Musings on Other Cultures XV: Ethnic Cleansing and Population Expulsions

The term "ethnic cleansing" connotes some of the most vicious moments in human history. Or does it? In fact, some of history's most progressive rulers used population expulsions as a way of improving their nation.

Let's look at some examples:

- Stalin transferred millions and millions around the Soviet Union. And in the process, produced a socialist utopia that we can only dream of in Amerika.

- In 1972, Idi Amin Dada, in a most enlightened move to revive Uganda as a true Sun Person's "black man's country", tossed out 80,000 Indians and Pakistanis.

- Over 300,000 Palestinians were thrown out of Kuwait after the 1990 Gulf War. (Needles to say, this is entirely different from the racist Zionist expulsion of Palestinians in 1948 after the Zionists provoked surrounding Arab nations into attacking.)

- The 1970 expulsion of Palestinians from Jordan -- again, an entirely different matter from what the Zionists do.

- The 1947 Muslim expulsion of Hindus from Pakistan.

- Jews have been tossed out of almost every country they ever lived in. These countries can't all be wrong!

- The Reconquista is coming! America belongs to the Sun People of Mexico, not the heartless Ice People who invaded from Europe.

- In 1978, the (legitimate!) Vietnamese government said "Bon Voyage!" to 200,000 capitalist "boat people". No more exploitation!

And on and on it goes -- a better life through population transfers. It is, after all, the will of the people; i.e., a democratic choice.

Will we ever have population expulsions in Amerika? Sure, the white people must go -- but at a minimum, how about transferring out the rich? The filthy exploiting rich. Someday, it will happen -- the working class will dominate.

Why can't we ever learn from superior cultures?

I vote "Yes!". We could do with a few filthy rich Americans up north.

One question: what would you do with wealthy people of colour?
