So, should our thinking and development progress with time, or should it always stay the same, regardless of the passage of time?
Who gets to make that decision?
Natural law is the higher authority. The author flirts too much with egalitarian notions. Such notions have often been used as a fig leaf by communists. Who decides what, who and when is equal? How do they do it?
“The alternative would be to tell less successful groups that the reason theyve failed is that theyre lacking in natural capacity or theres something wrong with what theyre doing...”
In a nutshell, leftists wish to tell such people that they are being oppressed by another group, those who are opposed to leftism.
But conservatives point out that it is, indeed, something the group is doing that is, pure and simply, wrong and needs to be changed.
Cutting to the chase, if you look at slave-descended black Americans today, almost every problem they face has a single, original cause. And it’s *not* racism by others.
It is the willingness to have sex and children outside of marriage. That is it. Simple and straightforward. If SD black America stopped doing this, most of their problems would evaporate in a generation or two, and they would be like every other ethnic group in the US.
And I can prove it.
African immigrants have been coming to America in increasing numbers in the last few decades. But unlike SD black Americans, these immigrants are *succeeding*, just like any other immigrant can. Why? Because they do not have sex or children outside of marriage.
Even they can tell that SD black Americans are dysfunctional. And there is no way that can be attributed to racism. The immigrants look at the SD way of life and see that it is wrong, and is destroying them as a people.
And the immigrants don’t want that.
SD black Americans were rapidly improving their lot in the US in the 1950s. The Civil Rights movement was so successful because SD black Americans were focused on success, and could no longer tolerate barriers to that success.
But with success came disaster. Noam Chomsky created “whole language” English, that when introduced into schools stripped English language skills from black Americans in just a decade. Functionally illiterate, the rest of school became impossible, and they were consigned to poverty and despair.
But even that was not enough. The most destructive change was cultural, encouraging black youths to have sex and children outside of marriage. To think that marriage was a “white thing”, illegitimacy was unimportant, and that the government would pay them to be irresponsible.
The destructive effects of this may over time wipe out SD black Americans.
But what about the Catholic church? Should they believe the excuse that somebody is “keeping the black man down?”, or should they clearly see the truth, that marriage and family, that *they* advocate, is not just ritual, but essential. Vital.
And if they truly want to help others, the best way is to convince them that morality and biology are not mutually exclusive. That while heaven may intercede to punish vice, it often does not need to, because vice brings with it its own punishment.
