Sins of the Western civilization through history.
Are they grave enough to justify the current trend of Western nations sacrificing themselves and their citizens (children from Rotherham, women from Cologne) to Muslims and other such immigrants? Is it justified that news don't want to report speficic instances of these sacrifices? And that progressives ignore them?
Please discuss according to /his/ rules, this isn't /pol/.
They let them in because of the economic growth it brings. Free workers which you dont need to educate again.
Also, you made this a /pol/ thread the second you stated >Western nations sacrificing themselves and their citizens (children from Rotherham, women from Cologne) to Muslims and other such immigrants?
Why would it be a sacrifice in the first place?
>"The truth is that Mozart, Pascal, Boolean Algebra, Shakespeare, parliamentary government, baroque churches, Newton, the emancipation of women, Kant, Marx, and Balanchine ballets don't redeem what this particular civilization has wrought upon the world. The white race is the cancer of human history." - Susan Sontag
>Sontag was born Susan Rosenblatt in New York City, the daughter of Mildred (née Jacobson) and Jack Rosenblatt, both Jews of Lithuanian and Polish descent.
>Please discuss according to /his/ rules, this isn't /pol/.
>Are they grave enough to justify the current trend of Western nations sacrificing themselves and their citizens
And social services. In some cases they appearently even stopped father of one of the raped girls from saving her.
If that's not a conscious sacrifice to atone for the sins of the West, then I don't know what it is.
Businesses lobby for migrant worker programs more than immigration, if someone wants to get their foreign business partner citizenship or a visa that can be done very easily.
Mass immigration and turning a blind eye to the issues it generates is a political thing, you have successful immigrants, then you have ghettoization and a cycle of poverty among less successful immigrants, people don't want to look at the problems because they view it as conceding defeat or an attack on their middle class cosmopolitan lifestyle and in reaction they unilaterally push for more immigration.
/pol/-tier thread. Well how is anyone sacrificing children etc.
Immigrants have it way worse than anyone already living wherever they are immigrating. Few unfortunate events doesn't mean muslim are here to rape your children.
Unfortunate living conditions don't mean they get to come here and rape children and women.
Or do they?
And since I need to spell it out for you, sacrifice is meant in metaphorical sense. Fearing they might be called racist, authorities did nothing to prevent what happened in Rotherdam. Hey, at least they weren't racist, right? You'd hate that, having racist authotities, right?
>Are they grave enough to justify the current trend of Western nations sacrificing themselves and their citizens (children from Rotherham, women from Cologne) to Muslims and other such immigrants?
Why do you view these specific incidents not as just simply crimes, but "crimes done by XYZ, therefore it is a problem" ?
There are clearly problems with immigration to the West, but for some reason I can't seem to shake the feeling that you have another agenda, than simply being suspicious of immigration.
Do you think the ethnicity and religion of white people would be paraded if there was a grooming and rape ring done by them? (Which there have been plenty of I might add)
>>Do you think the ethnicity and religion of white people would be paraded if there was a grooming and rape ring done by them?
Yes, I do. Or rather, I think there wouldn't be no parade about it, it would be simply stated clearly and outright.
But when it's "men of North African and Arab origin", something is fishy.
In my view it all boils down to demographics that could be solved with increased native birth. If you rely on natives instead of immigrants you avoid the problem of integration/assimilation as well as whatever clashes there are. You also avoid the debate around "racism" like you have in America with African-Americans; the debate itself is a problem and distraction. Alternatively you could pray for robotics to fill the productivity gap.
>bigger economic base
What other arguments is there for large-scale immigration?
>it would be simply stated clearly and outright.
Yes, and then the people will be prosecuted and then the case is forgotten, but when people are brown people get their asses in an uproar.
you have absolutely no proof of that statement.
Conspiracy theories belong on /pol/ or /x/, boards that many of us have made the conscious decision to leave because we are sick of this bullshit, now please go.
Insults are not ad hominem you faggot.
