When a nation casts off traditions full of meaning for its own citizens in favor of traditions ripe with meaning for immigrant invaders, the result is self-immolation: the spilling of one’s own organs and intestines to the ground by use of a sharp or dull instrument. The instrument of death handed to America by the Left, prepared in the fiery furnace of The Global Citizens’ Initiative movement is named multicultural diversity. Americans call it by a different name: suicide.
It is the defense of traditions global citizens rail at. Joseph Campbell in The Hero with a Thousand Faces wrote, “The community today is the planet, not the bounded nations. The national idea, with the flag as totem, is today an aggrandizer of the nursery ego.” Though Campbell has long since passed from the scene, his work continues through The Joseph Campbell Foundation. Its current President and Executive Director, Robert Walter, has written a book on the education of global citizens. It’s entitled, Educating the Global Citizen: A Mythic Perspective. Notice Campbell’s loathing of nationalism, traditions, and all they represent as revealed in his phrasing, “the nursery ego.”
Global citizens are aloof. That is the long and short of it. Global citizens cannot be the heroes Campbell and Walter adore because heroes would “enter the fray.” Heroes would engage their opponents. Heroes would dialogue with their enemies, sometimes utilizing riddles to display cleverness, knowledge, and wisdom. Global citizens have refused to engage Ann Coulter, Milo Yiannopoulos, or Charles Murphy. Instead they destroyed the field of battle. Global citizens set fire to Ferguson and Baltimore before they rioted in Berkeley, rather than listen to those they disagreed with.
What does one call diversity whose very face is intolerance? Hypocrisy. What does one call the party without a voice in a conflict? Victim. What does the aloof party in this conflict ignobly call themselves? Victims, victims of racism, sexism, genderism, and xenophism. What role does a voiceless victim (redundant-isn’t it) play in the Left’s show of hypocrisy? None. He is quieted. His thoughts are quieted. His traditions are quieted. Meaning multicultural diversity has been good for rioters, felons, and invaders; only for rioters, felons, and invaders.
