope you understand my point). Further, there is barely mention anywhere about the contribution of Johnson’s co-author (and first author), Ted Skopinski. For all we know he was the brains behind the work, which basically involved using a standard linear approximation (small perturbation) method to calculate desired satellite angles. Or maybe he was just one of those oppressive white boys riding the coattails of the more innovative minority. I don’t mean to impugn the work of any of these women.

    Will you stop your hatred and racism? Whites have a right to be proud of their accomplishments like everyone else and it’s only an opinion when you say “IT is not important what white people have done for the world” because if they had not done it, it probably would not have been done. Unfortunately, the truth is uncomfortable and not all peoples perform at the same level. That can also be seen in many sports where Blacks outperform Whites. It’s also possible these differences are cultural.

    I think the term “White” is more relevant in countries like the USA, Canada and Australia. Most people in Europe I believe still think in terms of nationality, even if the term “White” has seeped into the languages there. Before 1945 all people in Europe were “White” and Europeans have as much right to be proud of their accomplishments as anyone else, especially now that anti-White hatred is so blatant, constantly calling Whites “racists”, “White supremacists”, “NAZIS” and “anti-Semites” among other things and these insults are often aimed at Americans that changed their immigration laws to allow non-Whites to come into the US in large numbers beginning in 1965.

    This anti-White hatred is outrageous. No one demands countries like Japan, China or Singapore change their immigration laws to allow tens of millions of non-Asians into their countries but that is what is demanded of Europe and the USA. People demand that Europeans allow non-Christians and non-Whites be allowed to immigrate to European countries in numbers that are destroying the culture, race and religion of those ancient peoples. They are being destroyed and it is done out of hatred.

    In this interview the brown (presumably Muslim) interviewer claims Poland must accept Muslims into their country or they are “racists”. I think he is the racist for demanding that Poland allow its culture and people be eradicated. That is hatred demanded only of White countries.

    Here a racist Muslim says Germans will be eradicated and there will be no more blondes in Germany.
    Note: Gregor Gysi is Jewish.

    And here are the racists responsible for demonizing Europeans and other Whites and having these peoples destroy themselves. They are Jews.

Until 1965 the US was a predominantly White country and its immigration policy heavily favored immigration from European countries because they liked their country. Any American that said that today would be blasted as a racist by the non-Whites (including Jews) that the US graciously admitted to their country. That is a lesson for any country. Be careful who you let in.

    I completely agree with you. Furthermore, when it comes to the U.S. news media in general, calling it news is only true if the meaning of news is equivalent to the meaning of propaganda. It’s either out and out lies, each day, every day, or plain social engineering type propaganda.

    Calling it the “Golden Rule” was probably English, if you want to be completely literal : )

    That being said, the thought process behind the Golden Rule is essentially universal and axiomatic; people across the world and across the ages who are able to listen to their conscience understand that it is important to treat others with fairness and kindness. Because that is how people where created; in the image of God.

    Hey dumbass, the Golden rule while not “invented” by “white people” was ACTUALLY APPLIED by Western civilization (which was created by white people) thus making the statement accurate.

    Oh my, Lagertha!

    I’m a European heritage 63yo white American small manufacturer, operating a foundry (CoViD 1984 resistant and not available on Amazon!) I started 29 years ago that provides for dozens of my (can I say “my” ?) employees which extends to dozens more family members. Thanks to your words, I JUST NOW have realized my villainy.

    Can you help me find the MOST excruciating means of suicide?

    Can we stop talking about “white people” when we really mean “white men”? White women haven’t done sh*t. Giving them rights was the worst thing that ever happened to white people.

    It wasn’t long before the narrator was explaining how in the early 1600’s the Dutch built the city named Batavia over an existing village that they had razed. Then they started on about how because of the canals built as well, people were then segregated.

    The Dutch wanted a similar design to Amsterdam – with canals and merchant houses along the canals.

    However, what they did not realise is that the canals would lead to an explosion of malaria in that climate. Massive numbers of Dutch died. The Dutch East India Company was the richest company in the world at that time and Amsterdam was the centre of world finance.

    In 1733 an unknown deadly disease broke out in Batavia (now Jakarta), then the main seat of the Dutch East India Company (VOC) in Asia. Mortality among its personnel rose alarmingly and caused serious shortages of sailors, soldiers and craftsmen. Ever-growing numbers of people had to be sent from the Netherlands to Batavia to make up for the high losses. In the end, military posts could no longer be filled, homeward-bound vessels no longer be manned and precious cargo had to remain in Batavia. The unhealthiness of the town, ‘so deadly for the growth and prosperity of the colony [and] ruinous for the interests and finances of the Company’ (Nederburgh 1794), claimed more than 85,000 victims among VOC personnel. The ‘unhealthiness of Batavia’ remained unexplained through the ages. In this paper reasons for its origin and aftermath are proposed.