>I'm not even from /pol/
It doesn't matter. Your racism is literally indistinguishable from the average /pol/tard so you can fuck off right back there.
Why maks statements that can be proved wrong by google?
>Rotherham Council are "in denial" over the scale of problems in the wake of the child abuse scandal and were are more concerned about protecting themselves than vulnerable children, according to a report.
>Louise Casey, the government's lead on troubled families, concluded the council is "not fit for purpose" following an independent inquiry.
>Casey said as well as displaying a "deep-rooted" culture of cover-ups and silencing whistleblowers, the council displayed a culture of "bullying, sexism, suppression and misplaced 'political correctness' have cemented its failures".
I guess this Louise Casey is just a stomfag, right?
Allright, first of all, if the authorities themselves made an investigation of this case, and found evidence of wrongdoing, then how can the very same authorities be behind a 'conscious attempt at atoning for the sins of the West by sacrificing women and children'?
One single case of people being woefully poor at their job is not proof of anything.
Of course there is such a thing as western civilization. Western european christian civilization post-charlemagne.
Do you also deny that there is such a thing as "chinese civilization", "arab civilization", "indic civilization" ?
It's a finnish way of signing a post. It's often used ironically.
No, it happened recently. I guess sorry for breaching your safe space.
If you at least insulted me in a 4chan-like manner, I'd think you're a shitty troll, but no, you're an actual rape apologist.
"Authorities" isn't a single organization. You might notice that by interacting with them in some way.
Allow me to ask. When you thought I'm wrong, why were you replying seriously, but when it turns out I'm right, you're suddenly only replying with shitposts?
I mean, the reality is what it is, it's true. You closing your eyes won't make it go away.
>me reading this thread
it's 2016. white people need to pay racism. come on.
> Western European Christian Civilization post-Charlemagne
Oh right, so we are only talking about a select group of countries that are Christian and located in Western Europe.
So countries that have been at war countless times since Charlemagne, do not follow the same religion, do not speak the same language, and have only recently adopted superficially similar economic and political systems are apparently of the same civilization, from which I assume we can then exclude all of Europe which doesn't belong to arbitrary Western geographical defition, as well as the rest of the world?
You can argue that there are has been an Arab civilization when these countries were united under an Arab ruler, speaking Arabic and following Sunni islam, whereas China is probably the only one I'll actually buy.
> "Authorities" isn't a single organization. You might notice that by interacting with them in some way.
I have a job, unlike you bunch of basement dwelling /pol/lacks, so I know very well what the authorities are like.
Which makes me even less inclined to believe in any sort of conspiracy on their part.
A conspiracy you still have yet to bring any sort of proof of. Need I once again remind you that this stuff belongs on /pol/ or /x/?
Political corectness isn't a conspiracy. It's the reality we live in. And reports confirm political corectness was the reason why nothing was done to prevent the rapes from happening.
Where's the conspiracy?
right, I am aware that apparently misguided political correctness was behind the negligence on part of some people in this case.
But the last I checked, rape was still illegal, as was child abuse, and nobody, right or left, has ever proposed that we change the penalties for these abuses if the people conducting them were Muslim
I imagine it must be nice to think you can pidgeonhole each and every person you don't agree with politically as somehow believing that should be the case, but nope, ask left or right, rape and child abuse should still be illegal.
So again, who exactly is sacrifing their children?
>Oh right, so we are only talking about a select group of countries that are Christian and located in Western Europe.
Well obviously. Are you clinically retarded or something? What's your definition of "western civilization" if not the civilization originating in western european countries?
>So countries that have been at war countless times since Charlemagne
Wat? What has war got to do with anything?
>do not follow the same religion,
Wat? What western european country is not christian? I guess you're right if you're referring to Al-Andalus, and I indeed do not consider Al-Andalus to be part of western civilization. It was part of arab civilization.
>do not speak the same language,
What has that got to do with anything?
>and have only recently adopted superficially similar economic and political systems
What has that got to do with anything?
