Aside

They despise the concept of “white guilt,” but never to the point that they’ll stop committing the crimes.

(Clarification: When I say “white guilt,” I’m not referring to an inherent feeling of shame associated with being born white.  All I’m referring to is a sense of shame associated with the behaviour of the collective group representing an individual.

“Albertan guilt” would be the lack of pride or sense of embarrassment one feels when seeing the destruction of the environment carried out by those comprising one’s affiliated province.  It’s not referring to some inherent sense of guilt or shame associated with being an Albertan.

The above quote holds true for either definition, in my opinion.

And it is interesting to compare the historic embrace of inherent duty captured in the concept of “the White man’s burden” to the rejection of the idea of inherent guilt that is being propagated by who even knows…)

New Era

Standard

In the past, someone like Samantha Power would not have been judged for her crimes until long after her death.

John Stuart Mill supported the British raping of India for humanitarian reasons · arguing that the Indian people were no better than animals and, thus, required hegemonic subordination in order to be helped and civilized.

Nowadays, an interesting dynamic has emerged where the intellectual class, whose biological niche is to give humanitarian precedence for ruthless imperialism, are being judged in their current era by a rising faction of independents from different sectors of society (including more honest sectors of academia itself.) It’ll be interesting to see where things go from here as a result.
