Musings on Other Cultures XI: Slavery

As we know, slavery exists everywhere on Earth. But slavery differs in the various parts of the world -- from the benign practices in Mauritania and Sudan to the shame of the ongoing American slavery of African-Americans, operated by you-know-who. Of course, all capitalism is slavery, which in itself is an indictment of Amerika and its Zionist puppet masters.

That said, what shall we do about slavery? Is it beneficial because it is a feature of Islamic societies? Or is it wrong because it was (and still is!) practiced in Amerika?

As with other such dilemmas, it is useful to remember the Law of Relativity: No act is wrong if it is practiced in a superior culture. Hence, the laws of logic (and physics) dictate that it would be immoral for Amerikans to dictate morality to African Sun People and to the adherents of Islam. It's quite the reverse, in fact: We can learn much from them!

Now, you ask, "Professor Kurgman, what can we learn from slave owners in Sudan?" And I respond by saying, "We don't know what we can learn from them because we haven't learned it yet!" It is similar to being in my class. That is, pupils start the semester with empty cranial cavities that yearn for knowledge and hunger for justice. But not only do they not know what they will learn, they are initially unaware that these things even exist. For example, they will learn how to resist the oppressive hegemonic forces that they will encounter in life -- but on the first day, many are unaware that they are already victims!

Similarly, we must listen to African slave owners so that they can teach us things that we never knew existed. Yes, for once, I will be the student. And my students, being several academic degrees removed from me, will require my interpretative skills to translate the complexity of Sun Thought for their minds that have been, to a great extent, irreversibly damaged by their parents and Amerikan thought-poisoning.

It makes me wonder how the state can save our children before their empty minds are defiled. That is, if public school is mandatory at the age of six, then why not make school mandatory, "24/7", from birth?

That is a topic for another time. And yet, I can already see the parallels between state-raised children and the benevolent modern-day slavery in Africa. If we work together, then we, as a society and as a community, will make it happen.