You seem to be a complete and utter moron. Just because France and England spoke different languages and had different kings doesn't invalidate the blatantly obvious fact (well, obvious to anyone with a brain, that is probably not you) that they belong to the same civilizational group.
>from which I assume we can then exclude all of Europe which doesn't belong to arbitrary Western geographical defition,
The distinction was never arbitrary. Europe was divided based on religious lines (catholic/protestant to the west, orthodox to the east) as well as political (balkans were under ottoman domination and were de facto excluded from western civilization)
I suggest you, like, read a book or something.
>as well as the rest of the world?
Yes you fucking idiot, as it turns out the Zulus are neither europeans nor christians! Hence they are not a western civilization! Do you understand know or is your brain struggling to grasp that basic concept?
BECAUSE they come here on good will, get chances to adapt, assimilate and integrate, but instead spit in the natives faces.
/his/ truly is full of hyper-progressive, moderate ''Just-chill-dude-we're-all-the-same''-First year Philosophy and History students.
So very disgusting.
>You can argue that there are has been an Arab civilization when these countries were united under an Arab ruler, speaking Arabic and following Sunni islam,
Yes, you can argue that. Did you make a typo? Did you mean "you can't argue"?
>whereas China is probably the only one I'll actually buy.
But China was often divided along cultural, political, linguistic and religious lines! Hence there is no such thing as chinese civilization, we are all one race the human race!
Kill yourself you piece of shit, you are literally intellectual excrement.
>>So again, who exactly is sacrifing their children?
Look, that was just a figure of speech to make the thread more interesting, so to say. Obviously I didn't mean my statements about that specifically to be taken seriously. The point is that misguided political corectness and lack of inhibition towards accepting immigrants leads to cases like this.
No, I am saying that there exists no such thing as a Western civilization. Never has. It's just a term that was invented for political purposes, which has zero merit once it has been properly examined.
Your own definition even requires that you somehow lump together protestantism and catholicism, that alone should show you how broken a defition it is.
What similarities is it you somehow think these countries innately share?
Because as I've pointed out, there are major differences in religion, language and politics.
Revisionism and Relativism. Wow, so modern, so progressive.
You truly are the scourge and cancer upon this miserable golden cage that is the western world and that spawns miserable, self-hating scum like you.
Let me guess, you even live in a mostly white upper-middle-class neighborhood, go to a progressive, homogenous College and have NEVER EVER worked and moved a finger of your polished little pseudo 'Leftist' hand.
Go roll over.
right, if that's your point, I can agree that misguided political correctness is a problem.
But those few relatively isolated cases really shouldn't have any say in the broader immigration debate.
>No, I am saying that there exists no such thing as a Western civilization.
And I'm saying that you're a fucking idiot.
>Never has. It's just a term that was invented for political purposes,
I don't even know where to start...
I mean you're basically denying a whole chapter of unified european history, when the papacy ruled europe.
>Your own definition even requires that you somehow lump together protestantism and catholicism,
Protestantism and catholicism are very related since protestantism is an outgrowth of catholicism.
>that alone should show you how broken a defition it is.
Actually it just shows your intellectual deficiencies and historical illiteracy.
>What similarities is it you somehow think these countries innately share?
Oh I don't know
-cultural (music, literature, arts)
>Because as I've pointed out, there are major differences in religion, language and politics.
There are minor differences, but they are all part of the same supergroup.
Let me guess, you're swedish?
so I guess you concede then, that Western civilization is only a political tool, created to give ignorant basement dwellers like you a feeling of self worth?
As for your assumptions about me, guess again.
Reminder that governments are amoral. The introduction of the refugees into a country was done because of economical growth. Of course what they didn't know is that only the 5% of the refugees are doctors/lawyers
The surrounding countries of Syria didn't accept A SINGLE refugee. They knew the problems they would create.
