He said that the world crisis was from humanity losing the ethical idea of civilization, "the sum total of all progress made by man in every sphere of action and from every point of view in so far as the progress helps towards the spiritual perfecting of individuals as the progress of all progress". The abstract noun "civilization", meaning "civilized condition", came in the s, again from French. The first known use in French is inby Victor Riqueti, marquis de Mirabeauand the first use in English is attributed to Adam Fergusonwho in his Essay on the History of Civil Society wrote, "Not only the individual advances from infancy to manhood, but the species itself from rudeness to civilisation". In the late s and early s, during the French Revolution"civilization" was used in the singularnever in the plural, and meant the progress of humanity as a whole.
Judaism as a Group Evolutionary Strategy: Toward an Evolutionary Theory of Anti-Semitism: SummaryReviewsOrdering information George Michael, a political scientist at the University of Virginia-Wise, has written an academic article summarizing my writing on Judaism.
It also reviews some of the criticisms leveled at my work, and contains an interview with me. Legitimate Scholarship or the Intellectualization of Anti-Semitism?
Journal of Church and State, 48 4— Dialog between Joey Kurtzman of http: Is Kevin MacDonald Right? Originally published in by Praeger Publishers. Chapter 1 develops the basic theoretical perspective of the book, including especially the idea of a group evolutionary strategy.
Group evolutionary strategies are proposed to be theoretically unconstrained on a variety of dimensions, and the remaining chapters flesh out the specific characteristics of Judaism as a group evolutionary strategy.
Group strategies are viewed as experiments in living which can be developed and maintained by purely cultural processes, although a later chapter discusses how variation in evolved systems may predispose individuals to form cohesive, genetically exclusive groups.
Of critical importance are within-group social controls and their rationalizing ideology which 1. Chapter 2 discusses the evidence from modern studies on population genetic differences between Jews and gentiles.
This material is relevant to the hypothesis that Judaism represents a group strategy which is fairly but not completely closed to penetration from gentile gene pools.
The data indicate that Jews have remained genetically distinct from the groups they have lived among despite having lived among them for centuries.
In addition, Jewish populations in very diverse areas have significantly more genetic commonality than is the case between Jews and the gentile populations they have lived among for centuries.
This is illustrated in the following figure from Kobyliansky and Micle Jewish populations of the world: Genetic likeness and differences. Annals of Human Biology 9: Here is a recent New York Times article on Jewish population genetics.
The article is based on a study of genetic distance between Jewish and non-Jewish groups titled, "Jewish and Middle Eastern non-Jewish populations share a common pool of Y-chromosome biallelic haplotypes," by M.
Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences May 9, This page includes a figure from the Hammer et al. Chapter 3 discusses some preliminary issues which are important for the general theory that Judaism constitutes an example of a religion that can be viewed as a group evolutionary strategy.
There is a pronounced tendency toward idealizing endogamy and condemning exogamy apparent in the writings of the Tanakh. The importance of consanguineous marriages and extended kinship relationships is also very apparent in these writings, especially for understanding the activities of the patriarchs.
It is shown that much of the ideology of Judaism as an evolutionary strategy for maintaining genetic and cultural segregation in a Diaspora context is apparent in the writings of Priestly stratum of the Tanakh. There is scholarly agreement that this material was written by Israelite priests during the period of the Babylonian exile.
It is proposed, therefore, that Judaism as an experiment in living dates from this period 6th-5th centuries B.
Chapter 4 discusses those aspects of Jewish religious ideology and practice that have facilitated the genetic and cultural separation of Jews and gentiles, and is thus relevant to the hypothesis that Judaism is a self-chosen, genetically fairly closed evolutionary strategy. Of the hundreds of human groups in the ancient world, Judaism was the only one that avoided the powerful tendencies toward cultural and genetic assimilation characteristic of Western societies.MICHAEL TSARION.
THE IRISH ORIGINS OF CIVILIZATION. A young Queen Elizabeth with the High Druid during a ceremony.
One derivation of the word Druid is dar wydd, meaning "Superior Priest." The pseudonym of the British royal family, Windsor, was adopted from the Druidic Win de Sieur meaning "White Seat" or "White Mount." Of course, modern Druidism is nothing more than Atonism, and a far .
Is Western Civilization in Decline? I think nearly everyone in the manosphere would agree that it is. There is a lot of discussion these days about America and the other nations comprising Western Civilization being in decline, and there is certainly a lot of evidence to support this claim.
Richard Duchesne's book examines (the history of) the history of Western Civilization. He examines the economists', the historians', and the philosophers' understanding and . Western culture, sometimes equated with Western civilization, Occidental culture, the Western world, Western society, and European civilization, is a term used very broadly to refer to a heritage of social norms, ethical values, traditional customs, belief systems, political systems and specific artifacts and technologies that have some origin or .
The European political parties called far-right by Establishment politicians and media (but civilizationist by me) are justly criticized for their mistakes and extremism..
For example, the Sweden Democrats party in its first years, , did have some members with Nazi backgrounds and some who supported racist and white nationalist ideas.
The primary purpose of the College of Inner Awareness, Metaphysical Studies and Spiritual Studies is to train and educate prospective leaders for metaphysical ministries and schools through Distant-Learning or On-campus Training.