    The Indonesians filled in the canals and now the main roads of Jakarta often run along the lines of the canals. In the map below, you can clearly see how entrances from the sea got transformed into roadways.

    My pet theory as to the dynamic behind places and times of high achievement:

    Ancient Greece and then Europe achieved so much because there was intense competition and rivalry between polities that nevertheless existed within a common framework with open communication between them.

    The Greek City States fought constantly and sometimes exterminated each other, yet, obviously, they recognised their common identity; and their men of culture moved freely throughout Hellas. They developed their fighting techniques and weapons against each other; and these turned out to give them an overwhelming advantage against the Orient as a side-benefit rather than an intended effect.

    Europe was a patchwork of cities, states, bishoprics, kingdoms, duchies, and so on, but all existed within a common framework known as Christendom, which had a common medium of communication, Latin. Italy reproduced this whole patchwork on a smaller scale and produced the Renaissance; early to late modern Europe was a field of near constant intra-European power struggle and warfare, which produced the scientific revolution, the industrial revolutions, and the modern world. Said warfare led to an accelerating arms race that, as with the Greeks, turned out to give us an overwhelming advantage against the entire rest of the world (not merely from military technology, of course, but from superior organisation, communications, and productive industry as well). Open communications, of course, meant that no one state could keep their advances to themselves for long, thus ensuring the continuation of the arms race.

    So, competition within a common framework is what drives progress, like opponents on a multi player chessboard driven to intense concentration by their mutual rivalry, yet nevertheless all operating within the same system; and, of course, it helped that Europe had so many sources of culture from the past and from elsewhere to draw upon, in addition to its own.

  112. You barely touched on one of my two American inventor heroes – George Westinghouse. My other hero is Major Edwin Howard Armstrong.

    George Westinghouse was the inventor of the air brake for application on trains. Up until his invention, the railroads depended on “brakemen” to manually apply brakes to stop the train. This system of brakemen manually applying brakes resulted in the loss of thousands of lives in train wrecks. Westinghouse’s invention put an end to the manual application of brakes by brakemen and because of the implementation of Westinghouse’s air brake invention, countless thousands of lives were saved.

    George Westinghouse also employed and worked closely with Nikola Tesla, treating Tesla with the utmost respect and dignity, very much the opposite of how Tesla was treated by Thomas A. Edison. Westinghouse also treated his employees with respect and dignity, never once experiencing a labor stoppage by any of his workers. When George Westinghouse died, there was a tremendous outpouring of grief by his employees, as the Westinghouse employees loved their leader. Contrast that with the labor relations of the late 20th and 21st centuries! The reader would do well to watch the PBS video ‘Westinghouse” – it goes into great detail about what an honest and honorable man Westinghouse was.

    Major Edwin Howard Armstrong was a prolific inventor of radio circuitry. He invented the regenerative, the super-regenerative and the superheterodyne radio circuits. Unlike Lee deForest, who invented the first 3-element vacuum tube (the triode) and did not even understand how it worked (!), Armstrong completely understood the principles of how the tube worked and developed circuitry that would detect radio signals, as well as amplify them and generate them. Armstrong also single-handedly developed the frequency modulation (FM) broadcasting technology. Up until the invention of FM, it was widely assumed that “static” (interference caused by lightning storms) would always be a part of radio reception and that there would be no escaping the problem of static.

    Armstrong’s FM system completely eliminated static caused by lightning storms and also made possible the transmission of radio signals that were true “high fidelity” – a quality unheard of in AM broadcasting. In addition to FM, Armstrong worked with the American and British armed forces in developing a vastly improved radar system. If it were not for Armstrong’s inventions, AM & FM radio, television and cell phones would not be what they are today.

    Armstrong’s inventions and patents were stolen from him by such corporations as RCA and Motorola. These corporations used Armstrong’s inventions but refused to pay him the royalties due to his owning the patents covering those inventions. Armstrong became so despondent over all of the court battles that he took his own life on February 1, 1954. After Armstrong’s death, his wife continued wit the court battles and WON EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM. Again, the reader would do well to watch the PBS video “Empire of the Air: The Men Who Made Radio” – it actually tells the truth about Armstrong and his accomplishments.

    Having amateur radio (ham radio) as my hobby, I owe a great debt of gratitude to Armstrong’s many inventions.

    Thank you.

    Can we ever attain the impossible tasks again?

    Yes. Yes you can. By pitting Europe against Russia and Iran, and India, Pakistan and Australia vs China. As an added bonus, keeping in mind that France, Britain, India, Pakistan, Russia, and China are nuclear weapons equipped nations, somebody is bound to start tossing these things hither an’ yon.

    It will be extremely important that the US and Israel maintain utter neutrality. Then, as was the case after WW2, with the world’s economies and manufacturing base shattered, with the US relatively unscathed, America will once again claim it’s place as a nation among nations.

    Who cares if the joint is irradiated?