Whereas Germany didn't. Those people were following Sharia Law. The women on their own countries were clothed so that you couldn't even be able to see their ankles. Now that they've come to Europe. They view our women as sluts and treat them accordingly.
They pressed on into our declining birth rates AND THEY WISHED TO HELP US BY FUCKING OUR WOMEN SINCE WE ARE INCAPABLE
Nowadays people are scared to talk. They might be labeled a bigot and a racist. But,fuck that I'm not going to stand and watch my country be reduced into a sandnigger's playground
You seem to confuse the terms "civilization" and "country". Probably a symptom of your acute mental retardation.
Honestly you're angering me. Please stop posting and go back to your cuckshed or something.
I literally cannot fathom how they can straight-out DENY such fucking obvious facts.
Those leftists would deny that the sky is blue if it went contrary to their ideological narrative.
Dude, don't get me started, this is exactly what the german media and politics are using to push the topics down since years.
There were things happening in other countries on new years eve aswell, just like in cologne. And also in other german cities. Bielefeld, Berlin, Weil am Rhein etc. etc. Wien, Helsinki.
Go on, say it again. After all, it's 2016, right? : ^)
actualy no, /his is full of poltards
regardless of weather europe is having problems with mass migration and its byproducts or not
if anything all you shitposting poltards are fucking up any quality of discussion on that
> Unified European history
So a bunch of countries that the pope had likely never even heard and certainly never visited, which all spoke different languages and were more often than not at war with each other, were apparently one unified civilization? I'm sorry, but you're the retard.
> Protestantism is an outgrowth
I take it then that that this Western civilization also includes all of the orthodox countries? As well as the Coptic ones? The Samaritans? All the Christians in China? What about the millions of Jews and Muslims that lived in these countries? Are they a part of Western civilization? Because if they can be, why aren't all Jewish and Muslim countries?
> music, literature, arts.
There is no common Western music, no common Western literature, no common Western artform.
Russia has more well-known classical composers than Britain, as well as classical literature that is among the finest in the world, read all over 'The West'. I assume Russia is Western, then?
No common Western philosophy
No common Western religion
no common Western military
Spain, Greece and Portugal were fascist until the 70's. Europe wasn't widely democratic until after the Second world war. Nearly each and every single country in Europe has very different constitutions, some even have monarchies for fuck's sake.
200 years ago, half of Europe declared war on France because they tried to create a republic. Some common Western heritage of democracy, indeed.
It served the Americans well in the Cold War, and has since served the EU quite well on top of that.
The notion of a common Western heritage and culture gives both the EU and NATO legitimacy.
These people believe in the absolute moral value of their ideology. Politics has replaced religion in their worldview; truth is irrelevant and only their arbitrary definition of what is good has value.
>So a bunch of countries that the pope had likely never even heard and certainly never visited, which all spoke different languages and were more often than not at war with each other, were apparently one unified civilization?
YES! They were western european civilization, you fucking idiot!
>that the pope had likely never even heard
Oh you must be trolling me. Nobody can be this historically illiterate.
>I take it then that that this Western civilization also includes all of the orthodox countries? As well as the Coptic ones? The Samaritans? All the Christians in China?
No, no, no and no. Because those weren't linked to catholicism (orthodoxy a bit, but the schism came early).
Christians in China, are you fucking serious? Are you literally this moronic?
>What about the millions of Jews and Muslims that lived in these countries?
Millions of muslims living in medieval christian europe? What bong pipe have you been smoking?
As for jews, it depends. They are a europeanized foreign culture.
>Because if they can be, why aren't all Jewish and Muslim countries?
I don't even know what to answer to such utter stupidity.
I think I'll just answer with "kill yourself".
>There is no common Western music, no common Western literature, no common Western artform.
You can't see it right now, but I am literally banging my forehead against my desk. No common artform? Are you fucking serious? Ever heard of oil painting? No common music? Are you motherfucking serious? Ever heard of classical music? No common literature? Are you fucking serious? The printing press made all european literature available to all european countries.
