The Year Was 2081, And Everybody Was Finally Unequal
(SBPDN is a really great site, but it's really hard to patch in here due to all the embedded graphics and formatting. Every other phrase is hyperlinked. You can and should go to the original site above, but this is at least a readable text. - HAC)
The pursuit of equality mandates the elimination of freedom and the implementation of unjust laws.
In essence, equality as the highest moral good is the embracing of injustice as the ultimate weapon to fight nature.
But nature will always win, no matter the effort to pretend she's not there.
Wait a second, what does the Gateway Arch in St. Louis remind you of...
It was only a few a days ago, in thinking about the majesty and true beauty of the Gateway Arch in St. Louis (easily the most powerful symbol of Manifest Destiny and Western Man's unabashed conquering of the North American continent) that a realization of what it truly represents hit me: the bell curve.
No matter the effort, no matter the number of programs or initiatives, no matter the number of zeros in the monetary investment, the failure for the black race to live up to the standards set by the white race in St. Louis seem inescapably connected to one unmentionable word: genetics.
Discrimination on the part of whites to hold blacks doesn't make any sense, considering the same drive, ingenuity and resilience of a people reflected off the Gateway Arch (remember, it was built to memorialize Manifest Destiny...) has now been handicapped to eternally help black people catch up...
The same problems blamed for high black homicide rates (and overall black failure when compared to white standards of civilization) at the time the Berlin Wall fell, are still blamed today when describing why heavily black North St. Louis is a food desert.
Black failures then (and now) are blamed on unemployment, drugs, inadequate housing and lack of education are cited by those who try to find the reason for St. Louis' epidemic, as well as leaning on "hyper-segregation" and isolation from amenities, opportunities and resources, making it more difficult for them to get ahead in life.
St. Louis in 2015 is 49 percent black and 43 percent white; the black population is solely responsible with keeping St. Louis in the lead for most violent American cities (homicide, aggravated assault, robbery, weapons offense, rapes, and non-fatal shooting suspects..).
This is why St. Louis Blues fans are scared of coming downtown (the Blues are the National Hockey League franchise).
This is why downtown St. Louis is a ghost-town at 5 p.m. on a weekday night.
“Right now the weather is bad, but even before, you could see something was wrong. We used to look out the window and you’d think this was a major metropolis, but you don’t see that any more. The street is empty.”
The government, both major political parties, academia, the media, and all major religions in America push equality with a ferocity even Harrison Bergeron would find shocking, but the reality of inequality remains obvious to anyone willing to consider an alternative to the madness of modernity: and this reality can be glimpsed in looking at the arch in St. Louis, a monument we will one day praise as commemorating the opening of the west to Manifest Destiny, but also to the reality of race.
For the Gateway Arch also is the perfect representation of the much denounced Bell Curve, a work whose primary theory that does far more to explain the continued inability of the black race to achieve the standards of civilization set by whites then relying on the boogeyman of white privilege to explain away high rates of criminality, dysfunction, and food deserts wherever black people in America are found.
