Tribalism is actually a biological survival instinct. The left wants to point to science, yet is quick to avoid science in order to promote 48 new genders and call anyone with discernment a bigot rather than a person who's survival instincts work. My culture is superior in that we found a way to legally create casinos everywhere while it being illegal for all other groups.
Nope. We created tribes, and see everyone else as simply not a part of our tribe. It has nothing to do with value of particular peoples, but simply value that one is in our tribe, and they alone are "us", and they alone are our responsibility. Are you responsible for people not in your family, to feed them, shelter them, etc in your home? We didn't tell anyone to sail across the ocean and invade our lands or to immigrate to our lands. We currently see opportunities afforded to us due to our tribal affiliations, and will use all available resources to protect the interests of our particular tribes. The modern White man could learn a lot from us about protecting your own. If you don't protect your own, you disappear, and you lose in the end.
Some groups are inferior because of the dogmas they adhere to or their inability to protect themselves from threats that seek to destroy them.
See that? That's a Casino called the "Hard Rock Casino". Guess why it's allowed in the state of Oklahoma. The Cherokees own it. Our tribes have used White guilt to the maximum that it can be used and will continue to do so, seeing Whites are willing to put up with it or feel obligated to do it, and why shouldn't we? Apparently we are "superior" because it's us that are getting our way, and doing whatever we have to do to protect our tribes, while Whites split into factions and attack each other like animals, unlike any other race or culture.
Now scroll down to the bottom of this link and look at the copyright.
We have free healthcare, free medicine, free food, and have a higher minimum wage, paid for by the Federal Government and Casino money. Isn't that a daisy?
And we were exempt from the penalty that the Affordable Care Act enacted on those who failed to get insurance.
---"The Cherokee Nation is funded by the federal government at about half its actual health care operational need. Remaining costs are billed to third-party insurers for patients with private insurance or Medicare or Medicaid. Remaining costs are paid out of pocket by the tribe."
That's which culture is superior. Now back to our regular scheduled program...
It's good for everyone, that even though they were 'not told to do so', the Pilgrim Fathers and the ensuing millions of European settlers sailed across the ocean and established their culture(s) in the territories of the Cherokees and the many other tribes in a land now known as the United States of America.
Having 'appropriated' their land the state aided healthcare and other social benefits for the Cherokees must represent the best deal for the ''The White Tribe'' in the history of trading arrangements.
I think the problem with words like superiority, good, right, and inferior, bad, evil is that all they really mean is "what I want" and "what I want not", respectively. Obviously, we draw our values from our own cultures, so we tend to see our own cultures as superior, good, right, etc.
However, it is undeniable that there are aspects of Western/Euro-American culture, and even more so, products of that culture, that are popular and desired worldwide by people of disparate cultures with vastly different beliefs and value systems.
The technological, social, and economic situation of industrialized nations are the results of the capitalist free market economy and the scientific principles founded on the intellectual products of the Classical periods (Greek and Roman), the European Renaissance, the Age of Reason, and the resulting industrial and technological developmental eras.
- If you want average lifespans over 70, then Western science is what you want.
- If you want infant mortality rates less than 40-50%, then you have to go with Western cultural models and the resulting nutritional and medical technologies.
- If you want plentiful food, which can be produced so efficiently that only 2-5% of the population is required to provide more nutrition than the society can consume, then Western agricultural technology is what you want.
- If you want better (though admittedly imperfect) protection from despotism, then the constitutional republic (invented in and developed by Western Culture) is your best bet.
- If you want freedom from widespread institutionalized, government-sanctioned slavery, then you would do well to go with the culture that actually made it illegal. (Yep, Europe and America.)
- If you want the widespread wealth, convenience, and near-infinite possibilities created by invention and innovation, then Western free market capitalism is the vehicle that will take you there.
- If you want personal mobility of class, status, and income, then you want to live in a society governed by Western social and economic models that reward individual effort and ability.
These are not the only things to want, but they are some of the most popular worldwide. It is important to note they are all the products of liberal democracy, formal logic, the scientific method, and free market capitalism, every one of which is an invention of Western culture.
Indications worldwide are that food, health, wealth, and freedom are almost universally valued, even if many of the specific collateral results prove to be disappointing to some cultures.
Hello again, a:
I dunno what you call superior. The Jews have been around for 6,000 years. They've survived slavery, the Pharaoh, the Red Sea, Goliath and the holocaust.. Jews are the TOP scientists, the TOP actors, the TOP lawyers, the TOP in academia, and they RUN the banks.. Not only that, one of 'em is god to millions and millions of people..
Other than that, they're just regular folk.
I'm not really sure I can think of a culture comparable in virtue to western liberal democracies, can you?
You live in a western liberal democracy and have been brainwashed with its cultural values, so it's hardly surprising that you would think that, is it?

if you got back into history you will see time upon time again of whites pushing their religion and beliefs onto other cultures because they believed they were superior. When Europe invaded African and forced them to covert while trying to ban some of their religious activities. Europeans came into America and had some of the indians convert too. But these days, i dont see people acting all righteous and like their superior to others. i believe those days are clearly written in textbooks about our past though