>Russia has more well-known classical composers than Britain
Perhaps if you're an illiterate stooge.
>as well as classical literature that is among the finest in the world,
Most of these 'refugees' here in Germany are young men in the fighting age between 18-35. If you go around refugee-homes here, you see nearly NO Women or children. Even our turks are pissed off at this scum majorly. Because even they are part of the WESTERN Civilization nowadays you deny. The Civilization that seeks to better man and defend his freedoms, and that of his kith and kin. Not the chaotic clusterfuck you have in the so adored 3rd World-Countries (Who only have their problems due to the evil white man, i know i know).
ALL over Europe these men rape, pillage and steal. They don't want to integrate, and with welfare they won't even have to.
And people are hopefully now waking up and the pendulum will wash you and your toxic ideology away, with all the barbarians.
Again, roll over and die.
>I assume Russia is Western, then?
Nope. Hey nigger, I never claimed that "best is west". Once again, you seem to have forgotten I'm not even white. I'm asian.
But your sheer retardness is forcing me to defend western civilization on a chinese cartoon forum. The irony.
>No common Western philosophy
Plato, Aristotle, Socrate, Augustine, Aquinas, Bacon, Hume, Locke, Kant, Hegel, Nietzsche, Descartes, Voltaire, Rousseau
All off the top of my head.
>no common Western military
I never said that the military was common you stupid nigger, but the military tactics were common. Military style, if you will.
>Spain, Greece and Portugal were fascist until the 70's.
You think that europe = democracy? Of course not.
Answer this truthfully : are you swedish?
When China wasn't in deep civil war it was busy swatting verious steppe nomads on its periphery (or the other way around). Confucianism promoted a kind of isolationism but in practice it would be totally wrong to describe China, in its 4000-5000 year existence, as peaceful.
>The surrounding countries of Syria didn't accept A SINGLE refugee
>This is what /pol/ actually believes.
> they were Western European Civilization
Because you say so? Because I really don't see how that is the case.
> they weren't linked to catholicism
Of course they were, they made plenty of contributions to early Christendom. And you can't just wave off the link with orthodoxy based on your own arbitrary standards, fuck off.
> Millions of Muslims in Medieval Europe
Spain, the Balkans, Southern Italy...
> The Jews are a Europeanized foreign culture
What the fuck does that even mean.
> Oil painting
The earliest incident of oil painting was found in Afghanistan. It has been used all over the world. Besides, how the fuck does the fact that a few painters around the continent use that method somehow legitimate the whole place as a common civilization? That is beyond retarded.
> The printing press, classical music.
The printing press was not a Western invention. It is certainly true that it was used heavily in Germany, and from there spread rapidly across Europe and, spoiler alert, the rest of the world as well. Or am I to take it that only people in "the West" print books nowadays?
As for classical music, plenty of countries in "the West" have no remarkable classical music to speak of, and besides, it was a hobby and a taste that was only available to a very limited number of people in those places. Hardly enough to constitute a "civilization".
Didn't actually have Jordan, Turkey, Lebanon in mind. They did accept a huge portion of refugees. The post was about Kuwait, Bahrain, Iraq, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates
>he's referring to the gulf states
Oh, you mean the United Arab Emirates (200k refugees), Kuwait (120k refugees) or Bahrain (5k refugees)?
Not to mention the Gulf States don't surround Syria.
Yes, Israel is an ethnocentric state that rejects non-Jewish immigration and hopes to ethnically cleanse its arab population.
You have made no proof as to why Russia isn't part of the West, I am genuinely curious, why isn't it?
> Random namedropping of philosophers
What's your point? What is common and Western about them?
Socrate, Plato and Aristotle would certainly have felt more in common with people in Egypt or the Levant, than they would have with people in Denmark or Britain.
> Military tactics were common
Countries that fight each other adapt one another's military tactics, colour me surprised.
> are you Swedish?
No, but your essentialist view of what nationality means is telling.
All the nice Buzzwords leftists always adhere to, it's so sweet.
You'd get along with the german 'left' (You people don't have ANY right to call yourself left) so well. Einzelfälle, Stimmenfang am Rechten Rand, Rechte Ressentiments, Rechts Gedankengut.
Aw, you'd love it, you little guy you. Now go wear that Che Guevara Shirt and scream ''Bomber Harris do it again, Germany never again, death to germany'' and you'll just fit in.
There are reasons the 'left' (Again, you scum are not left) are losing major ground in europe. And that is good and right.
The Gulf don't give a fuck. I couldn't see a secularised Alawite wanting to go and live in Saudi Arabia and the last thing Saudi Arabia would want to do is take in Shi'ites, Christians, Druze or Alawites.
It's all posturing, all they care about is making sure the Sunnis come out on top in Syria
>You have made no proof as to why Russia isn't part of the West, I am genuinely curious, why isn't it?
Mainly because it is not germanic.
Western europe is the combination of roman heritage, christianity and germanic genes.
Russia is slavic and orthodox. It is another civilization.
So, what's your nationality and what's your ethnicity?
>everyone who doesn't share my political opinions must be a loser!
120,000 refugees in a country of 4 million people.
5,000 refugees in a country of 1.5 million people
250,000 refugees in a wartorn country of 37 million people, nevermind all the ISIS and Kurdish fighters going back and forth across the porous borders.
>United Arab Emirates
250,000 refugees in a country of 10 million people (including the millions of foreign workers)
>Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia
It does seem those dicks didn't take in any refugees, yeah, although Saudi Arabia claims that up to 100,000 Syrians are temporarily in the country.
Hehe. Now he's grasping at straws.
C'mon, are you swedish? Philosophy 1st year? How's Stockholm coming along with that housing crisis? : ^)
But still i suspect you live in a strictly white homogenous community and you're just rebelling against evil daddy and the evil big brother that is the state. It's always like this.
What a bunch of delightfully arbitrary defitions.
> Roman heritage
I take it Egypt and the Levant are then Western, whereas Scandinavia and the Netherlands aren't?
Orthodoxy is Christianity
> Germanic genes
You can find Germanic genes everywhere, certainly also in Russia.
>I take it Egypt and the Levant are then Western
They would be had their not forgotten their heritage after being conquered by muslim arabs. Egyptians and levantines are completely disconnected from their roman past.
On the contrary, scandinavia is heavily influenced by its roman heritage, despite never being part of the roman empire.
>Orthodoxy is Christianity
My bad meant catholicism.
>You can find Germanic genes everywhere, certainly also in Russia.
Russians are slavic, not germanic. "Germanic genes" was just a figure of style, and was not meant to be taken literally (I should have made myself more clear, once again I overestimated your intellectual capabilities). What I meant is that western europeans were of germanic ancestry.
Now then, will you please answer my question? What's your nationality and what's your ethnicity?
> Scandinavia is heavily influenced by roman heritage
Lol, just lol. Not a single fucking thing about Scandinavia is Roman, maybe besides the alphabet (which is really Phoenician).
But Scandinavia isn't Catholic anon, neither is Britain, nor Germany, nor the Netherlands...
Again, you can find Germanic ancestry everywhere.
The thing that made me adopt these views is exactly that i moved into a big city in Germany with over 40% immigrants. And oh boy is it a charme. You adapt to your surroundings and what you see.
Do you live in America? It really seems like it.
I am confronted with the abomination of Multi-Culti every fucking day. Just as those Women in Bielefeld, Cologne, Berlin and Weil am Rhein. But it's just illegitimate fear, right?
Well whatever, your time is over, people over europe are waking up, and even though i don't even sympathize with these right wing parties in many ways, seeing that they'll put an end to your madness truly is bliss.
People will always react extreme to extreme situations, and infact, vote for extreme parties in extreme times. One time it's left, then it's right.
But it gives me joy to see all this scum grasping at straws, trying to hold up their faked reality of a working multicultural system.
>Lol, just lol. Not a single fucking thing about Scandinavia is Roman,
Large swathes of its cultural heritage is roman.
>But Scandinavia isn't Catholic anon, neither is Britain, nor Germany, nor the Netherlands...
Sigh, I already talked about that. They were catholic for hundreds of years, and protestantism is intrinsically linked to catholicism.
>Again, you can find Germanic ancestry everywhere.
Wow you've convinced me. I guess australian aboriginals were germanics all along.
Why are you scared about answering the question?
From now on I am going to pester you about your nationality and your ethnicity.
>the numbers aren't too high though
Well, the UNCHR estimates there are 5 million Syrian refugees in the Middle East, half of them in Turkey. >100k refugees is a high number already. Most European countries take in much less refugees.
Also, it's funny to see xenophobes in the Arab countries using the same /pol/ rhetoric to claim their governments are ruining the country by taking in refugees:
"Bahrain has rejected reports claiming it has been working behind the scenes to naturalise thousands of Syrians living in a refugee camp in Jordan."
"Opposition claims about mass naturalisation of foreigners by the state to alter the country’s demographics have been repeatedly rejected as baseless."
> Large swathes of its cultural heritage is roman
So first you accuse me of being Swedish and now, under the assumption of my Swedishness, you presume to tell me about my perceived culture?
Go on then, which part of Scandinavia's "cultural heritage" is Roman?
> they were catholic for hundreds of years
as were the Orthodox ones.
Are we just going to keep moving the goalpost until you have found a definition of Westernness that includes fuck all but which suits your needs?
>They let them in because of the economic growth it brings.
Isn't this basically because of the population growth? Why don't governments just encourage people to have more kids instead of only looking for a solution in immigrants? Less ethnic tensions, less crime, less cultural bullshit...
>as were the Orthodox ones.
No they weren't you fucking nigger
Russia for instance was NEVER catholic. They were converted by Greeks around the time of the great schism and as such have always been orthodox.
You know NOTHING about the subject. KILL YOURSELF.
But before killing yourself, tell me : what nationality and what ethnicity are you?
>shitpost because you append every post begging for his nationality or r u swede? XD
>fuck up, don't refresh, he replied within seconds of me
>you are such a retard you still thought that I was him
top kek, better than expected
regardless, Orthodoxy stems from Catholicism
Besiddes, by your definition, America and Australia aren't Western either, since:
1. They do not have a state religion
2. The majority has always been protestant
>Scandinavian Protestants have Roman heritage and thus are the heirs to Greco-Roman Western Civilization
>Byzantine and Slavic Orthodox don't
Even Romania has more Roman heritage than Sweden.
How about dividing every culture into different aspects such as:
And make different gradients of cultures. So rather than defining something as Western, you compare it as a distance from a certain core. Then you can draw "cultural circles" around "cultural centers" to make comparisons between countries and ethnic groups. So Tibet would be on the outskirts of a Chinese culture, just like Latin America and Russia would be on the outskirts of a Western culture and Malaysia would be on the outskirts of the Muslim culture?
That way you can stop pretending that Spain and Germany are the same culture, but you can explain why they are closer to eachother than to Syrians.
>have Roman heritage and thus are the heirs to Greco-Roman Western Civilization
I never said that.
What is it with /his/dittors and strawmanning. Are you intellectually incapable of not resorting to petty logical fallacies?
Ofcourse you can read all nice up about these things in the media, but seeing how the media refused to report it until social pressure went up and media telling people interviews that they will cancel the interview if the people talk about refugees in any way, yes that's really fishy and sows distrust and fear. I fear for my future and that of my family, girlfriend, and so on. Is that illegitimate? As a native to defend myself against a obvious threat? I am not blaming the real syrian refugees, but the criminal arab and north african scum, as they are vaguely described by our media, and that reluctantly. If you haven't experienced these thing on your own body and to the people you love, you virtually have no right to talk like this about it.
